  5. Hi Rajesh,

    Thanks for such a wonderful information, We are planning to start a online recharge web site, in that we planning to show/give coupon codes to the customers similar to freecharge, but we don’t find a way to get coupon codes.can you please suggest a way to get coupon codes to show in our website.


    1. Dear Arvind, first of all you have to join their affiliate programs, when you are in , join there newsletter for all type of activities, right now most of the companies send coupon code through these newsletters( emails) . That you can use on your website to promote. Another method is- write an email to these companies/websites regarding your project and call tell them- how you can have their exclusive coupon code at your website. Once you have any one method in place find out a working WordPress theme for coupon code and enjoy coming money all the way :)

    1. But my personal preference is amazon as flipkart is not mature enough for affiliates and errors so occurs in thier affiliate systems. I think it will take time to become like amazon affiliate system. Keep in touch for my new affiliate theme that is going to make a big stride in affiliate themes.

  6. Thanks for this wonderful information. I have joined most of the affiliate programs and started promoting the offers with my deals and coupons website.

  7. Dear Sir,

    Nice article. We wanted to know that as you said that “Donot promote store if you are not real user? How do we do other wise? We at Lenabechna.com are planning to introduce Coupon Store where affiliates would place coupons. It is not possible for us us to use all promo codes and check it.

    Let us know about the same


    1. First of all try to change the interface of your website. It’s frontpage does not attract me at all.The same may be with its users thus you are not getting too much traffic and the same way its purpose is also not clear from the frontEnd.Sorry but I want to really help you. Keep in touch :)

  8. Rakesh, I have one question.. how much can we earn using these affiliate programs on a Indian business directory site?. Did you tried bing ads?. Please try to provide more details about it too.

    1. Dear Helen, right now i am affiliate of many sites but to be frank i am not too much lucky with Indian affiliate programs, the second question is related to bing ads and again I have not tried bing ads at all so, I do not want to misguide you. Keep in touch

  9. Nice article, i prefer Flipkart as it is very much on tongue for online buyers. Amazon is a good option to with high pays but in India Flipkart is best.

  10. Yes ! I prefer Yepme because yepme is the best self manufacturing e-commerce site among all. Yepme gives more importance to quality so I prefer YEPME

  11. Flipkart Sucks these days. Since last 1 year I was affiliating Flipkart products. Sometimes they don’t even pay for legit sales. Amazon was really a great option to choose and I did the same. I found Amazon Affiliate Better then Flipkart.

    1. We all bloggers should write about the system, how flipkart sucks, and should avoid promoting them. At least this way we bloggers can teach them a good lessons.

  12. Hello Rakesh,

    I am totally new to affiliate marketing. Can anyone tell me how do OMG India and tyroo track our trasaction if I am owing any coupon related website. Do I need to manually give tracking code in every link? or they will just give me one code which I need to put on my website just like Google Analytics?

    Waiting for reply.

    Thank you,
    Ajay Dumasiya

  13. Hi again,
    I am wondering if I cloak an affiliate link with my website url and post the website URL around on social media; would this work if users follow my cloaked links and make the purchase? It is allowed?
    e.g http:// somecompany.com/their-product?uid=09801234&afid=asbajaj001
    This url is cloaked with my website url like http:// mywebsiteurl.com/cloakedproductlink/

    1. It is 100% allowed method, Most internet marketing guru use this method. But before that you have to create a lots of user base in all these social networking sites. Keep in touch aditya ;)

  16. Nice post. was thinking to know about Indian affiliate programs got here . many international affiliate programs wont work for indians

    1. Thanks abhishek for this update, i think my dears would love to know these new affiliate network.

  17. Shaadi.com affiliate program do NOT pay anything for a free profile so please make the necessary correction. You can check this on their website also – shaadi.com/shaadi-rewards/index.php

    1. actually they were paying Rs.30 for each free profile but if they have reduced this price now, then i do not know. Thanks for this update Chandan.

    2. Shaadi.com hasn’t reduced rates for free profiles but eradicated any payment for free profile altogather.

    3. I have used this shaadi affiliate program for almost 3years. But as they wer not paying any amount for free profiles, stopped running these campaigns.

  18. Hi Rakesh,
    Excellent work and I immediately applied for India Indiamart.com affiliation program after reading your post. Actually my blog is related to companies/directory. I would love to hear complete review about indiamart affiliation program.
    Good work… keep it up.

  19. Please Suggest me some top affiliate network providing coupons and deals for online retailers…I want to start my coupon website..

  20. Hi Rakesh,

    Awesome article. My concern is how do you keep track of different affiliates you have signed up for? Is there some dashboard kind of thing that would help you understand the total sales happened from different affiliate programs you have signed up for?
    I have always been relying on google ads, but realizing that it is very slow! I need to add multiple sources to it.

    1. WhenEver you apply to join any affiliate program, Every website will give you a user ID and password, Using that user ID and password you can login into your affiliate dashboard. From that dashboard, you can furher track down the response of your campaign. So if you have signed for 10 affiliate programs, then you have to have 10 IDs and 10 Passwords. Right now i do not know any system using that we can track the earnings of all the affiliate froma single dashboard.

      If you want to improve your adsense earning then i would suggest you to use adsense optimized wordpress themes for your blog. right now your theme is not adsense optimized, thus you are not able to earn.

    2. Thanks for this valuable suggestion Rakesh! I will look into both the affiliate links and adsense optimized theme.

  21. Hey really a nice post. that what i m looking for.

Recently i started my website tried chitika ad platform,it didn’t work for me.I opted out.Should i wait a few more months and apply for Google ad sense or try any other affiliates or ad networks to generate some income for my content.I need some revenue to pay for my domain and other things.I know its too early,My website is just 2 months old.Your suggestions and inputs will be helpful for me. Thanks.

  25. Very informative… certainly helpful for Indian bloggers and webmasters who want to monetize their website

    1. Though there are a lots of new and old affiliate programs in india, All of them wants a regular loyal readers of your website/blog. Otherwise, i am afraid you are not going to make even a single penny from all of them.

  26. RAkesh,

    It is a very nice article about the best affiliate programs in India. It is true that Indians are now trying to earn money from internet. Have a look at my blogs below.

    1. Though You are not spmmaer but the way you invited on your blog will attract a lots of web-masters and they will mark you as spammer at first sight. I think you must read my blog post on “7 commenting tricks”. Hope you will not take it otherwise and treat me a bro ;)

    1. Dear Rajendra Reddy, It is very good source of earning when you have a very good loyal reader bases, otherwise all your efforts will bring frustration to you. Hope you will listen to me seriously and before joining any affiliate program, will try to increase your reader base. ~rakesh kumar

    1. Agreed Vikas, Even i fully agreed now a days every second website is trying to create its own affiliate, so that they create a lots of free marketeers as well as a new base for its customers. Very soon, i will fully rewrite this article to woo my readers. Thanks a lot for your valuable feedback. ~rakesh kumar

  28. Hello friends,

    I have worked with most of the network listed above but I have found some problems with all networks. Some are paying so late while some have very low payout. I like to run CPC campaigns but most of the above networks do not have CPC.

    I am now working with Adstic Media network which is a new network and it is so nice. I was very impressed by the first look of their website.

    Guys the payments are really fast and CPC rate for many campaigns are good around Rs 2 – Rs 6. I can run any campaign on CPC no matter it is a cpl campaign. the support is very nice, you can call and ask anything.

    their office is near my home in Chirag Delhi, they are located in Saket, New Delhi which is near to my home. I am happy with this network now.

I recently worked with Dashcoat Network(dashcoat.com) they seems to meet this criteria. Only one problem is they are very hard in approving your site. They need a website like google adsense network needs.
