List of the 22 Best Affiliate Networks
Joining an affiliate network is a quick way to get access to lots of top affiliate programs all from the same dashboard. You can easily compare different offers and choose which ones to promote. Some networks specialize in one or a few categories and GEOs while others are global and have offers of all categories.
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.
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.
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!
Each product has a page with lots of info describing the product. Marketing material includes articles, full-page ads, logos, and banners.
Great commission rates. Most of the products pay 30% revenue share at the starting tier going up to 40% and 50% for those affiliates that can send a decent daily volume of sales. The 2-tier program is recurring for the lifetime of the affiliate referral.
Members of this network get access to the SellHealth University with SEO, PPC, copywriting long form guides. Great resources for new and experienced webmasters looking to expand their knowledge of affiliate marketing related topics.
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.
Some examples of offers available at this network is a new hair regrowth and preservation product (Provillus) with an impressive $60 CPA and a hair removal product (Dermology) which claims to remove body hair safely without the need for shaving and waxing for both men and women paying $45 CPA.
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.
Quick registration will enable you to start promoting products instantly after submitting your account info.
This affiliate network is available in several languages and so are the offers/programs part of the network (see the list of “target countries” below).
There is also live support on the site that you can use if you have questions. Their affiliate managers offer free optimization tips, and other tips, in lots of different languages. While they do not have a lot of different programs at this point you will find that several of the programs are for online stores with lots of products you can advertise. Multiple online pharmacies are also part of this network.
The network is packed with advertising material and a really user-friendly and modern look. You will find a lot of details about how well each program/offer/product is performing for other affiliates and what commissions in cash and conversion rates you can expect from your effort. You can compare average rates vs. top 10 affiliates rates, a nice way to learn what range of rewards are possible with each offer.

MaxBounty is only offering payouts via Payoneer and that is a drawback.

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.

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.
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.

I believe those are the countries with the most offers at Rakuten Marketing. There’s also lots of offers available for other countries too.
Tradedoubler is an affiliate network with offices around Europe and one in Singapore as well. Tradedoubler is most popular in Spain, Poland, France, Italy, and Germany. It has affiliates from many more countries than those five also.
I find the program search function within the publisher dashboard outdated and looks a little bit like it has been forgotten. However, it is easy to use. They have kept it the same for about 10 years now and I really think it could need a redesign.
Once joined and logged in you can choose to search for affiliate programs by merchant name or product name. It is a little hard to navigate and find the best programs, unless you know exactly what to search for. It is however also possible to filter by some categories and browse that way.
Many of the products at Avangate looks outdated and just not very good. I would really like it if they tidied up the list of network offers and at least removed several test campaigns that they have in their directory.
The list of affiliate programs is easy to navigate and shows useful information like average commission per sale and it also links to each program’s external landing page. Those landing pages are great resources for additional information about the affiliate programs and products.
This network is packed with thousands of products to promote. For mostly any category. The network is mainly focused on all sorts of digital expert guides – but not only. There are also software tools and more.
