Frequently asked questions
What is an affiliate?
An affiliate, also known as a publisher, is a website owner who hosts advertising materials on their website for another online trader or business. The website owner receives payment from the online trader if visitors to the website become customers as a result of clicking on the hosted links.
What is an advertiser?
An advertiser or merchant is an online trader (e.g. business) that makes their advertising materials (banner advertisements, text links etc.) available with the aim of increasing sales in their online shop.
How does the Affiliate Marketing Programme work?
The Affiliate Marketing Programme is based on the principle of a referral fee. Potential customers are "referred" online by the website owner and sent to our website via a link. An affiliate link contains a special code that is used by the trader to uniquely identify the affiliate. In other words, the trader can tell which website the customer was sent from using the special link containing the affiliate ID. The affiliate receives commission for each sale that takes place as a result of a customer clicking on the advertising on their website (banners and text links).
Using these online cooperation management systems, companies are able to market their products and services through links on affiliate websites. Commission is only paid for actual sales or another measurable achievement.

Will I incur costs?
You will not incur any costs! Registration and participation are free and non-binding.
Can I take part if I have more than one website?
Yes, you can also take part in the programme if you have multiple websites. Each of your websites is treated as an individual affiliate site. However, please make sure that the customer is assigned only to the last site they visited.
How is the fee determined?
Each time a purchase is made on Viking.de through a link on your site, you will receive a fee. This fee is paid monthly. You will find more detailed information on fees and payment on the corresponding affiliate network sites.
How does tracking work?
Companies are able to track referrals using cookies that are set when a user clicks on an online advertisement. This makes it possible to match each purchase on Viking.de to the customer and the website they originated from.
