    Exclamation FunToCollect Closing Their Affiliate Program
    IMPORTANT: FunToCollect.com will be closing their affiliate program on 25 May 2008. Please take a note of this, and switch your banners/links accordingly. All affiliates will be paid commission on all sales through 24 May 2008, but not beyond that.

    It was a pleasure working with many of you on this program.

    Ai-ai-ai! Okay but they're not getting another chance. I'm very tired of adding them, removing them, adding them, removing them, adding them,

    FunToCollect.com will be closing their affiliate program on 25 May 2008.
    Is that's their final answer?

    They still have the, ask the audience chance!

    But...

    If that's their final answer?

    Tune in maana for a new front-runner!

    Btw, the umbilical cord still intact here, but once it's cut... there's no turning back, because a new would take that room.

    Talk about taking the Fun, out of Collecting!

    At least, they have given everyone (affiliate network, affiliates, myself) an advance notice.

    Geno,
    Do you know the reason why they are closing their affiliate program?
    I had a quick look at their stats and it doesn't look too bad from the outside.

    There are a number of reasons, Zeus, but I do not want to go into them, as the decision cannot be altered (trust me, I've tried).

    Is there a possibility that they are starting an inhouse affiliate program?

    Nope. As far as I know they are closing all affiliate marketing activities.

    I remember when I helped save the program after they tried to reverse all commissions and close the program back in 2005. I was pretty sure of them back then, but after they closed there forum here a few months ago I thought it was only a matter of time.

    Many links out there, a shame.
    Continued Success,

    And by tonight, none of them will be coming from my sites. Although, I'm sure there's another merchant I can replace them with that will be happy with my traffic.

    What a bummer...

    This sucks. I would SO love to know why they're closing the affiliate program. Not like we weren't performing.

    Lots of work ahead replacing links. I, too, have way too many to count.
    Peace,

    It is going to be hard to find replacements for some of the items.

    And they will continue to get free traffic for months from people that don't have time to remove their links.

    Plus all the lost cookies....

    You might consider eBay as a replacement if you can't find any comparable merchants.
