    I'm about to launch an affiliate program for a physical item I sell. I think I can offer about 25% commission and still keep enough profit to stay in business.

    What do you think is more important to affiliates?

    Give them the entire 25% commission?

    or,

    Make it 2 tier with 20% commission and 5% overrides?

    I am also going to give monthly bonuses if an affiliate sells a certain amount.

    The item sells for about $20 and has a very wide appeal.

    I would say 25% commission. I would rather get my money all up front. If it is appealing like you say you shouldn't have any problem getting affiliates.
