What is the affiliate network Shopify App?

Our Shopify app allows brands to participate in our affiliate network program. The purpose of the app is to track sales generated through our network of journalists, bloggers and influencers. When the application registers an affiliate sale the details are posted back to Press Loft so that we can allocate the commission.

Who is the app for?

The app is for brands who already have a Press Loft account, use Shopify for their web store, and who wish to participate in the Press Loft affiliate program.
