    Affiliate Network
    Hi,

    I would like to know which are the scripts for managing a CPA Network. I know of DirectTrack,AlstraSoft & a few others. What I don't understand is why DT Is so expensive while most of others are below $1000.

    We will be targetting a niche, mainly outside USA.

    NO THREAD CRAPPING.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    You get what you pay for, but if you think you can start a "Network" with a script under a $1K your either dreamin or smokin something "wacky". That said, look at Linktrust.com

    LeadHound is the only other "build my own affiliate network" tool I'm aware of.

    DirectTrack has little competition in this area.

    But why build your own n/w anyway? There's some international ones you can join.

    Hadn't heard of linktrust. They don't have an affiliate/referral programme but I'll go contact them to see if they want to get listed on our site. Tx for that Haiko.

    Take a look at http://www.qualityunit.com/postaffiliatepro/, its open source and has most of the functionality you may be looking for.

    I am using jam.jrox.com/ and find it very easy to use. The reports Tools are very good and you can run more than one program on it

    Exclamation alstrasoft
    I contacted several of Alstrasoft's "network clients" over a year ago and didn't get any positive reviews and most of the sites were not done. Things may have changed.

    I'll update my review listing.

    Btw linktrust is also an option and a review added to the Affiliate-Software-Review.com database.

    I'm actually using the Affiliate Software Review not the gold version. I'm looking for a affiliate network solution besides direct track. I don't want just affiliate software. I'm not looking to use it long term just don't want to invest in DT just quite yet. Looking for something i can implement for a little less $$ commitment.

    Do they offer a network solution? From a quick glance through their site it looks like a single merchant program to me...

    Looks like a single merchant solution too, not a network one...

    ...so does the jrox thing someone else mentioned in this thread.
