Two weeks ago we chatted with the founder of The Fancy, Joseph Einhorn, about what sets his social image sharing site apart from it’s cousins like Pinterest and Tumblr.
Today The Fancy announced that users will be able to earn a commission from items they fancy (2%), through a unique referral link. Like other affiliate programs, you can use this URL on your social media sites like Twitter and Facebook, as well as on your blog.
Since Einhorn told us that more than 50% of The Fancy’s content is fashion-related, this is great news for style bloggers. There’s one caveat though, which is actually sort of a big one.
If someone discovers an item through your link and makes a purchase, you get a percentage of that purchase as credit in your Fancy account. You then build up credit and use it towards making purchases within The Fancy.
