Referred - 3rd party, question.
Posted: Friday, October 04, 2019 4:33:38 PM
Hi,

Could someone explain what 3rd party under referred means?
I've been meaning to ask this for a while. I've looked up help, but don't really understand it.
It's probably covered on this forum somewhere. Grin

Thanks, Carol

It means two things:

#1 - Someone is promoting you directly with your product links posted on outside sites and earned a referral when a product they linked to sold.

#2 - Someone is promoting with links outside of Zazzle and someone clicked a link but bought your product instead of, or along with, the linked product.

Therefore 3RD Party could be Direct or Indirect and promoters aren't obligated to tell anyone they are being promoted.

Every time somebody who signed up as an affiliate shares your stuff, drops a link back to your product/design with an RF-ID. When a customer follows back such a link zazzle drops a cookie into the local drive of this customer and if this customer keeps the cookie, it is not overwritten and the order happens within a certain period of time, this affiliate gets a commission and in your stats this appears as third party.

Your royalty reflects the deduction that comes with a 3rd party sale. You and zazzle pay the affiliate for his effort to bring in the customer.

Thanks, guys.

I get a lot of 3rd party sales, thought it might be something like that. I haven't promoted myself anywhere yet, not even on facebook.
So i'm thankful to whoever I'm getting 3rd party sale from.

If you got a sale from a link you posted yourself, that would show up as SELF.
NONE shows up when a customer came into Zazzle on their own or doesn't have cookies enabled. Cookies are needed for the referrals to work.

Oh... Sometimes 3rd Party is Zazzle via email promotions or such.
