There is a lot of potential other niches (e.g. Career portals, Archies gifts/cards) to start their own affiliate programs but many of them after initial experiments and/or failed campaigns have closed down – for example, had an affiliate program till last year but it doesn’t seem to exist any longer. You may also recall that the eBay India partner program was discontinued in India sometime back.

Top affiliate networks in India

When it comes to affiliate networks in India, there aren’t many that provide huge number of products to market. As of today Clix Galore and DGM India are the leading ones while a few others have closed down. Also, none of the affiliate networks or programs in India offer a multi-tier affiliate programs and that is not good for people like me.

Some of the ad networks in India (e.g. Komli, Tyroo) are focusing more on direct ad campaigns for brands rather than passing the bounty to affiliates who could promote it. Hopefully this trend will change soon.


Please note that though I have signed up with most of the programs mentioned above, I am actively marketing only one or two of them. Based on my experiences, I shall probably write individual reviews about them later. At the moment, my campaign expenses are on the higher side as compared to the commission received from these programs. However, generic websites with huge traffic must be earning a lot out of these affiliate programs that are India specific.

Happy money making!
