I had a look at the Affiliate Summit attendee list a few minutes ago and I saw:
ShopAtHome.com / BlazeXchange.com
Strange association of a CPA network and an affiliate/BHO known as ShopAtHome with a toolbar/software: SelectRebates, Golder Retriever, ShopAtHomeSelect, SAHS...

So, we have networks buying BHOs and affiliates, and BHO/affiliates buying networks. What up with the affiliate marketing model?
A BHO hiding behind a CPA network is the way to fool a merchant by mixing normal affiliate traffic with dirty redirects from their toolbar.

Just yet another reason to not work with CPA networks. As a manager we lose control over where our ads are shown or how and I suspect the CPA networks have a larger share of undesirable affiliates.

It started when CJ finally kicked them out (before letting them back in). I'm not sure how much traction, if any they have as a 'network' but I'm sure it's mostly a facade to approach and lure merchants in with as the SAHS name is 'known'.Continued Success,

once you have access to the confirmation page, assuming you lack ethics and morals, you definitely should pimp that access out to others to monetize your grand achievement, pixel ploppage.

The Toolbar functionality is dependent on our SelectRebates Software. This Software is installed as an integral part of the Toolbar. It is designed to help ensure that you never miss a Cash Back Rebate if you forget to go to our ShopAtHome.com site prior to making a purchase on an Affiliate Store's site. When you enter the URL of an Affiliate Store's web site into your browser, the Software is designed to redirect your browser first to our ShopAtHome.com Site, and then to the selected participating Affiliate Store's site. This process is designed to occur behind the scenes so you don't even know it is happening, and in a manner that does not interrupt your shopping experience.
