Wondering what is the best affiliate software for your Shopify store?
That answer depends on your needs and your budget. Obviously an e-commerce store that requires an enterprise level solution would not benefit from an app geared towards small businesses, and vice-versa. You’ll want to choose an app that satisfies your needs today while also thinking about the immediate future. Switching affiliate software after you’ve already built a large affiliate base is a pain. Sometimes it’s unavoidable, but it’s not something you want to plan on doing. It’s best to begin with a software that you can grow with in the foreseeable future.
Additionally, every Shopify affiliate software I've reviewed on this site differs in regards to their features, pricing structure, and availability of support. Are you switching from one affiliate software to another and need to import your current affiliate accounts? Do you know any coding or do you need a software that offers one-click installation? Would you like to be able to track affiliate sales by discount code? How about QR code? Is your store going to offer your affiliates recurring commissions on subscriptions? Will you offer a flat percentage commission on all products or would you like the ability to set the commissions per SKU? Or how about the ability to offer higher commissions for your super affiliates? Will you pay your affiliates via PayPal, Check, bank transfer, or via another merchant processor? Or how about paying them via Gift Card to your store? Would you like to reward your affiliates for things other than product purchases, like visitor sign-ups or other actionable triggers?
Those sample questions are a small glimpse at the options that differ from one software to another. Which is why it's so important to do your research and due diligence before launching your affiliate program.
