The flow diagram below clearly shows how affiliate trading works and collect commissions.

1. A partner signs up to the broker’s affiliate program and gets a unique affiliate tracking link.
2. The affiliate promotes the broker through their own social media channels, such as Instagram / YouTube / Facebook / Twitter/ websites/ trading groups/signals and/or online training courses.
3. A potential client is redirected to the broker and signs up via the affiliate tracking link.
4. The trader begins trading through the recommended broker. Their activity is linked with the client’s account where the affiliate can track and optimize activity.
5. The broker pays out a commission to the affiliate in exchange for the converted traffic.
