Yoox is a part of the Yoox Net-a-Porter group, and operates as an online fashion retail store. The company was created, in its current form, in 2005, when the partnership between the Yoox group and the Net-A-Porter group was dissolved. Originally, Yoox was founded in the year 2000, by Costas Constantinou, and has grown steadily to encompass a network of over 180 locations around the world, with a revenue of around €1.82 billion in 2016.
The main offerings of Yoox are fashion items such as clothing, shoes and accessories from top brands, for men, women and kids. In addition, Yoox also offers fancy artwork from both established artists and designers, and newer, less popular artists.
Yoox has an affiliate partner program that allows partners to earn a commission when they drive customers to Yoox.com and those customers eventually make a purchase. Hefty commissions and uncapped earnings are the highlights of the Yoox affiliate program.
The first thing you need to know is that it is mandatory for aspiring affiliates to have a good website or blog; this is one of the main requirements for the approval of your application. The affiliate program is run through multiple websites, so you will need to start by opening an account with one of them. Once you’ve done this, the next step is to apply to one of Yoox’s affiliate partner schemes and wait for approval. Once you obtain approval, you can get started earning commission income by putting up links or banners and using other marketing tools on your website.
Yoox is a globally recognized and respected brand, with over €1.8 billion in revenue for 2016 alone. There is massive market share for the Yoox brand, which affiliate partners can easily take advantage of. You won’t need to expend any effort or resources building up the Yoox brand, and you can channel your time and resources into creating the right content marketing strategy instead.
Additional benefits of becoming a Yoox affiliate include:
Competitive commission on monthly sales – Yoox will not cap your earnings like some other companies do. You can continue to earn with unlimited potential, so long as your referrals make a purchase. The average commission paid out by the company is 6%.
No cost – right from the start, you will be provided with everything you need to get started, all at zero cost.
High conversion rate – Due to the strength of the Yoox brand, and its very wide selection of trendy items, customers tend to have very high conversion rates, which means higher commissions for the affiliate partner.
Affiliates only earn an income on purchases made by US customers so this is the target segment you should focus on in general. You can also choose to focus on any of the individual niches that exist within this broad market. For example, you may choose to target your campaigns towards men, women or kids, or you may decide to focus on individual product lines such as artwork.
