    Channeladvisor.com - stealware/parasiteware ??
    I've been losing a lot of ACRU's from ebay and not sure why.

    I went through one of my websites and then noticed cookies from channeladvisor.com depositied after going through one of my affiliate links.

    On my computer there was also this:

    http://count.channeladvisor.com/Sell/rovercounter.asp?pid=22001085&cid=50536728

    Is this a service that ebay uses or ebay sellers? And if it's ebay sellers then is Channeladvisor.com also an affiliate for ebay??

    Also - if anyone could offer a suggestion as to the best low cost stealware removal programs I would greatly appreciate it!!

    Thanks!

    From a merchant side, I can tell you how Channel Advisor is used. Not sure about the affililate dealing or whether they are into that?

    They manage listing on eBay for us and help us with auction listing, notification and payment/checkout. They are an interface between merchants (us) and eBay.

    Their commission structure is usually based on every successful auction on eBay.

    You have to dig into their cookie more as to whether they are overriding your cookies, etc. Sorry...
    Thx

    That PID info is NOT my PID - that is my concern. Is that a CJ PID that belongs to ChannelAdvisor that they are putting on my harddrive... or does channeladvisor assign PIDs to people who belong to their program that sell on ebay?

    Am I making any sense? lol.

    Does anyone know if ChannelAdvisor.com is also an affiliate of ebay?

    I wondered on that - esp. given your post title. I still wonder whether you want to post the PID # --- then again it may be a PID that people want to look for in their own stuff. It certainly seems nefarious. You might want to check w/affiliatefairplay to see if this is a known issue or not. Good luck!
