I have a web startup that we are getting ready to take live. I have researched a few companies that I am interested in partnering with to provide our site with custom services and products. I cannot find any information on what to expect from a commission perspective in the overall internet industry for partnerships. I know affiliate programs typically give 5-20% is this a good starting point? Or does it just come down to negotiation once you are introduced? At a high level they would provide us custom packages of services/products and we would sell them on our site.
I want to sound educated in this field when I reach out to these potential partners so any information you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
