Big Commerce – 3rd Party Affiliate Solution

without comments

Big Commerce does not come with a built-in affiliate solution.  So I went ahead to evaluate 3rd party affiliate solutions that might work.  Of all four solutions I tried, I was unsuccessful in integrating them.  Clearly, there’s a business opportunity here.  Here’s my report on the four I tried:

 

idevdirect.com – I got to the page that let’s me create an integration profile for interspire (big commerce).  I filled out the form and pressed a submit button.  I’m thrown back ot the start page, with no “success message”, BC snippet code, or anything to indicate that I actually created an integration profile.   I can’t figure out how this works…UI is terrible

 

qualityunit.com/postaffiliatepro/services – This is a great piece of software, but it doesn’t support big commerce.  I ended up using it with another shopping cart system called magento.

 

omnistar affiliate tracking – Fiddled around with it for 30 minutes. Trying to create an affiliate profile, I get a blank page.  I was on the phone on hold for the entire 30 minutes…never got in touch with a sales agent.

 

shareasale.com – I can’t figure out how to try a demo
