Will 20% of my product's cost be attractive enough for affiliates?

    I've never offered my products up to affiliates before but I now think it might be a good route to go down.

    My physical product (a consumable in the healthy food niche) is split into three variants of different sizes, and sell for: $7.60, $14 and $16.60

    If I offered to give affiliates 20% for each sale they get me, do you think this will be enough to attract them? Or will I have to offer more, in your opinion?

    Also, could you recommend any services where I can sign my product up to in order to get affiliates?

    Help a newb out please, thanks!

    20% for a digital product? Not in a chance. Never.

    How much do they earn: $2? There're bigger leads than that.

    is this a digital product? I did not see a mention of that only sizes, if its a digital product then yeah there is no way someone is going to promote for such a small cut, there are many offers on cb and other sites as much as 75% so good luck with 20%

    That said if this is a physical product that requires shipping and production 20% could be fair depending on how easy it is to sell. you should try shareasale it costs about $1000 to get properly set up on there though so it all depends on your budget

    Sorry I should have mentioned, it is a consumable in the healthy food niche. My business is still small so £1000 to set something up is too much unfortunately.

    I could offer them $5 per sale, would that be good? The only affiliate service I've heard of is Clickbank so do you think that would be a good option for me?

    sadly that is for digital products so no. your best bet is to post on facebook groups in your niche letting people know you have created an affiliate division for your company and are looking for affiliates. there are plenty of pages and groups in that niche. i hope you are able to find people who are interested in it

    It depends on how easy or difficult your product sells

    20% is decent for a physical products but you should go with an established platform like shareasale. You will have a very hard time getting affiliates if you try to go it alone.
