In the past couple of weeks Apple has made huge strides in supporting pre-orders. What does this mean for affiliate program users? In addition to making pre-order content available in the affiliate tools, pre-order track or album purchases will now result in a commission – even if it’s more than three days until “Street Date.”
Supporting pre-orders has always been important to us (and required some crazy hackery in the past!). We believe artists and labels should be able to leverage the affiliate program for all of their iTunes store offerings. We’re excited about this improvement and the ability to now offer complete support by extending the benefits of our service to include global pre-order links!
