Payouts to affiliates or publishers can be made by the networks on behalf of the merchant, by the network, consolidated across all merchants where the publisher has a relationship with and earned commissions or directly by the merchant itself.

Per capire realmente come funziona il sistema di affiliazione, guardiamo la cosa dal punto di vista non da addetti, ma da utenti. Mettiamo il caso che navighiamo normalmente su un sito qualunque, ma più o meno di nostro interesse da consumatore. Mentre scorriamo l’occhio tra notizie ed articoli, ci imbattiamo in inserzioni pubblicitarie. Tali inserzioni possono catturare o meno la nostra attenzione. Se riescono a catturarla, potenzialmente guadagnano il nostro click e finiamo sul sito del merchant o inserzionista. Se decidiamo inoltre di comprare un oggetto sullo stesso sito, si crea un circolo virtuoso che parte dal nostro primo click e quindi dal nostro primo ingresso, per finire ad una vendita. Cosa è successo dunque? Abbiamo preso parte ad un vero e proprio ciclo di transazione commerciale.

In November 1994, CDNow launched its BuyWeb program. CDNow had the idea that music-oriented websites could review or list albums on their pages that their visitors might be interested in purchasing. These websites could also offer a link that would take visitors directly to CDNow to purchase the albums. The idea for remote purchasing originally arose from conversations with music label Geffen Records in the fall of 1994. The management at Geffen wanted to sell its artists' CD's directly from its website but did not want to implement this capability itself. Geffen asked CDNow if it could design a program where CDNow would handle the order fulfillment. Geffen realized that CDNow could link directly from the artist on its website to Geffen's website, bypassing the CDNow home page and going directly to an artist's music page.[14]
