How does Linklay work?
We have some pretty spectacular code which enables you to add click points and information to any pixel on an image. You decide where to place the click points, assign product information, then copy and paste a code snippet into your blog or website wherever HTML is accepted.
Can I put Shoppable Images on Instagram?
If we acquire Instagram we’ll make sure we make that an option. But for now, no. We are however working on plans to link Instagram accounts to Linklay accounts to help your Insta-followers shop from pictures you post on Instagram – but only by viewing your Insta photos on your website.
Where do I get affiliate links from?
From affiliate programs you belong to. A quick search online will reveal a tonne of affiliate programs you can join. While there are various methods of using affiliate programs, you will need to get a specific affiliate URL for the specific product page you are referring your readers to.
Do I need to use an affiliate link?
Nope! Using affiliate links is a great way for bloggers to monetise their blog – but if that’s not your thing (or you’re linking to your own products), then just use a regular URL directing to a product page. If you’re a merchant, a URL to your product page is all you need.
Does Linklay take a commission from any affiliate profit?
Heck no! That’s not how we roll. We charge a simple fee to make Linklay possible so you enjoy 100% of your earnings.
What if I don’t have an affiliate link for a product – can I use an ordinary link?
Yes! All you need is a URL which directs your reader to a place where they can buy the product – it doesn’t matter if the link you use has affiliate information embedded in it or not.
Can I change the text on the button for the popups?
Not at the moment – but we’re working on this to add it to the customisation features.
How do I add a Linklay to my website?
When you save your shoppable image we’ll give you a snippet of code to copy and paste into the text section of your blog post or web page. Paste it anywhere that accepts HTML code (so when you see a text area looking something like <p>Hello!</p> – you’re in the right place!).
