    I Love Widgets!
    I haven't been with ShareASale very long, but I really like the widgets. Is there an ability to make your own custom widgets per advertiser?

    Edit: Don't know why I didn't see this a few minutes ago.

    Make A Widget

    Confused now. The Make A Widget tool doesn't seem to be listed on my SAS menu at the top.

    The Widget maker is for the merchants. Hopefully, SAS will figure out a way for affiliates to use it.

    Ooof, that explains it then. It would be quite handy for affiliates.

    Not meaning to hijack or misguide this thread in any way, BUT -- many SAS merchants are available through PopShops.com, and the "shops" you make with them work as pretty effective widgets in many ways.

    Popshops has a forum here, you might want to check it out.

    That may be true, but the affiliate has to pay for subscriptions to Popshops, whereas the Widgets are a free tool within SAS.

    HOWEVER, they have a "basic" option which is free and allows you to make up to 10 shops/widgets with a variety of sizes, formatting options, etc. And their cheapest paid plan give you a ton of stuff for a very low price.

    But, hey, forgive me for sounding like a "popshops evangelist" or something. Not my intent.

    Some of the best tools require a cash outlay. We can do much through the Shareasale interface, but can't be all things to all people. I wanted something like PopShops YEARS ago and would have gladly paid for it back then too.

    Widgets are great, but they are merchant specific. PopShops allows cross merchant "widget making" in a sense.

    They are both VERY useful tools

    This looks like another network that merchants have to join to submit ads too. The "ad pods" loaded pretty slowly on their own site as well, would worry me about load times on affiliate sites if we ran "offers" with them.

    Speaking of cross merchant capabilities, make-a-page used to have cross merchant capabilities. I miss the cross-merchant flexibility of the make-a-page I experienced upon initially joining SAS, my suggestion is to bring back the cross-merchant capabilities of make-a-page.
