As a network dedicated to showcasing the latest technology, Awin are excited to announce the launch of their new partnership with Monotote, an e-commerce technology solution that turns images and video into shoppable products on owned domains.

This solution enables publishers to monetise images on their site, rather than images shared through social media.

What do Monotote do?

Monotote transforms inspirational images and video on your site into shoppable moments, giving audiences the power to shop at the ‘point of inspiration’ within their favourite website or app. By removing distracting redirections, Monotote eliminates the gap between inspiration and purchase, allowing for a seamless shopping experience.

For advertisers, Monotote opens new revenue paths and grows brand value through contextual commerce. For publishers, it allows them to deepen audience connection with their great content and grow loyalty as well as revenue. Monotote has a proven record of increasing conversion and driving greater sales.

“There is now a great opportunity for millions of consumers to be able to buy products when they are most excited by brilliant content – to purchase at the point of inspiration” comments Mike Van Geldorp, CEO Monotote.

Monotote works by tagging images with buy buttons that are linked to a secure and always up-to-date Universal Shopping Cart. Orders are processed onsite through Monotote’s plugin, however, the retailer remains the merchant of record and retains control of the customer experience. You can learn more about how Monotote works here.

“The idea of a universal cart has been around for some years now, but adoption has been slow because of concerns about data security, customer ownership and overly complicated integrations. Monotote have a solution that addresses all of these” says Paul Stewart, Head of Publisher Services at Awin.

How does integration work?

For advertisers, integration is simple and generally uses a real-time feed via an API that can be created by the Monotote team. Publishers can integrate through a simple JavaScript plugin.

How secure is Monotote?

Orders are placed through Monotote’s secure API over an SSL connection, and are highly encrypted. Payment information is deleted from servers immediately after an order is completed, and every part of the process is PCI compliant, meaning advertisers can rest assured that Monotote is secure.
