If this thread is seen as spam, you can delete it. It's not my intention... I wont provide any links, I'm just asking for advice. I recently started my own affiliate network selling SEO services, affiliate services, etc... I'm not asking anyone to sign up for it yet because I don't have any products listed. I do however want some feedback from people who have started their own networks in the past, and maybe some best practices or advice. Here's how I have it set up right now: Wordpress site w/ Affiliate Platform Magic Members Shopping Cart I plan on adding a bunch of digital products and services and giving my affiliates 50% commissions on everything, with a 2-tier setup where the second tier affiliate gets 10% of the referral members leads and sales. My question is this: Do you think I have the incentives set too high? Once I start with my PPC campaigns, do you think that I'm cutting my margins too low? The average product will range between $15-30. I'll be paying members through paypal, and I heard that paypal is known to ban accounts that are used for affiliate payments, is that true? If you want to give me some feedback, PM me and I'll give you the link to my site. I didn't want to post the link for fear of getting banned.
