Google Affiliate Network Closure: What You Need to Do

Just a reminder: Earlier this spring, Google announced that they will be shutting down the Google Affiliate Network (GAN) and all affiliate relationships will be severed at the end of this month (July 31, 2013).

If you are working with GAN and you have not done so already, you need to do the following:

Select a new Affiliate Network to use. If you are on the ShopVisible platform, we currently integrate with LinkSharePepperJam and Commission Junction for product feeds. However, there are dozens of other networks to choose from as well – simply research and make the best selection for you.

Reach out to your top affiliates right away and inform them of the new platform that they can find you on. There may be some drop off in affiliates, but this can be minimized by offering a special incentive such as a commission boost for the first few months.
