Affiliate advertising, also known as affiliate program advertising, is a form of advertising by which an affiliate site (i.e., a site carrying the advertising material of an advertiser) that refers customers to the advertiser’s site is paid compensation when the advertiser’s desired outcome (purchase, request for materials, membership registration, etc.) is achieved.

As the compensation is paid when the advertiser’s desired outcome for the advertisement is achieved, the method is highly efficient in terms of cost and also gives the affiliate site the potential to earn money by making use of media space. Accordingly, this type of advertising has become popular as an efficient method for advertising online.
