Tapfiliate is an affiliate management platform that lets you self-manage your partnerships. The platform is incredibly popular amongst e-commerce and software businesses, as they shift away from using affiliate networks to having direct relationships with their promoters. In our Tapfiliate review, we dive in to see if this affiliate platform is worth using.
Features & Functionality
Manage Affiliate Partners
Tapfiliate allows you to manage all your affiliate partners in one place. The easy onboarding for affiliate partners means they get all the required resources from premade support content to their affiliate links to easily share and promote your business on their channels. Here’s how Tapfiliate can help.
- Give personal referral links and coupons
- Manage banners and other brand materials
- Create shareable social media posts for affiliates
Whitelabel affiliate pages
Want to run an affiliate program that doesn’t have someone else’s branding over yours? Tapfiliate allows you to replace their own logo with yours, so your customers won’t know Tapfiliate is the enging behind your affiliate program, and would think you created the affiliate program all by yourself!
Want to supercharge your affiliate sales? Offer bonus campaigns to your affiliate sellers for hitting certain KPIs. From a larger % in commission to a Ferrari, prizes can help you get that extra boost in sales from your affiliate partners.
Add-Ons & Integrations
One of the biggest perks of Tapfiliate is their abundance in their integrations, so conversion tracking can be seamlessly installed. No matter what your business model is, as long as your sales happen online, there’s a big chance that Tapfiliate can account for the sale. From selling software (SAAS) through Stripe as your payment gateway or e-commerce businesses on Shopify or WooCommerce or even larger e-commerce websites powered by Magento,
Tapfiliate has a direct integration with the platform.
Here’s the list of all the supported integrations:
- WIX Stores
- Big Commerce
- Miva Merchant
- Shopping cart elite
- WP Easy Cart
Ease of Use
As a user of Tapfiliate from both sides of the table, helping businesses set up an affiliate program to a user signing up to one’s affiliate program, the process is always seamless. Never had we had issues with conversion tracking and the payout process was straight forward.
However, as a business, a successful affiliate program takes more than just great software. You need to consistently bring affiliates onboard and convince them to promote your product or software, especially in the early days, when your brand is less known.
Sure, Tapfiliate allows affiliates to sign up themselves, but keep in mind, affiliates have their own options on who to promote, so if you want your brand to be top of their mind, then you need to take an active approach in turning your affiliates into great brand ambassadors.
Plans & Pricing
Tapfiliate starts at $69 a month, giving you access to their tracking platform, automation and reporting. Their next plan up at $149 gives you more whitelabel options, so your affiliates won’t see the Tapfiliate branding and bonus incentives.
Pros & Cons
- Seamless set up
- Easy to for affiliates to sign up
- Affordable pricing options
- Abundance to integrations
- 0% transaction fees
- Learning curve and set up time required to actively run the affiliate program
To wrap things up, an affiliate program can deliver wonders for your sales. It is the best way to have both your business and the affiliate’s interest aligned, so both parties make money. Far too often do I see brands bring on influencers who don’t care about the brand, only to take the money, make one lousy post which turns into nothing. Affiliates can ensure they get rewarded according to their contribution to your bottom line.
Tapfiliate is a great platform, and it’s one I highly recommend.
