If you are looking for a simple, fuss-free way to add affiliate links to your website or blog then Skimlinks is for you. Note that you cannot use Skimlinks on social media accounts. Here is my Skimlinks tutorial.

When you register at Skimlinks you get instant access to over 20,000 affiliate programs without the hassle of having to sign up for individual programs. This means that you aren't waiting around for approval from merchants and you don't need to go to the hassle of creating affiliate links. It really is a great place to start if time is against you. Skimlinks will automatically turn any existing links into affiliate links where they have an advertiser on board.

I am no longer using Skimlinks and using Affiliate Window's Convert-a-link tool instead, but here you can see a screenshot of your dashboard earnings. You can then delve deeper and run reports to find what is working for you and what isn't.

Skimlinks payment threshold and getting paid

Skimlinks have one of the lowest payment thresholds set at just £7, however it is also one of the slowest payers. Payments are made every month once commission has been cleared, which can take anything fro 60 – 90 days to clear. Based on my experience I would expect to get paid 3 months after the sale was made. You can choose to receive your payments via Paypal or BACS.
