Awin (Formerly Affiliate Window)

Awin, a shorter rebrand of the original Affiliate Window, is another popular affiliate network that gives you access to over 13,000 different merchants.

Awin actually acquired ShareASale back in 2017, though the two are still run as separate entities and have different merchants.

With 13,000+ merchants, you’ll find a lot of options for both physical and digital products at Awin.

Some of the notable big names are:

  • Etsy
  • AliExpress
  • HP
  • XE (money transfer)
  • StubHub
  • Under Armour
  • Gymshark

You’ll also find lots of smaller merchants across a range of niches.

Awin was founded in Germany, so you’ll find a little bit more of a European tilt to the merchant list, though there are also plenty of US/global companies.

Like ShareASale and CJ, you’ll need to individually apply to merchants within the network. Then, you can generate your links and start tracking statistics.
