Learn More About Our CPA Program

ShopStyle Collective is now on a Cost Per Acquisition (CPA) model.

What exactly is CPA?

CPA is a commission-based program for influencers in our community. Through the platform, influencers will earn a percentage of the sales they drive.

Why the change from PPC?

We know how important transparency is to our community. Evolving our program to CPA with our current tools and data provides transparency for influencers to build their brand and business.

How do influencers join?

You can apply to join ShopStyle Collective. CPA is designed to create an inclusive, diverse and active community. Reviewing applications helps us build an authentic influencer community that’s consistently creating original and engaging content, and represents a broad range of styles, taste and interests.

What does compensation look like on CPA?

Influencers can generate commission on any order that’s placed on a retailer’s site after someone clicks on a ShopStyle Collective link. Commissions accrue as retailers confirm that the sales are closed. This excludes any items that are returned by shoppers. The confirmation window typically takes anywhere from 60–90 days.

Compensation is based on a percent of the total checkout price, before shipping and tax, including items purchased within the retailer’s cookie window. Commission rates will vary by retailer, and you’ll be able to browse advertiser rates in your Collective account.

The great news is influencers are compensated for every item purchased after clicking a ShopStyle Collective link. For example, you may feature only one item on your blog; but, if a shopper splurges on a whole outfit after clicking through, you receive commission on everything purchased. You can view which sales are pending and closed on your ShopStyle Collective dashboard.

Why is CPA good for my business?

CPA should help you better understand what your readers purchase and which retailers are highest converting. You’ll be able to review purchase data to improve your conversions and earnings over time. We want to empower you to make the best decisions about what to promote, and help you increase your earning potential over time.
