When someone clicks on that content and jumps to our website we'll know they came from you. Then if they buy any HydraPouches, they'll get a 10% discount, and you'll make $2.00 for each HydraPouch they buy. It's all managed through Yahoo! and iDevAffiliate, and you can independently monitor your Affiliate traffic and sales anytime. We send payments monthly when your Affiliate earnings exceed $20.
