What is Forex Affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate marketing is the process of earning a commission for purchases made by promoting a product or a service offered by someone else. In the Forex context, it means that the affiliate marketer is promoting a link or a lead to an external Forex broker’s site or trading platform.
Commission types vary in the Forex industry, the most used being the CPA, or Cost By Acquisition, which is a commission paid after a user you referred is registering and funding his/her account. There’s also a CPL, or Cost Per Lead, commission type, where you get paid when a valid lead is sent to the broker, but in this article we will focus on the CPA method.
