    Hello,

    Our store have been open for about 5 months, we sell Handmade jewelry and we have had a few sales. We've grown a lot but I feel like if we started a affiliate program we could sell even more. We have a good margin on the price so I was thinking a 25% commission.

    So my question is: Is this a good commission? What's the best way to attract sellers?

    The first step to attract sellers is to have them trust you. If I don't see a decent amount of posts about a program I won't go near it because most of the time it's usually a scam.

    Thank you! I didn't think of that. Maybe I should personally contact people about it? What do you think is the best way to create posts about it? :)

    Totally decent commission and a good niche. I would write up your program details and run a PPC campaign specifically for jewelry affiliates.

    Thanks for the input. Started setting it up now and looking at other affiliate programs :)
    Does 25% commission for starter and 50% for experienced affiliates (who have a lot of sales) sound good?

    You can withdraw affiliation from AdWords.

    A commission of 75% far offered by clickbank.

    If only 25% are very few people signed up, unless you add the AdWords advertising and marketing via email

    You need a $ 100 monthly fee on top of your affiliate website for advertising

    If its handmade I'd suggest bagging the affiliate search and put it on the large marketplaces such as Etsy or Amazon. Amazon just launched a handmade etsy type store.
