This service counts with about 17,000 affiliate programs and it will turn your retail links into Affiliate links. You are the one who sets the links in your site to the different merchants and skimlinks automatically will translate them into their equivalent affiliate one when clicked on, via a brief redirect to the Skimlinks servers.

The links creation is not fully automated, as it happens with infolinks for example, which translates into a bit more work for you setting up the links and on the other hand gives you total control over those links making sure you don't run into overpopulated links pages.


  • Very intuitive and easy to Use. Just set a javascript snippet in the footer of your page.
  • Skimlinks ads automatically translate product links into affiliate links.
  • Wider variety of payment offers: Bank/Wire Transfer, Check Payments to many countries, as well as PayPal.
  • Great Support: It has a ticketing/tracking system for support as well as a HelpDesk, ..besides phone and email support of course.
  • Plugins for Wordpress, vBulletin and Ning.
  • No impact to page performance.
  • You can export your reports on many helpful formats: CSV, Excel (XLS), PDF and XML


  • You only get commission on any actual sale from a link that SkimLinks is able to affiliate and make a purchase.
  • Some non technical users may have problems installing the code as it doesn't has as many snippet plugins as the rest.
  • Reports generation is very slow.

The conclusion??.

Difficult answer as all 3 are great solutions and ALL 3 will work very, very good!! but I will try to Help.

  • Infolinks have Services that the rest don't as InTag, InFrame (which can be a nice service to add when displaying your site at very high resolution monitors) or inSearch. If you need these services then InfoLinks is the answer. Also if you just have a blog and want to check how these affiliate links services work this is maybe the easiest and fastest to install.
  • Trying to sell outside of the states??. Go with SkimLinks. Also for my like is the best in support and have offices in Tokyo, London, besides the lovely San Francisco.
  • Trying to sell in and out the USA and wants to integrate your links in social media as Facebook and Twitter??. then go with the 30000 affiliate programs of Viglinks and their service VigLink Anywhere.
  • If you already have links in your site and want to convert the to affiliate programs then go for SkimLinks or VigLink.
