Awin is a global affiliate marketing platform that was formed in 2017 after companies Zanox and Affiliate Window decided to join forces and rebrand into one entity. As a result, Zanox became one of the fastest growing affiliate networks out there and it merged with the European Affilinet network that’s operating since 1997. Although Zanox sounds like a new name in the industry, the company has been operating in the affiliate networking space since the 2000s.
With over 15 offices around the world, Awin currently has 1,000 employees serving over 100 000 contributing publishers. Their global presence extends to over 180 countries with over 13 000 advertisers on the platform. It’s safe to say that Awin has become an industry leader with a generated revenue of over 12 billion pounds for its advertisers. They offer affiliate networking programs in different niches including finance, retail, travel, and more.

Updating the commission rates for programs requires making an additional API request for each program. Due to the limitations of the Awin API, we cannot update the commission rates for all programs, otherwise an update would take tens of minutes to hours.
We have chosen to update the commission rates in batches:
Due to these conditions, it is possible that a program will require several updates in order to have its commission rate updated on Strackr.
