How to create an affiliate network? I mean the system. Any advice?

19 replies
people advising against creating the network get away, please.

I need to create the system in my own server. it doesn't have to be fancy. It can be something simple but need to track the conversions and kickback to both advertisers and publishers.

Need to have advertisers and publishers sign in, etc

I've tried
revive adserver but didn't seem to work as an affiliate network.
hassoffers has click limit which is ridiculous.
idevdirect has no option for advertisers ...

any ideas? this project is highly important.
thank you

    I'd suggest Googling the following to check out all your options...

    affiliate network wordpress plugin

    I found AffiliateWP; it is only $499 for the Ultimate one-time payment...

    There is also a bunch of less expensive ones.

    I wish you the best in your quest!

    Broken promises don't upset me. I just think, why did they believe me?

    none of those platforms work as a network... only as a program...

    I think you shouldn't reply if you don't know what you are talking about...

      CAKE is the #1 platform used by networks!

        hmm it appears they have several versions of the software... is it clickcapped as well or can be fully purchase to put on own server?

          nah ... 300k click cap? that's like half a day depending on the media... need something without those caps. Actually I don't even care about tracking all the clicks only the conversions.

    300K is Cake Basic.

    You have to track clicks for EPC stats.

    The top 3 network platforms are cake, hasoffers, hitpath.

    oh, we don't care about EPC. All the offers are CPA and the advertiser track the clicks after we sent it to them. They kick-back the conversions in case there is a match. We just have to keep the conversions on our system and maybe also be able to kick it back to the publisher.

      I've been promoting affiliate / CPA offers for almost 17 years.

      I would never send traffic / work with a network like you are proposing.

        I will also never pay 500$ a month for 500k clicks per month when I can set a server for 20$ month with AWS.

    it's not for a public network.

    It doesn't matter if it is public or private.

    Clearly, you have no experience as a publisher or what a publisher is going to expect in order to send you traffic. All you care about is how little money you can spend. When it comes to trying to start a network, it's just not going to work.

    I already said our sites have more than 10 million clicks per day so yeah I have some "experience".

    publishers care about making money same as me. Maybe you care about something else...
    Also none of those networks you mentioned support so much traffic sadly...
    some said 5000$ by day just for the tracking of the clicks... absurd.

    you might have some little experience promoting some campaigns but you have no idea about networks.

    also, read my first comment and stop trolling.

      I've been promoting affiliate / CPA offers for almost 17 years and I know multiple network owners and a lot about them. I'm also going to be setting up my own network.

      Good luck.
