Affiliate Program Rating System

Hello

I am quite new to the affiliate world. I have been looking on affilorama for affiliate programs and notice the rating after each one. I take it the higher the rating the better, but what is the rating based on.

Thank you.

The rating is based on a number of things, all crunched together by a slightly mind-boggling algorithm that I won't bore you with (at this stage).

Basically it's a combination of:

* Payout percentage (what proportion of the product price you earn)
* Payout amount (what that actual amount is that you earn per sale)
* Referred percentage (how many sales come from referrals)
* Whether it's 1 tier or 2 tiers (whether you only get commission for your sales, or whether you get a (smaller) commissions for sales made by people who bought through you.)

That's a pretty simplified answer, but you get the picture. And yup... higher is better!
