    I am using adultfriendfinder's affiliate program and it is pretty good. However they have 4 different types of ways you can be paid. PPC, Per free sign up, percentage and per member order. I have been using free sign up and make about $4 per sign up. However the per member order is $130. I feel like I could make more with the member order but I want to get a second opinion?

    Thanks

    I guess it depends on your traffic. Are they willing to spend?

    if you go with free signup and your traffic is not good enough, they will convert you to revshare which is not really bad either and they pay quite fairly from the members spendings
    you have different aff urls for their programs, so you can do a split test and see it for yourself, you won't see immediate results with revshare though, it takes some time while it gains its momentum, but in the long run revshare is better imho

    so you have 3 choices, send 1/3 traffic to each of them and wait to see which is better.

    You should continue with the free signups. It's easier to get people to sign-up, than it is to make a commission off of their orders. It honestly depends on the method you are using for promotion. You have to test which one works best for you. But CPA offers tend to convert better at the end of the day.

    Depends on quality of your traffic...but as said they will convert you anyway if your traffic is crap....
    Personally I prefer percentage....still getting regular payments years after on some signups
