Network offers

The network is especially big with fashion clothing & accessories stores and interior and health-related programs. They also feature A LOT of programs for other categories.

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.

Estimated Global Popularity: Maximum.
