Also, you could use textlinks to any product page in Tradus website. You can generate a standard textlink for the dashboard and then replace the destination url to any product url.

    Compare Tradus affiliate program with Flipkart affiliate

    Flipkart is a well established and most popular eCommerce website in India and most of us depend on them for our online purchases. They do have a lot of specials and deals going on and offer the lowest rates for most of the products. This also means, you will have a very high conversion rate from their affiliate programs. But the commission offered by Flipkart is very low compared to other similar programs. For example, they offer 1% commission for mobile phones and accessories but Tradus offers 5% commission for the same. Flipkart offers 5% commission for Books but Tradus offers 10% commission.

    From the commission perspective, Tradus is far better than Flipkart affiliate program, however, since Flipkart is a more popular online shop, you may have higher conversion rates from their programs.
