What is Lazada Affiliate Program?
Before we get into the process of application, it’s good to understand what Lazada Affiliate Program is all about and how everything works.
There are two ways you can earn from Lazada. You can either become a seller or you can be an affiliate partner. We will be talking about the latter, becoming an affiliate partner, which has a lot of benefits as compared to becoming a seller.
- You don’t need to own a product.
- There is no need for a warehouse to keep your inventories
- You won’t need to ship the products
- Forget about how to deal with customers

How will you make people click the link? There are lot’s of ways. One of the most popular is sharing it through Facebook and other social media sites. This isn’t the most effective way but it still works. If you want to know more about the more effective ways where you don’t need to post in Facebook everyday, I suggest you read this post and follow the free training.
