How much money for affiliates?

Just curious if affiliates use a revenue formula that helps them pick one merchant over another?
How much does an average merchant earn for an afilliate in a month?

You won't find many affiliates willing to share revenue info..
However you can gauge the overall conversion success of a merchant through statistics provided by the network, eg. EPC. This represents the average $ earned per 100 clicks.
Some affiliates may earn zero for that merchant, some can do so well they skew the average. Exceptions will always exist.
In some cases, a low-performing merchant can represent an opportunity.
Just recently I added a merchant with little expectation, and have been pleasantly surprised. I don't follow a formula, but I monitor stats closely. As a result, this new merchant will get higher profiling than the [supposed] performer who isn't converting well for me.
EPC aside, my initial decision is always product-based.. ie. does that merchant have the right products for my site..
Hope this helps
