Now let´s get to the highlight of v3.6.4:

support for MapsMarker affiliate links instead of default backlinks

A week ago the Maps Marker Affiliate Program at https://www.mapsmarker.com/affiliates was launched. Affiliate programs are common throughout the Internet and offer website owners an additional way to profit from their websites. Affiliates generate traffic and sales for commercial websites and in return receive a commission payment.

The Maps Marker Affiliate Program is free for everyone to join and offers an initial 25% commission for each sale delivered and the commission rate gets increased automatically by 1% for each €250 commission earned – up to a maximum of 50%!

In addition we offer 3-tier-levels: recruit new affiliates and receive an additional 5% commission from their sales on each level. For more details about our affiliate program and payout examples please visit https://www.mapsmarker.com/affiliates/

By default, a backlink pointing to https://www.mapsmarker.com/go is added to each map you create (with the pro version you can disable this backlink). With v3.6.4 you can now replace this default backlink with your personal affiliate link. This means if a visitor of your site click on this link and buys a pro license afterwards, you will get a commission of at least 25% of the sales volume.

Please note that within the affiliate dashboard you will also be supplied with a range of banners and textual links that you can place within your site.

If you have any more questions about the affiliate program, please also check the affiliate FAQ and the affiliate agreement – if your question is not answered there, please send an email to affiliates(a)mapsmarker.com – we will be glad to help!
