    We are thinking about switching from CJ to our internal affiliate program that will run on Post Affiliate Pro. However, some people told me that there are some issues with tracking in Post Affiliate Pro. To me it seems just as a non-sense.

    Did any one of you encounter a problem with PAP?

    Thank you :)

    Good on you for moving your program in-house. In terms of PAP I don't even know where to start lol. :p I've used it tons in the past but now I will no longer touch it with a 10 foot pole. It's old school tracking tech and severely out dated by 2013-2014 standards. It's basically the poor man's affiliate marketing solution, and even then that's only of you host it yourself which I don't recommend as it's a massive headache and you basically internal devs on call to h+ck up their ole school POS software.

    Personally I stick with SaaS based solutions now for my in-house as in my experience they provide vastly superior ROI (and no not PAPs saas offering its just as bad as their self hosted - same junk).

    Depends on your budget really. I know some really good saas based solutions that use modern tracking tech and for any budget. Heck I even know of some good free ones that demolish PAP (if you fall within the pack quotas).

    Im with a number of affiliate programs that use the PAP system. I swear, either they are shaving the hell out of me or that PAP system is a total piece of shit.
