Website owners now have the opportunity to sell antiques and collectibles through a new affiliate program launched by TIAS.com, the Web's largest and oldest online antique and collectibles mall. For online content publishers who serve collectors of antiques and collectibles, the new TIAS affiliate program gives them the unique ability to include a search box with their content so that their readers can purchase the items mentioned on their Web site. As an example, a Web site that published stories about collectible pottery, vintage Barbies or antique furniture could include a search box with each story to allow the reader to actually see and buy the items mentioned. The publisher would then be paid a commission for all sales that result from that referral.

Web retail sites that specialize in selling antiques and collectibles can increase their available inventory by over 500,000 items. If their customers can't find what they are looking for, the merchant can refer the customer to TIAS and make money from the referral. The TIAS affiliate program gives online retailers the ability to convert more of their customers into happy buyers and brings additional revenue to their site as well.

"We are very excited about this new program. With over half a million antiques and collectibles for sale online, we've got something for just about any collector," said Phillip Davies, President of TIAS.com "Publishers that cover our trade have been scrambling for ways to increase the revenue from their Web sites. Our new affiliate program gives online publishers and retailers the opportunity to increase their online revenue."
