Searching for an affiliate software solution that I'm told doesn't exist. An embeddable cart/Iframe

by Michaele 4 replies
Hey warriors,

As the title of this post suggests, I'm searching for a solution that is so simple, I honestly can't believe the affiliate market is not saturated with requests for this software yet.

In a nutshell: I'm looking for an affiliate software/program that allows affiliates to embed a shopping cart on their site without redirecting to the vendors site.

The reasons for not wanting to direct traffic to a vendors site should be obvious, in case they aren't, here are mine:
Your followers/subscribers have never heard of the vendor
You introduced them to the vendors brand, yet they trust you and not the vendor
Redirecting traffic to a shopping cart you have no control over = no room for split testing or conversion optimisation.

I know the embeddable cart tech already exists as ClickBank offers it. Yet they only cover digital products, or their DVD (physical version).

I would love to know which affiliate software companies are offering an embeddable shopping cart for physical products.

Thanks for your wisdom and input in advance!

Cheers,

Michaelé

    The reason it does not exist is because the vendor is the product seller, not you. Therefore they have requirements to meet regarding their merchant account. Anything a affiliate does that does not meet those requirements could put the vendors ability to collect payments in jeopardy.

    Clickbank does not have what you are talking about. Basically clickbank is selling the product. Affiliates send visitors to the vendor sales page, then if the customer decides to buy and clicks the buy button they are then directed to the clickbank purchase page.

    I do not think any vendor would or should allow affiliates to control the purchase page.

      Thanks so much for the clarity on Clickbank.

      What I'm looking for does already exist. Framestr.com had embeddable iframes for affiliates, however the founders have since disappeared: Framestr | Interactive Display Ads

      Here's an example of how their embeddable cart worked: A Social Commerce Platform

      I also found others had the same question here: https://www.quora.com/Is-there-a-way...eaving-my-site

      Some MLM companies are also using Iframe shopping carts that allow the transaction to happen on the distributors site. So the technology does exist and it is doable.

      Cheers,

        I understand that the technology is out there, but what you are missing is that these technologies come from the vendor side and not the affiliate side of the transaction. If, as a vendor, you want to provide this for your affiliates then there is no problem. But, like I said, as an affiliate you can not just hijack the vendors sales process.

          I seemed to have missed a notification that you had replied.

          Framestr.com provides the technology so that it doesn't need to come from the vendors side.

          Since they no longer seem to be in the affiliate business, it sounds like I'm best off finding software that communicates with a vendors drop shipper.

          Cheers,
