    Hi
    I have a website selling a physical product that myself and business partner make.I have thought of offering it out to affiliates, but am new to this, so not really sure on viability, effectiveness, suitability etc. the site uses OpenCart and has the standard affiliate modulethe item retails at £22 and i sell with free worldwide shipping.What do i need to do to make it available to affiliates and would there be enough interest to make it worthwhile? Cheers

    Whether there would be enough intrest is not something we can answer you without having seen the product. Theoretically it is possible, physical prodcuts can sell quite well, so affiliates might be interested. The question rly is what the product is, how much of a margin you are willing to offer the affiliates etc.

    Without those information its impossible to give you any kind of real advice.

    hi, these are wristwatches with our own design of faces, there is enough to offer 10%, maybe 15% ... i didn't know if it was ok to post the web address here, so went on the side of caution :)

    Honestly, 10% to 15% is a bit small when the sales prices is 22 pounds. If your product was something that is really hot right now people would properly advertise it but the chance that they will advertise it just like this would be quite small imo. You would have to come up with some really good marketing and I mean marketing to affiliates to get them to promote it which properly would cost too much for you.
