  1. Hi Timothy

    Thank you for your review of Awin, an affiliate network that I am well aware of. It has affiliates with so many well known companies of household names that everybody is familiar with and so can relate to it very well. It is a good company to get into provided the advertisers used is numerous enough to generate enough  income in your niche. More advertisers will definitely mean more chances of review. I got to admit I find paying the initial fee a bit strange, as they return it once a sale is made. It makes you wonder why they do so. Guess they do so if you are genuine or not.

    It is good  to know about these affiliate networks exists and that they come recommend.

    Are you planning any more affiliate network reviews, as it is good to find out what is out there?



    • Yes before I do I want to spend enough time reviewing to give as unbiased a review as possible …there are so many to choose from so yes I will continue to research and post articles to my website.

      Thanks for your feedback 


  2. Because the affiliate network’s headquarters is based on Germany, are the vendors mostly European companies or do they accept companies from outside Europe like the United States? I’m interested in joining AWIN but I’d like to make sure that there’s a wide choices of products and vendors to promote just like those in Commission Junction and Clickbank.

    • Yes they operate in over 100 countries … available in US 

      You choose where you are going to market 


  3. This is tempting, I have not heard about Awin before this post .took my interest,

    I wonder why they want to charge 5 dollars? 
    i will check out this platform,and do some research too.do they have height ticket offers too?
    are you a member of awin affiliate?how did you find out about this platform?

    • I do reviews of platforms and company’s that offer affiliate programs… many I review I’ve become an affiliate with … I did become an AWIN affiliate after doing the review..

      As far as the $5 charge to register which is refunded once you are approved is to have only serious marketers apply … plus to offset some of the expense of paying someone to research and verify new a applicants.

      Thanks for your interest


  4. AWIN sounds like a platform that doesn’t work in the states. It will be very sad if I am right about this because they are also from Germany. I think I have seen the name somewhere online before. It is very good to see that they have been here for quite a while now. This shows how serious they have been in the affiliate game. So, to clarify, do they operate outside the European countries? Thank you for sharing this post.

    • Yes they operate in over 100 countries and operate in the US 

      Thanks for asking


  5. Hello, it is my first time of hearing about AWIN but it is a very good one that I will really like to give a try out considering the many different types of scams that are out there when it comes to becoming an affiliate. One thing that can make me want to get involved in this is the fact that there are many people who have joined and every day, people still rush in. I would be happy to know why there is a fee of $5 that will be returned.

    • I believe the fee is two-fold to separate the true affiliate marketers and also to offset some of their costs of people hired to review and verify  applicants. The fee is refunded when you are accepted as an affiliate.

      Thanks for asking 


  6. Thank you for this great review on Awin, Awin has been one of the greatest platforms I wanna be on, but then I don’t have the privilege because I don’t know more about it yet, but with this post, you have posted I really have a better view of it, i wanna ask how much will you use to register on it or is the registration free?thanks

  7. Well! It seems AWIN is offering a unique view to the way everything else is presented and I kind of like this. I like the offer they present as an affiliate program. However, I would love to know the chances of people outside Europe joining up with them since they have their headquarters situated in Germany(Europe) and to also be sure of the chances we have in getting most products we are familiar with in the things we can promote too. Thanks

    • They operate in over 100 countries including Australia , Canada, US,…..

      they list the countries that they are available in…..

      hope that helps


  8. This article is a very informative one, Affiliate marketing with no doubt is taking over the online marketing and online business world with its offers and opportunities. AWIN I a good and profitable company, i like that and the fact that it has grown into a big investment makes it a good option. Please is AWIN available all around the globe? I mean, there are some companies still restricted to a particular part of the world, is AWIN like this?

    • They operate in over 100 countries…..

      not sure which country you need to know….they list what countries they are in.


  9. Thank you so much for sharing here. It is a matter of fact that AWIN is really doing it the right way and that would make everything else worthy. I like that they offer affiliate program here and truly worthy. I would like to invest into this since they offer products in my niche. Well worthy. Thank you for sharing here
