Infibeam is yet another popular Indian e-Commerce site like Flipkart which specializes in selling books primarily. Besides books it is a retailer for electronic equipments too. Infibeam also offers an affiliate program so that you can earn money by selling their products. If you have read my previous post: How to Earn Money from Flipkart ? you would know what Affiliate Program is. Lets get started by signing up.
Infibeam Affiliate Program: Sign Up Link
It has decent commission rates giving away 5% for Books, Apparel and Lifestyle which is good as people in India have started to buy clothes and apparels online. You can earn money from Infibeam by promoting books mainly as the books on Infibeam are sometimes cheaper than Flipkart.
How it Works ?
Infibeam affiliate program works the same way as flipkart affiliate i.e you need to refer visitors to Infibeam who buy the products there which gains you some percentage of commission as per the category of the product.
After you log in to the Infibeam affiliate panel, you can view your unique ‘affiliate id’ which you have to add after adding ‘&trackId=’ at the end of the product link. Your affiliate link to promote a product for e.g would look like:
