How to choose a VPN offer

As elsewhere, offers with quite low payouts are more suitable for beginners who want to gain experience and make first mistakes on simpler options.

But CPS and RevShare offers, for obvious reasons, are more difficult to convert: the user will have to get a wallet and pay for a VPN subscription.

As for RevShare, it also has its own nuances. You may be promised payment in the amount of 100% of the income per subscriber, but the period of such payment is usually no more than 1 month. So, be careful with the terms.

For the game of long-term profit, offers with a 30-50% payment for the entire lifetime of clients on the service are more suitable. Such a user will bring you more income in the long term, but it will also be more difficult to convert it.

Affiliate programs vs. branded affiliate VPN programs

Where to go for a VPN offer: to an affiliate program or to the VPN software itself?

The global VPN market has a wide choice and excellent terms from direct advertisers – VPN brands. Direct advertiser attracts affiliates with higher payouts. It’s clear: you don’t have to share with an intermediary (affiliate program). The only disadvantage is that you will have one offer or product that is not suitable for everyone.

In this regard, affiliate programs are more attractive: you can launch several offers at once and see what goes on.

Here you can find an overview of VPNs for affiliates.
