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.

For sure, you can't use Tapfiliate as an affiliate network, they don't have such a feature.

Cons

  • 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!

  • Trial policy, they force you to put your credit card in order to check their features.
  • Customer support, they don't explain deeply their features, they force you to check their demo.
  • Notifications, as they don't notify you before they charge you.

We needed their help previously to take the decision to buy or not, but they didn't explain deeply the features and if they meet our needs or not. Instead of this, they forced us to create the account, and put our credit card in order to check the Demo. So their help was really nonexistent.

Alternatives Considered
Partnerize
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.

Return on Investment
Partnerize
  • 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.
