RegNow(Review prepared August 2005)
The RegNow service allows authors of shareware software to easily sell their products online. One of the features that RegNow offers is the ability for these authors to run a pay-per-sale affiliate program, paying up to 75% commission on sales (of course, many RegNow publishers offer lower percentage commissions than 75%).
If you have a web site, you also have the option of joining RegNow as an affiliate, in which case you earn commissions by helping sell these software products. After you join as an affiliate, you can use the search tools to find which products you want to affiliate to (and there are thousands to choose from, including many niche products), and retrieve affiliate linking codes. Your affiliate commissions across all the products you sell are combined, and paid by RegNow.
Furthermore, in addition to the affiliate commissions offered by the vendor, RegNow also pays up to an additional 2.5% bonus (the "rewards system") based on sales, length of affiliate service, etc.
RegNow also very powerful reporting and tracking tools (the tracking tools are excellent if you plan to advertise on pay per click search engines or Google AdWords), as well as a datafeed feature.
One issue with RegNow (also found in some other similar affiliate programs such as ClickBank), is that you only earn commission on sales that their vendors make thru RegNow, and some of the vendors may offer customers alternative methods of payments. RegNow has cleverly addressed this problem in two ways:
RegNow also offers a fairly limited two tier program. If you refer an affiliate, you earn 5% of the commissions that they make in their first 90 days as an affiliate. I say this is limited, because 5% of a typical commission is not much (5% of 50% commission is only 2.5% of the sales price, 5% of 75% commission is only 3.75% of the sales price), and the 5% is only for a very limited time only. So while yes, I use an a referral link in this page, I'm not really expecting to earn much if anything with it (but if I'm proved wrong by my 2-tier results, I'll update this page and admit it!).
Gripes about the two tier element aside, I do like the RegNow affiliate program. What I like best is:
Disclosure: As indicated in the review, our company is a member of this affiliate program, and may receive compensation through the two-tier element of the program, for helping to promote the affiliate program.
