Can I use my own affiliate?

There are 2 answers to this and it depends what you mean by own affiliate.

For a hair & beauty professional
You may but the barrier of entry can be unrealistically high. Sometimes, It takes days, weeks and even months to get on board with your local distributor or an online seller. Some online affiliates networks may not even allow you to join. For example, If you do not have enough followers or subscribers. These online affiliates will prevent you from accessing the system.

For a distributor
You can but you have to have a website that is set up with your own affiliate system in place. Which is extremely expensive and time consuming to set up. You can shortcut this by partnering the GoSalon network to enable all of your existing customers to benefit from this new way of retailing. Click for more
