Monetize.com offers publishers with services that help them make revenue and gain feedback from virtual content. Services are provided by embedding or tagging links in the content that the users are viewing, which, when accessed, will redirect such users to the Merchant’s website where goods and services can be bought.
If the customers order anything by being redirected to the Merchant’s website through such embedded links, Merchants are liable to pay the publishers a commission through Monetize.com. This commission payment shall not be paid by the users/customers, and the commission shall have no bearing on the price such users have to pay or any interaction on Merchant’s platform.
In addition, Monetize.com will serve as a tool assisting Merchants and Advertisers in a proper understanding and targeting of user behaviors, identifying and working closely with Publishers and third parties on content strategies.
