Avangate Ranked #1 Affiliate Network for Digital Downloads in 2016

Recent Survey by mThink Credits Avangate as “Most Popular” by some Margin

REDWOOD CITY, CA - February 2, 2016 - Avangate, the modern digital commerce solution provider trusted by thousands of software, SaaS and online services companies to grow their business worldwide, today announced its top ranking in the Online Advertising Blue Book Top 20 CPS Affiliate Networks for 2016 focused on digital downloads and fourth in the overall ranking.

Avangate maintains this position for the second consecutive year, getting ahead of giants such as Amazon Affiliates, CJ Affiliate and proving once again its leadership and focus on software, SaaS and other digital goods.

The Blue Book Top 20 is carried out by mThink and takes into account reputation, clientele, popularity and scale of over 400 networks worldwide. An important part of the ranking process is a survey of over 20,000 industry figures, in addition to research, aggregated expert views, traffic data and measures of industry influence.

"Avangate continues to be our most popular digital downloads network by some margin and we are very pleased to see the unrelenting support they get from their publisher community," said Chris Trayhorn, CEO of mThink. "Especially as they compete for rankings with much larger, general networks, Avangate is proof that focus and quality of service are highly appreciated."

"Affiliate marketing plays an important role, as it generates on average 10%-30% of revenue for our clients. We are very pleased with the position gained as first Affiliate Network focused on Digital Goods in the 2016 mThink Blue Book and for maintaining that for the second consecutive year," said Cristian Miculi, Sr. Manager, Managed Affiliate Services at Avangate.
