Top Brands: Amazon, eBay, H&M, Gap, Nike.
Commissions: Various commissions for each program. 35% (of the network share) 2-tier commission for the first year.
I really like that this network has so many world leading brands part of it. It is also great that they offer a decent 2-tier commission structure, unlike most other networks. You’ll find many of the absolute top fashion brands here like H&M, Victorias Secret and GAP.
You will also find lots and lots of other categories with affiliate programs part of this network. This includes top dating sites like Be2, C-Date, Be Naughty, Adult Friend Finder, Ashley Madison, eHarmony.
It is simply amazing how many brands and companies are part of this network. It can be a bit of a daunting task however, to browse and find the best offers, due to lack of information about each program on the merchant browse and search pages.
However, you won’t need to browse their offers at all as this network has three features and tools that will help you out. One is a unique affiliate linking script. It can automatically add relevant affiliate links to the existing content on your blogs and websites.
Top Brands: Viator, Balsam Hill, Fanatics.com, Grammarly, WP Engine.

The Share A Sale network has been around for a long time now and they have a lot of affiliate programs you can promote as a member. It is actually one of the world’s most popular affiliate networks at the moment. Their site looks a little simple and not too serious, but it is easy to use. The affiliate system is nice looking and comprehensive with many options and features.
The network is especially big with fashion clothing & accessories stores and interior and health related programs. They also feature A LOT of programs for other categories.
It can be a bit hard to find the good offers to promote though as they have a lot of really low quality offers also, unfortunately, and those often appear at the top of the lists. This is a pretty big drawback to me.
You get access to a big database of coupons and deals as well as gift cards to attract clicks and customers to many of the offers.
Many of the programs have great average PPC values. You can easily see the average PPC of each program as well as how much reversal (for instance canceled orders) you can expect from each offer.
