    :question:Has anyone got suggestions for an affiliate managment system?

    For example PAP 3 from qualityunit

    I was hoping there might be a free one on BHW, as i dont have much money to spend as i am just starting out on this new site.

    There's a few listed here, not sure which ones are good/decent/poor, but it might be something worth checking out.

    Thanks, yeah i came across that link when googleing for such a sytem.
    I aready found two dead link (project has been abandoned), and two systems are worthless, and the rest i gave up on as they had no way to install it or else after it was installed it did not work properly.

    So keep the suggestions coming......

    You will be hard pressed to find a good SECURE affilaite management system. Pretty much anything you pick up, be it open source or proprietary, will be riddled with SQL injection vulnerabilities, LFI, RFI, and unsanitized upload forms. I have yet to see an affiliate program that didn't need some heavy code editing in order to prevent your entire server from being pwn3d.

    I don't know what it is about affiliate management software, but it's some of the most exploitable out there. Whatever you choose, make sure to do a thorough security test on it after you get it set up.

    Try Affiliate Pro script from Soft Service, it's professionally developed software with huge features list, and good support.

    Thanks again guy....keep these suggestions coming.
    Likewise if i choose something, i will let you know.

    I am not worried about security, i spent years doing penetration testing (ethical hacking bascially), and got a mention from US-CERT as well. So I know how to lock it down. However yes good point, it does need to be done.
