RoboForex is a very popular online forex broker according to Alexa website traffic statistics.
The website is translated into 18 languages for global reach.
The affiliate program has an attractive but kind of complicated commission structure.
Let’s see if I get it right:
They pay 50% base revenue share with a possibility for an increase of up to 60%. Your monthly commission can then be increased by 10%, 15%, or 20% if you make more than $500, $15,000, or $30,000 any given month. I don’t know if that applies to your total commission or just some of it over certain thresholds.
They’ve also got a great 2-tier program paying 10%. Upon request this can be changed to an even more attractive multi-tier commission structure – but then your 1st tier will be only 35%.
They offer a really attractive CPA rate for lots of different GEOs. The highest paying GEOs include Australia, France, Germany, Spain, the UK, and more. All qualifying for the top $650 CPA rate.
In total, there are 30 accepted GEOs you can promote this affiliate program to. This does not include the US.
The highest paying GEOs are Australia, Austria, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, United Kingdom for which they pay a flat CPA rate of $400.
Other tier GEOs pay $300, $200, and $100.
This may be a little lower than many other similar affiliate program but they’ve got something that makes them pretty attractive for affiliates that can send them some volume anyways. That is their bonus scheme.
Affiliates that send them 30 – 49 qualified accounts in a given month gets a $3,000 bonus. Affiliates managing to send 50+ gets a $10,000 bonus. That equates to a bonus of $200 per qualified account for affiliates sending 50 qualified accounts their way.
Pacific Union offers online trading in over 120 countries worldwide. They have over 120,000 clients.
The affiliate program they offer is similar to that of many other CFD and forex trading programs. Both in that it uses the same software solutions as many of its peers and in that it rewards affiliates very well for referring new traders.
The commission rates range between $100 and $650 CPA depending on the country of your referred clients. Traffic from most countries seems to pay between $300 and $650 though.
As for the 2-tier program, you’ll get $25 for each client your referral brings to Pacific Union. This is a bit different from the traditional 10% referral rate that most other trading affiliate programs offer.
Trading cryptos like Bitcoin and Ethereum is tremendously popular to do in 2020, and this service enables that.
They also pay well with a 5-tier scheme starting at 20% revenue share for the 2-tier, and less for the other tiers.

This is the affiliate program for the popular Vantage FX forex broker.
I believe it is Australian as their website is most popular in Australia according to its Alexa traffic stats.

This is a high paying affiliate program paying up to $600 CPA depending on the GEO of your referrals. They offer 4 different GEO tiers with paying between $100 and $600 CPA.
In addition to the CPA, you can earn comes a monthly bonus. To get the bonus you need to refer at least 30 monthly qualified accounts. That will earn you $3,000. If you send over 50 you can qualify for the top bonus of $10,000.
They do also offer a hybrid program with lower CPA rates and lower bonuses. Instead, you can earn rebates. I am not familiar with what that means. You can read more about it on their affiliate program site.
I do not know much about forex trading, so I can’t tell you if this commission rate of 0.4 pips/lot to 0.6 pips/lot is high or low.
But I know that ZuluTrade is a hugely popular service because their website has great stats.
Their service is connecting profitable traders with newer traders that want to automate their trading following the profitable traders. It is some kind of a social trading platform for forex.
