Have you heard the news? What about? Wealthy Affiliate just released a unique Affiliate Programs Platform, and it is available for all WA members, including Starter (FREE) Members. Getting a list of the highest paying affiliate programs in your niche and managing all the affiliate programs you are part of has never been made easier!
I said it straight up and right away!!! Perhaps, I should prepare you for the news by creating some mysterious atmosphere and raising your curiosity first… Well, I couldn’t hold it. 🙂 But, I only read the news and did not explore the new feature yet. I saved it to do together with you and will post the video below.
Would you like to find out more, though?
Are you familiar with Wealthy Affiliate, or a member already? If not, please click the banner below to read my detailed review. You’ll understand better why I love this company so much!
It’ll be two years this summer since I’ve joined Wealthy Affiliate. I’ve written this review a little over a year ago. 7 months ago, I’ve fully updated it, because WA co-founders Carson & Kyle and their team are constantly working on enhancements for WA platforms and adding new features. Since January 2018, they’ve revamped User Experience, added security (SSL) to all our websites hosted at WA, made their system mobile-friendly, and more – all this was done at no cost for Starter members and no extra cost for Premium members.
A few days ago, Carson announced a launch of yet another new platform: Affiliate Programs.
Wealthy Affiliate Overview
“The single most important ingredient in the recipe for success is transparency because transparency builds trust.”
– Denise Morrison
Wealthy Affiliate is the leading company in the Affiliate Marketing industry. It offers the most comprehensive training to all levels of marketers worldwide, empowers them with the most technologically advanced tools, and provides excellent support in all areas of online business. I am speaking this from my heart. I recommend this company to you because I sincerely believe you will find their services the most beneficial and the most cost-efficient.
I won’t rewrite the entire Wealthy Affiliate review in this post, but I’d like to highlight a few points that set WA ahead of all other companies.
The WA co-founders Kyle & Carson.
A company’s environment, ethics, quality of offered products and services, and its development are the reflection of the characters of the founders.
Kyle and Carson are both well-educated, well-mannered, truly hard-working, organized and very productive individuals. They have innovative minds of entrepreneurs. They care about their business and their community. They maintain a high level of transparency in their business operation and thus earn the trust of the community. They personally prosper financially by offering more and better services to their members and fairly attracting more people to join, rather than baiting people in by deceiving promises. While the services offered by WA are rapidly improving and growing, the cost of the annual Premium membership hasn’t changed since the birth of the company in 2005. The Starter membership stays free despite all the additions.
Despite their huge workload, Kyle and Carson are part of the community they built and they made themselves accessible. You can catch up with Kyle in the WA Live Chat several times a week. Kyle is a presenter of the lessons in the training programs. He also runs on-going “Super Affiliate” training, where he writes up learning material for a month, creates tasks for every participant to complete in his/her business during the month, sends private messages, participates in the discussions, answers questions. Carson is working more behind the scene; he is running all the technology projects, and yet I often see his responses to the members’ questions in the blogs or classrooms, and greetings on members’ profiles.
I truly appreciate the modesty of WA co-founders. They don’t promote invasively their lifestyle to you suggesting that you will live this style as well if only you join WA. I am saying this because I’ve seen this technique used by other companies too many times. It really makes me sick! Kyle and Carson explain to newbies that the sources of your revenue in affiliate marketing are unlimited, the number of Internet users, who are your potential customers, is over 4 billion. Therefore, your own earnings can be as much as you set your mind to, but ‘setting your mind’ means commitment and dedicated work. Kyle and Carson never promise anyone quick and easy money; they don’t bait you by flashing packs of 100-dollar bills in front of your face.
Wealthy Affiliate runs its own high-paying Affiliate Program. The commission rate is close to 50%.
There is one upscale and flashy event that the WA co-founders run yearly, but they run it with and for the community members, the best WA affiliate marketers – “Super Affiliates”. Everyone in the community has an equal chance to be invited for this Super Affiliate conference in Las Vegas, but of course, it’s not easy at all to meet the requirements. The owners pay all the expenses for everybody invited. It’s the way for Kyle and Carson to thank their best affiliates and to reward them for their great work. The link above in this paragraph is to the story about this year’s (2019) conference told by a “Super Affiliate” Eric – a guy, who joined Wealthy Affiliate in 2017, just a few months before I did, and went to Vegas for the second time this year.

Affiliate Programs platform, which I’ll talk about in more detail in the next section.
New WA ‘Affiliate Programs’ Platform
I’ve read Carson’s blog about the platform and saved doing the “unboxing” together with you. You see, I didn’t create a mystery cloud around the news at the beginning of my post, but I saved all the fun to share with you!
Per Carson, this WA Affiliate Programs platform version 1.0 was focused on establishing the core search functionality and management technology. In this first release, we should be able to:
- Search any keyword and get a list of associated Affiliate Programs
- Filter results based on
- Commission rate – here you go! That’s how you should be able to find the highest paying Affiliate Programs
- Payout option
- Auto Approval
- Network Fee
- Categorize the searches
- Follow the programs of your interest
- Easily discuss the programs with other WA members, learn from those who have experienced a program you are interested in.
- Read reviews.
- Provide your own feedback.
There is already a solid plan for the evolution of this platform. A number of enhancements are slated for the next 12-18 months. The most valuable and powerful goal that WA developers set for themselves is to connect Affiliate Programs managers with Affiliates.
I don’t think that any affiliate marketer would argue with the fact that there is no transparency between the merchant and the affiliate. All stakeholders will benefit from the bridge covering this gap.
Let’s see what the first release of the WA Affiliate Programs platform looks like and whether we’d be able to identify the highest paying affiliate programs using this new tool.
As we just discovered, this new platform enables you to search for the highest paying affiliate programs. We filtered the search for commission percentage over 40% and the dollar amount of your commission per sale over $70.00. We then sorted the results based on commission % in descending order. We didn’t set any additional filters. However, you could perform this same search with additional criteria such as your niche-related keyword.
Wealthy Affiliate Is a Platform for Your Success.
The WA is evolving faster than the industry. Its platforms continuously enhance and innovate. It’s hard to keep up even by providing up-to-date reviews.
The founders are determined to equip marketers with the most efficient tools and most current information. They’ve reached a great level of success many years ago because they’ve been always focused on helping others to succeed more than on the dollar amount they can put in their own pocket. However, one naturally leads to the other: you care about your community, members stay with your company for years and new people join in.
Some people joined WA 5-10 ago as absolute beginners, and they now support and mentor newcomers while successfully running their own online business on WA platform. There are people who joined years ago and didn’t realize back then the gem they have found. They left looking for better opportunities and returned years later with regrets that they wasted so much time.
Don’t waste any more of your time. Start enjoying today all the services, tools and features Wealthy Affiliate provides for your success.
The starter membership is time-unlimited, and you’d always have a chance to upgrade to the Premium

I explored the affiliate programs section a few days ago and to be honest, I’m not all that impressed with it. While I did find a few useful programs, I also found many that contained dead links and sites that weren’t even secure, so I asked myself whether half of these sites were even for real.
Further, few of them were really even worth signing on for, seeing constant commission rates throughout a variety of niches fewer than 10%.
I don’t know; it’s still early and WA is a great platform, but I hope this turns out to be a real ringer rather than a liability for the site.
Thank you for stopping by and sharing your first experience.
I’ve been a software developer for over 20 years. Maybe my better understanding of whom to praise and whom to blame in the field of programming allows me to be more positive and excited about the new development. You see, programmers can only be responsible for the quality of code that belongs to them, the code they write. WA team of developers can search, filter, store only the front-end of the currently available affiliate programs. They’ve done it well in the first release.
I am glad that the tool returns all available affiliate programs rather than only the highest paying affiliate programs. Amazon, for example, pays only 5-6% to its affiliates. However, lots of affiliate marketers have joined the program because of the huge variety of their products – they make good money from a large number of sales because customers can find almost everything they need on Amazon. And yet, as we saw in the video, the new platform allows you to filter only the companies with a high commission rate if that’s what you are looking for, or set any other filter you prefer.
Carson tells us that WA’s goal is to connect affiliates with merchants and affiliate program managers. That will require not only programming but also business relationships with affiliate programs’ managers and business owners. What’s not working on the connected websites must be resolved by the vendors’ web developers. That must be communicated with the program managers. Our reviews on the WA platform will help identify these problems. Did you leave your feedback on the platform reporting the dead links? That would be your awesome contribution towards the improvement of those affiliate programs and as a result, improvement of WA’s Affiliate Programs search tool as well.
The first step was to identify currently existing affiliate programs and get them all in one place. It was well done by the Wealthy Affiliate team.
The following steps would require communication and business relationship with the managers of the programs/ owners of the companies as well as input from the affiliate marketers. WA team has a plan for the next 12-18 months to work on enhancing the platform.
I am very optimistic about the future of this new Affiliate Programs platform because I know Kyle and Carson as people who keep their word and work hard to accomplish their goals. I am very grateful for their innovative ideas, their work and the first release of this already helpful tool.
I encourage you to visit and explore the platform again, investigate the best way of using this tool to benefit your business and take a part in identifying the issues to help developers in improving the overall functionality.
All the best,
Julia, very impressive post and incredible new resource from Wealthy Affiliate! It is so difficult to find legitimate affiliate programs. With this new resource, we can see ratings and experiences from others we trust inside WA! Not only that, but we can filter our search to find only affiliate programs with higher commissions or high ratings. I can’t wait to dig in and find some real opportunities – thank you for sharing!
Thank you so much for reading my post and for your feedback! I am glad that you too feel that the new tool, even though in its infancy, is an incredible resource for the affiliate marketers. The ability to handle in one place all the aspects required for running a successful online business is saving lots of time. I used to spend hours trying to find the right affiliate programs for my niche, and yet I now see that I’ve missed many and possibly found not the best ones. Now, we can find many programs and compare them just by a single click. I found the filtering and sorting options very useful. There were not many reviews yet, but I’ve seen a few already. I am sure that the feedback from other affiliates will be very helpful.
Good luck with your business!
Just wanted to drop you a line and let you know, you’re doing a good thing for people by promoting Wealthy Affiliate. People need to know that there’s a real way to break free from the 9 to 5 grind, one that isn’t a get-rich-quick scheme or an MLM, but a very real platform that will teach you how to build a functional, monetized website in no time flat.
I joined up with WA myself about 2 months ago, with zero web building knowledge, and zero knowledge of how to operate an online business. I now have a functional website that has been recognized and indexed by Google, and I’m already receiving traffic, it blows my mind when I think about how easy Wealthy Affiliate made it for me to learn this stuff.
Great job on this article, it’s extremely thorough and lays out everything people need to know about getting started at WA, it was an enjoyable read, thank you!
I wish you great success, and I hope you have a wonderful week!
Thank you for the comment and your kind wishes.
Whenever I speak of Wealthy Affiliate, I speak highly, because joining it was the best decision I’ve made in my current circumstance. I am glad that you found and joined this amazing community, and are taking advantage of all the incredible resources offered by WA.
The main focus of this post was to reveal and promote this new Affiliate Programs platform rather than Wealthy Affiliate itself, but I guess you are right — I always promote my favorite company. LOL Since you are still very new in the online marketing industry, you may not realize and fully appreciate the value of this new feature yet. I am sure that just in a couple more months you’d be grateful for having this resource.
By the way, like in any business, one needs a special set of skills and a dedicated hard work to succeed in direct sales, but I wouldn’t trash all MLM companies. There are some very good brands and some very successful associates in this business model. As a matter of fact, there are some WA members who’ve succeeded in both multi-level and affiliate marketing fields. The knowledge received at WA in affiliate marketing can be beneficially used by the direct sales associates. I could recommend a couple of great MLMs – check out my “Reviews” menu at the top of the screen.
I wish great success in your new online venture as well.
I always look forward to your comments or posts because I know I’m going to learn something or get a different take on a subject that I was already thinking about. This post is no different. I have always appreciated the resources offered at WA, but your specific focus on the new ‘Affiliate Programs’ platform has reminded me of the continuing commitment by WA to not only keep up with the latest trends in affiliate marketing but to also give its community an edge that will make it easier for members to find success online.
Thanks so much for your excellent briefing of this exciting new resource by WA. I can’t wait to try it out. Also thanks for your generosity. I can’t help but notice that whether it’s an article on your website or a comment on another writer’s blog post, you always put your all–giving thought-provoking and inspiring observations. I’m glad that we found each other through WA and I look forward to reading more of your posts. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you so much for your kind words. Our sympathy is mutual. I love reading your blog, and I am also glad that we’ve met online at WA.
I hope you’d appreciate the new feature allowing us to search, filter and sort the available Affiliate Programs as well as keep track of them all in one place.
I’m so excited about this new platform. It’s only in its infancy, and will no doubt grow significantly.
I’ve been a member of Wealthy Affiliate for a long time now, and they never cease to amaze me. Each and every year their additions and improvements are incredibly helpful, and at no additional cost to us. I don’t know of anyone else who can claim that lol.
Just the fact that we’ll be able to find legitimate affiliate programs that offer quality products is a breath of fresh air. And being able to connect with the merchants right on the WA platform will save a lot of time and frustration.
Thanks again for a great review of the world’s best platform!
Thank you very much for stopping by, reading and commenting. It’s nice to receive an approving message from a Wealthy Affiliate oldtimer like you are. I greatly appreciate the fact that WA has one membership price, no upsells, and yet they add more and more useful tools and functionality for us, and keeping the Premium membership price the same for so many years.
In one of your reviews, you said that being a Clickbank affiliate is good if you can find a valuable product. It will be so much easier to find a quality product using WA Affiliate Programs platform. Today, I checked the new platform again, and some reviews, ratings, and comments are already added there by the community members. People are sharing their experience – good and bad. The more people use the platform, the more helpful it becomes.
And of course, the WA development team is working tirelessly on adding more features.
Thank you again for your feedback,
I have tried over many years 2-3 of them and was never impressed with what you can get out of them. I had a very good ranking site, had a lot of traffic but the programs did not manage to bring me anything. I wonder if they really work properly and if they use proper machine learning to find the right ads or just place what is best paid.
Right now, this program is also in its infancy, and you may not find it very useful today. But, it’s a part of the Wealthy Affiliate platform with over a million members. I see great value in this tool as more people participate in using it and more features are added to it by developers.
Based only on the features available right now in version 1.0, the main value I see is in people’s feedback. WA developers have no control over what merchants who offer affiliate programs are doing and how they manage their programs… just yet. Unfortunately, many affiliate programs are managed poorly. However, this tool already allows WA members sharing their experience participating in these programs. When a marketer considers a new affiliate program for participation he/she can come here and read what kind of experience other marketers had with the program of his/her interest, and make a decision whether to join or not based on the feedback.
Another value that I see in this program today is to be able to organize, keep track and manage all your affiliate programs in one place.
More exciting features are coming up in future releases. Per Carson, the co-owner of WA: “The companies that you work with, are going to have a stake in this platform moving forward. Affiliate Managers and company owners are going to be able to manage their affiliate programs here within WA, and are also going to have a direct platform to communicate with you as an affiliate (and field your questions about their program).” I firmly believe that when the communication between the affiliates and program owners/managers will be established, it will result in significant improvement of the Affiliate Programs out there, and our experience with them.
Thank you very much for taking the time to read this post. I greatly appreciate your feedback.
