    Rate ShareASale.com
    Based on a similar thread in the LinkShare forum, I thought it might be interesting to see how people rate SAS.

    I would also be interesting to hear people's substantiations of their choices (if possible).

    Great poll, indeed.

    I'd not go so far as rating sas 10 out of 10, there are areas where there is room for improvement, but over all shareasale gets a lot of points for ethics which gives it an edge over any other network. 8/10

    I work with three networks only, i.e SAS CJ and LS.

    I find SAS top among them.

    SAS website interface is much easier to work on, not so complicated.

    Tools provided are easy to work on and beneficial to both experience and newbie affiliates

    Most merchants that I signed up with, engage competent and reliable AM

    Mails are replied and action taken within reasonable time frame

    Have the feeling of a more closer relationship

    Having someone to monitor the ongoing talks at SAS section of this forum

    No comment about payment as I have yet to reach my minimum to get one

    I am not competance enough to stress about the technical aspect

    I rate SAS 8/10


    Thanks

    Richard

    From an AM side, based on my experience so far, a 9 out of 10. I leave the 1 just because I know there are things to improve

    I have not had much success so far with SAS, but it is not their fault. They have been uberhelpful to date.

    Does not surprise me at all.

    Interesting thing is, if you had done this prior to LMI CJ probably would have been higher. But regardless, ShareASale would still have the other ones beat, for good reason.

    I went 8 for SAS. My reasons are documented in many places on this board.

    I probably should have gone 9, but I won't give anyone a 10.

    SAS, to me, is the best network out there. They are a few big merchants away from being a 9.5.

    Well, it's no secret by looking at our merchants, 95% of our OPM business relies on SAS.

    It has enough of the bells and whistles needed to allow us to run our merchant's programs while doing a great job at keeping the "garbage out".

    "Keeping the garbage out is one of the key elements of successful afiliate program development." - those that read that statement and understand why, are in the know and are probably very successful. It is the "key" that unlocks the many other strategies to program development.

    Ditto what Andy said...

    SAS seems to offer all the necessary components of a good network (including protection the others don't seem too concerned about) without trying to bog it down with things that may sound good but just make things more complicated like the other networks do.

    Matt's comments are exactly what I would have written -- same experience.
