Is there an affiliate tracking application that you'd recommend?

I'm looking for something reliable and preferably easy to implement. Required features:

  • Clicks tracking
  • Leads tracking
  • Sales tracking

(I've used PostAffiliate Pro until now, but it has proven very unreliable so far.)

What was wrong with PostAffiliate? I was going to use them? – Nick Apr 12 '11 at 14:33

You can use the google analytic and URL builder, so you build your url, give them on your affiliate persons, and then use google analytic to track all the informations you need.

We use this for hireahelper.com along with some customization now that we have grown, but it works well. – mike the mike Jul 13 '10 at 20:41

My company zferral can handle all of these items. Our web-based software enables companies to create custom affiliate and referral programs. It is free to start and then pay-as-you-grow. You can get up and running pretty quickly...

Impressions, clicks, events, affiliates, commissions, campaigns & analytics are all tracked for both your company and your affiliates. This way, both parties may optimize their performance!

In addition, you can create "non-monetary" campaigns to reward your affiliates with any sort of "currency" you can dream up: points, gold stars, t-shirts, etc..

Finally, we have an open API for full customization and are integrated with several awesome web apps, including: Highrise, Capsule, FreshBooks & MailChimp.
