    Make sure you are familiar with the laws as well. When people make $600/year (I am pretty sure this is correct, you will want to double check) you have to get them to sign a 1099,,,,you need to know about paying people in foreign countries,,,,making sure they are not spamming,,,,making sure your merchants allow sub agreements and subaffiliates,,,,,Make sure you are not letting one of your affiliates push a merchant whose program they had origionally been thrown out of or banned from for various reasons,,,,,make sure they are not using various types of marketing which are banned by the merchant so you do not get booted from that program,,,,,etc....

    Just a quick FYI. =0)

    If your running it in-house through a hosted shopping cart consider www.Volusion.com as then you'll have Google Checkout -PayPal and Google Analytics support. The cart has affiliate sales mgmt built-in.

    I echo Haiko's recommendation. If you are going with a self hosted software application Groundbreak is good - I think you need to be running on a *nix server though.

    Once you have things tested and know how your site performs (and it's performing to industry average or better) I'd look at Shareasale.

    I think you'll always do better with a network solution and SAS is tops in terms of affiliate friendliness, industry rep and support.

    I might even start there. It can be pretty tough to find good affiliates who'll work with software solutions unless your offer is great and your conversion is a lead pipe cinch.

    Do you have a budget in mind?

    Can you give us a feel as far as what the structure of your program will be? How many products do you offer? Do you plan on offering affiliates datafeeds?

    What are your reasons for wanting to go software insted of ntwork on this program? A ton of the affiliates on this board will be happy to stand up and tell you why they'd love you to be on SAS

    Take care,
    Wade
