The contact information usually listed in their campaign/ program page.

For MERCHANTS, the requirements are as follows:

1. Have product feed.
2. Registered in any Affiliates Networks.
3. Sign up as a merchant at DFF

Have product feed
You have to have your product feed in order to use our service and to get your products listed at DFF. DFF only gathers data feed files from hundreds of Online Stores (merchants), we categorize and process the data together to create a usable and searchable database. We do not create merchant's product feed.

Join in any Affiliate Networks
Each merchant has to be in any affiliate networks or have their own in-house affiliate network (eg. Amazon,, Shopzilla). The reason is because DFF does not issue payment and do not track all sale/ lead, so all the tracking and payment are monitored and issued by the affiliate network.

Sign up as a Merchant at DFF
There is no set up fee for any merchants that want to participate at However we reserve the right to use the Shared Commission Click-through when displaying any merchant who does not pay DFF directly for this service. This method is called the Shared Commission Plan.

If you do not want your product links or click-through being replaced using the Shared Commission plan you can compensate a small monthly service fee. The amount of monthly service fee depends on the number of products contained inside the merchant's data feed file. Using this plan would promote larger affiliate recruitment and allow your affiliates to earn more money. This method is called the Sponsored Merchant Plan.
