Just getting started into affiliate marketing or getting back into affiliate marketing after a few years of not doing affiliate marketing and just hanging out on the lazy boy chair watching t.v.? Which affiliate networks actually pay you without having to fight for your money through emails and other red tape? I know a lot of horror stories online about some networks not paying affiliates there commission’s or just disabling their account for no good reason. I’m going to mention what sites that I mainly use because I’ve gotten paid from them without having to pull my hair out fighting with the support team to get it.
- Clickbank – Clickbank has always paid me if I didn’t get more refunds than profit’s. lol One time I was negative $200 in my Clickbank account and had to make a lot of sales to be back in the profit margin or just get to zero balance. I picked the wrong product that have a lot of upsells in it but 3 days later the person wanted a refund from the product owner. I’m thinking it was one of those idiot’s who looking for an easy way to make a living online without having to put the long hours in and wanted a refund because he or she found out, they actually had to do real work to make the money. Be careful in picking Clickbank to promote. Some are total scams and PLR products but some products are actually legit top quality products that actually give real advice and help’s the customer do what the product is intended on doing. CB also has direct deposit for one payment method. I know people have issues with PayPal so the direct deposit payment method is very cool.
- ShareASale – This is another trusted affiliate network to promote offers and receive commission’s for doing so. They have been around for about 12 years now and I really haven’t hard any bad reviews about them. Then again, I wasn’t actually search for bad reviews from them since I have not had any issues with ShareASale. There is over 2,500 Merchants in shareasale and lot’s of opportunities to earn money promoting product’s. Again, this site allows direct deposit in which is what I like. I get my money within a few days of when the payout process starts. (Sometimes it takes a few days for my bank to update my account summary so I don’t see the money for a tiny bit).

I only mentioned 2 affiliate networks because these the ones I use the most. I do join other affiliate programs but they have their own in-house affiliate software installed. Those folks only payment method is through paypal and in some countries it’s hard to keep a paypal account active. I got screwed recently with a membership site I was a member on for over 3 year’s. I was making $150 a month on auto pilot from my downline but then the owner got his paypal account frozen. Basically he couldn’t pay his affiliates no more or receive the monthly membership fee’s we paid him. This was a big loss for me and just goes to show that if you run a membership site or have an affiliate program attached to your business/product, have alternate payment processor’s available. This guy’s business just went down the drain because he wasn’t planning ahead.
Have a great weekend folks. I’m working on some changes with this blogs web host that should give the blog more speed and more security. If you notice any downtime then I am sorry in advance but these changes are needed so anymore traffic spikes won’t kill my hosting account.
To Your Success
