Ensuring a high number of visitors to your website can be tricky, and then there’s the challenge of turning those views into profit. In this article, we share everything you need to know about becoming a partner with Catawiki, and how doing so can help you monetise your web traffic.
What is Catawiki?
Catawiki is one of the fastest growing online auction platforms in the world, hosting over 14 million international visitors each month. With limited edition art and rare collectables, Catawiki makes unique items accessible to people all over the world.
What makes Catawiki different from other online marketplaces, is that each auction is curated by an expert in their field. The team of experts assess every object offered up by the sellers and determine its suitability for auction. This keeps the quality of the auction high and the selection varied.
What is the Catawiki Partner Network?
By using the Catawiki Partner Network, website owners can earn money by promoting Catawiki’s adverts and content. This works best with websites that have something in common with Catawiki. Which is why only sites related to Catawiki’s auction categories, with at least a minimum level of development; an established structure and a strong focus and sites that offer valuable and quality content to their visitors are suitable as a partner.
How does it work?
You can sign up here. Once your application has been submitted, the Catawiki team will check your site to see if you are suitable as a partner. If you are approved, you’ll get a unique account from where you’ll have access to a wide range of creatives, tracking tools and real-time data about your performance.
With our provided promotional materials on your site, you can refer users to Catawiki and for every user that becomes an active user or makes a purchase, you will earn a commission. All your earned commissions will be displayed on your dashboard and your payments will be transferred every month.
What is the commissions model?
There are two different ways to earn money at the Catawiki Partner Network: lead rewards and commission rewards. Lead rewards mean that a fixed amount is rewarded for every new user who places a bid (bidder) or submits their first lot (lot submitter) within the first 30 days after the click.
A commission reward is a percentage of the buyer auction fee or seller commission fee that will be rewarded when a new or existing user has either won or sold something on Catawiki within 60 days of the click. For new users, this is 80%, for existing users 40%.
What about promotional material?
By joining the network, you will gain access to banners, text links, content material, emails and product data feeds that are all in line with our style guides, and customised content available in English, French, German, Dutch, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese. We’ll offer tools for tracking the content and links, a granular insight dashboard to deep dive on your performance, real-time data and fast payment services.
