ShareASale is an affiliate marketing network. ShareASale serves two client groups in affiliate marketing: Publishers and Merchants. Publishers use ShareASale to find products to promote and get commissions on merchant products.

In short, ShareASale is an intermediary between affiliates and merchants:

Publishers: Bloggers or content creators who write reviews about the product on the blog and promote the merchant's product. In return, get a commission from the merchant.

Merchants: Business owners, sellers, etc. who have products/services to sell. They will pay content publishers who promote their products/services to promote the sale of their products or services.
