Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
Looks like amazon would do everything but would like to be able to pay out more than what amazon pays affiliates, (8% of $20.00 is not worth the affiliates time -- got to be at least 25%). CJ has a high setup cost, clickbank sells mostly electronic media. The products are political and Christian media and DVDs and the goal is to move product.
I would really like it to be easy for both sides ... Letting affiliates make some money and not require anything from the producers site that requires major configuration.
So I would like to hear from anybody who has two cents; The program must be affiliate friendly. Be nice if it could to be ready to rock and roll within a week on the producer site.
If you're actually looking for a true "affiliate network" solution (one that does not include payment processing), then I'd strongly recommend that you consider ShareASale.com, which has lower expenses and much higher satisfaction ratings than any competitors I'm aware of.

They have little presents on the internet, they contracted with some people and paid up front and little happened.
A few of their products I believe could do well selling on different types of sites (this is likely a extreme understatement), they want to move product and the fastest way for them to move lots of product would be across a network of sites. It would also be nice if the network does not require a high dollar value to be earned before sending affiliates their money -- I'd like to bring some sites into the network that does not currently sell products. I would not want a site that only sells one product to not get paid until after they sell 10 of them.
Two good networks are Shareasale and Avantlink (supportive and ethical), but if you want a dynamic solution done for you for affiliates to use, Avantlink is the logical choice because they have a unique set tools for just that. They're more than SAS for start-up (the hardest part), but their on-going percentage is very low.
