The gaming industry in the U.S. is worth a staggering 95.45 billion dollars. Currently, it is the highest it has ever been. Recently, it has even been estimated that it may exceed the 400 billion dollar mark by 2028.

It is no wonder then that you are looking to invest your time into this niche which has exploded, perhaps due in part to the recent COVID-19 pandemic when people had nothing to do (remember all those Nintendo Switch consoles flying off the shelves?).

Gaming is also becoming more accessible, with the gender gap on its way to closing. In 2021 alone, 45 percent of gamers in the U.S. were said to be women.

Even so, gaming is a ma-hoosive industry, and one that you can make money from as an affiliate marketer. In this article we shall take a look at 32 gaming affiliates to partner up with.

So, whether you are new to game blogging, or you are looking to expand your portfolio, keep on reading!

The Best Gaming Affiliate Programs

1. Twitch

twitch

  • Official Name: Twitch Affiliate Program
  • Commission: 5%
  • Cookies: Not stated

There are over 9 million users of Twitch, making it one of the most valued social platforms for gamers around the world.

Its popularity even sees streamers have their own fans, with some gaining millions of followers, just for playing games and chatting.

Because of this, it is no surprise that Twitch has decided to monetize the exposure to help them sell games (Twitch belongs to Amazon, after all).

One way is by streamers being a part of the affiliate program.

However, to add this one to your affiliate portfolio, you will need to have a streaming channel, rather than a blog.

This means that whilst you are spending time chilling and catching bugs in the latest Animal Crossing, you will also need to promote some games.

You could say that by joining up to this channel, you are getting paid to sell games, which is kinda cool, right?

That being said, not everyone can join up to the affiliate program.

Currently, Twitch wants to work with any streamer who is not a partner, has at the very least around 50 followers, and has accumulated 500 minutes of broadcast over their streams in the past 30 days.

That is not all though, these streams need to have around 3 different viewers each time on average, too. At 5 percent, it doesn’t seem like a whole lot, but it could provide a steady side hustle.

2. Acer

Acer

  • Official Name: Acer Affiliate Program
  • Commission: 4%
  • Cookies: 14 days

Acer, just like Twitch, is likely to be a known brand to you. Their desktop computers and laptops have been around for a number of years now, but did you know that they also dabble in other areas such as VR, tablets, and gaming technology?

Predator is their range of products aimed at gamers. Some of the stuff included are hardworking gaming laptops (with some stating that Fortnite plays at 249 FPS), as well as a massage chair called the Thronos Air.

Yes, you heard that right, a massage chair for gamers. After playing League of Legends 5 hours straight (please don’t!), you will need that chair to massage those shoulders.

Not only that, they have a screen mount, allowing you to choose how many screens you would like to mount at a time to easily play games on your PC.

And just for your information, it does not look like the same screen mount that sits in your office – it is beastly!

The Acer affiliate program allows you to earn 4 percent for every sale that you make. With a 14 day cookie duration, there is enough time to make sales.

3. GeekBuying

GeekBuying

  • Official Name: GeekBuying Affiliate Program
  • Commission: 8%
  • Cookies: 30 days

GeekBuying is an online store that sells everything from 3D printers and headphones, to gaming consoles and memory cards.

Whilst they do not sell video games specifically, they are on hand to provide everything else.

Being a gamer, you will likely need some of this stuff, and it should not be too difficult to talk about in your blog.

Accessories can also be a fun thing to purchase, and the items can be made into a blog post about what to buy a gamer for Christmas.

The commission is not too bad either, with 8 percent being earned for every sale that goes through.

There is also a cookie window of 30 days which gives customers enough time to make that sale.

4. Turtle Beach

Turtle Beach

  • Official Name: Turtle Beach Affiliate Program
  • Commission: 4%
  • Cookies: 30 days

Turtle Beach offers its customers premium accessories, from controllers to headsets.

In fact, the latter is the company’s most popular selling item – they have over a hundred different varieties available that work with Nintendo, PC, Xbox, and Playstation.

The headsets themselves are award-winning too, and are used by those who consider themselves to be a casual gamer or an Esports athlete.

The commission made from the affiliate program is only 4 percent however.

Despite the average sale being around 84 dollars, there is a chance to make some good money here. Many items are priced near the 300 hundred dollar mark, so this program is worth investing your time into.

5. GameStop

GameStop

  • Official Name: GameStop Affiliate Program
  • Commission: 5% and under
  • Cookies: 1 day

If you have not heard of GameStop, then where have you been? They are only just the largest retailer of video games across the United States.

Whilst they do sell the latest games, as well the favorites, they also offer other items too such as collectibles, homeware, gaming consoles, accessories and so on, all related to gaming.

You can make some money from this vast array of items via every sale. Whilst the cookie duration is only one day, you do have a chance to make 5 percent on every sale that goes through.

GameStop is a trusted brand, so you do not have to do the hard work of trying to grow trust between the reader and the items being promoted.

6. Amazon

Amazon

  • Official Name: Amazon Associates Affiliate Program
  • Commission: 1-2%
  • Cookies: 1 day

It comes as no surprise that you have probably used Amazon on more than one occasion, whether it was to buy a last minute gift for a friend, or needing cookie cutters.

Basically, Amazon sells a lot of items that cover a vast number of genres.

Because of this, you will find everything from gaming accessories and merchandise, to the games themselves.

Amazon is also a really easy platform to buy these products from and customers know the brand’s reputation, so you will not struggle to create some sales.

However, Amazon has some strict rules with low percentages and cookie windows. For example, you will only make a 1 percent commission on consoles and video games, and a 2 percent commission on digital games.

Oh, and the cookie window is only a day. So, you will want to partner this affiliate program up with some others to maximize your earning potential.

7. ModdedZone

ModdedZone

  • Official Name: ModdedZone Affiliate Program
  • Commission: 5%
  • Cookies: 90 days

If you are bored of the standard game controllers, then you might want to check out ModdedZone.

They take the humble controller and turn it into something amazing. In fact, you can order one to the specifications you want when it comes to the colors and placements.

But it does not stop there, oh no. You can also add on or remove components on the controller, from the motor to having actions enabled such as a ‘rapid fire’ option, among other things.

Because these are not considered a hack, they are said to be unnoticed by game servers which might be helpful if you are looking to benefit from not only the design, but the game playing too.

ModdedZone only works with Nintendo, Playstation, and Xbox controllers. It does not matter how old the controller is either.

If you are hoping they sell other things too, then you are in luck. They also stock chairs for gaming, though they are not modifiable and are sold as seen.

5 percent is not the most when it comes to commission, but you can make around 5 dollars on a near 200 dollar sale.

It will mount up over time, and becomes even better if the customer uses the pay now pay later option. Especially because the cookie duration is a whopping 90 days.

8. GameFly

GameFly

  • Official Name: GameFly Affiliate Program
  • Commission: 10%
  • Cookies: 25 days

It might sound odd to rent video games these days, but people still like and use these kinds of services.

GameFly gives customers the opportunity to rent a vast range of games for all the main consoles, and have it delivered directly to your front door.

Whilst it might seem like we are living back in the late nineties, it has some perks. You can rent a video game without paying the full RRP cost, complete it, earn the trophies and achievements, and send it back.

The shipping is completely free too, as well as the shipping fee for when the customer returns it. You also do not get charged any fees for returning the game late. Incredible.

They also have controllers, collectibles and accessories available to buy.

An affiliate member can make 5 to 15 dollars a month depending on the subscription price, with the cheapest costing $9.50 every month.

You can also earn from 8 to 10 percent through every game sold, rather than rented.

9. SCDKey

10. Microsoft

microsoft

  • Official Name: Microsoft Affiliate Program
  • Commission: 2%
  • Cookies: Not stated

Microsoft is one of the ‘founders’ of PC gamers. They made gaming possible, as well as accessible, back in the day when people were using Windows 3.x.

If anybody wanted to play games on their PC before this, then they would need to understand some of the technical jargon and knowledge in order to do so, which most people did not have.

Whilst some kids were still playing their SNES, others were venturing into the world of PC games.

Over the next couple of decades, the sales of games for the PC grew and grew. Now the PC gaming market is worth around 44 billion dollars.

Microsoft not only helped gamers on a desktop, but they also launched the first Xbox back in 2001 in North America.

It was the Xbox 360 which was released in 2005 that accumulated all the loyal fans. This also included its Xbox Live launch.

The 2 percent commission rate is quite low, but it is still a great affiliate program to be a part of, especially when teamed up with other programs to make money.

11. eBay

eBay

  • Official Name: eBay Partner Network
  • Commission: 6% and under
  • Cookies: 1 day

eBay is a great place to go for new and secondhand gaming accessories and video games.

Due to the structure of eBay, customers can get some great details when buying pretty much anything.

eBay allows for you to earn up to a 6 percent commission on each sale of a specific item, or a sale of more than one product.

Whilst there is a good chance you might be earning under the 6 percent mark, keep in mind that eBay has over 183 million people who buy products, and there are over a billion different listings.

That is a high chance of earnings. However you may want to supplement this affiliate program with another, as you will not be able to quit your day job with just this one alone!

  • Official Name: Green Man Gaming Affiliate Program

13. War Gaming Dot Net

War Gaming Dot Net

  • Official Name: WarGaming.net Affiliate Program
  • Commission: $1 to $7.50
  • Cookies: Not stated

This is great news for you if you want to become a part of their affiliate program. War Gaming Dot Net owns the likes of Pagan Online, Gods and Glory, World of Warplanes, and Masters of Orion.

14. Leprestore

Leprestore

  • Official Name: Leprestore Affiliate Program
  • Commission: 10%
  • Cookies: 15 days

Boosting services are common when it comes to MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing games) such as Destiny 2, Apex Legends, and WoW Classic, but what exactly are they?

These kinds of games involve characters who level up in order to become stronger and to acquire specific skills and items. Because of this, it can take a gamer hours to develop a high level character.

Whilst it is fun to level up the character yourself, some people do not want to, and would prefer a company to do it for them. Even though it is only a small sub-niche, people do regularly use this kind of service.

Who wouldn’t want their character’s XP to grow overnight?

Whilst the commission is only 9 dollars for every time a gamer has their character leveled up, there will be those who really enjoy the service and will return.

However, to blog about this, you may want to understand more about character development and how XP works, etc. otherwise you may come across as a bit of a fake. Gamers will see right through you.

15. Bose

Bose

  • Official Name: Bose Affiliate Program
  • Commission: 2% to 3%

When it comes to the quality of the equipment, as well as the sound, Bose are up there in the top 5. The brand includes noise canceling headphones which are a dream to use by gamers.

Whilst Bose products are pricey, their name is associated with top quality audio equipment, and as you may have learned by now, gamers are willing to spend money for fantastic products to use.

Whilst the overall commission rate of 2 to 3 percent is on the lower end, it is also pretty standard for electronic items like this. However, let’s not forget that Bose sells high end products that cost quite a bit of money.

So, you will likely earn a double figure of money every time someone buys headphones. That makes it worth it!

FinalMouse

  • Official Name: FinalMouse Affiliate Program
  • Commission: 25%

Gaming hardware is a big industry. That is because whilst you could buy regular PC equipment for example, they do not hold up to specialized products.

Take the humble mouse. It does the job of scrolling and clicking, and fits comfortably in the palm of the hand.

However, when it comes to being a gamer, you might not want a standard PC mouse bought from Target.

This is because gaming mice are faster and have been created with the gamer in mind. They can also look really cool alongside a top of the range gaming PC.

32. Nvidia

Nvidia

  • Official Name: Nvidia Affiliate Program
  • Commission: 2%
  • Cookies: 45 days

Nvidia is a funny one, because nobody really knows how to pronounce the brand’s name. Is it nah-vidia, or is it N-vidia?

Whilst some companies sell their products directly, Nvidia creates leading technology that is put into hardware and software.

They then recommend those products and sell them via their online store.

They began in the early 90s having created a graphics chip for gaming PCs – yes, even back then!

In today’s market, Nvidia has a top of the range selection when it comes to graphics processing units (otherwise known as GPU) that are put into some of the best gaming laptops and computers.

However, at 2 percent commission, it is not surprising that at first it might not get you motivated.

And not only that, the things to promote from the brand on your blog are vast, so prices may vary.

Final Thoughts

The gaming affiliate marketing industry is a fantastic niche to make money from right now.

The popularity for gaming, and everything that comes with it, is only growing every year, so it makes perfect sense to blog about it.

Like we said previously, it is worth just shy of one hundred billion dollars. That is a lot of money.

The only downside to gaming affiliate marketing, is that whilst there are some niches which you can blog about without any prior knowledge, you may find that some affiliate partnerships at least require you to know something about gaming (Twitch we are looking at you).

If playing computer games is your passion – well, you will have no problem then – but if it is not, then it is time to do some research first.

Hopefully this article has helped you to become inspired to begin your gaming blog journey, or perhaps you have added some new names to your affiliate portfolio.

Whatever route you decide to take, if you work hard and choose the right affiliate partnerships for your blog, there is no doubt that you will be making an income soon.

Happy blogging!
