Physical products are tough because a lot of people want to see the product in person. Say, for example, a shed. This is something that is costly and will alter the look of their yard, so this would probably be a bit difficult to sell online, especially if there are heavy shipping costs.
The other issue I've found with physical products is the low commission rates (read: Amazon Associates). With digital products, I typically receive anywhere from 40% to 75% commissions, including promoting Affilorama which sometimes earns me close to $500 per sale. My advice is to try to stick with digital products, but if you want to go with physical products, make sure they are products that people wouldn't think twice about buying online.
