Auction.ph launches AdAuction for local bloggers
A local online market service has just launched AdAuction, a self-serve affiliate marketing program specifically targeted to bloggers. I receive a couple of emails for several of my niche blogs about it today.
AdAuction is an innovative new system that allows you to earn money from your blog or website. Simply display our preformatted ads on your page and earn a commission for every successful transaction resulting from the ad on your page. Web Advertising can’t get any easier than this. All you need is a blog or website, an AdAuction account, a little time and patience and you’ll be on your way to earning easy cash! No minimum page view requirements. For additional details, you may visit http://ad.auction.ph
Simply put, AdAuction is your local version of Amazon Associates or Chitika. The only difference is that commissions are computed differently:
Auction.ph levies a commission fee from Sellers at Auction.ph for using the AdAuction system. Publishers (AdAuction Members) earn a percentage of that commission fee for every successful transaction that originates from their website. A transaction is considered successful when a Buyer (coming from the publisher’s site) clicks on an AdAuction ad, and confirms purchase of the item. Publishers are entitled to 60% of the commission fee. The current commission fee in effect is P10.00 per successful transaction. Commission fees may be adjusted at any time by Auction.ph.
If my understanding is correct, any items sold in the online marketplace (irrespective of their selling price) will only earn the referring Publisher/blogger a flat commission fee of Php10 (roughly ~$0.20). The site allow members to sell anything from simple clothing to a second hand car and you as the affiliate will earn the same amount whatever was successfully sold.
I’m not sure that will work in favor of the Publishers. I currently ran a couple of Amazon Associate referral ads on my blog and once I was able to refer a buyer who bought a digital camera thru my affiliate links. I got about $6.50 (~Php300+) commission for it. If I was able to refer the same sale at AdAuction, will I only earn Php10?
Huge difference. You be the judge.
