Affiliate Programs in India are less than Expected!
It's quite surprising to see how the TOP eCommerce companies in India have still not come up with their Affiliate Programs. It's very handful of them who have their own affiliate programs, but nothing close to the matured US eCommerce industry where you will find standalone "Affiliate Marketing" departments.
Lack of Affiliate Networks
It would take a while till we see Indian versions of the websites like Commission Junction, Linkshare, Shareasale, etc. This is primarily due to the following reasons:
- Lack of business research
- Inexperienced CEOs in eCommerce companies
- Unseasoned affiliates in the market
