    So I intern at this small business company over the summer that sells a specific type of tupperware supplies. A lot of business and sales come from "Roadshows" at different store locations by salesmen who present the tupperware to people as their just walking by.

    Recently however, the company is thinking about getting in the internet business a little more. Their offer for an affiliate program would most likely be a 4 or 5 dollar commission for every "set" sold (the tupperware is sold in sets). Each set costs roughly around 20-25 dollars. What I'm wondering is if that's a good standard offer for publishers? Should the commission price be higher or lower or what?

    Thanks

    As an affiliate I could see myself selling for $5 a set, many wouldn't. There are a lot of variables that should be tested. Amazon would say 4%, but amazon (hey, there an option for you) is huge and has selling power. Its hard to motivate affiliates for less. I would look for similar products and see what they pay. Remember these things are always adjustable.

    Yeah, but I'm guessing because we are more of a small business we wouldn't be hiring THAT many publishers. Quite an income can be made from the internet, I'm just not sure how many people on BHW could utilize such a specific type of product however
