A company or website that directs customers to other businesses or websites, and receives compensation for the referral. The compensation may be a percentage of what the customer purchases, or a bonus when a user signs up. For example, Computer Hope's products page is an affiliate program of Amazon. When someone follows any of the links on this page or goes to the Amazon web page from this page and buys something, Computer Hope receives a percentage of the sale.
