Project Description

Haul Ecommerce Link Builder

The goal of this simple website/tool is to provide a YouTube Publisher or 'Hauler' a redirected affiliate link for inclusion in their YouTube video. The viewer of the video will see a button in the video that allows them to purchase the product being featured by the publisher. YouTube only allows one top level domain (i.e. link outside of YouTube) per channel. Publishers cannot, for example, include link to Amazon in one video and another link to Walmart in another. So we intend to allow the Publisher to visit our website, enter a link to the product they are talking about in their video into a field. Our website will ten use the Skimlinks LINK API Syntax to create an affiliate link AND a redirect from our website - [url removed, login to view] The publisher can then embed this Haul Branded link in the video allowing users to BUY the product they are watching.

We intend to share the affiliate revenue with the Publisher/Hauler. So we will need to use the feature within the Skimlinks API Syntax to identify the identity of the user so that we can get data from Skimlinks and pay the appropriate amount to the Hauler. Our intent is to collect revenue from Skimlinks and then give the Hauler her cut 30 days following collection of the funds via PayPal (and PayPal only).
