Get to know Curate for PopShops


Curate is a product discovery tool (or widget) that enables you to easily find products from all of your advertisers across the top affiliate networks. You can organize and save your product selections into galleries and display these galleries as shoppable showcases alongside your content to better engage your visitors and monetize your traffic.

Curate is currently available only in English, and only in the US, UK, CA, and AU networks.


Feature Highlights

With Curate for PopShops, you have access to all of your advertisers' products ingested from the top affiliate networks through one interface.

There are two aspects to the Curate tool: Galleries and Showcases.

• A gallery is a collection of products you put together. Any products you save will go into a new gallery or into an existing gallery you specify.

• A showcase is the version of your gallery that is publishable. A showcase will use a specific gallery's products. You will specify which gallery you want to design and the products in the showcase will be from that gallery.

Searching for products across all your approved advertisers is easier than ever. The products available are determined by the merchants selected in your default catalog. The products themselves have been set up with all the necessary commissionable links for each advertiser, across all participating networks so when each link is clicked from your site, you are credited for the sale.


Additional highlights include:

Selecting Products: Curate has the more powerful product search tool. You can search by Keyword, Brand, Advertiser, Category, Price, and Discount Amount.

Customizations: You can customize, in detail, the style of your showcase to better match your website. Showcases will not be confined to a certain ad unit size.
