    Hi Designer, yeah we are releasing more every week. We currently have a growing log behind the scenes of programs that will go live in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.

    Are there particular merchants or offers you are after?

    Hi Spacey, we have looked into it. Sounds like it is most likely a browser related issue on your end. What web browser where you on and do you have javascript turned on?

    If anyone else has this problem, please let us know.

    Hi

    Do you have anything for health insurance?

    Used your contact form ages ago but got no response/autoreply so not sure if the form is functioning.

    hi commision factory, this is simply my view and NOTHING against you but saxie and rhythm ahve hinted at it i think?

    my website visitors want info FAST to make a decision, so just like them i want info FAST, there are many affilaiate programs out there and i went to your site and ALL i wanted to do is see what suppliers you had on board so i could say to myself " yep... they would be good for my business sectors i work in "

    i do NOT want to fill in ANOTHER form to find out that you are suited or not suited to me, so thus i don't fill out the form.

    take this as positive feedback not negative as i'm actually spending my time letting you know this which i don't normally , your involvement in dnt is the riding influence and all i want is a win win.

    your competition can just create a fake account and get all your merchants so why not just have it OUT THERE? or did i just not see that "button" ?

    all i could find is http://www.commissionfactory.com.au/Blog/category/merchants

    i'm more then happy to be wrong, all i want is to give my user experience.

    tim

    I don't think this is solely an issue with Commission Factory. I don't know any Australian affiliate network that does this. In fact, barely any of the big international ones do either.

    Not making excuses, because I'd like to see them all do it as I've signed up to plenty of these networks just to find out what they are offering.

    We currently don't have any health insurance programs, however this may should change in the not so distant future. :)

    Hi Tim,

    Thank you for taking the time to give us some feedback, it is appreciated. We are passionate about our network and value constructive feedback that we can build a better network from.

    We keep our blog updated with programs as they launch. We understand this is not quick to reference however. In terms of a public display of programs it is quite a complex topic from a seemingly simple feature. As aus11 mentioned most networks do not provide even a scrape of information in an effort to encourage affiliates to passively sign up.

    Apart from passive Affiliate recruitment there are quite a lot of unseen reasons behind it, such as compliance, application screening etc etc, for example we ask certain questions during signup that allow us to analyse our affiliate pool segmentation and recruit offers based on the affiliates categories, traffic etc etc. If Affiliates do not sign up then we would be flying blind with what offers/programs they are looking for and what our BD focus should be. We want to develop where affiliates are active as we are mindful that merchants will put greater consideration/attention behind their Affiliate Channel if they see good results.

    We are actually coming to the end of a complete front end and backend re-development. Some new features will make it easier to find programs on our network and get updates about new programs quickly. The new front end will also be more forth coming with information as to why affiliates would want to work with us as well.

    Also for those who have trouble finding affiliate programs/offers, we recommend that you search Odigger.com a lot of CPA and Affiliate networks now aggregate this offers to this directory, including us. :)
