Demo Period: A couple ways you can address this. First you can just pay out based on how many people download the demo. If you know your conversion rate of getting the demo users to actually buy the product you can figure out how much you can pay your affiliates. Obvoiusly you would have to pay less than if the person actually made the purchase but that would do away with a waiting period. Example: If you were to have 10% of the demo users buy the product and were willing to pay $10 for every purchase you could just pay $1 for every demo download. I know I don't like delays. It kind of scares me away from program a bit. You could always pay bonuses based on conversion as well so if you have some affiliates who are converting the demos into sales you could reward them further.
