Commission Model

Christys' London® award commission on a multi-attributed basis; Christys' London® found that customers who spent a longer time on site generally had a higher AOV.

This has led to the new model being attributed by engagement so you will have more of the transaction value attributed to you if you direct the customers that spend a longer period of time on site.

Please see the below journey as an example:

Publisher 1: Directs a customer who spends 30 minutes on site before leaving Publisher 2: The customer then returns to the Christys' London® site via another publisher and then spends 10 minutes on site and then purchases

Publisher 1 will receive 75% of the total commission and Publisher 2 will receive 25% of the total commission.

Other channels will also be included in this attributed model. However, brand search and direct to site will not be included.
