How do you mean affiliate directory - do you mean affiliate programme such as Affiliate Window etc?

Sorry I should have said Affiliate Network, yep ones just like Affiliate Window.

I looked at them, but when a new affiliate joins they have to pay a 5 admin fee which i think would put alot of new affiliates off joining a new program.

do you know of any other good ones?

Do they - blimey - that must have changed!

Look at Webgains - they seem very keen, also Tradedoubler I know are good from personal experience (actually all 3 mentioned above I have experience with).

Ones to steer clear of I believe are Ocean and DGM.

Affiliate Future are another reputable one.

thanks haggul, what can I expect after joining one of these networks, some of their startup fees are kinda high 500-5000!
and then the monthly fees, plus a commision cut, it seems like such a risk before even getting one sale.

but then just about every website has an affiliate program these days and I hear they can generate alot of sales.

Some big UK firms do use CJ - but they have been grumbled about recently by affiliates because of their planned move (now on hold) to Javascript only links.

What can you expect - not a huge amount in my opinion - they guide you through implementation of tracking, and setting up some creatives/feeds and then you pretty much only hear from them if there is an issue.

It seems feeds perform better than banners etc so make sure you can provide up to date product info to the network - automated if possible.

Depending on your scale look at one of the smaller networks otherwise as you say up front fees are harsh - although if you can swallow that then at least you only pay for sales.

Do a search for affiliate forums or a4u and there will be a whole new world of info opened up to you!

ShareASale look quite good - does anyone have any experience with them, either as a merchant or an affiliate marketer?
(UK based people, ideally)
