Cemmerce is a commerce enablement platform that helps publishers, bloggers and content creators generate new revenue streams from existing and future online content. Our unique technology provides a smart way to convert all product references into viable sales opportunities. In addition, we provide access to precise and real time price comparison data. With Cemmerce you can easily monetize your content and manage multiple sites. You won't need to connect with multiple affiliate programs and manage them. You won't need to search for specific retailer's product links to update your content. We do all the work for you so you can concentrate on doing what you love: creating content.
Any site that mentions products that are sellable. The more you gear your writing toward product reviews the better our platform will work for you.
Our primary tool (live commerce underline links) generate valuable contextual links that are layered on top of your content so we do not compete, or replace your ad serving platform. Our tools can be used in combination with popular advertising networks so you can generate a totally new revenue stream. In addition, our platform provides tools to utilize your content optimally at no cost and keeps your readers from straying outside your content world.
Our primary tool (live commerce underline links) doesn't interfere with the way content is presented; it will only underline the products mentioned in your content. The "buy now" button tool will have a minor visual effect, as you add a button to your text (however, keep in mind that you choose where to insert the button). The Banner tool will be displayed just like any other banner. You can choose where you want to place it. All 3 tools open the "Cemmerce bubble", which is presented as an additional layer on top of the text, upon mouse hover. The tools can be used separately or together.
An integral part of the Cemmerce platform, is the very rich management and control tools we provide. Through them, you can track and measure results at the site level, the page level, and even the link level. We give you tools that allow you to track your revenue, clicks, traffic, user interactions, sales, payment status and more, by viewing detailed reports and utilizing a very user friendly dashboard.
Cemmerce doesn't influence your site’s SEO or Google PageRank. We generate valuable and "user friendly" contextual links that benefit your readers.
To ensure that our solution won't have any undesirable influence on SEO or Google we use 'no-follow' for all your affiliate links and banners

The commission percentage depends on three factors:
1. The product
2. The volume
3. The retailer
While the average commission is around 4%, because of the volume Cemmerce generates we usually get a higher commission. Some products will get the content creator 4%, while others, (cosmetics for example) may pay content creators as much as 20%.
Some retailers are a lot more generous than others, so commission for the same product will vary based on that as well.
Cemmerce keeps 25% of the commission, and passes the other 75% on to the content creator. Our optimization algorithms are NOT optimized to highest commission payout, but to highest conversion. So retailers that convert better (probably due to better customer service, better return policy, etc.) will be ranked higher and get more exposure,. Why? Because even though they might pay a lower commission, more deals will close, and a larger dollar amount will be generated.

Each transaction that was approved by the retailer is marked as a pending sale. Once we receive the commission from the retailer the transaction status will be changed to “approved”. You’ll be paid once a month for all approved transactions provided that the commission has reached a balance of $35 (the minimum payment amount).
Usually retailers pay commission for a set amount of clicks (i.e.,x $ per 100 clicks). We gather all the clicks from all publishers and once we get paid we pay you your relative share from the total traffic.
Revenue potential depends on many factors including but not limited to; your website's popularity and traffic, your content type, number of sellable product references, your reader's profile, conversion rate, etc. Sites that have high volumes of mentioning products can generate more revenues.
