It’s time to review another affiliate network, and this time it’s a review of FlexOffers.com. On their web site they claim to have unique affiliate content, deep links, XML feeds, and an API to deliver content to your web site. I really like affiliate networks with many API and XML features because that means you don’t have to search manually for a specific banner. You can instead just integrate the feeds directly into your current CMS or banner rotator and get fresh banners all the time without work.
Another good thing is that they have a Refer-A-Friend program where you can earn money by referring people to their service. Both you and the person you referred will get $150!! However the bad thing here is that you don’t earn your $150 until the person you referred has earn at least $2000. A percentage of the earnings would have been so much better because what if the person you refer only earns $1999 before he finds another affiliate program that’s better and signs up for that one instead. Then you don’t get anything at all as thank you for referring this person 🙁
Like all other affiliate networks you sign up with your site and other details and after they’ve reviewed your site you get access to their offers. You even get assigned an affiliate manager:
My name is Natalia, I’m your Affiliate Manager at Flexoffers.com . First of all, I would like to thank you for register with us and welcome you to our Flexoffers team!.

I’ve learned that if it sounds too good to be true it is, and it’s completely correct in the case of FlexOffers. When you apply for offers with them you get an email saying this:
I just received an email from our Compliance Department, notifying me, that you were declined for all the programs, prior to know for which domain are you going to use all of them and in which way.
When you sign up for FlexOffers you give them details about your site like domain name (i.e. where you’re going to promote their affiliate programs) and some information describing your site. Isn’t it clear when you sign up with a domain that you intend to use it, and that you sign up for an affiliate network to get content you can earn money on (i.e. banners, text links etc)? So based on this FlexOffers is just a big waste of time! 🙁
All offers found at FlexOffers can of course also be found at Commission Junction or some other affiliate networks, so you really don’t have to sign up with just FO to get a special affiliate program. It works just as fine (and in this case even better) with Commission Junction. What I really like with CJ is that they offer payments directly to bank accounts in more countries than just in US like FlexOffers only offering.
