Revenue Sharing Model

In its free version, Affiliate Bridge uses a “Revenue Sharing Algorithm” for splitting affiliate income between the user (the Website Owner) and the Affiliate Bridge plugin maker.
Based on the system clock, 85% of calls to the API will be made with The Website Owner’s API Key.
The rest of the calls (15%), will be using a hard codded “Affiliate Bridge plugin maker”‘s API key.
The Revenue Sharing Algorithm is in charge of the splitting calls STATISTICALLY to generate about 85% of Affiliate Program income to the Website Owner, the rest (about 15%) will go to the Plugin Owner.
If the Website Owner does not change the default plugin settings, Affiliate Bridge will use the plugin maker api key mentioned above 100% of the time.
Using this Revenue Sharing Model allows us to provide this product free of charge, on The Website Owner’s end, while still providing a professional and reliable product.. oh, and also coffee to go with that :).
