    Viglink VS Skimlinks
    I'd love to hear what everybody thinks about these programs. I use both on my blog (url removed) because Viglink lists certain merchants as "Restricted" whereas Skimlinks gives me access. Viglink has more merchants though... what do you think?

    I've worked with both and still prefer Skimlinks for their APIs access.

    Are you looking at this from the affiliate POV? Merchant/OPM POV or both?

    Problem about Viglink Policy

    Accepts Traffic From These Locations
    Viglink allows merchants to limit "affiliate or not affiliate" for different country Viglink traffic.
    The problem happens because merchants' Viglink geo filter setting does not match their overseas shipping policy.

    Under the current system , affiliates can lose transactions unchecked for commission .
    For examples, the merchant offers international shipping, but accept viglink traffic from only US,
    the merchant still get ALL FREE viglink traffic from affiliate, but the merchant no need to pay affiliate if it is non-US purchase.

    Many shoppers from non-US use US address third party to shop online now,
    and they will not be count because the order is from non-US locations .

    And I saw cases "Accept Traffic from US, Canada, Mexico, UK"
    but the merchant clearly states they can only deliver to US address only , not Canada, not Mexico, not UK.

    Viglink is not a banner network pay by ad view ,
    Viglink is using affiliate marketing , pay by actual shopper's transaction .
    Geo filtering make the merchants in advantage for FREE TRAFFIC without the need to pay for the affiliates.

    Sign up their affiliate program directly from the affiliate network they use and get paid for all traffic.
