    Good Evening Ladies and Gentlemen,

    I'm getting my claws into a rather nice Merchant in Australia, actually rather big, big enough that they will only want to work with a big NetWork with serious brands.

    Naturally I lean towards LinkShare, inspite of the fact that it means payment in $US, BUT I'd like to get your thoughts on this.

    Sorry can't at this time give you a name as it is very early doors in the negotiations.

    Cheers

    Chris

    Hmmm, speaking as an Aussie who targets the US, if I were to promote an Aussie Merchant it would not be a major focus. Therefor, CJ, with consolidated payments, would be preferrable.

    And speaking as a Brit who targets Oz then I'd suggest DGM Australia - http://www.dgmaustralia.com/.

    I guess it depends also if the merchant just ships to Oz or worldwide.

    The commission %'s are so low and the bulk of Australian internet stores are so badly made, I don't promote to the Australian market.

    In general I do prefer CJ over linkshare and I signed up for DGMAustralia but their selection was lacking, so I haven't bothered.

    I don't like the fact that LS doesn't cut consolidated checks...CJ beats most networks handsdown for dealings with Aussie affiliates, they will cut a check in A$ so I don't need to foot the A$10 administration cost fee for handling a US$ check.

    some thoughts and notes

    1. Ozzie Merchant 100% Ozzie focus
    2. E-Com Set up is clean and sweet
    3. Multiple revenue channels, easy repeat business and I think conversion would be a doddle.

    DGMAustralia, who are their top performing Merchants?

    Thanks

    Chris

    While DGM are a strong network in the UK Chris there are more powerful networks downunder.

    CommissionMonster Are the fastest growning network and are right on the ball.
    ClixGalore - Australian site Well known network and now with a .au site.

    If you are shopping around do yourself a favour and don't overlook these

    Cheers

    I'm not sure how many offer datafeeds though.

    Clixgalore is horrible to use, but it does have a pretty wide choice of merchants.
