What Is ACCESSTRADE?
ACCESSTRADE is one of the leading affiliate marketing platforms in Malaysia under Interspace. They have over 20 years of experience in affiliate marketing across Japan and Southeast Asia.
ACCESSTRADE has been officially launched in Malaysia in 2018. The current CEO of both Malaysia and Singapore is Hayato Nakata.
What Is Affiliate Marketing?
In case you don’t know how affiliate marketing works:
Affiliate marketing is a process of earning commission by promoting products/events/ services from other companies.
You get the commission only if a customer makes a purchase, clicks a particular link, or registers (depending on what the company requires).
If there is a product that I personally like, I can promote it to my friends, family or followers. By signing up for the applicable affiliate program (if any).
You can usually find affiliate programs in the company’s official website (at the bottom of the homepage).
After signing up for the respective affiliate program, you will get access to the affiliate dashboard.
Where you will be able to generate an affiliate link for tracking purpose. That’s how the company can trace a sale back to your website!
Then you can start using the affiliate link in your website, Youtube, or other social media platforms to promote the product/ service.
Any user who clicks on your affiliate link will be tracked. And when they make a successful purchase (with no refund or cancellation after a set period of days), you will get a commission from the sale.
It’s that simple!
PS: Some product companies don’t have their own affiliate program (like Shopee). That’s where an affiliate platform like ACCESSTRADE fits in. They act as a middle man between you and the product company. They manage, track and report to both parties.
Can You Really Make Money Using ACCESSTRADE?
The short answer is YES. We joined ACCESSTRADE on Oct 2020. And we are happy with the user interface, reports, follow up service, and earnings (the amount depends on our website traffic).
Sometimes, the dashboard takes a while to load but that could be our internet speed.
ACCESSTRADE Merchant and brands
ACCESSTRADE works with notable brands like Lazada, Shopee, Zalora, Lenovo, Klook, and many more.
PS: In fact, it was their Shopee campaign that first attracted us to join ACCESSTRADE!
