Skimlinks is a leading e-commerce monetisation & data platform connecting over 1.5m publisher domains (Conde Nast, Hearst, NYTimes) with 20,000+ retailers/ merchants (Net-a-porter, Amazon, Wayfair, ASOS...). Skimlinks rewards publishers for driving e-commerce by turning product links and product references in their content into trackable affiliate links.
