    I'm close to launching an in-house affiliate campaign to sell our product. It's a $35 physical product and we want to offer 25% commission. It's a great product and unlike the few other in its category because it actually works (hangover cure).

    My question is, is it better to try and seek out a few good affiliates and basically give them exclusivity on the product or just sign up any and everyone?

    What are the Pros/Cons of each?

    Our payment processor is Paypal and we would be paying the affiliates through paypal.

    Affiliates = Fraud ... so managing your own program can be hard.

    You gotta remember that their are people who have way more knowledge and resources than any one of us - who's sole purpose is to exploit anything and everything - via VCC / Stolen CC and other means.

    So just be careful with it - and what affiliates you do accept.

    What about using risk prevention software? Something like Riskified that's offered for Shopify stores, it's chargeback insurance

    Hangover is incurable because it's an intoxication. You don't cure intoxication, you simply detox. Detoxing takes 24 to 48 hours.

    The only cure for hangover is to mask the intoxication effects: painkiller and water is all you can do until all the ethil methanol is gone from your body.

    Not with our product. It's actually an alcohol metabolizer that helps you process the alcohol and sobers you up twice as fast as your body's natural rate. So you never get a hangover because you are sober. We're clinically proven with multiple medical studies. As long as you don't blackout, it works.

    We just had MTV's guy code do a whole segment on us where they all drank like fish and reviewed the product. And it worked as advertised.
