    Really want to sign up to Shareasale but...
    We are a studio that runs few coupon sites [edit]
    Many store owners on shareasale invite us to join their affiliate program and promote their site, but we are not able to register since "China" can not be found at the location list.

    Do you guys have any idea about how to sign up to shareasale.com as a Chinese studio?

    This is an oft-repeated question, and unfortunately the answer has always been that due to incredibly high fraud rates for registrants from certain countries (primarily Asia and Eastern Europe), most networks exclude publishers from those countries.

    I wrote about this in post #5 in this 2009 discusson thread: Why Aren't CPA networks accepting people from India? (Nov. 2009)

    I do NOT speak for ShareASale, but one way you may consider is if you have a particular merchant in mind.

    If they will vouch for you, ShareASale may approve you for that program only. Then you can prove yourself with them.

    If you prove yourself, then you can ask permission to sign-up for other programs on a case-by-case basis. After you prove yourself with 2-3 merchants, I am sure they would allow you to join freely.

    Just a though and keep in mind I am not guaranteeing this will work, but it's worth a try

    I wish you success!

    Just sent an email to them again with some invitation letters from their merchants. Hopfully, I can get admitted this time.

    I really appreciate your suggestions

    Normally if a company has a policy to not accept a specific group based on location or whatever, that's it. The decision is final. End of story.

    I would just like to say that I find it refreshing to see companies like ShareASale offer to at least review something that is outside the normal 'comfort zone.' Who knows what will come of it, but at least this guy now has a CHANCE to get in.
