Best Affiliate/CPA Network for Publishers/Merchants?

5+ Year Member

Msg#: 3929760 posted 5:54 pm on Jun 9, 2009 (gmt 0)


I have been researching affiliate/CPA networks and looking for the best site to use from a publisher/merchant perspective.

I created a list of all the different affiliate/CPA networks I found, but I don't know which one's would be the best to sign up for.

Affiliatefuture, Avantlink, Commission Junction (CJ), ShareASale, Clickbank, Clixgalore, "omg" Network, Affiliate Window, LinkShare, LinkConnector, Tradedoubler, PaidOnResults, DGM, Buy At, CPA Lead, Neverblue, AzoogleAds, Hydra, CX Digital Media, CPA Empire, Click Booth, COPEAC, MAXBounty, etc...

Based on your experience using these networks from a publisher/merchant perspective; which networks do you like the best?

I'm looking for a CPS (cost per sale) type of network.

Thank you,

Network traffic will vary in relevancy to your product. The same traffic won't perform the same with a different product. So you might change your question and ask "Which networks deliver quality sales for 'widgets', and then see what people are willing to tell you.

I know which networks work well for a few niches that I'm not currently working in, sticky mail me with your niche and I might be able to help.

Hi olimits7

You list both affiliate (publisher) and merchant (seller).
Which are you? I will assume you are the merchant/seller?

Many of the networks you listed are CPA networks and don't work well for cost per sale or retail product based programs.

The top 4 CPS affiliate networks are CJ, Linkshare, Google Affiliate Network and Shareasale. So I hope it helps narrow things down for you. If you are a merchant and not an affiliate, then the other thing that will help narrow it down is your budget. CJ and Linkshare are $5,000 - $10,000 just to get set up.

Hope this helps and best of luck!
