Plimus - Very similar to clickbank but with different offers, easy to get accepted.
Markethealth - Focuses more on health/wellbeing based offers, mostly physical products, easy to get accepted.
Linkshare - Easy to get accepted, great tracking. However often has lower commission rates because merchants have to pay a lot for the use of their service and technology. Payments often take longer than other networks.
As Seen On PC - Relatively easy to get accepted, but prefers if you can show an example website. Great because they have a lot of physical product offerings with solid payouts, which is good for your newsletter sequence if you are looking for more products to promote in a particular list or on your website.
Commission Junction - Easy to get accepted, commissions rates vary wildly, some are good, others are terrible. The interface is a little tricky, but easy when you get the hang of it. Offers a wide variety of offers, some are really well known. Offers product feeds.
Shareasale - Good ever growing selection of offers, not as large as CJ but on average the commissions are much better. Relatively easy to join and to use.
Neverblueads - They prefer intermediate and advanced affiliates to apply here. It would be better to set up and promote a clickbank or other affiliate product first before applying here so you can show an example of your website(s). Make sure you mention you will be sending a lot of ppc traffic (if you will be) as this is a good selling point to get yourself accepted here. Has great affiliate managers.
Azoogle - Similar to Neverblueads in that they prefer intermediate and advanced affiliates. They run regular affiliate contests to spice things up. I haven't used Azoogle much myself yet but I hear good things about their affiliate managers from other affiliate friends of mine.
Affiliate.com - Similar to Neverblueads in that they prefer intermediate and advanced affiliates. Some good CPA offers here, but not a huge variety. That said, some affiliates are making a killing off their top few offers.
Uniqueleads - Prefer intermediate and advanced affiliates, has some great performing offers and is an up and coming affiliate cpa network.
