I am planning to start/join affiliate program but not sure how should i go about. I am not sure how much percentage of affiliate sharing is profitable?
The average affiliate program will pay commissions in the 10-30% of the sale range depending on your margins. Affiliates are concerned with the commissions, but are also concerned with how well your website will convert the traffic that affiliates send to it. If you have a strong conversion rate and a good commission rate, that is usually a good formula for a well-performing affiliate channel.
