What is the Snapdeal Affiliate Hub?
The Snapdeal Affiliate Program is a referral program where you can earn referral fees by advertising products sold on Snapdeal and referring your users to us. You will earn a referral fee each time a user visits us through your Affiliate link and makes a purchase.
How does the program work?
Once you register yourself with our Affiliate Program, you can start promoting our products on your website or app. All you need to do is:
  1. Display Snapdeal products and offers on your website/app using text links, banners or any other promotional tools (such as Search bar, Static banners etc.). These will need to be hyperlinked to the respective landing page URL that you wish to promote.
  2. Get visitors to click on that particular product or offer banner which has your unique tracking link appended, and redirect them to Snapdeal.
  3. Whenever users make a purchase through your affiliate link, your account will get credited with a referral fee/commission.

    Do check out the “Know More” sections of these tools in order to know the exact steps of using them.
