The Skimlinks Editor tool is a browser extension aimed at editors and bloggers to help create monetizable content on the fly. It also allows you to easily shorten and share affiliate links directly from your browser, and where possible, suggests alternative purchasing options for the products you’re writing about.
The Editor browser extension empowers you to optimize how you monetize your content by providing you with the information and tools you need at the point of content creation. It alerts you when you visit the website of a merchant in the Skimlinks network and tells you how much they pay for referrals.
Discover how much commission merchants pay for referrals
Skimlinks Editor appears on your browser as an icon that animates whenever you visit the website of a merchant in our network. Clicking on the icon will bring up information about how much that retailer pays for referrals and whether they are a Preferred Partner – merchants who pay Skimlinks publishers above average commission rates.
Shorten and share affiliate URLs while you browse
Skimlinks Editor lets you copy and share affiliate URLs directly from your browser. If you copy the full URL to your Skimlinks enabled site, our technology will automatically affiliate it.
You can also shorten links to post them on social media, email, and any other non-Skimlinks enabled site. The shortening process automatically affiliates the link.
Alternative product pricing
Where possible, SkimLinks Editor provides up-to-date alternative pricing information about products when you visit merchant product pages. Alternative pricing allows you to offer your readers the best price available across our merchant network for the products you’re writing about.
