Top Affiliate Marketing Programs By Country

 

Hello there! Welcome to the world of global affiliate marketing! The internet is home to many retailers, many of which have affiliate programs. You may be familiar with your local retailers and some major retailers around the globe (cough cough, Amazon!, cough). Still, odds are you’ve overlooked a large number of retailers, with affiliate programs, with which your customers abroad may prefer to shop. And if you’re unaware of the top affiliate marketing programs abroad, it won’t be easy to branch out your affiliate efforts effectively.

We have proven that your customers are more likely to buy a product (after clicking your affiliate links) when they are able to shop at their preferred store. Allowing your customers to shop where they feel most comfortable (think local language, currency, and fast shipping!) can boost your commissions and give your customers a more streamlined shopping experience. With this in mind, we’ve created the following resource of the top affiliate marketing programs (the top retailers with affiliate programs) across some of the most popular categories, and in the countries from which we see significant traffic.

This list of the top affiliate marketing programs was gathered from multiple databases and is ranked primarily on sales. See below for details on the sites used and how this information was collected.

What to do with this information

The below tables show you the top retailers by country in each category. You can click any button in a chart to see information about that retailer, a link to its website, and a link to its affiliate program.

When using Geniuslink, we encourage our clients to keep a close eye on their international click traffic to identify where in the world they have an active and engaged audience. Then, using our Advanced Links feature, you can customize the experience of your link to provide the shoppers in specific countries with a link to the same product you are recommending, but in their local storefront.

If you want to take full advantage of Geniuslink, then you can create an Advanced link that includes the top countries you see traffic from then nest in country-specific Choice Pages that contain each of the top retailers for that country.  Let us know if you’d like some help setting this up!

We hope that you will use this information to offer your customers in other countries a better shopping experience and that you will boost your commissions and sales by taking advantage of these (international) affiliate programs.
