The Affiliate People tracking system is a custom made system built using The system automates most of the routine admin tasks which make managing an affiliate program time consuming.

The system underwent months of meticulous planning and design to ensure that it met the needs of both affiliates and merchants.

After a number of requests from partners about our affiliate tracking system we decided to make it available for all to use.

We know one size does not fit all…

We don’t like to use the term package as we believe that one size does not fit all. Every company has different needs and as such packages do not always fit what you want to do.

With our affiliate tracking system you will get the following as standard and then you can bolt-on or get us to build the extras you want. For example if you want a special type of report to be made available or a web service to be developed we can do this.

What does it cost?

Costs are competitive and this includes hosting and some flexibility to custom the system to your needs. Remember you are not getting an off the shelf package. You are getting a system that has been tried and tested, but you have the flexibility to make changes and develop additional features so it meets your needs. Many companies buy off the shelf packages which can be inflexible or expensive to customise. Our system can be developed so it does what YOU want to do.
