Top 10 Affiliate Networks For 2017

Affiliate Networks


An affiliate network acts as an intermediary between publishers (affiliate marketers) who sell products and services and the merchants who create those products and services and their affiliate programs.

For merchants, affiliate network services provided often include reporting, tracking, payment and refund processing, affiliate management, and most importantly – access to a large base of publishers (affiliate marketers).

For affiliate marketers, network services include a central database of available affiliate programs organized by category and popularity to choose from, a simple registration platform for those programs, reporting tools, analytics, and payment processing.

While affiliate marketers are generally able to join affiliate networks for free, merchants usually have to pay a fee to participate in the network. Affiliate networks usually charge an initial setup fee for each merchant and often a recurring membership fee. It’s also common practice for affiliate networks to charge merchants a percentage of the commissions paid to affiliates. This percentage is known as an ‘over-ride’ and is payable on top of the affiliates commissions. But make no mistake about it, despite these fees, the benefits to the merchant for joining these networks is well worth the price. Here’s why…

There are several payout models used by affiliate networks including the two primary models: CPS and CPA.


CPS, also referred to as PPS (Pay Per Sale), is a low-risk, high-profit, revenue-sharing model used by marketers to lure an unlimited number of new customers to their product or service. Cost-Per-Sale pays a set commission to the affiliate marketer who refers a lead that results in a purchase. Marketers love the CPS model since they only pay a commission after they get paid first by the purchasing customer. It’s in essence free marketing and advertising since the affiliate is the one who produces the lead without any up-front cost to them. This is also why CPS payout commission percentages are so high. Incidentally, the CPS model is primarily what we focus on here at highpayingaffiliateprograms.com.


CPA marketing programs pay affiliates when a specific action is taken by the referral or lead. Common actions include clicks, impressions, form submits, sign-ups, registrations, or opt-ins. Since Cost-Per-Action models don’t necessarily involve a direct sale (and involve more risk taking) the payout percentages are far smaller than they are in Cost-Per-Sale.

High End Product Launches

One of the very best ways to earn big ticket commissions is to promote high end product launches. But there’s definitely a fine art to it so if you’re new to affiliate marketing I would encourage you to NOT focus on promoting product launches until you know more. 

The product launches I’m referring to are targeted toward other internet marketers and they attract the very best online entrepreneurs in the world. It’s extremely competitive and requires a lot of work. It helps a lot to have a sizeable list of followers that are also interested in affiliate marketing.

  11. For me I would choose a program with Recurring commission. You can build a real passive income. Its the best way to go! One suggestion is contact companies who sell services and ask if you can sell their service for them. Sometimes popular affiliate programs like these have just way too many people trying to sell their service. I personally went to sitecare.ca and asked them if I could sell their service and I couldn’t be happier! So find a service you believe in and go for it!

    We have “Carefully” scoured through ALOT of the “Affiliate Networks” in hopes of adding the right content for our visitors. The trueth is; whether it be the least popular networks OR the top notch programs, they each have various conditions which will screw you from generating revenue. Adding their links and promoting their advertisers is nothing more than a waste of YOUR time and YOUR webspace if you don’t get paid to have them there sooo, don’t get in a hurry to join any affiliate programs until you read through their “Terms & Conditions” thoroughly and completely!
    We found that in certain cases, they start the legal literature in a passive manner however, during the conclusion they have the right to NOT pay the publisher “at their own discretion.”
    They also have the right to terminate your acceptance and account,,”at their own discretion, without due cause.”
    So, the final conclusion here is this; DON’T GET SCAMMED. Read EVERYTHING carefully!!

  20. Best networks for me – network with smartlink. I’m tired constantly adjusting advertising campaigns, it’s so time wasting. I’m using smartlink from affiligh()com for mobile traffic and sapphirum()com for desktop traffic. One link contains 2000+ offers, adjusted with geo, os, device users.

    Posted by Olivia | December 26, 2016, 9:38 am
  21. You’ve done a good job at posting the affiliate programs however, Adding links for “reviews” or posting reviews is (in my oppinion) vital for people to know what they are to expect. As an example;
    “Flexoffers” is moreso a headache and scam more than a good affiliate service. They have no “Terms & Conditions” posted anywhere. They also have NO “Registration Requirements” posted anywhere, yet they state you must be “Approved” to qualify. These are vital legal pages that should be openly available but they seem to make them up as they go.
    More information about each service would benefit the people as to who’s credible and who’s not.

  25. I like the Playdoit affiliate’s program stuff. Its an online betting (for the ones who don’t know about it), btw.. You just need to invite players, and the 30% of their losses from now on goes to you. (Once you get a player, the money comes by itself, it’s like Cost-Per-Action, but you won by the actions of who you invited. Thanks for your post!

  42. Hi there,

    I’m a newbie and just stumbled into this article, which I find hugely informative. So thank you for writing this article. I’m close to finishing building my very first website and don’t have a domain yet, but have a question. Since affiliate program is considered a business, I’m wondering how do we set up a simple LLC one person company to separate our personal stuff from our online business stuff? Is there a simple reliable step-by-step guide we can follow, or does anyone here can advise with your own experiences? Thank you.

    Posted by Mike | July 29, 2016, 9:00 am
    • As each state is different, I can only tell you about federal requirements in general. A limited liability company (LLC) is composed of members. When an LLC is composed of only one member, by default, it is disregarded for federal income tax purposes. This means the member will report all the activities of the LLC in Schedule C, just as a sole proprietor would, and attach Schedule C to the member’s personal income tax return, or Form 1040.

    equally educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something that too few folks are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy I came across this during my hunt for something regarding this.
