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.

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 MoneySuperMarket are an aggregator, the program can’t follow the traditional affiliate tracking as some purchases to do not complete on the MSM site. For some products, each ‘transaction’ which appears in the Awin UI is actually a click-out to insurance provider. Each click-out is validated on a CPA basis, once MSM has received evidence from partner providers that the click-outs resulted in a successful purchase. If they didn’t, the transactions (click-outs) in the Awin UI are declined. It’s a cost per click-out tracking implementation with a CPA payment method.
Car Insurance: Transactions track as click-outs to partner provider sites. Transactions are validated when the click-out leads to a successful sale; on a CPA basis
Home Insurance:Transactions track as click-outs to partner provider sites. Transactions are validated when the click-out leads to a successful sale; on a CPA basis
Pet Insurance: Transactions track as click-outs to partner provider sites. Transactions are validated when the click-out leads to a successful sale; on a CPA basis
Travel Insurance: Transaction tracks and is paid on a normal CPA basis
Life Insurance: Transaction tracks and is paid on a normal CPA basis
Please note that this means that the decline rate for the Car, Home and Pet insurance products can be as high as 50%-60%.

Further advertising compliance policies found within the ‘Terms’ section above
If an affiliate is found in breach of any of the policies stated this will result in immediate suspension pending further investigation. MoneySuperMarket reserves the right to decline commissions on transactions when any unauthorised activity is committed.
The ASA CAP (Committee of Advertising Practice) Code applies to affiliate marketing, as per the following:
The Code applies to:
•Advertisements and other marketing communications by or from companies, organisations or sole traders on their own websites, or in other non-paid-for space online under their control, that are directly connected with the supply or transfer of goods, services, opportunities and gifts, or which consist of direct solicitations of donations as part of their own fund-raising activities.
Affiliates should ensure that marketing is clear and that:
•Marketing communications must be obviously identifiable as such
•Marketing communications must not falsely claim or imply that the marketer is acting as a consumer or for purposes outside its trade, business, craft or profession; marketing communications must make clear their commercial intent, if that is not obvious from the context.
•Marketers and publishers must make clear that advertorials are marketing communications; for example, by heading them "advertisement feature".
It’s important to note that because affiliate marketing falls within the scope of the CAP code, that all the relevant rules will apply to the content, and therefore should not, amongst other things, mislead materially or cause serious or widespread offence.
