Most of the top online fashion stores selling clothing, shoes, handbags, and accessories have affiliate programs. Here are some of the best.
FlexOffers is a huge affiliate network with a lot of programs for most GEOs. Once you are accepted to join the network you can browse all the programs by category or by using the advanced search function.
Currently, there’s about 11,000 programs part of this network of which 3,700 are for the USA, 980 for the UK, as well as several programs for a lot of other countries. You can browse the programs before you join the network by clicking on “affiliate programs” on the top menu on their website.
The advanced search function can be really useful to filter the programs based on several options. You can, for instance, show all programs that allow deep linking, in the category of clothing and accessories, and are available in the USA. This search currently finds 850 matches.
FlexOffers has a dedicated section related to credit cards which require manual approval to get access to. You need to be able to refer at least 100+ credit card approvals a month and have a great website to qualify.
Many of the best and most popular online stores selling clothing, shoes, and accessories are part of this affiliate network. In fact, there are over 2,700 such programs to promote on FlexOffers. This includes top names like H&M, Verishop, DSW, and Zappos.
CJ is a huge affiliate network featuring offers by a lot of the world’s most well-known brands, including global superstars like TripAdvisor, Samsung.com, and Ray-Ban.com.
Their publisher (affiliate) control panel is very modern and pleasant to the eyes. Easy to use also and provides a lot of information about each offer straight on the advertiser search page. You can also join the individual programs from that same page!
A nice feature about the advertiser search page is that you can filter the results based on useful things like “Serviceable area”, “Language”, and more.
Currently, the network has a total of 2,700+ different offers to promote, of which 1,875 available for USA customers, and 920 for UK customers, slightly less available for French, Spain, Germany, and other countries.
318 offers are currently available in Spanish, 325 in French, while 348 are available in German. There are also offers in other languages.
Currently, there are over 400 clothing stores that are part of this network. The topmost popular and highest-earning ones are zulily, vineyard vines, Torrid, TJ Maxx, SheIn, REVOLVE, Old Navy, Nike, New York & Company, Forever 21. 260 offers are available for the USA while there's 150 for the UK. You can promote to residents of many other countries also. For instance, there are 100 offers available in Sweden.
They have an amazing directory under “Publisher > Advertiser Directory” on the top menu. The directory features all the advertisers / affiliate programs part of the network, and anyone can browse it without logging in. Make sure you set your preferred location by clicking on the flag icon at the top right of their site to show the correct programs for your GEO.
Awin has a neat function for finding high paying affiliate programs. You can sort the list of programs part of the network (after applying relevant filters like GEO and category) by EPC. This will show the highest paying affiliate programs when averaging out what affiliates are able to earn on each click they send the advertiser.
Some of the best paying offers at this time are related to real estate. This is when filtering by US offers. Note that you need to set a GEO or else the list will be made up of different currencies that will mess up the sorting.
Blueground is a website for fully furnished and serviced premium apartments and has a $5.95 EPC at Awin. It is a new program so numbers might change soon though.
Top Villas has been a part of the network much longer and has an average EPC of $3.19 with its global luxury villa renting service. They pay affiliates a 5% or 10% revenue share. Considering how much these villas cost to rent you can earn a lot by sending them business!
Over 1,000 offers available in their clothing category for European traffic, including offers from Ted Baker, Ellos, Vero Moda, Asos, Boohoo. For the US, Awin has only 80 offers in its clothing category. This includes some famous names though like Karl Lagerfeld, Ted Baker US, and Etsy.
Walmart has one of the most popular online stores in the US. It is famous for its low prices and huge selections.
The large selection of products is very well-organized with many categories and filters, making it easy to browse.
Walmart is in many ways Amazon’s strongest competitor in the US online shopping market. Another competitor is Target. The Target affiliate program pays more than Walmart’s when it comes to several product categories, including clothing and more.
What commission rate you will get depends on what products your referred customers buy. The rate is 4% for many categories, 0% for some categories, and 1% for other categories.
Postpaid mobile devices pay $10 CPA and the one-hour photo category pays 3%.
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.
Share A Sale has a clothing category with over 800 offers. Fashion is a sub-category of clothing and it has 380 offers, lots of which are high paying with up to 15% - 20% revenue share. There are also other popular sub-categories including apparel, dresses, and accessories.
The world’s biggest online shopping mall. They offer an advanced affiliate program that lets you promote any of the products available for sale on the site. A “must have” program for any website owner and blogger. It is totally free to join (as with mostly all affiliate programs). With over a million products of mostly any category, there’s something for everyone.
Up to 10% revenue share for luxury beauty products. 7% for fashion related items. Less for other categories of products. 2.5% for PC & PC components, 2% for TVs. You’ll find a list with commission rates here. Their affiliate rewards are pretty decent considering how low the prices for their products are.
The biggest online retailer in North America where one in every three online sales is done through the Amazon marketplace – and it is also big far outside the USA borders as it is expanding into new markets!
This is the affiliate program for one of the top 50 websites in the world, eBay.com.
The commission rate is based on the fee that eBay charges for sales at their site. They pay a share of their profits from sales, depending on the product category. I don’t know exactly how much you could earn from sales, but 50% and higher commission rates sounds good.
The biggest reason to sign up and promote eBay is probably their vast selection of products. A little like Amazon, eBay also has almost every kind of product for sale at any given time.
You will also get access to lots of marketing tools. You can use the link generator or bookmarklet tool to easily create affiliate links to the pages at eBay that you want to promote. This could, for instance, be a search result page, the homepage, or a custom URL.
Etsy is a huge marketplace where people sell handmade, custom, and unique products, perfect for gifts for others or to yourself. It is a huge website and marketplace which is really popular among sellers and buyers. They have over 2 million active sellers, 37 million active buyers, and over 50 million products. And it is all really affordable!
Currently, Etsy is available to promote through the VigLink affiliate network paying 4% – 5% revenue share for sales as well as through the Awin affiliate network with similar commission rates.
At VigLink they offer 12 different programs for different regions. They also have a global offer and that is paying 4% revenue share. At Awin they offer a USA program as well as a ROW (rest of the world) program and 10 more region-specific programs. The ROW program pays 5% revenue share while the USA program pays 4% standard but only 2% for marketing with user-generated content, and 2% for cashback and loyalty sites.
According to Awin stats, their USA program has over double the conversion rates compared with the ROW program, and also almost double the EPC rate.
Etsy has a huge amount of different clothing and accessory products for sale at any given time. At this moment they have listed over 6.2 million clothing and shoe products for sale. 3.2 million clothing products for women and 134,000 shoes for women. 1.7 million men's clothing items and 33,000 men's shoes. While they certainly have fashionable clothes for sale, they do not sell new brand-name products. Instead, the marketplace is full of individuals crafting handmade and customized products.
With the Spreadshirt affiliate program, you can easily deploy a white label t-shirt and clothing store on your own domain. You can also create it on their domain but that limits the customization features. You can design your own products or choose from the many designs already available within their marketplace. You can even add a tool to your website that lets your visitors design their own clothing.
The white label sites are not 100% fully custom-branded. The custom clothing designer tool has backlinks and mentions of Spreadshirt at least.
You can also earn money by creating clothing designs for sale on their marketplace. These will be available in all of the existing white label sites out there and also in their own shop.
Generously paying 20% of the order value in commission, with the possibility to increase that by up to 28% if you can bring a certain volume to your sales. This is a high paying clothing affiliate program.
This is a hugely popular affiliate network with mainly Australian offers. You’ll find about 570 affiliate programs part of the network at this time. Some are accepting global traffic while most of them focus on the Australian market. New ones are added almost daily. You can browse all the programs before you join with their advertiser directory.
The affiliate dashboard is easy to use and modern. Marketing tools include coupons, promotions, data feeds, widgets, videos, images, and of course also text links and banners.
They have some really high paying programs part of the network and they are easy to find
The Clothing & Fashion category features over 180 affiliate programs. Most are available for promotion in Australia and some in New Zealand. There is no way to sort them by best earners or similar and really don't know many Aussie brands and online stores, so I can't tell any specifics regarding these programs.
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.
Besides the top brands mentioned above, you'll also find a lot more highly popular offers here. In fact there's close to 2,400 different ones currently part of their fashion & accessories category. Let me list some of the most important ones: Nike - sports and street fashion shoes, eBay - lots of second hand products, Amazon - Lots of top brands for mostly any kind of product category. And a few of the fashion clothing ecommerce stores: Zappos, boohoo, Showpo, ASOS, Forever 21 and Superdry.
This affiliate network is available with branches for many countries in different languages. Their primary markets though are the UK and the EU. You can find affiliate programs for many niches, including online shops, fashion and jewelry, travel, trading, gambling, and much more.
The UK part of the network has a massive selection of travel-related offers including from famous brands like Momondo and Trivago.
A lot of the most popular brands in Europe are part of this network, and you can advertise the ones that are available in your country.
The affiliate network is translated into a lot of different languages, giving it a local feel and making it easy and convenient to use.
They offer an excellent section on their website that lets everyone browse their current offers part of the network before joining. Browse by category or search for your favorite brands.
vCommission is India’s largest affiliate network, boasting more than 18,000 publishers, 500 merchants and have been in business for more than 10 years.
They’ve got lots of gambling offers for Indian traffic, as well as for EU, UK, US, and Scandinavian traffic. Several casino sites paying $150 CPA.
You’ll also find an assortment of other offers here, including for some of the largest brands in the world like Amazon.in, GoDaddy, Dominos and AliExpress.
Once you sign up, you access an intuitive dashboard that allows you to search for offers based on keywords and or predetermined filters such as country, vertical, and category.
Filtering by vertical seems to be not working at the moment. The category filter seems to miss out some offers, so I would suggest to just browse all of their offers manually without setting filters. It’s just about 200 offers, so that should not be a problem.
Marketing tools include APIs, Pixels/Postbacks, Deeplinking Tool, Smartlinks, and Coupons and more.
I really like that the vCommission affiliate network has a mobile app for both Android and iOS, so you can keep track of your performance on the go. I am also excited about their 2-tier referral program that pays 5% commissions. It does only pay for referred gambling sales though.
The Target affiliate program is a decent one with higher commissions on many product categories than that of their maybe largest competitor Walmart.
Target is a top US department store with a big online presence.
Two of Target’s biggest competitors online are Amazon and Walmart. Target offers up to 8% commission rates for several product categories. For instance, when it comes to apparel, Target offers a commission rate of between 5% and 8% depending on how much sales you generate each month. This beats what both Walmart and Amazon offer.
However, there is a long list of product categories which does not pay any commission at all. At the moment, Target writes that grocery, household commodities and essentials, baby care items (diapers, wipes, food, and toiletries), pets, electronics, toys, sporting goods, movies, video games and consoles, Target Pharmacy and OTC, Target Photo, Target Optical, Target Café, prepaid and gift cards, music, books, SweetJOJO, and contract mobile all are excluded from the affiliate program.
