VigLink has changed its name to Sovrn //Commerce. They’re still using the viglink.com domain name though.
I really like that this network has so many world-leading brands part of it. Unfortunately, I think they’ve discontinued their 2-tier commission structure.
You’ll find many of the absolute top fashion brands here like H&M, Victoria’s Secret, and GAP.
It is simply amazing how many brands and companies are part of this network. It can be a bit of a daunting task, however, to browse and find the best offers, due to a lack of information about each program on the merchant browse and search pages.
However, you won’t need to browse their offers at all as this network has three features and tools that will help you out. One is a unique affiliate linking script. It can automatically add relevant affiliate links to the existing content on your blogs and websites.
The second is called “Anywhere” and is accessible within the affiliate dashboard. It lets you paste URLs to product pages on the actual e-commerce stores part of the network and turn those into monetized affiliate links. Note though that you need to have program approval for each store in advance.
The third option is available on the “Anywhere” page and is a bookmarklet. You need to have your bookmark bar showing in your browser and just drag that button to add a new bookmark. Then you can click on that bookmark, while browsing stores participating with VigLink, to create monetized affiliate links that point to that page you are browsing.
If you want to check out this network yourself you can join the network easily with two clicks to connect your login with your Google account. You can also register without a Google account.
The Share A Sale network has been around for a long time now and they have a lot of affiliate programs you can promote as a member. It is actually one of the world’s most popular affiliate networks at the moment. Their site looks a little simple and not too serious, but it is easy to use. The affiliate system is nice looking and comprehensive with many options and features.
It can be a bit hard to find the good offers to promote though as they have a lot of really low quality offers also, unfortunately, and those often appear at the top of the lists. This is a pretty big drawback to me.
You get access to a big database of coupons and deals as well as gift cards to attract clicks and customers to many of the offers.
Many of the programs have great average PPC values. You can easily see the average PPC of each program as well as how much reversal (for instance canceled orders) you can expect from each offer.

Many of the product landing pages are available in a wide range of different international languages including German, French, Spanish, and Italian. You can browse the offers before you join the network by clicking on “offers” in their navigation menu.
The affiliate interface is very easy to use and intuitive, but on the other hand, it looks a little outdated – That won’t stand in the way of the results you can achieve with this network though.
