    I'm interested in promoting e-cigarettes online, but am having trouble finding a good affiliate. I think I have found a decent one named Green Smoke, but am finding mixed reviews online, which is usual with almost any affiliate marketing. However, I was wondering if anyone has used this affiliate before and if so do they shave sales at all and do they pay on time or at all? Also I seem to notice they give you a "website" to track your sales but I notice after I type in the URL of my aff. account the URL redirects to their main site without the affiliate account in the URL. This raises some red flags to me.

    Anyway, any help or advice would be helpful before I start promoting.

    Thanks in advance!

    Check the source code of the page, many time the ID is stored in php variables to track on the backend. so in the source code you should be able to see your ID number

    I made a killing with ecigs when they first came out...But they are old news now and the tobacco companies are making sure they don't become the future of smoking.

    I have has success with e cigs as an affiliate, and not 300 bucks, but thousands per month. It is not an outdated field, if you look at trends, the industry is growing, and big tobacco has nothing to do with it yet, although they are trying to get their foot in the door.

    I have never had greensmoke beat me out of 1 dime, so it really makes me wonder if you were not axed for violations of their affiliate TOS. There are a few that will beat you out of money, but they are not major names in the industry that are stealing commissions.

    I have been in the industry for over 2 years and i am still seeing growth as an affiliate.

    Green smoke has a pretty good reputation - lots of people do business with them.

    Kind of a hidden gem I've been making good money with is SmokeFrii.com. Their pages aren't as "salesy" - but they've had much higher reorders than my other e-cig companies, and I like that residual.

    Dont touch Njoy. These people are vultures. If you say the wrong thing in your ad/sitecopy they will terminate your affiliate account and threaten you with a lawsuit. These people have been in and out of court and the FDA has been on top of them. Njoy sucks. No pun intended.

    I have been an affiliate with green smoke for about 3 years now. They have always paid me and paid me on time except once, which was like 2 years ago. I think they have one of the better back offices where you can do a lot of things with. I would give them an A :)

    e-cigs are tough now because they got government regulated, and found out that they weren't good for you. Def booming product a couple of years ago

    I disagree gentleman. I'm still very active in the e-cig space and if your willing to ship into areas like Australia and Canada you can still do very well...

    Shoot me a PM if you want to discuss. I import direct and my affiliate payout is 20% on the lowest priced e-cigs on the web. High conversions, especially going into the holidays!

    I can't PM yet but I did sign up and want to see what you have available. I'm an affiliate vet, my app should stand out if you see it soon. Thanks!

    Thank you rinksrat - if you or anyone else could answer our question please: My husband and I are looking to start a campaign with ecigs, possibly Green Smoke.

    Can you explain what method you used? We're confused on whether we are allowed to use a PPC campaign. Thanks! :p
