How to track affiliate earnings from multiple affiliate networks

Income from multiple affiliate networks

If you work with affiliates you will be used to the fact that there are hundreds and thousands of networks out there and if you want to be offering a wide range of products or services, it’s unavoidable that you will end up working with many of them! Tracking sales, keeping on top of performance, these tasks all become much more complex when you are dealing with lots and lots of different affiliate networks.

You might decide to compromise and solve this by keeping the number of networks you work with to a minimum – after all, logging into AWIN, Commission Junction, Amazon and Tradedoubler as a minimum every day just to keep track of your income is already taking enough of your time as it is. Or, you might have the assistance of a fancy spreadsheet that does at least some of the work for you – however, none of these solutions are ideal.
