New affiliate program: would you participate?

Affiliate program of Smailex shipping service. Investigation of an interest

Hi,

I need your advice.

We are developing a Shipping service.
In short, it collects quotes of many couriers and helps a user to find the best one that fits his needs and saves money.
As you understand, our target audience is any individual who sends a parcel at least once a year.


Now, we are thinking about creating some affiliate program for web-masters. We are ready to pay some fixed price for each client that buys.
Our own monetization is based on a commission that we have from couriers (Fedex, UPS, others). So, we can afford to pay about 2$ for each sale generated by a webmaster.

The question is: whether it's an interesting deal for web-masters or not. And Why.

Pheraps you should phrase the question more openly and generally - ie. what makes an affiliate program attractive for you.

For me, it is simple: Does it match with the needs of my users? If so, does it pay more than other means of advertising I could use the space for?

no i wouldn't participate? sounds like being an affiliate of an affiliate of an affiliate programs.

considering each service already pays more I would probably just join their affiliate programs directly and make more money.
