Hence, it would be very easy for you to choose ShareASale as your best network to make commissions.
So without wasting any more time, let me start with this most detailed article.
What is ShareASale?
ShareASale is the biggest, trustworthy and one of my favourite affiliate marketing networks in this industry.
It has a big network of merchants (advertisers) and publishers (affiliates).
Let me tell you the fact that on this network, you will be able to see more than 16,000 merchants (advertisers), which means that there are more than 16,000 affiliate programs.
Hence, it is the biggest opportunity for you to make money in affiliate marketing.
Since it is a network, therefore to become its affiliate member, all you have to do is first of all you have to get approved on ShareASale.
Believe me, it is very easy to take its approval.
Well, this was all about the ShareASale, now let me start the review of this network.
ShareASale Affiliate Program Review (Starts from here)
As I already told you that it is one of the biggest and powerful networks of affiliate marketing.
In its marketplace, there are more than 16,000 advertisers, hence you can now imagine how big this platform is.
The traffic on the ShareASale network is in millions (data by Similarweb), so you can easily trust it.
Inside its network, you will get all the types of affiliate offers such as CPL, CPS, CPA etc.
Using ShareASale Dashboard
So once you are approved on the ShareASale, you will be able to log in to your affiliate dashboard, which is awesome.
A good affiliate network has a simple and easy to understand affiliate dashboard and you will get these qualities in the dashboard of ShareASale.
At the top-right of the main dashboard, you will be able to see your commission, which you have earned by promoting the offers.
And this is the best part I like about this network.
If you want to see more data such as clicks, impressions, CTR etc, then all you have to do is scroll down and come to the bottom of this page.
Then you will be able to check all the stats and also you will be able to understand clearly.
Another best part is that you will get a list of all the programs (merchants) you have joined on the main dashboard page (below the commission).
At the left side of the ‘joined merchants’ section, you will be able to see some banners of featured merchants of ShareASale, you can even join them, as they are very popular over this network.
Along with this, if you want to know that how you have earned commission, I mean that your commission history.
For this, you have to scroll down the main affiliate dashboard page, where you will find the section of Recent Transaction.
At the top, you will be able to see a menu, from which you can navigate to any part or section of the ShareASale dashboard.
Finding Best Merchants
Since this is the review of the ShareASale network, I should also cover this factor also, which is how to find the best merchants.
If you want to look for some advertisers or want to find some merchants or affiliate programs, then for this you have to come to the ‘search for merchants’ part, which is under the merchant’s section.
Once you will come to this page, you will find some featured merchants of different categories, so if you want to join them, then you can do this easily.
If you want to search for a custom offer or advertiser, then you can also do this by typing its name in the search bar.
But, if you don’t have any idea and want the best or top merchants, then for this you have to apply a filter.
This filter is known as ‘Power Rank’, you will see this filter side to the search bar.
Once you will apply this filter, you will get some of the best merchants on ShareASale, hence you are free to join anyone.
This power rank means that the merchants who have a power rank under 1000 are considered the best merchants.
Hence, to get the best results, you should look for offers that have a power rank under 1000.
Now it doesn’t mean that the merchants which have power rank above 1000 are bad, they are also good enough to make a good amount of commissions.
Getting Marketing Materials
Now in the ShareASale Affiliate Program Review let me also review that how easy it is to take out marketing materials.
In order to promote any affiliate program which you have joined on this network, all you need is its affiliate links, banners etc.
To get these materials, all you have to do is to come to the ‘Get a Link/Banner part’, which is under the Links section.
Once you will come here you will be able to see the merchants you have joined.
Now there only, you will get a button of ‘Get Links’, first of all, you have to choose the program and then simply click on the Get Links button.
Then there you will get all the marketing materials such as banners, raw links, multiple landing page links and you can even create a custom link, which is known as a deep link.
From here, you are free to pick any affiliate link or any affiliate banner of multiple dimensions and let me tell you that these banners are very attractive and high converting.
Hence, it would be very easy for you to promote the affiliate programs on it.
Deep Linking Process
Now if you want to know that how to do deep links on ShareASale, then let me explain you in detail.
Deep linking means, creating a custom link so that you can promote a particular page or feature of an advertiser or you can get another link for tracking.
To do this, first of all, you have to come to the Get Link/Banner part (which is under the Links section).
There you have to choose the program by clicking on the Get Links.
After coming there you will get all the marketing materials of that particular merchant.
There will be an option known as Create a Custom link, you have to come to that part.
After going there, you will be easily able to create a custom link for your campaign.
Let me make it clear for you
Step:1 Go in the Get Links/Banner section
Step:2 Click on the Get Links (of a program)
Step:3 Go in the Create Custom link section
ShareASale Payment Methods
This is one of the most important factors or things that we must discuss, which is ShareASale Payment Methods.

As you all are aware that ShareASale is an affiliate marketing network.
It has a very big marketplace or network of multiple advertisers (brands) as well as publishers (affiliates).
What these brands do is list their affiliate program on the ShareASale marketplace.
And affiliates join ShareASale to promote the affiliate programs of brands.
