If you're an affiliate who lives outside the U.S. or a U.S.-based affiliate promoting non-U.S. merchants, you've undoubtedly tried affiliate links that redirect to completely unrelated sites (usually a survey site), because the merhcant's offer is only available to residents outside your country.
It's a pain in the butt if, like me, you won't promote offers that you can't check out and soooooo many merchants don't (or won't) provide affiliate links that allow their non-U.S. affiliates access to see the offer firsthand.
Anyway, here's a very simple solution.
Use Proxify.com, a web-based anonymous proxy service that hides your IP address so you won't be identified as a non-U.S. based surfer.
You don't need a paid subscription. Just enter the affiliate link in the search box and voila! you get to see whether or not you really want to promote that product.
On the other hand, you might want to promote Proxify's service to your site visitors and subscribers who have other reasons to remain anonymous. The program is available through ShareaSale.
