    Smile CPA Ranges for Vitamin Supplements
    Hey guys,

    new to this forum and to the affiliate game in general, so be gentle

    I have blog about healthy nutrition that's starting to somewhat take off, and I'd like to start making a commission when people buy supplements I recommend.

    1. What can I expect in terms of CPA ranges and absolute commissions per sale/

    2. How is my commission calculated for autoship sales and subscriptions?

    Any help, especially specific examples would be very much appreciated

    Cheers, Nik

    Have you joined any programs yet..? You will see commission rates & cookie durations clearly listed before you apply to merchants.

    Not sure I understand this question - you won't be shipping anything. Same answer as above - how much merchants choose to compensate affiliates for sales is something you need to review on a case by case basis.

    Hi Teezone, thanks for the quick reply.

    Unfortunately affiliate networks never seem to mention average sale price. Without that, its hard to estimate my commission. Do you know what rough range of absolute commission per sale this category is in?

    Let me clarify my second question. By autoship sales / subscriptions I mean products like VitaminID from Nature Made. Customers sign up for a product that gets automatically shipped to them every month and they are charged every month, without having to make another purchase.

    Do you know how that's usually compensated for affiliates?

    Thanks!

    You need to ask the affiliate manager for those programs, there are no benchmarks for AOV or continuity programs. You can look at Offer Vault to see what different CPA programs are offering for those types of products.

    Some companies will list an average sale price, but it is mostly just an estimate. It's helpful to research and be very familiar with the company before joining their affiliate program. Look for companies that have high priced items in their online store to ensure higher commissions if they offer quality products.
