Advantages of monetizing website through e-commerce affiliation program over Adsense
Your website or blog need lots of content (excluding images, videos, etc) to get approved by Adsense to place ads in your web pages, whereas there is no such minimum requirement to place promotion banner in your web pages.
While monetizing through Adsense a click earns a maximum of 0.02$. In case of affiliation program offered by e-commerce sites you can a earn a maximum of 20% as commission once a product is sold through your promotion banner. That is , if a product worth 10 $ is sold you get 2$ as commission.
 Adsense suspend your account if there is any invalid click (invalid click means  clicks or impression that is artificially done by the publisher to increase his earning by inflating an advertiser's cost). E-commerce sites don't suspend your account for invalid click because selling their product is their major concern.
