Making a Basic Affiliate
The EPage affiliate
program provides a classified ad service for your Web site. With just a few
simple steps and a link placed on your Web site, your visitors can use a full-featured,
and fully populated classified ad service. Of course, you must first have a
Web site that you can edit. You must be able to place a link on your Web site
to the affiliate site, or paste the HTML code we provide into your Web site.
Without this link, nobody will use your affiliate site.

of categories for your affiliate site by clicking on the Add/Remove Shared
Categories button. You can also customize some items like fonts and colors
from the manager, and there is information on how to submit a banner image

your Web site. This service is for your Web site visitors. They are the
only ones who will use the service. If you do not provide a link to the
affiliate site on your Web site, then nobody will use the affiliate site
you created. You should paste the HTML code we provide on your Web site.
