Customer support is the best in the industry, an example. I was having an small issue with one of the programs this morning. I wrote a quick email explaining the problem and within an hour the problem was fixed and I received an email letting me know it had been resolved.
Share A Sale Interface
If you’re new to affiliate marketing it’s possible to feel a bit overwhelmed with Share A Sale not due to any lack on their part or that the system is difficult to use but instead because of how much is available to you. If you’re like me and want to jump in with both feet. You’ll gain a collage level understanding of affiliate marketing but be prepared to spend some time studying.
Some say ShareASale is not for beginners because it’s so involved but personally I wound rather have way too much information and tools than too little.
Requirements for publishers to Join
Share A Sale is available in multiple countries around the world. Members of ShareASale must have a valid website and a valid email address at the domain level. If you do not have an email address through your domain you will be given access to a unique code that you can place on your website to verify ownership. This code will be verified within 24 hours and can then be removed this is how I verified Pennyroll.com
Although you’ll have the opportunity to market products via email they have a strict policy against spam and ad-ware is forbidden. This is one of the reasons they’ve been able to maintain a good reputation
