Publisher pack

As you probably already know, our mission is helping households to save money by designing the channels, communications and content to provide transparent and informative products that allow our customers and users to make informed choices.

With this in mind, you'll be able to find our publisher pack in the 'documents' section of this platform, next to the profile overview. This package contains all the information you need about the products that we promote through the affiliate channel; the commission structure that we have in place by publisher type and product. You will also find further information about the tracking, the pre-approved copy and creatives that you're allowed to promote the brand on our behalf and other T&C's.

 

Tracking and deep-linking requirements  IMPORTANT!!!!!!

As a comparison site, we have different conversion points across a range of products on our website. Therefore, our tracking requirements are different to most advertisers on the network. This allows us to track back and match the transactions/ conversions back to a specific user and validate the payment of the commission and, track performance by affiliate separately.

You must disregard the links generated on the ‘Link Builder tool’ on Awin and use the links provided by Moneysupermarket.

We work with two different types of tracking links:

1.Generic links: We have a set of generic links for each product channel (Car insurance, Home insurance, Energy, etc.) listed below and our publisher pack. If your website is not an incentive-based website (cashback, voucher site, etc.), then you need to use these links. (Please  remember to replace !!!id!!! with your publisher ID) 

2.Bespoke links:  We create bespoke links for incentive-based affiliates. We generate bespoke source codes internally which are then appended to a tracking link. This must be generated from our side so that we can split affiliate traffic within our internal data and isolate publishers for analysis and investigative purposes. Also, with incentive-based affiliates, we must ensure that the publisher is able to pass us a unique ID. Our cashback partners append it in the clickthrough URL. We use click_reference to join a landing page visit to a confirmed sale in the sale data that we receive from our providers. This ID MUST BE UNIQUE TO THE CUSTOMER SESSION and is critical to pursuing a CPA relationship, without it non-incentive based models must be followed.

If you are an incentive-based affiliate (cashback site, voucher site, loyalty site, etc.), please don’t start promoting Moneysupermarket until we provided you with a bespoke link. Please check the instructions to get a bespoke link on the publisher pack saved in the 'documents' section of this platform.

If you are not an incentive-based affiliate (content site, blogger, etc.), please DO USE the following links for each product channel to promote the brand (Please replace !!!id!!! with your publisher ID):

We will be unable to validate clicks to partners and pay commission on transactions that are not tracked appropriately. You must use the links provided and replace !!!id!!! with your publisher ID.

 

Sales tracked with default rate: If there is a problem with the tracking pixel firing on the last stage of the journey, it is possible that the transaction is not matched to any commission group. If any of your transactions fall on the default rate, please contact the MSM team for further investigation and map the commission parameter to the correct group.
