Yes, you can use affiliate program on your site. There are so many affiliate programs available and few of them as best are eBay and Flipkart. The issue of using Affiliate program and its ad is that it may divert the AdSense adv click which may finally affect your AdSense revenue.

In case if an affiliate ad click / revenue is better than the AdSense (rare case) then it has no issue. You need to concentrate on sale conversion than commission from this program to get enough revenue. Finally, the success also depends on huge organic traffic to the site.

Anyhow, find some other best affiliate programs as below;

GoDaddy Affiliate Program
IndiaTimes Shopping
Amazon India Affiliate Program
Junglee Affiliate Program
IndiaMART Affiliate Program

You may try few of them to get approval and experiment on your blog/site.

There are plenty of affiliate programs out there. However your site must match with the niche that these programs are offering. However some of the most common affiliate programs that work on most sites are as follows -

1. Amazon India - They have 4% basic commission rate on all products. So you can earn some decent money if you drive traffic to them.

2. Flipkart : This store also offers nice 5-10% commission depending on the product being sold. So you have some good earning with it.

3. Godaddy - They have some decent commission and you can make some good money selling their domains and hosting. Though it takes time for the traffic to convert.

Know the niche that your website is into and then promote the program accordingly. Don't promote grocery on gadgets website and vice versa. Know the niche and promote right products and you will make money.

There are a lot of opportunities to earn money from affiliate programs. But the problem is how you drive traffic and converting traffic into sales in case of affiliate marketing. If you have developed a niche site in affiliate marketing, then you can see high conversion ratio. Though you can sign up for various affiliate programs available in India, like Flipkart, Amazon, Paytm, Snapdeal, etc, it will be tedious process to get signup with each one and making them getting into your website. So I would suggest you to use cuelinks affiliate program for Indian traffic and Vigilink for US / UK traffic. Because these affiliate programs contains all of the affiliates and thus you can set up your website with one click. What you have to do is, sign up with cuelinks or Vigilink and then you need to run a script to your website. Cuelinks will convert all your outbound links of Indian merchant sites to affiliate links. But cuelink will take 25% of commission and you will get 75% of your acutual commission.

Affliate Program is a best solution to get extra money from your site or blog. But the base you need is traffic. The more traffic you have, the more will be your chance of getting high payments.
Sites like GoDaddy will give returns when you make a domain sale for them. You act as a person who make people go to GoDaddy.
Affliate programs of amazon, flipkart, etc. will give your commission based on the sales generated from the ads in your blog.
It is better to do affliate activities with the big players like the above mentioned. Not because you get high pay, but you are least likely to get dumped. There are some sites which promise high returns for every click. But in fact they will just make you lose your time. So go for the popular reliable ones. Regards.

First of all, let me tell you that there are many affiliate programs in the market and people are making huge money out of it. You can choose Amazon affiliate program for both India and US. If your website gets a lot of traffic from this two countries then it can convert well. There are other platforms like ShareASale, Commission Junction, Click Bank etc. which provides too many options to choose products from. Depending on your website's content and the kind of visitors you get, you can choose affiliate links for the products from here.
