Affiliate marketing

I launched my site and product today, and need to find affiliates to promote my URL and my product. I have a WordPress site, and can get whatever plug-in I need.

How do I go about making my site ready for affiliate marketing? What exactly is that?

Do I create a URL for them with a discount code embedded? And then pay them a commission on sales?

If so, what are the usual commissions?

Thanks.

sometimes its a plugin for the affiliate to use as well or an iframe they use on their website, they would normally register on your site , your approve them and give them a unique URL or code to use in the plugin or iframe or a code snippet (where they would put their members code)
The software on your site will track sales and where they come from,  allocating Sales to affiliates.
the commission is sometimes per month. then they are paid depending on the rules you have set up.

Commission - that's down to you it can range from anything from  5% to 25%
It  depends on what you pay for your items and what you sell your items for. The affiliate will take a cut of that mark up.

this plugin (not tried it myself)  looks good but also the website explains a lot:

Thanks.

Would an affiliate place a URL (my site generates) on their website? A banner ad I create? A combination of the two?

This suggests I need to create a handful of ads they can choose from.

Thanks.
