List of the 52 Best Trading Affiliate Programs
The best trading affiliate programs are really high paying. Earn up to $1,000 CPA and beyond promoting online CFD trading, forex trading, cryptocurrency trading, and more.
The AAX affiliate program is a great one with high commission rates for high performing affiliates.
They offer 6 tiers of commission rates. The revenue share you can earn is between 20% and 40% depending on your performance. Their sub-affiliate scheme is fixed at 10% which is awesome.
I believe they offer recurring revenue for the life of the customers you refer because they state on their website that: “When someone registers with AAX using your referral code, you will earn a commission on the fees of every single trade they make.”
They also offer crypto savings plans with interest and a few other things. I am not that knowledgeable about cryptos though so I’ll leave it at this.
Bityard claims to be the world’s leading cryptocurrency contracts exchange. They are headquartered in Singapore and accept traders from over 150 countries. They’ve got over 100,000 traders using their services.
They offer up to 100 leverage when trading Bitcoin, 80 for Ethereum, 50 for Dash, and other cryptocurrencies.
Their affiliate program looks great with high commission rates of up to 60% of all trading fees. The lowest commission tier is for referring friends and pays 5% revenue share for 6 months.
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.
The Banking/Trading category at CJ features about 30 affiliate programs. Some of the highest earners on the network amongst these are CIT Bank, BBVA, Zacks Trade, and SmartAsset. These pay commissions between $40 and $100.
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!
The category of Savings & Investments at Awin has 6 offers in the USA. At least one of these is trading related, and that is The Motley Fool offer, paying $100 CPA. For Europe, that category has 16 offers. Udemy is one of those. Udemy is a huge online marketplace for courses. It is packed with trading education. A search for "trading" yields over 2,500 results. The only downside is that the default revenue share is only 15%. It can go up to 20% or 30% though, based on your performance. You can also promote Charles Stanley Direct UK and their "stocks & shares ISA with free dealing of funds, a SIPP pension product and low-cost self-service trading in stocks and shares." They pay £20 CPA.
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.
There are lots of trading-related affiliate programs to promote part of this network. It seems to be mostly educational products. A search for "forex" yields 10 merchant results and 100+ product results. This includes ForexMentor.com with their forex trading courses that pay around $50 in commission each. A search for "trading" yields 254 merchant results. The top result for this search is Top Dog Trading, paying 25% of sales and has an average order value of $200, which also equates to about $50 for a sale. They offer day trading and swing trading forex, futures, and stock market courses. The second result is True Trading Group which offers an online educational platform and trading community teaching people how to become consistently profitable traders.
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.
You can join this affiliate program quickly by just providing your email address and enter a password for your login. Then you need to confirm your email to get access to the affiliate dashboard.
Kingfin is the affiliate program for Olymp Trade.

Quick registration with e-mail only.
To join this affiliate program you need to provide details about your traffic GEOs and how you will be marketing their offers. Be it from your websites, social media, PPC, or e-mail. You do also need to provide documents for proving your physical address and identity.
In the signup process, you will also be asked if you want a CPA or revenue share commission and then the affiliate managed will suggest a rate for you. I believe it can be negotiated. I was offered a 25% revenue share and a $40 2-tier CPA. The CPA you can earn for sending depositing traders is between $200 and $1,000, which makes this one of the highest paying affiliate programs currently listed at Affiliate Marketing Pro!
The Trade.com and Finq.com CFD trading brands are the 2 most popular ones you can promote with this affiliate program. Each offers a large amount of different CFD trading products for forex, commodities, indices, stocks, ETFs, bonds, and cryptocurrencies.
Each of those two sites is also translated into a lot of languages suitable for traffic from lots of countries.
There are lots of products you can promote within this affiliate network. The top offers have classic one-page affiliate landing pages with sales copy and large call-to-action buttons. They also focus on product launches.
You will often not only get a commission for the initial sale, but also from upsells and recurring charges.
Some top programs include a video editing software, a video editing guide, and a make money online guide. You can easily browse the offers available at the network by clicking on “affiliates” and “find offers” after logging in. You can filter the list based on category, and sort it based on the total amount of sales or EPC, to find the top offers quickly.
Note though that some offers are outdated, as if they were for product launches that have already happened. I would like it if they kept the list of offers updated, and also if they did provide a bit more details about the products right on the “find offers” page.
This is a very popular affiliate network with global offers.
This network is packed with over 200 dating programs. The highest EPC ones are at the moment Elite Singles with their $6 PPL offer, Dating.com with their $160 PPL offer, and Ashley Madison and their $125 PPL offer.
You will also find over 250 eCommerce offers which include offers from famous brands like Hewlett-Packard, Alibaba, Shutterstock, and Home Depot.
They’ve also got close to 250 financial programs, and this includes some really high paying ones. Sorting by EPC shows that the highest-earning offers are related to tax relief, crypto, Bitcoin, and forex trading. Some of which are paying close to $500 CPA.
Health is another huge category at MaxBounty with over 270 offers, many of which are paying really well with average EPC rates of more than $1.00 and CPA rates above $50 and even $100. Most of these are available for promotion to the US market, but quite a bit also allow for worldwide promotion.
MaxBounty is only offering payouts via Payoneer and that is a drawback.
