The Fall season is one of the best times of the year for affiliate marketers, or anyone looking for extra commissions.
There’s a noticeable shift in shopping trends once the calendar and weather changes.
Since today is the official first day of Fall, we’re bringing you 5 of our favorite affiliate trends to capitalize on this year.
Each of these is a big opportunity and pays competitive commissions...
#5 - Ace Hardware
As winter gets closer, many homeowners (and renters) start making some big purchases in preparation. So while Ace has a smaller commission rate (5%), they do sell many high-ticket items.
Everything from home winterizers, to fireplaces, to snow removal equipment, sees a huge spike in demand this time of year.
And don’t forget about all the fall items people need like leaf blowers, rakes, outdoor storage sheds.
If it has to do with home improvement or maintenance, Ace Hardware sells it.

Some of their biggest product categories include:
Hunting & fishing
Auto & ATV
Like Ace Hardware, Cabela’s commission rate may seem low at first (3%), but they sell some expensive items. And when it comes to hobbies like boating and hunting, people often spend quite a bit of money.
Fall is prime hunting season in much of the United States, making the timing here perfect.
