    I have an ecommerce dropshipping website hosted with bigcommerce that sells hat. I have got a guy who is interested in marketing my products if I got an affiliate program going. Is there a certain software that allows one to start an affiliate program in a jiffy? I am looking at this as a long term thing because I had a similar offer earlier as well. So, I am planning to try it. Any prior experience you have with any affiliate program software/tool/website?

    Anyone? Thanks in advance!

    I have been looking into this for my own website too. One solution that seems like the best to me is http://www.osiaffiliate.com/. I have not signed up yet though as I was hoping to find something cheaper still... :(

    You could run some kind of private low scale program with some really primitive custom coded tracking.

    There is also the fully hosted hasoffers.com.

    Grace do you use it yourself? I have been thinking about it for months since I think I can really boost online sales with a program for my ecommerce site. The only problem after signing up is finding people that will join my program to promote my products :)
