Overall Satisfaction with Pepperjam Ascend

We use Pepperjam Ascend for several of our clients as our affiliate network. We have a wide range of clients and only a few are interested in affiliate marketing. This allows us to create programs for individual clients. Within our marketing team, two team members actively work within the Pepperjam Ascend interface.
  • Lots of coupon sites.
  • Enables different tiers of commissions.
  • Can blast out newsletters to your network.
  • The UI is awful.
  • Publishers are mostly coupon sites.
  • Confusing layout of the platform.
  • Very low ROI.
  • Less than 1% of total revenue.
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.

Would you buy Pepperjam Ascend again?


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.
