Auction Site Affiliate Programs

One group of affiliate programs that you may not have considered are the affiliate programs for auction sites. Right now many of the best known auction sites also have affiliate programs. And if you sell on any of these sites and have your own website why not make money by also promoting the website and web communities that you sell on?

One of the first and longest running affiliate program around is Amazon. Now I know that most people do not think of Amazon as an auction site, but they have auctions, zshops and a way of selling called market place that allows people to sell on Amazon. So if you are an Amazon seller it might be wise to also be an Amazon Associate (their term for an affiliate). All tracking and statistics are handled via Amazons Affiliate web site, where they have forums and resources that allow you to create links to be placed on your web site.

You can get more information by going to the Amazon's Join Associates page.

Sell your item at eBay!
Next in line is eBay. The eBay affiliate programis administered through Commission Junction, an affiliate network. By going to one of the forums that I have linked on the sidebar on the right you can read what other affiliates have to say about Commission Junction and other Affiliate Networks.
