10 Plus Size Affiliate Programs

Hello there Sea Changers. Welcome back to my series of program lists to assist those of you looking to fund your sea change with affiliate marketing. Recently I wrote a post on affiliate programs within the clothing niche and it quickly became apparent that the sub niche that we will look into today is so popular that it can easily be utilised to create an online affiliate marketing business on its own. So with that, welcome to my post covering 10 plus size affiliate programs to turn out in 2020.

Before we begin however, I am conscious that there are a number of different areas or sub niches even within the plus size clothing niche hence the quantity of affiliate programs to choose from may be just as large. So how have I picked my best 10? Well… I really just wanted to give you a good cross section of what is out there so I did some searching around and checked a few out and chose them by looking at:

  • What they offer
  • Commission rates
  • Payment terms
  • Cookie duration
  • Application processes
  • Affiliate/Marketing materials provided

Before we start however, let’s have a look at what I mean by the term ‘plus sized’ and how it can be incorporated within an affiliate marketing website…

What do we mean by plus size fashion?

As I have mentioned above, even though I have broken the clothing niche down a little, there is still a lot here when it comes to plus size fashion – which is generally looking at fashion items size 14 and up. There are also a lot of general clothing sites out there that include plus sized options within their product ranges. So for this post, I have tried to cover a good cross section across the range of plus sized only fashion with sites covering:

  • Women’s clothes (general)
  • Men’s clothes (usually described as ‘big and tall’)
  • Fashion/name brand clothes
  • Specialty items
  • Accessories
  • Shoes

And of course anything else you can think of when it comes to plus sized fashion… So, if you are make money selling clothes online then let’s check them out below.

What can affiliate marketers promote?

There are essentially no real barriers to what affiliate marketers can promote when it comes to plus size fashion. There are however some things to be aware of as you run your eye over clothing affiliate program possibilities that may suit your site. These are:

  1. Know your audience, some purchasers are looking for specifics and want the best whilst others are hoping to just get a nice outfit on a budget. Choose your affiliate sites accordingly.
  2. Purchasers of high end fashion label items and accessories will not take risks if they don’t trust you or your affiliate site. Make sure the programs you choose are reputable and have good recourse options if the purchaser is not happy.
  3. Those purchasing for a special occasion (weddings etc.) will need to know specs and maybe even want them customised or sized – make sure your affiliate program is able to meet these requirements.

That said, stats show that people will spend money on fashion items online if it can make their lives easier so as long as you are meeting their needs and solving problems, then you are on the right track. And to give you a boost, let’s have a look at 10 programs that I have found below:

Amazon Associates

Alternatively, should you wish to set up your site up with a range from a few different brands or companies on the same site then you can do so via Amazon. Amazon provides access to a good range of plus sized fashion related products and has a fairly good affiliate program as well. So if you wish, join the Amazon Associates program, locate the best products relevant to your site within Amazon itself and you can post links on your own site as per below:

Amazon’s commission rates are not too bad and some prefer this avenue due to the sheer amount of traffic and trustworthiness that comes with a company site of this size.

How to find your own affiliate programs

As stated earlier, by outlining the sites above I have really just tried to give you a good cross section of the types of programs that are out there by listing the really good ones in each ‘category’. That does not mean that you cannot find affiliate programs that better suit (no pun intended haha) what it is that you are trying to do within this space especially as I could never even begin to cover every plus size related requirement or sub niche in the one post. Luckily for us, there is a simple way to find these programs online.

All you need to do is enter “affiliate: niche type” into your search engine (substituting ‘niche type‘ for whatever product it is that you are choosing to sell).

Plus Size Affiliate Programs - affiliate

There are plus size fashion related affiliate programs for everything else that we have listed at the top of this page as well – you will just need to have a look around until you find one or two that suit your site. Once you have completed your searches, you can look through and find programs that:

  • Relate to your niche/problems that you are solving.
  • Have quality products – your brand can be severely damaged if you promote poor quality products.
  • Have solid payment and customer service arrangement.
  • Pay decent commissions.
  • Have good testimonials covering commission payouts and quality of product.

In most cases, you will need to apply for the program before you are allowed to promote their products – don’t take this step lightly or you will be rejected. Affiliate programs will generally want to know:

  • Your website name.
  • Traffic levels.
  • Why you want to join – (so I can make money by selling your xxxl polo shirts is unfortunately not generally a good enough answer).
  • How you plan to promote their products.

Conclusion

So… There are 10 of the best plus size affiliate programs to work with in 2020. I hope it has been helpful for you as you commence your own fashion based affiliate marketing business and as usual, please do not hesitate to comment below if you have any questions, need some advice or have any experiences to share. Oh, and especially comment if you have any experience with these, or any other programs as well.

Until next time

Have fun
