There are a number around. Look at:
As a publisher I have had most success with Tradedoubler and Commission Junction, but it does rather depend what topic area you are interested in.

Can you tell us what kind of topics you have been succesful with?
No need for detailed specifics...
Perhaps the OP means she is a merchant?

Yes, I assumed the OP is a merchant.
I run sites on sustainable construction, gardening and travel. Inevitably travel converts well but is the most difficult because of greatest competition. Gardening is completely seasonal as you would expect. If I were to generalise, I find that the best converting programmes are those with a strong brand name anyway. People are comfortable spending money on a product they already know. Similarly there are some things better suited to mail order than others, although bulkiness is not necessarily a bar -if a large object has to be delivered anyway, then buying online may be just fine.
The one programme that has always converted well for me is a certain well known online bookseller, which has a particularly strong brand and perfectly complements the website content.
In terms of type of links, the best converting is a text link used in association with banner, or a simple search box; one thing I will not do is add flashing banners on my sites (merchants plase note!).

Wow, this is a very good piece of information you gave to this forum Norton! Thank you very much!

Commission junction would be my personal choice. The are spot on with tracking and service if you have any issues with your product

I would say it really depends. I used to do very well with CJ for my UK travel sites, but no more. One advertiser (my best) moved to trade doubler and now I make very little with CJ. Trade doubler, for me anyway seems to have a lot of good advertisers.

Yes, commisssion junction is good for the UK market.. but, don't limit yourself. Think independent affiliate programs and such. CJ does have a wide variety of offers, but they aren't the last stop.
Like I said above, I do recommend them, but keep your options open.

They would not be near the top of most UK affiliates favourites list.
