What is Pongoshare?
Pongoshare is a professional affiliate site that offers a wide variety of marketing campaigns to affiliates, who will receive commissions or rewards for completing the campaigns as required. It collects high commission brands and merchants with commissions of up to 30% or sometimes more. All in all, Pongoshare is a platform that is widely considered an essential tool for any brand or influencer looking to “make it” in the retail sector.
If you’re on Instagram, you’re familiar with the swipe-up feature available to accounts with more than 10k followers. With the Pongoshare website, you have all of your saved product links at your fingertips. It makes it so incredibly easy to drop that link into images on your stories and monetize your swipe-ups.
For project reveals, save the stories to your highlights with the sources linked in the swipe-ups. They will generate interest, and hopefully commission, as long as they’re up! It’s also a nice taste of your portfolio for followers without even having to click over to your website.
If you don’t have swipe-ups yet, link that Pongoshare link in your bio so that they can shop all the linked products in one spot!
We know as a lifestyle influencer, you are getting comments constantly asking, “Where’s that rug from?” and “How can I get those pillows?” We encourage you to not reply with a vague answer like, “It’s from Crate + Barrel!” or replying with a product link, which isn’t clickable in Instagram comments. The best option is to reply telling them you will send the source via DM. Then, you can send them your affiliate link. It’s a convenient click for them and a commission for you! Here’s a template for the exact DM we recommend sending:
“Here is the link to that (insert product name here) you asked for! If you end up wanting to purchase it, I’d so appreciate it if you could shop using this link directly. It earns me a small commission + costs you nothing extra!”
We have found that most people are more than happy to use the affiliate link!

Great Questions I Got From the DM
How do I introduce affiliate links to my followers without feeling spammy? Remember, your followers are there because they admire your style. By providing them the links to get the look, you’re adding value to your content. Start small–begin by providing links to portfolio project sources only.
Is Pongoshare a PPC? When I started adding fashion and lifestyle to my vlog channel on YouTube I came across Shopstyle is an influencer and blogger affiliate network which allows the monetize of original content from top retailers.
You as the blogger gets paid every time one of your visitors clicks your generated ads, widgets, layouts, images, captions, or links on your site to the retailers’ site via Pongoshare. The rate you get paid per click depends on the number of clicks and your rapid click rate. Since Shopstyle has moved from a PPC to a CPA; however, Pongoshare is a PPC affiliate program that like ShopStyle will pay a flat fee, for every unique visitor (typically tracked via IP address) send to that retailer. This simply means that the visitor doesn’t have to buy anything from the retailer just click the link and visit the retailer’s website in order for you to get paid.
How to convert links into my own? Link forwarding plugin will make it easier for you to choose your favorite products, Pongoshare has developed a link forwarding plugin based on Chrome. After you install the plugin, when you browse most of the products of Amazon or Aliexpress, you can get your own link at any time. Or you can find [Tools]-[Transfer Link] in the Pongosahre navigation bar, paste one URL per time, then click the button, and you will get your own promotional link.
