1 Walmart 0% - 4% revenue share.

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%.

2 MaxBounty Wide range of commission rates. 5% 2-tier commission for 1 year.

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.

You will also find lots of personal loan offers for the US market, and a few for the UK market. These pay up to $120 CPA. They’ve also got a small business loan offer paying $280 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.

3 vCommission Wide range of commission rates. 5% 2-tier revenue share for gambling offers.

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.

4 Sovrn //Commerce Wide range of commission rates.

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.

Merchant explorer
Network offers

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.
