This option is available to The Verge, Polygon, Vox, and Eater. For questions about affiliate linking on other networks, reach out to your commerce lead or partnership manager.
If your network earns affiliate revenue by recommending products or services, Chorus automatically rewrites most commerce links to include the appropriate tracking information. However, there might be cases where monetizing a product goes against editorial best judgement. In those cases, the automatic monetization process can be turned off on a story-by-story basis.
To turn off automatic affiliate link rewriting:
- Head to the Finalize screen.
- Expand the Advanced section.
- Select Do not apply affiliate links.
- Schedule or publish the story as usual. If the story was already published, hit Publish changes.
Since this option limits revenue potential, it should be used sparingly. When in doubt, consult with your manager.
