    If you want clicks, pay per click. If you want sales, pay per sale.

    Don't make it too complicated. Offer to your affiliate clear and easy commission model. Try to start with e.g. pay per sale - it is safer as PPC model at the beginning, because you don't know how much you can pay per click at the beginning.

    After few weeks you will know how much you can pay per click from affiliate software statistic

    Maybe, I just want to be more attractive for new affiliates and promote them to put our links or banners on others sites.
    Our site is new and hungering for some new affiliates very much.

    Even if your site is new, you don't need to implement all types of commissions.

    Affiliates will like your affiliate program, if they will get periodically ANY type of commission in your affiliate program.

    Be sure, that in first step affiliates will trust in your affiliate program:
    - use software, with reliable and accurate tracking
    - define good cookie life time
    - prepare attractive promo materials
    - offer signup bonus
    - define low payout limits, don't delay payouts
    - care about conversion rate of your website, where affiliates will send traffic

    If you will really care about success of your affiliates, your aff. program will grow for sure - viral marketing between affiliates is strong :-)

    Signup bonus, it's a good idea. But the things related to conversion rate depends on the working of the operating department. May be I can make some suggestion to them. It's not my own site. And the relationship between operating department and Marketing Department is always not easy. hehe....
