    Why do some affiliates offer 100% of their commission on a sale as the discount??

    Effectively earning them a whopping great $0 per sale.

    I just looked for a discount on seo powersuite and sure enough plenty of people are giving the full $197 commission as a discount.

    What's in it for the affiliate in giving 100% of the commission as a discount to the user?

    Some products have upsells.. Where an affiliate can make more money. Law of reciprocity.. Give a little, get a lot.

    Offer whole commission as a discount and make that back through upsells.

    Upselling and list building. High commissions get more affiliates to push your product.

    Where do the up sells occur?

    a. On the affiliates page. (other products the affiliate is pushing)

    b. After the user has clicked through (on the product owners site)


    List building I can understand.
