    I know that this is a very stupid question but i have always been confused.. And i didnt want to ask because i didnt want to bother people.. ive googled it and it only showed like "join this affiliate site" and stuff like that..

    I thought that affiliates were referrals.. Like u earn a percentage of what they make.. like referal links.. So what is an affiliate site or w.e? Sorry i know this is a dumb question.. thank you if u can help

    Affiliate site is basically you send traffic to the main site. You get a percentage of the sale from traffic that YOU sent over.

    Affiliates is just sent visitor to Seller sales page and if buyer purchase the product you will get certain % of the commission. The certain % depend on what they offer you. You can always check with them how much commission they are going to pay you. Hope that help.
