ShareaSale Plugin

Automatically lists ShareaSale offers for affiliated stores and removes these when they expire.
Using this plugin you reduce the work for stores affiliated with ShareaSale to minutes/day and you save money! ( Read to see how )

You need to add store to the site prior to using this plugin.

The idea behind was to answer the question:
How can I update my site with minimum effort?
So we searched and found a solution. With ShareaSale Plugin all you have to do is:
1. go to your ShareaSale account,
2. download the latest offers
3. upload them to your site.

Still after answering this question we found that there was another related question to this one:
Now that I have the latest offers on my site how do I delete them after expiring?
Now this is a hard question considering the fact that you may have more than 10.000 deals on the website at one time ( we reached more than 30.000 ).

What is the necessary time to delete such a big amount of offers?
We have no idea! But we are sure that is a long way for someone to do!
What did we do for this problem?

We minimized the time at 0 seconds for someone who uses this plugin. So if you use the ShareaSale plugin you’ll have:
– Updates of the latest deals;
– Automatic remove when the deal expires.
This operation requires only minutes from your time / day!

Using store database

Now you have your script installed and lots of stores on the site ( 3500+ )

What is next?
The stores already work but you will have to place your affiliate link in order to receive commissions. Unfortunately this is a manual process as all your affiliate links are custom made for you by the affiliate network. ( Read how tot change the links. )
The good news here is that any offer received from your affiliate network has good links in it ( with your affiliate id ). That means that offers can be placed immediately on the site with the help of the automatic process.
