Top 5 Recurring 2-Tier Affiliate Programs [Internet Marketing Niche]

Two-Tier affiliate programs are a great way to generate ADDITIONAL passive income on top of existing recurring commissions without any extra effort. I love recurring affiliate programs because they provide the ability to earn consistent monthly income from a service people need month after month.

With the following two-tier affiliate programs, you are able to earn EXTRA recurring income by simply referring sub-affiliates to these programs. Although most 2-tier affiliate programs typically only pay out 1 – 5% commissions, this extra income can really add up if you refer sub-affiliates who are serious about promoting the offers.

Below are my Top 5 Recurring 2-Tier Affiliate Programs in the internet marketing niche. Each of these programs can prove extremely lucrative.

  1. Going through your posts. Great reading. Very informative.

    I’m not sure if this is what you mean but I belong to a program that helps people make and save money (I have been paid by this one). People who sign up pay a monthly membership . This gives them access to several savings portals. One is the travel savings portion (save up to 75% on 1 million hotels and condos). The other is the savings portal where you can save on all kinds of items (too many to list). You get paid 3 different ways.

    1. When you refer someone you get paid 50% fast start bonus when they initially
    sign up.
    2. Monthly you get a recurring payment on your direct referrals membership – 20%
    3. Monthly you also get a recurring payment on everyone on your team (whether
    you referred them or not) – 5%

    There is also infinity coded bonuses as well.

    It is a great program. The founder’s mission is to help 1 million families become financially free. A mission I am proud to be a part of.


    1. Hi Denise, thanks for your comment. What you’re referring to sounds like a multi-level marketing company – not to be confused with affiliate programs. MLMs may claim to pay residual income on many levels, but you often have to invest money and spend money on products (usually over-priced) to participate and earn money. By marking up the price of the products, they are able to pay all the members of the company. Affiliate programs are free to join and typically pay on just one level (except for 2-tier affiliate programs that pay on 2 levels). There are not products for affiliates to purchase in order to earn an income. I hope this helps!
