The Best Cost-Per-Sale Affiliate Networks In 2022
Best CPS / Affiliate Network Overall
Joint-winners (first time ever!)
We congratulate Rakuten Affiliate Network and Awin Group for the first ever Joint-#1 ranking in the Cost-Per-Sale Networks category.
How it happened: Awin Group received terrific support from advertisers and publishers, however the enthusiasm from ShareASale partners in particular was even greater. Rakuten, as always, got top marks across every section of our voting panel reflecting their all-around excellence. We couldn’t find a fair way to split the two networks and in truth, they both deserve to be #1.
2021 saw huge disruptions in the industry ecosystem, with knock-on effects for our rankings. More networks flamed out than we have ever seen before, and the pressure on publishers and advertisers has been intense. The lack of industry events and face-to-face meetings has also changed the dynamic of finding new partners. Our winning networks – and indeed, all of our top 20 Blue Book winners – are those that were able to evolve and adapt rapidly to the new environment. We recommend each of them, wholeheartedly.
20,000+ industry professionals participated in our survey, 150,000 data points were analyzed and then months of research all combined to result in these new 2022 rankings. We hope you find them useful.
