What is APDB?

A Compass For Affiliates

Affiliate Program Database (APDB) is an affiliate marketing directory.

Discover the best and most profitable niches for affiliate marketing in 2021.

The best & highest paying affiliate, referral & partnership programs of 2021. Unbiased information; reviews by experienced affiliates; Q&A between affiliates & merchants.

We curate the programs that pay cash rather than the programs that compensate the referrer with credits, coupons, or discounts. Programs we select are suitable both for beginners and seasoned affiliate marketers. 99% of the programs we list are free to join.

Long Answer:

We have these guidelines:

  • Please check our Unbiased Information Policy to understand our difference compared to a typical affiliate marketing directory.
  • We may need to verify that you are a representative of the company. To make the process quicker please send all emails using your business email.
  • For the time being, we focus on companies and affiliate programs with a website in English. Your business operation can be limited to a country or a region but you need to have an English version of your website.
  • We DO NOT ACCEPT these programs: adult, violence, hate, spam, gambling, illegal, black hat, etc.
  • We want to keep it simple so we add only affiliate programs to our database. We do not add networks to our database (affiliate networks, ad networks or CPA networks). But our founder is curating networks on this Medium post. Contact us if you want your network to be listed there.
  • We focus on programs that pay cash. We do not accept programs that compensate the referrer with credits, coupons, or discounts rather than cash.
  • We are in search of high-quality programs so we reserve the right to reject programs that do not fulfill our requirements.
  • If you have doubts that your program will be suitable for our database or not, feel free to ask our opinion before you send more information.
  • If you are sure that your program is not a fit for APDB, we have an alternative way to promote your affiliate program. We run a subreddit with a more relaxed moderation: r/AffiliateMarketing247
  • Tip: We suggest our merchants using the comment box on their pages to their advantage. You can introduce yourself and provide extra information about your program there. If you subscribe(*) to that comment box, you will be notified of new comments so you can participate in the discussion. - (*) "Subscribe" link is in the bottom left corner of the Disqus comment box.
  • We have a special LinkedIn group just for affiliate managers: Affiliate Managers Cafe. Affiliate managers only. Behind the scenes of affiliate programs. How to run an affiliate program? Success tips, discussions, affiliate manager jobs, etc. Interested? Come, fellow affiliate managers and we are waiting for you there.
  • We also have a special subreddit just for affiliate managers: r/AffiliateManager
  • Our service is FREE but you can support us. If you like our database, please spread the word :)

We are looking forward to working with you and helping you find more affiliates. Thanks for your interest.
