As It’s not compulsory that who so ever is visiting your website is a Flipkart’s customer.
Some of them may be Amazon’s customer or Myntra’s customer. Some of them may be interested in some services not products. If you are promoting two , three or more companies then it will be easy to reach payment threshold. Even they are not updating about their upcoming sales banners and widgets in their dashboard , it’s really tough for us to find those on Internet. They will not even provide html code for that , and their Widgets are not updated from so long. Theirs are outdated as per current market standard.
You can applying for Flipkart Affiliate account and use it in starting of your blogging carrier. As in starting other Affiliate partners like Vcomminsion and Optmise or Cuelinks won’t give you approval. But once you get some experience and your site grows then try to apply for companies which have a larger collection of campaigns. As promoting only products of Flipkart and getting your payment is tough. So join other third part Affiliate companies which have a list of live campaigns and their threshold payment is low. You will get a list of upcoming and running offers , coupons on your email. From there you can post those on Blog or Website.
