It takes some time to learn how to use it. I do believe it could be a little more usable, but the support helps every time. Even new partners learn to use it relatively fast, and as the time goes by, you can help them yourself and they do not need to reach reach out to customer service.

Post Affiliate Pro has excellent support. It has improved over time and has a great customer support, if you have any problems. They respond quickly and so far have solved all of our problems. There could be more languages besides English, but it still works great. I can tell that the costumer service staff has a lot of experience.

Basically both are great. Post Affiliate Pro has more integration features with CMS and Payment solutions (Joomla, Drupal etc.) but has the drawback of not integrating with Salesforce and required PHP knowledge in some cases. On the other hand, Referral Rock integrates well with Salesforce and required no coding knowledge as far as I know.
