How to make commission-free sales

Since the beginning of time (or at least 2008) we’ve been sweating the small stuff so that you don’t have to. But when you go the extra mile to drive traffic to your business, we think it deserves recognition. Unfortunately, we can’t track each of you down individually for a hearty pat on the back, but that got us thinking: is there another way we can acknowledge these above-and-beyond efforts?

The answer is yes: commission-free sales. We want to make sure you have the tools you need to succeed on Bonanza, and we feel that sharing information about how to make commission-free sales can help with that.

There are three ways to receive commission-free traffic:

  1. Use a website as a free traffic source
  2. Use your free referral link in your own marketing efforts
  3. Create a customer marketing coupon

Commission-free means that when you make a sale as a result of the above efforts, you won’t pay any final value fees. These sales include any sales made to buyers whose last arrival to Bonanza came via one of these three methods.

Why do we look at the last arrival to Bonanza?
