ShareASale Review: a High-Paying and Reliable Affiliate Network

ShareASale is part of Awin (Rated the top CPS Network by mThink) and one of the largest and most popular affiliate marketing networks. It services two main characters in affiliate marketing: the affiliate, and the merchant.

Affiliates use ShareASale to find products to earn commissions and a large number of merchants attract experienced affiliates through it to join their programs.

According to ShareASale statistics:

  • earned by affiliates last year: $1.3bn
  • affiliates join every day: 260
  • brands across all sectors: 21,200+
  • sales generated in 2021: 194m

So whether you want to become an affiliate/publisher or merchant, it is always a profitable affiliate marketing network for you.

For ShareASale Affiliates/Publisher: Earn big commissions

    There are two ways for affiliates/publishers to make money:

    First of all, you should create a ShareASale account in advance.

    1. Choose a merchants’ program and join

    Thousands of merchants on ShareASale opened their programs for affiliates. Your task is to pick the merchants or products that you are interested in and apply for their programs.

    For merchant programs, there are also two types: Pay-Per-Sale and Pay-Per-Lead.

    Actually, ShareASale has Pay-Per-Click, but there isn’t any merchant in this affiliate marketing type.

    In your dashboard, in the merchants drop-down menu at the top, click Search for merchants to enter the merchants’ search page, and select the merchants you are interested in according to the category.

    For affiliates outside of North America, I personally recommend using Payoneer to collect ShareASale commission. This is the most convenient way.
