Affiliates, I am currently finalizing my e-commerce shop (selling Chinese tea) and will also launch an affiliate prg. As I am new to all this I have a few question for seasoned affiliates; I will offer (4) free tea samples to users who sign up to my weekly newsletter. My initial thought was to have affiliates promote my shop and especially the "Free Samples" offer. My research show that 4 free tea samples is in high demand and costumers love it, paired with that we have very cheap shipping from China, which means costumers will only pay around $3 for shipping. No other shop offer this. And now finally my question Will affiliates promote the free samples offer and in return that costumer will be theirs, affiliates will then receive 10-15% commission on that costumers future purchase(s) I guess you can say my offer converts on valid email submit, however, there is no immediate payout. I am simply afraid to be scammed if I offer money just for the email registration. Am I being totally naive?
