April 12th, 2008, 12:54 AM #1Disney Shopping Affiliate Program Lowers Commission
the Disney Shopping channel affiliate program announced that it's lowering the base commission from 5% to 3%.
I hate when merchants do that. 3% that really sucks.

With the cost of gas (shipping) reaching record levels, I expect to [sadly] see more of this. It is either cut comms a little or raise the price of the product to the consumer. Higher priced product = less sales. I am not saying I agree with it, but as we move into new territory with oil prices things like this might just be both inevitable and commonplace. Prepare yourself. Diversify.

And as that result, many affiliates may sadly choose to jump ship and go with an affiliate program that offers a better commission structuyre for their hard work.

Their new terms:
You may only promote discounts or coupons specific to the affiliate channel provided directly to you by Disney and/or LinkShare.
Promotions found directly on the Disney website or from any other source may not be promoted and are grounds for immediate termination from the program.
Yet in their newsletter - D-Brief: The May Disney Shopping Publisher Newsletter they honor an affiliate of the month who is posting deals not compliant with the terms.
Free shipping on order $75+ on purchases using disney card
Coupon Code: VISA75

The whole thing seems in character for Disney given their March affiliate of the month......ebates.
Our March Affiliate of the Month is eBates.com. By working closely with us on promotions and ad buys, eBates increased their revenue over last year's sales and experienced very strong conversions with us.

So is Disney subliminally telling affiliates that it's ok to disregard their agreement terms when it comes to only promoting coupons available through the interface?
Maybe it's ok to do this for merchants that are on Linkshare because it feels like many merchants on Linkshare don't have real affiliate managers that actively police their agreement terms?
Ok Disney. I can read between the lines. Wink. Wink.

It's not a Linkshare thing. Some programs give special permission to certain affiliates to do things that are not allowed per their T&Cs. That can be posting coupons, bidding on their trademarks or virtually anything else.
