    Arts and Crafts
    I would say that the Arts and Crafts niche falls within the Home and Garden bigger category. I would love to find online merchants in this category. I am aware and already joined Michael's, Fabric.com, Joann and many more from CJ. Any other merchants out there in other affiliate networks?
    Shops with supplies for jewelry making, paper crafts, scrapbooking, sewing, quilting, knitting etc would be awesome.

    Thank you!

    Discount school supplies on CJ has art and dome craft supplies. They are, of course, targeting the schools market.

    Their only "red flag" is that they pay a higher commission to the "parasites" than they do to real content affiliates.

    Thank you Bill, I will check them out although I have the feeling they do not target our niche really.

    I've had other craft-oriented affiliates like the CafePress program because it allows them to express their creativity onto items they might not normally be able to access or in ways that require more equipment than one might normally have at home.

    Just did a quick search to see what might be out there in the Affiliate Ranker. Check it.

    Interesting associated niches and levels of commission offered here. I really appreciate Cafe Press and have known a ton of folks who have employed it within their websites, as well.

    I never looked at Affiliate Ranker before, as I can recall, and after looking around there a few minutes, it appears to be totally useless. Their search results and lists are total jokes. You don't have to look beyond their list of networks, which with one exception, is full of third-tier outfits (and includes one that hasn't been around in five years), which says it all about the site.

    Agreed, Phil. I took a quick look and that Affiliate Ranker looks like crap. There is only one decent network listed and three sub-par ones. Only four networks listed in an affiliate advice directory? That, alone, says a lot about the worth of the site. And I could not even find a Privacy Policy. I will stay far away from that one.

    Oops, I overlooked mentioning Cafe Press. I've been a "shopkeeper" there for many years and an affiliate (via CJ) for a couple years. I never have promoted them widely but they do have some really cool niche items (I have one for our main beach site that sells well.)

    Problem with C/P is that they may be having some financial problems. ('nuff said)

    Amazon is awesome, we are in already
    Also we are based in Europe and that means we have no NEXUS related problems. That being said how would NEXUS be a problem in a sub-affiliate model? Taking in account that the end blogger gets payed by us and not from Amazon let's say, even if she lived in California?

    I will check out Cafe Press. I'll also take a look at Affiliate Ranker just because I am curious after all the comments!

    Most real craft stores I could find after searching about 10 affiliate networks were in SAS (I guess one enters and the rest follow). Plus big names such as Michael's and Joann in CJ. And there is also Walmart in LinkShare... but they are hard!
    Now I am after Etsy, but it seems they are using PHG, we got accepted for their .uk branch ...not so useful since 86% of our user database is located in US and Canada. PHG is so different from the rest of the networks. Can't figure out how to deep link....

    All set! Looks like you have an incredible tool for crafters and I definitely look forward to working with you all.

    I definitely encourage other ABW etailers in this field will connect with you. Basically, Vicky's tool enables crafters to easily deeplink to and generate a simple storefront of supplies they use in their tutorials and projects. It's beautifully done.

    Hi, have you tried Zazzle? I have a store there called Rustic Harbor and from what I gather, it seems a lot of merchants have moved from CafePress to Zazzle.

    Don't forget reading glasses in that demographic. Peepers Reading Glasses in ShareASale converts highly for arts and craft sites.
