    Question Best tracking solution for independent affiliate programs?
    Just wondering if anybody had experience of independent affiliate tracking solutions. There's countless ones out there, but not many that have features we're looking for such as the ability to pay recurring lifetime commissions, forms of tracking other than through cookies, second-tier payments - and also provide great support.

    Must have researched over a hundred and short-listed AllAffiliatePro.com, DirectTrack, AffiliateTracking.com, JRox.com, Affiliate Trail and a couple of others. Any opinions on these?

    Any other robust, top quality scripts that people would recommend?

    Cheers.

    We are down to three finalists for our particular needs: All Affiliate Pro, DirectTrack and iDevAffiliates.

    Anybody had experience of using one or other of these packages? What did you think of it?

    Thank you

    These are a wide range of solutions - 2 are scripts and 1 is a mega package for building affiliate networks. What did you pick?

    We selected DirectTrack in the end, even though they are by far the most expensive. Their level of support and features beats the other scripts. Also their cross syndication feature will allow our program to be listed on many DT networks, which will hopefully attract more affiliates to our program.

    Yes, DT is often used to run fully-fledged networks, but there are versions for merchants if you check their site.

    P.S. Didn't realise you were the person behind Affiliate Software Review. I'd just like to say your resource was tremendously helpful - spent many days using it to filter down to the most relevant software solutions. Would highly recommend it to anybody.

    Let us know how that works for you.

    There are tons of really bad DT-based networks out there. I would be interested in hearing how much transparency the cross syndication provides. My suspicion is that it makes it very easy for bad players to hide in other networks, hop from network to network, etc.
