I posted this topic under the "Affiliates" category, but haven't received any feedback from there; so I decided to try here.
I'm a US merchant and I'm looking to join some affiliate network websites in the UK. Can someone recommend some of the more popular cost-per-sale affiliate networks in the UK that I can try joining?
I'm currently using AffiliateFuture and Clixgalore in the US, but haven't really been receiving many sales from these affiliate networks.
However, an update on this post I've been in contact with TradeDoubler and AffiliateWindow (BuyAt) so far and they can't accept me because orders are not charged in GBP; instead I charge all my orders in USD.
My website has a currency converter where intl customers can view the prices in their home currency, but when orders are submitted they are charged in USD.
I thought this wouldn't matter because I could have my programmer just send the GBP total price to these affiliate networks this way the commissions are calculated properly based on GBP and not USD, but they said that being able to submit orders in GBP makes a huge difference in conversion rates which encourages UK customers to purchase more.
I beg to differ with this statement because I've been receiving orders just fine from the UK and I charge all my international customers in USD.
So now I'm looking into:
- Can anyone recommend a multi-currency payment processor that allows customers to submit their orders in their own home currency?
- I checked with Authorize.Net and they only accept USD currency, but I'm not sure if PayPal or GoogleCheckout allow this?
- Are there any other good UK affiliate networks that I can try contacting that would be more helpful in setting up an account?
