Hi everyone,

Let's say I have a site and I want to sell your products on my site for a 10% commission.

In your opinion as a merchant, what would be the best way to collect orders on MY site and pass the orders on to you so you can process the order, send the email conformation, etc?

Here are the only two things I can think of...

1. Have my own secure order form and somehow pass the data to your merchant system to process the order.

2. You give me a custom order form to add to my web site.

Thank you for any comments,

Who processes the payments? How do I know how timely the order has been received by you and sent on to me?

Probably a better way to manage this might be to somehow add the products to a cart, then at "checkout," pass the entire cart to my payment page with a variable for an affiliate id. This way "my" credit card processor manages the payment, and both you and I know the specifics of the order without anyone having to manually pass anything along.

Or when they are "adding to cart," it adds to a cart system on my site in the first place, then redirects any "keep shopping" back to your site.
