    Since a lot of people are still doing Amazon affiliate even though the commission is so low how about AE affiliate program ? it looks like a better program to me since the commission is higher .

    Any thought s? experience ?

    Thanks.

    You would need to find good niche products.
    Products on Amazon are Legit.
    Products on Ali Express are mostly cheap knock-offs, so you would need to find the right audience.

    Plus when i started using them, i always got a feel something wrong with stats. Not using them right now, amazon and linkshare affs is much better.

    I feel like you would be better off just drop-shipping with them. More profit.

    It's been like that for the past 3 years, and it's ok since they create a sense of urge (fake timer with limited time discounts - just adds a % on original price) for affiliate visits.

    Yes this is what I like, commissions are not that bad and their API is pretty neat for doing lot's of stuff and grabbing lot of info.

    Do you have a source for that? Info that I have just pasted was from their affiliate portals.

    Where did you guys got that info about 24/72h cookie?

    I personally dropped Ali Express because of the long shipping times to USA and other faraway countries thats not in China or close by. Alot of customers will complain about that. no one wants to wait like 21-57 days for a product when there use to getting it at minimum a week.
