Affiliate marketing is a type of performance based marketing where a business rewards one or more affiliate for each customer brought by the affiliates own marketing effort.

The one who refers people to the business is called the affiliate marketer. He is the one who makes money without having any goods to sell but just by serving as a middleman between the business and potential customers.

The amount paid to the affiliate varies from company to company as agreed in the affiliate terms. Some businesses pay upto 50% commission while some pay 3%  to 10%. As I said before it varies, so it depends on the marketers choice of affiliate network.
