Creating affiliate sites is one of the most popular ways of making money online. Surprisingly enough, following some research, there doesn’t seem to be that many WordPress themes catering to this niche, especially when compared to other niches theme builders target very frequently.
It is, however, a fact that many affiliate marketers are looking for themes to build their sites quickly and effectively, as WordPress is the CMS of choice for affiliate marketing due to its ease of use and SEO goodness. Today we present you some of the best affiliate marketing themes we found (in no particular order), one or more of which will, hopefully, be useful for your scenario.
In addition to this post, do check out our roundup of best WordPress plugins for affiliate marketing. You will probably need at least a few of those plugins to build a successful affiliate website, in addition to one of the themes below.
Don’t forget, the performance of your site has a big impact on how long users are happy to spend on your site and how credible they will find your endorsement of your affiliate partners. Once you actually start attracting traffic, you don’t want to lose your opportunity to make real money simply because your hosting is too starved of resources to handle that traffic.
The advice we always give is to make sure you get properly resourced hosting in place before you launch. We recommend two hosts that we have seen work out well for our readers, the choice between them comes down to money:
If you are on a tight budget, BlueHost has a good reputation for well-managed and well-supported shared hosting at a good price.
If, on the other hand, absolute reliability and performance are more important to you than price, WP Engine provides the best possible managed WordPress hosting, I use them for all of my most important sites, the ones that generate money. They even work out significantly cheaper than other managed WordPress hosts if you take advantage of the exclusive discount we have arranged for the readers of WP Mayor which, surprisingly, you can use in addition to their usual annual discount:
Now, on to the themes!
OptimizePress is a powerful platform to transform your squeeze pages, sales letters, offer pages, launch funnels and membership sites into quite simply, an optimized and professional display. It will help you build opt-in lists, create a frenzy with buyers and boost your sales. Best of all, it will not require a Diploma in Information Technology to implement.
You are able to choose from 10 tested and proven templates for your squeeze/landing pages to send your optin rate through the roof, and build your list like it was on steroids.
Make your next launch epic! Utilizing OptimizePress and their advanced features will increase your visitor response and make your launch something that will be talked about for years to come.
Create an eye-catching blog that you can use as the front end of your business to drive traffic to, or as a backend for providing news and updates regarding your business.
Usability of OptimizePress has been simplified by the creators providing comprehensive and super-clear video tutorials, which have been provided in High Definition format. It has to be one of the best in the industry.
Something a lot of internet marketers have been clamoring for has been the ability to create Timed or One-Off launches. OptimizePress come to the party with the ability for the creator to set “go live” dates for specific pages, to relatively automate your launch process.
One of the most exciting things about Internet Marketing today is utilizing Facebook comments and sharing, to bring in free, targeted, viral traffic. With OptimizePress this functionality is a few clicks away. Twitter, of course, is integrated into the sharing functionalities.
Your formatting needs are covered, with the templates allowing you to get your Title, Text and Bullet points sorted out in a WYSIWYG format (that being what you see is what you get). If that is not enough, browser compatibility issues are not of a concern, as OptimizePress already meets the HTML and CSS standards required.
OptimizePress and video truly go hand in hand. You are able to utilize your own video hosted at Amazon S3 or on your server or use embedded videos from YouTube or other online video services like Easy Video Player and EZS3.
The OptimizePress system remembers whether or not your visitor has opted into your funnel, and as a result, returning visitor’s to your site won’t be shown your squeeze page again. This is critical to protect your launch content from non-optins, who will be directed to your squeeze page initially. This is part of the earlier mentioned ‘steroids’ for list building come into play.

Great roundup Mark, Splash theme is one of my favourite it’s also great for adsense. I helped create a similar collection which you can see here: https://www.wpmultiverse.com/blog/affiliate-marketing-wordpress-themes/
It as a few you haven’t mentioned and might be of value to your readers.
Now, for sure you want to be an affiliate marketer with all that benefits an affiliate could get. But, do you have what it takes to be an affiliate marketer? Before you begin your venture into affiliate marketing, you need to decide first which area interest you. What products do you know the most and which products you could do the best job of selling? Once you discover your specialty, perseverance, patience, determination comes next. These are the qualities you should possessed to be a good affiliate marketer.
Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared
to be on the net the easiest factor to consider of. I say to you, I definitely get
annoyed even as people consider concerns that they just don’t recognize about.
You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and defined out the entire thing without having side effect , other people could take a signal.
Will probably be back to get more. Thank you
Affiliate Royale V1.3.4 is a very good theme in my personal view having exotic layout and simple user interface that is perfect to augment your business up to manifolds. If you are willing to start a website for online affiliate program you must go for it. You can download it free from following sources.
a good website, a good article

I think Clipper theme along with flatter child theme is the best of all.But child themes are not free for Clipper theme.
Wow. Thank you for this wonderful list of themes. I was looking for them. Here I found a whole list of the themes where I can compare them. Thank!!
What about: https://themeforest.net/item/couponxl-coupons-deals-discounts-wp-theme/10721950 in my modest opinion this one is crazy good.
Nice list Alyona.
I recently purchased Zeno, a new theme launched in 2015 ( http://www.zenotheme.com ). It has very nice features and is designed specifically to be used for Amazon affiliate program.
You can import products from WordPress dashboard, has auto price update, responsive design, and a lot of other features.
All I’m saying is that I’m very happy with my purchase and I think it would be a good addition to your list.
Great list. I’ll be coming back here in future as I plan to build a niche site. I already have InReview, which I find a bit fiddly. My existing site is still a bit young so I have been experimenting with free themes plus plugins. It might be worth buying a specialist theme now.
Thanks for the huge list.
Here I found many good coupon themes.
Thank you Alyona Galea for sharing this sweet theme wordpress 🙂 its good for Affiliate marketers.
This is a big list of affiliate theme. More than 50% I do not know about, they are real fresh list. WP Amazillionaire is my faverite theme, unfortunately, the creator of theme (Kate) just roll the new business and I’m waiting for her next surprise on this theme.
Hi JY I am interested in this theme, the only problem I can see is it asks for the secret access key which Amazon does not give out anymore. Does the theme still work without this secret key?
What theme do you use on this website? Thanks.
Great list! I’ve used Intellitheme on a few AdSense sites and it worked really well, although the look of the theme leaves a bit to be desired.
I actually had a hard time finding a great looking responsive theme for an “authority style” Amazon Affiliate theme. So what was my solution? I recently just built a new Amazon Affiliate WordPress Theme called the Ultimate Azon Theme. It’s mobile responsive, looks great, and has a lot of really cool time saving features.
Thank you for sharing!. I like Splash theme and WP Zon Builder plugin !
Thank you for sharing!. I like Splash theme and WP Zon Builder plugin !
Marisa is really a super wordress theme but i am not sure if its great for affiliate product reviews. Most of the wordpress themes you suggested are overall good.
I like the your research on the themes and I do appreciate this. Keep it up bro 😉
I have not dived too deeply into WP aff. programs, but I recently discovered an aff. program that I really liked. I was watching a live stream at twitch.tv and there was this guy who apparently had an aff program set up for video game CD keys.
All I can say is that after having digged through all the info, it looks good and I signed up. The program is called G2a Goldmine and there are a lot of serious players involved (as in some of the best known twitch streamers), putting their face to it/vouching for it. You basically direct people via an affiliate link and you get a percentage of whatever they buy. Here is my aff link: http://bit.ly/1uuBEAb – oh and just in case, feel free to run it through the VirusTotal link checker: https://www.virustotal.com/ – it´s 100% “clean site”.
Check it out, I think you might just like it 🙂
PRIVET ALENA. KAKOI THEME LUCHSHII DLYA AFFILIATE S AMAZON? SPASIBO

AffilateTheme.net is also very good. I use it myself.
Thank you so much for the List. I have chosen the Review Engine for my next project! Incredible how much better it is compared to my current theme. Greetings, from Germany
Glad you found this post useful Michael.
Nice round up. Another fairly good theme that we use for our Amazon affiliate site is ‘AzonProfitStore’ which works quite well combined with the WPZonBuilder plugin
