Platform Releases & Improvements
We’re always working on new features to streamline your affiliate marketing and make your Skimlinks experience even better.
Take a look at everything we’ve released recently (and keep an eye out for more new things coming your way soon!).
Enhanced Merchant Rates
We’ve updated how we display merchant rates to make it easier for Publishers to see the uplift in commission they earn by working with Skimlinks.
As well as this, we’ve added more details around what our commission rates apply to – it’s now clearer to see if a rate is for specific products, departments or the entire store, as well as the countries the rate is available in.

Two New Reports Available
We recently launched two new reports in the Publisher Hub to help Publishers measure the impact of Dynamic Link Optimization.
Not yet activated Dynamic Link Optimization? Enabling the feature helps Publishers keep earning revenue by automatically optimizing 404, out of stock and inactive merchant links.
Broken Links Report
This report shows the links that are broken across a Publisher’s website, and the number of clicks those links have generated.
Link Optimization Report
This report shows the revenue driven from links Skimlinks has automatically updated via Dynamic Link Optimization.
Please note, 404 optimization is available globally, but out of stock and inactive merchant optimization is available in the US only.
The new reports are in all accounts now – log-in to the Publisher Hub to view.
Trending Products API
The Trending Products Report is now available as an API! As with the report in the Publisher Hub, Publishers can easily see which products are resonating with consumers globally and locally in real-time.
You can access the Trending Products API documentation here.
