Free Affiliate Marketing Software

Website Services Magazine Cites Two Free Affiliate Software Programs

I've been researching DirectTrack and MyAffiliate Program for a lead generation tracking solution. Both have functionality I'm looking for but the setup fees are high for a small affiliate program. Directtrack is $1k and MAP is over $2k plus monthly fees.

The reason most businesses don't get affiliate software is because affiliates trust 3rd party solutions. Plus it's easiest when affiliates can manage and view stats for most of their programs in one place. That's why most choose Commission Junction. However, if you are a smaller program without a brand name this is too costly.

Here are the two free affiliate tracking software packages mentioned:

AffPlanet Free – for up to 3,000 transactions per month. Supports multiple commission structures.

AffiliateClick – real-time stats, email motifications, and % or flat rate commissions.

Does anyone have experience with these programs? Have you customized them or used them out of the box? Please comment.
