ICYMI, Buzzfeed is applying its expertise in story-telling and scale to selling products. Very smart and this integration/partnership with Shopify is an easy "sell" to people eager to get their products in front of more people. Does Buzzfeed capture an affiliate fee when referring customers, @yo?

@rrhoover BuzzFeed takes a small affiliate fee that a store owners sets when connecting to the BuzzFeed Sales Channel

@yo what is the fee based on? A completed sale, click through, other...?
Ben Kaufman@ben_kaufman
@aainslie @yo you can set your commission as low as 0% (aka nada)-- so fee is optional. Commission is based on successful conversion only!

@ben_kaufman smart strategy for both sides 👍

Hi everyone - Excited for the launch of this channel! It's the first opportunity for merchants to work directly with our content creators without taking on the costs of an affiliate network or PR firm. Products are easily discovered by our writers and all tracking, reporting and payouts are managed within the Shopify platform.

@nilla_ali Do we have to register our store anywhere? How does it work for existing shopify users?
