Revenue sharing is a billing model for the provision of a service. It is used on the Internet
primarily in affiliate programs. In these Internet-based sales solutions, a provider places its online advertising on the website of a partner, such as an affiliate. In the revenue-sharing model, the provider shares a portion of the revenue generated with the affiliate partner. Revenue sharing is also used in other areas of the Internet, such as user-generated content. In this case, the provider shares part of his revenue with the content suppliers.
