Affiliate Promo Codes
Last updated: January 27, 2023
What is an Affiliate Promo Code?
A simple code that, once entered on your website, will tag the appropriate affiliate in your Dashboard.
An affiliate can use a simple code tied to them to make bookings on behalf of a guest or they can give out their affiliate code and receive credit for booking(s) when the code is used on your website.
A hotel could give out a coupon saying “Use code VIST and receive $5 off when you book the Sunset Boat Tour“. The tour operators simple URL would be listed making it easy for the guest to make a booking.
Once the code ‘VIST’ is entered on your website, it can be used to take off a discount or solely for tracking purposes.
What does a promo code look like?
In your Dashboard, the booking will appear as an online booking; however, the affiliate name will be tagged.
How does payment work?
Since an affiliate promo code will be entered on your website, any payment processed will flow directly to you.
If you will be paying your affiliate a commission, the commission will appear on the booking right under the Booking Notes section. In this example, the guest received a $5 discount by using the affiliate code and $10 is owed to the affiliate for referring a guest to book using their code.
How do I know if this is a good fit for my affiliate?
An affiliate promo code is most beneficial for affiliates who do not have a website or who want to resell your tours without having to make bookings for their guests. If the guest is making the booking, it will save time for all parties involved, and you will be able to receive the full payment at the time of booking, rather than waiting to be paid by the affiliate!
