    Is there any affiliate programs better than Flipkart

    Flipkart has a lot more established and matured affiliate program compared to many others, even though the commissions are lower than the industry standard compared to countries like USA.

    If you look at the conversions and earnings, most Indian affiliate marketers report that Flipkart will be the best option since they offer a lot of great discounts to consumers. There may be many other affiliate programs which offer better conversion rates but if the prices are not the best, your readers are not going to buy from them and that also means you will not get any commission.

    Even though the commission rates offered by them is not the best, as of now, it is one of the best affiliate programs for Indian publishers. If you are looking at higher commission percentage, you may consider Tradus.com Affiliate program.

    I haven't heard of cparevenue.net but there is nothing wrong in trying yourself. You can go to their website and register for their programs. They seem to be just another new affiliate network, which is not well established yet. It may take a while for them to start getting good clients and expand their network. By looking at their website and the language they have used, they don't seem to be well placed themselves in the affiliate marketing field.

    Flipkart reduced their affiliate commission from 4% to 3% for electronics items which is a bad news for bloggers and affiliates.
