Affiliate marketing programs are a great way to get income for your website, and a great introduction to e-commerce.

Affiliate marketing programs are where a company offers to pay you a set amount for either a click through from your website, or a set amount for visitors signing up, or even a percentage of purchase made by visitors as a result of being referred from your website.
