Groupon Partner Network Debuts

Self-serve Affiliate Marketing Platform

Yesterday, Groupon announced the global debut of the Groupon Partner Network (GPN), a self-serve affiliate platform for bloggers and publishers to promote deals on their own sites.

For a limited time, participating bloggers will receive 12 percent commissions (normally 10 percent) for Groupon Local and 8 percent for both Groupon Getaways (normally 6 percent) and Groupon Goods (normally 5 percent).

The new platform is simple to use: bloggers sign in, grab a finished display ad, and place the promotion on their site. When users buy a deal from that ad, the GPN awards the commission to the blogger.
