What are Sponsored Products?

Sponsored products diagram

Sponsored Products are cost-per-click (CPC) placements that promote individual product listings on your site. Your sellers pay you to gain access to these premium placements, allowing them to sell more of their products while enabling you additional income. It’s just like when you pay for search ads, social ads, or Amazon ads, but sellers pay you for premium placement of their product on your e-commerce site. Your Sellers, You, and your Customers all benefit, that why every single successful e-commerce site such as Amazon, Ebay, Walmart, and so on have Sponsored Products.

You Get Paid Both for the Sale, as well as the Sponsored Product Clicks

Every time a Customer clicks on a Sponsored Product, you get a payment from the Sponsoring Vendors and Sellers. This is in addition to any income you would have made from the sale anyway.

Sellers can increase sales of specific items in their inventory:

Sponsored Products can help sellers grow their sales by reaching customers who are browsing for products like theirs and directing them to their product detail page. Sellers can run campaigns to move specific inventory, or promote products that would otherwise sit idle. They will see an increased spend on their products, and hence increased revenue compared to organically placed traffic.

Customizable dashboards.

Each click on a Sponsored Product generates additional revenue for your business. This income can add up to a significant portion of profits for your business with virtually zero upfront investment. Some of the largest e-commerce platforms in the world such as Amazon and Ebay make the majority of their profits from Sponsored Products rather than fees charged on e-commerce sales.

Discovering new and relevant products:

Pure recommendation and personalization engines generally fall into a self-fulfilling trap of showing the same items over and over again. Sponsored Products allow high-quality products to be showcased, thus enhancing the experience of your customers. And since Jewel's Personalization and Sponsored Products backends are tightly integrated and offered as a single solution, customers get the best of both worlds!
