I can only think of Kiflo as a great option in the PRM world. I have a great bond with the team and feel they will be the leaders soon! Kiflo can accommodate resellers, referral and affiliate partners! I have grown my partner network as Kiflo scales with me and allows me to implement different use cases

For our business, affiliate marketing is by far the lowest ROI marketing channel. If you're looking to get products, brands, and offers listed on coupon sites, Pepperjam Ascend is a great tool. If you're looking to engage with influencers or drive sales without giving away margin, Pepperjam Ascend is likely not for you.

  • The dashboard/platform is the furthest thing from user-friendly. It looks like a high school student with zero experience designed it in excel and hoped for the best with the results.
  • Reports are hit and miss. They may load, they may not! It's ridiculous, in my opinion.
  • No mobile options whatsoever, everything has to be desktop. It's 2022, they need to catch up!

Other PRMs are too expensive and do not allow SMBs to start and establish a partner network. A PRM has always been a costly tool but the guys at Kiflo have made it accessible and competing with the big dogs. No major difference between Kiflo and other expensive PRMs in respect to functionalities

Pepperjam Ascend's user interface is way behind these other platforms. It's not intuitive nor is it easy to create custom reports and engage with your publishers. We have been stuck with Pepperjam and many other affiliate networks have a very similar layout without much upside.

  • I was hitting anywhere from $130 - $450 per month in commission payout before Pepperjam Ascend. Now with Pepperjam Ascend, I maybe get $40! I am still waiting on payouts from January.
