Advertiser directory
Advertiser directory

They have an amazing directory under “Publisher > Advertiser Directory” on the top menu. The directory features all the advertisers / affiliate programs part of the network, and anyone can browse it without logging in. Make sure you set your preferred location by clicking on the flag icon at the top right of their site to show the correct programs for your GEO.

Beauty Offers: Awin has a category called health & beauty. It currently has 632 offers part of it. 560 of which are available for marketing in Europe and 260 in the UK. 73 available for North America and 66 for the USA. Only 12 of the offers are available for marketing in the rest of the world, including 5 for Asia.

Dating Offers: None of the dating sites you can promote with Awin is for the US market. All of them are for the European market. I see many top brands in their list, including Lovescout 24, Elite Singles, Be2, C-date, eHarmony, Meetic, and Victoria Milan. Several of these offers have high average conversion rates at 5% to 10%, and high average EPC of more than €0.5.

Fashion Clothing Offers: Over 1.000 offers available in their clothing category for European traffic, including offers from from Ted Baker, Ellos, Vero Moda, Asos, Boohoo. For the US, Awin has only 80 offers in their clothing category. This includes some famous fashion brands though like Karl Lagerfeld, Ted Baker US, and Etsy.

Health Offers: The Health & Beauty Category has over 700 offers. 87 for North America and 636 for Europe. There are 17 offers for the rest of the world.

Trading Offers: The category of Savings & Investments at Awin has 6 offers in the USA. At least one of these are trading related, and that is The Motley Fool offer, paying $100 CPA. For Europe, that category has 16 offers. Udemy is one of those. Udemy is a huge online marketplace for courses. It is packed with trading education. A search for "trading" yields over 2.500 results. The only downside is that the default revenue share is only 15%. It can go up to 20% or 30% though, based on your performance. You can also promote Charles Stanley Direct UK and their "stocks & shares ISA with free dealing of funds, a SIPP pension product and low cost self-service trading in stocks and shares." They pay £20 CPA.

Gambling Offers: You'll find the gambling affiliate offers of Awin under "Sector > Telco's & Services > Gambling & Competitions". At the moment there's 36 offers in that category. 5 of those are available for promotion in the North America (only 2 for the USA). The rest is available for promotion in Europe. Some of their best performers are the sports betting brands Bet At Home DE and 888 Sport, the casino brand 888 Casino, the lotto brand Lottoland, and the UK bingo brand Tombola. You can also promote 888 Poker, Ladbrokes BE, and 888Games.com.

Currently, you’ll find 975 clothing related programs, 700 travel related, 561 health & beauty related, 31 dating related, and much more!

I really like that this network has a 2-tier program, even though it does not pay recurring commissions.

Awin has a neat function for finding high paying affiliate programs. You can sort the list of programs part of the network (after applying relevant filters like GEO and category) by EPC. This will show the highest paying affiliate programs when averaging out what affiliates are able to earn on each click they send the advertiser.

Some of the best paying offers at this time is related to real estate. This is when filtering by US offers. Note that you need to set a GEO or else the list will be made up of different currencies that will mess up the sorting.

Blueground is a website for fully furnished and serviced premium apartments and has a $5.95 EPC at Awin. It is a new program so numbers might change quickly though.

Top Villas has been a part of the network much longer and has an average EPC of $3.19 with their global luxury villa renting service. They pay affiliates 5% or 10% revenue share. Considering how much these villas cost to rent you can earn a lot by sending them business!

Main markets: Europe, but also worldwide.
