Product release—The upgraded attribution rule for HOT PRODUCT

TO encourage affiliates do more promotion on hot products and enjoy higher commission, we tier up the attribution model for hot products over normal products. The new rule will take effects from March 1st, 2019.

Definition: Hot products: Hot products are products that are set with a higher commission by the seller on AliExpress platform. Normally these products are hot selling or have great value and the seller hope to give them an extra push by setting a higher commission. The commission can goes up to 90%.

You can find and ONLY find the hot products in 3 ways:

API

Portals-Ad center -Event promotion section

Portals-Ad center-Hot product section

Portals-Ad center-Promoted product section-download the file and filter by the column”is hot product”

Normal products: All the other products which is not specified as hot products.

Last click attribution model: Assign credit for sales to the last touchpoints (click) in conversion paths within 3 days of cookie term window.

Transaction products: The product that is finally purchased by a shopper. It is not necessary the same products that is promoted by affiliates.

Rules before:

The last-click attribution rule applies for all the products, regardless of hot products or normal products.

New Rules:

About attribution:

We changed the attribution model for hot products according to how affiliates drive the sale from. If the transaction product is a hot product, there are 3 leveling of attribution:

The first priority: If affiliate drive the sale of Transaction products from its product detail page, that affiliate has the highest priority of attribution. The last-click attribution rule applies within the tier;

The second priority: If affiliate drive the sale of Transaction products from hot product event page, best.aliexpress.com or other kind of hot product links, that affiliate has the second priority of attribution. The last-click attribution rule applies within the tier;

The last tier: If affiliate drive the sale of Transaction products from non-hot product links, that affiliate has the lowest priority of attribution. The last-click attribution rule applies within the tier;

If the transaction product is a normal product, the last click attribution model applies regardless of what promotion link you are using to drive that sale.

About hot product commission:

Only when affiliate promote a hot product material (detail page or event page taken from portals) and the Transaction products is also a hot product, that affiliate will get hot product commission if the sale attributed to the affiliate.

Note:

Some affiliates are currently using hot product deeplink URL(example: https://s.click.aliexpress.com/deep_link.htm?af_short_key={sk}&dl_target_url={url}). However, these kind of URL will no longer yield high commission with the new rule.

Takeaways:

1. Promote hot products to enjoy attribution priority as well as high commission

2. Stop using the hot product deeplink function as it won`t yield high commission any more. Please take the hot products links on Portals.

Rules on Penalties for Buying AliExpress Brand Words by Participating Sites/ Media through SEM

According to Article 2.1 of the AliExpress Affiliate Program Service Agreement (https://portals.aliexpress.com/help/help_center.html-“Service Agreement”), Participating Sites/Media must obey Article 10(i) of the AliExpress Affiliate Program Advertising Rules and Policies (collectively with Article 2.1, the “Affiliate Program Rules”) which prohibits Participating Sites/Media from buying AliExpress brand words or any related brand words by way of Search Engine Marketing (SEM) campaigns or other means.

In respect to breaches due to the purchase of AliExpress or its related brand words by way of SEM, the AliExpress Antispam team has issued the relevant penalty rules to take effect from November 9, 2016. Details are as follows:

Upon confirmation by AliExpress that a Participating Site/Media has purchased AliExpress brand words through SEM (as determined in AliExpress’ sole opinion based on the records of AliExpress), if we discover a breach by a SID Participating Site/Media, then all the monthly revenue to be settled with the relevant SID Participating Site/Media in the month the breach was discovered shall not be paid; if we discover a breach by a PID Participating Site/Media, then all the monthly revenue to be settled with the relevant PID Participating Site/Media in the month the breach was discovered shall not be paid. AliExpress reserves the right to exercise its rights at its own discretion. The deduction of commission refers to the commission accrued on successfully completed transactions. As an illustration, if we discover an Antispam incident on May 1, 2016, then the commissions accrued on successful transactions completed in May will be deducted.

No appeals are allowed for Antispam cases.

If you have secondary affiliate partners, to avoid joint liability, it is recommended that you set up and manage multiple SIDs. At the same time, as our primary partner, you are responsible for supervising and reviewing your secondary affiliate partners. We recommend that you properly supervise and manage them and provide correct guidance.

These rules will take effect from November 9, 2016.
