Pros

I chose Target Circle because I was looking for an affiliate management platform with all-inclusive functionalities. As of now I can say that this is a software I can totally rely on. It’s a great technology solution that manages all kinds of affiliate management tasks such as partner billing and payouts and reporting for us. Our team is very happy with the platform. We monitor the dashboard every day that gives us a great overview of all the actions and extract reports on a weekly basis. The software allows us to work out our own customized report templates according to our needs and metrics that are important to us.

Pricing is relatively fair and clear as well. Haven’t paid anything additionally yet.

Cons

The integration was kind of difficult with our platform, but we managed to overcome it.

Pros

As a new player in the performance marketing industry, we needed a highly developed platform. The wide range of time-saving tools gives our account managers free space and allows them to focus on campaign management and optimization. One of the key arguments for choosing Target Circle was the advanced technology in terms of tracking. A constantly growing shared publisher database - Target Circle has an entire publisher management team dedicated to extending the quantity and quality of affiliates in the open marketplace – was another selling point for the choice of Target Circle. The various customization possibilities and the fast and professional support complete the package.

Cons

Some UX challenges at the beginning, resulting in too much manual work, but everything changed over time.

Who doesn't love savings!?

Overall, the store locator feature combined with the item search is a real time saver when I am looking for something I don't buy often and don't have to hunt all over the store or find an employee to ask in order to locate it. Seemed like there were more savings offers when it was Cartwheel, but still usually save a few bucks when shopping by using the app.

Pros

While most retailers are constantly pestering you to download their app, most don't really give you compelling reasons to do so. The Circle app, the next gen of Cartwheel, makes it easy to save money as you shop. I use the scanner feature as I put items in my cart, and it will tell you if savings are available, and you can then add that to your wallet. Also will sometimes suggest an alternate product with savings if the one you scanned doesn't have savings. The app also saves past receipts, so if you have a return later you can just pull it up in the app. Also, easy to choose the store you are shopping in with the app, and it will tell you where in the store a product is located if you are looking for something specific. Love the savings!!

Cons

My only complaint is that just like with the old Cartwheel app, you can scan through and look for savings by product category, but these are not linked to store inventory. So you will see a '50% off' deal and look all over the store for it and not find it most of the time. I suspect most of the 'big savings' items are closeouts, but used to use the 'offers' feature when making my shopping list but have given up on that as I waste too much time hunting for them and not finding them. So just scan items as I put them in my cart. Also not clear how the 'Target Circle benefits' is supposed to work. I will have the item savings show up in my wallet, but no 'earnings' most of the time. Added bonus is nice, but not sure why it is usually not there, not clear how I earn it.

User Friendly interface with lots of great tracking features. You're alway in the know about upcoming features too. Really worth a try if you want to get started in campaign perfromance tracking

Pros

Great tracking capabilities across devices and domains using 1st Party Cookie and Postback ("Cookieless") solutions. Great implementation instructions to follow with screenshots always help the first time users whether they are Publishers, Advertisers or Network/Agencies. Lost of planned and upcoming features and the guys really listen to feedback of the users to make for a great UX.

Cons

Sometimes there are a few bugs after deployments but the support team are very quick to fix issues whenever they arise - No system is perfect though and its how you handle an issue that counts. The TC support crew are great at this.
