Frequently Asked Questions and Answers
Q. How do I make money with the website?
The site attracts a targeted visitor who are searching for the cheapest hotel deals so the click-through rate to commissions is extremely high!
Even a small amount of daily visitors can earn great commissions. Just 50 visitors a day can realistically earn you $50 to $100+.
Your site visitors do NOT have to book a room for you to get paid. Each time a visitor clicks through to any particular hotel listings you earn commissions ranging from between $0.50 and $1.00 (USD) on average. When you consider that each visitor will browse 2 or 3 hotel listings then they can earn you around $1 to $2 on average per visit!
Flight search leads vary, again your visitor does not have to book a flight, and you’re paid for the lead. So when your visitors search and click through to the cheapest available airline/travel site, you can earn aprox $0.40.
The Earnings are monitored in the affiliate accounts that you will sign up for during the integration process when we are setting up the website for you.
Q. Who pays me?
The affiliate accounts have a payment section where you fill out your payment details for payments to be released to you once you reach the threshold. You usually add these payment details after i finish the integration that way you can keep your information private.
As visitors browse through the travel website and some also make bookings, the two affiliate accounts record their activities on the website and earnings are calculated on these activities by the affiliate accounts, you can also monitor it yourself by logging into the affiliate account that you will sign up for in the process of setting up the website. it takes about 3 minutes to sign up for both affiliate accounts.
