As affiliates ourselves we know what features are must-haves and what makes a tool like this great. We’ve been refining our tool for a number of years now and are always finding new and innovating ways to improve.
There’s a lot that goes into producing a plugin like this and it’s more than just adding features.
Here at ThirstyAffiliates, we pride ourselves on our customer service and try our best to ensure everyone has a good experience while using our product.
We give an industry best 60 day guarantee on our product and we take care of our customers personally when it comes to support issues rather than just sending everyone to an inactive ghost town forum.
