Quality and Integrity

Merchants are different. Some are respectful and will pay good commissions, but we have others, who will use you to get more customers on their websites and refuse to pay you. You should beware of such merchants. Before taking up any assignment, ensure that the person you are working for is honest and reputable. Online reviews should help you learn what previous affiliates think of them.

Commission Payout

The first thing any affiliate will look at is the commission payout before taking any program. You should work with companies giving generous commissions as per their products. Compensation is a motivation for any job and so is commission in affiliate marketing. Some people will jump to programs which pay 90% commission, but it is the right decision? I would say no, because, if you do not make sales that month, it means that you will not get paid. Be wise and consider all the aspects around the program before working for them.


The merchants’ website is another real deal. Do not forget that, customers will be directed to the merchant’s website for final purchases. Ensure that, the program you are working for has a well-built website, which is easy to navigate and attractive. Your main goal is for people to buy the goods for you to get the commission hence the importance of a good merchant’s website. Customers should be able to access the product details, prices and shipping details with ease for them to buy.
