    Both of the affiliate programs suck, but there are no better alternatives.
    The only choice you can make with that regard is whom you gonna sell to.

    Russians buy on AliExpress.
    Americans on Amazon.
    Brits buy on Amazon.uk
    etc

    Why do you need affiliate program from these two companies when you are selling physical product?

    You can actually do dropshipping and collect cash payment upfront. Instead of waiting 60 days for Amazon/ Aliexpress to payout.

    Aliexpress: products are based in China. Long shipping time. Customers don't usually like to wait that long for their items
    Amazon: products are based in USA (assuming that you are selling in USA). Fast shipping - 5 to 7 days.

    You may do better finding sources on CJ.com for selling products as an affiliate.

    There is a huge variety of tangible and intangible products offered there that may fit what you want to market.

    Go for Aliexpress it is good and you get to buy direct from Manufacturers so your margins are very good. @Yarosss aliexpress affliate plugin it is great i have read many positive review. He is also making drop ship plugin for woocommerce which he is planning to release shortly.

    CJ.com has a ton of diversity... go there and take a look and see what you think you could market.

    The hell, sorry i meant Venezuela.
    Try with Aliexpress + Facebook groups
    I think that is illegal Amazon + Facebook groups i dont know if your account can be baned with this method.

    Read and good luck!

    You need to sell a lot in order to justify the investment.
    For example, on clickbank you can make 10 sales/day and get $300 on average.
    To net the same amount on Amazon/AliExpress you will have to generate ~100 sales a day.

    I think finding a product that sells should be first. Working a way round the product to add value to the reader/user, second. For the right affiliate program; tools and resources, commission percentage and support. I think these are basic facts to consider when choosing what may work for you.

    Hi, i just start Amazon affiliate program on my site, but i have a an issue about products, their links don't open in new windows, i tried to modify on code Amazon by adding target="_blank" but its not acceptable i don't know if the Amazon dosen't premit to add anything on code.
    What i do in this case.
    The products are link images, at your opinion i should put the price to give more informations or just pictures links are enough.
    Thanks for advance.

    Hi,

    I used aliexpress affiliate program last year and got dissapointed. Since september 2015, they cut off the 30-days cookies and from that moment sales dropped from 50/day to 2/day. Now their program is session based, as soon as potential customer closes his browser, you can't earn from his purchase (unless he follows ur affiliate link one more time and makes a purchase).

    At the moment I think amazon offers better program, they offer 24hr cookies, and if you target USA or UK you can make fine sales. Commisions are about the same (~8%). I became amazon associate few weeks ago and by now I made 33 sales resulting in ~400$ earnings.

    I must add this - google is not a fan of our affiliate websites. I use email marketing + a few blackhat methods to get my website some decent traffic and a few sales daily. U should be 80% concentrated on products which have price range 150$-400$ and 20% concentrated on cheap products. Cheap products are selling more frequently and can get you higher commision rate at the end of the month. Use social media, it's also a good way to get traffic (and with more traffic more $$$ is earned).

    I hope you find some of those information helpful on your journey, cheers!
