  • Commission Junction. The largest and easiest of all the networks. I have been an affiliate and merchant of for a long time.

  • ClickBank Marketplace. Elsewhere on this site I recommend ClickBank as an easy way for you to accept credit cards on your site. Clickbank also gives you access to thousands of merchants that use clickbank to sell their information products online and will give you up to 50% of the sales price.
  • LinkShare has hundreds of merchants in its affiliate network. I am affiliated with several LinkShare merchants.
  • QuinStreet affiliate network is a fairly new network with high quality merchants and premium products.
  • Affiliate Options. Some merchants do not join networks. Instead they enter their programs into affiliate directories. Many of these sell Internet-related products, but all kinds of merchants can be found in these directories. I recommend you browse all twelve of Affiliate Options' recommended and other featured affiliate programs. Join all those that you can promote on your site.
