Is Affiliate marketing halal?
Disclaimer: This blog is especially for muslims who are not sure if Affiliate marketing is halal or haram (permissible or impermissible)
For those who chose to continue, i thank you for your time. Will try to keep it short.
I am no scholar to give a ruling on this subject. But with anything in this world, what you choose to do with the things you have will define if it is halal or haram.
What is Affliliate marketing?
It is a process of getting commisions when someone buys from your links.
Affliliate marketing will be haram!
It will be haram IF you are selling products which are haram. So, it is upon you to decide which products you would like to promote. This is the crucial step in keeping things halal.
Also, it will be haram only if the cost to buyer is increase due to your commission. But with affiliate marketing, whether they buy it from your like or buying it directly, the cost is same for them. You get comission which is from the seller. So it will he halal.
We can discuss this further in the comments section.
