Choosing An Affiliate Management Script

by Martin Russell on January 7, 2012



An effective affiliate program is a way for other people to help you sell your products in exchange for a commission whenever a sale was consummated. By signing up as affiliates, they will promote your products through a number of ways, like promoting them on their websites or by creating ads of your products.

The backbone of this affiliate program is an affiliate management script that is hosted in your web server.

Since other people are investing time and energy in helping you out, you need to have a reliable script that can perform what is expected from it.

Jrox, iDev, and Rapid Action Profits are three of the most popular affiliate management scripts around. To help you make the best choice for your needs, here’s a comparison chart showing their features and cost.
