An affiliate is someone external to Bokun who is reselling your product on their website via an online booking engine you have provided them with or by using a tracking code which redirects customers back to your own website for booking.
Affiliate tracking allows you to keep track of all sales taking place via your affiliates. The affiliate keeps a record of all bookings and payable commission under Affiliate Sales report ("Reports" > "Affiliate sales")
