    2busy,

    Thanks for the heads up. I've removed WeCare from our program.

    I am actively policing for parasites in both The Knot Wedding Shop's and Wedding Tracker's programs, but sometimes things slip through - please feel free to contact me via the email address in my profile if you spot either program where we shouldn't be.

    WTG, Jessie. Good to see merchants taking things as seriously as they should be taken.

    How the heck can WeCare list Viator as one of their merchants? They weren't an affiliate when we were at CJ and certainly aren't now that we are Shareasale exclusive. Thanks for posting this list and I will be doing some investigation as to *why* we are listed.

    As I thought, they were expired a LONG time ago and never bothered to remove their links to Viator. That click leads to a dead CJ inactive link. Emailing them to remove us from their site now.

    Nearly everytime I see the word "parasite" and a list of merchants, there is StubHub. This is not good. They are one of the Top 5 merchants I "use" to push. Not anymore. I am tired of seeing them associated with "questionable" programs. Last time I check FatWallet, they were there too. If this stuff doesn't change by the end of the month, I will be looking for a good sports ticket company. Parasite-Free merchant this time. If there is any left out there.

    The Viator page has been removed from the We-Care site. They were very quick to respond to my remove request. Probably because they realized they sending traffic to a dead link!

    Good to list those merchants that have disassociated themselves here, I can't edit the original list, but it was obtained from their site the same day it was posted. Hope to have a new list from Ebates here shortly.

    Thanks for the info. I'm a new AM and have just removed we-care from Corel's program (effective May 1).

    Could someone take me under their wing and loan me a list of shady affiliates so that I can scrub my program squeaky clean?

    I'm the General Manager of We-Care.com, and I know that won't make me the most popular person on this thread. I did want to clarify two points about our Plug-Ins.

    1. We do not overwrite clicks from other affiliates. We've worked hard to do that. (We actually removed our plug-ins for months while we were solving technical issues around this.)
    2. Any merchant whose terms do not allow software redirects or who request that they are not included in our software redirects remain on our site but not in our Plug-Ins.

    I know there are many on this list who believe software redirects should not be allowed under any circumstances. And I realize that I'm not going to convince you otherwise. But we have worked hard to be respectful of other publishers. Also, there are many advertisers who knowing allow the use of plug-ins and like the association they get with people's chosen nonprofits. We want to be able to offer that to them, while being respectful of other publishers and advertisers who do not wish to be included.

    Bill, I'm not trying to be argumentative but being respectful of other publishers would mean NEVER redirecting traffic that we've worked hard to send to a merchant. With the exception of traffic that originates from your own site (which I'm assuming can't be too significant or you wouldn't need to steal the traffic from other publishers) every commission that you earn is a theft.

    From the We-Care Home Page
    Shopping Responsibly means giving back to the community while shopping and booking travel. A percentage of what you spend goes to your cause. Why shop any other way?
    What I find interesting is that you fail to mention that an equal or larger share goes in to your own coffers. I wonder how many of your "contributors" would still feel good about their contribution if they knew that you were actually stealing the money from someone else. I also wonder how they would feel about the large cut that you make. In a world where many feel that a 10% administrative fee is too high for LEGITIMATE charitable organizations, how do you think they'd feel about the 50% or more that you take?

    From We-Care FAQ

    What is We-Care.com?
    We-Care.com is a better way of shopping. You shop as you normally do, at your favorite online merchants, but by adding an extra click through We-Care.com or using our plug-in, you can donate a percentage of your purchase to the nonprofit, school, or association of your choice.
    Bill, this is a lie. A truthful statement would inform the shopper that you are making a commission off of their purchase and that you are actually donating a portion of the commission earned.

    From We-Care FAQ

    What's a Plug-In?
    Our plug-in, or browser extension, makes giving automatic whenever you shop online ó even if you forget to visit We-Care.com. You can find plug-ins for Firefox and Internet Explorer on our Downloads page. Once it's installed into your browser, anytime you visit one of our merchant's homepages, you'll get a dialogue box asking you whether you want to donate a part of your purchase. All you need to do is click "Yes."
    This would be more accurate if you asked the shopper if they would like the commission of the affiliate that actually earned it diverted to We-Care and then split with their charity. Why not tell your members the truth and allow them to make an informed decision?

    From We-Care FAQ

    If you don't charge causes or shoppers, how do you make money?
    We receive our money from the merchants for driving business to their site. So, we're only as successful as the causes we support.
    Are you saying that you don't get paid for business usurped through your plug-in? Because you certainly don't "drive" any of that business to the merchants site.

    I could go on and on Bill. The bottom line is that everything on your site is carefully worded to mislead the "contributor". If your business model is so great and beneficial, why do you hide the truth from your "contributors"?

    So yes Bill, I really don't believe that software redirects should be allowed under any circumstances. You steal from affiliates, you steal from merchants and you mislead your "contributors". Frankly, you benefit more than anyone else, and from my understanding that's not what charity is supposed to be about.

    Rematt,

    As I said, we've designed our plug-ins not to redirect traffic from other publishers. (If it comes from a network click counter and/or has affsum in the URl, we don't touch it.) So, we aren't stealing from you.

    As for advertisers, a substantial minority of our advertisers choose not to allow redirects. We respect that, and only work with them through the mall.

    So, if we're not stealing your traffic and respecting advertisers that don't allow software redirects, I don't think you can fairly accuse us of stealing. (And it's certainly not the case that advertisers don't know about our plug-ins, so we're not capitalizing on ignorance either.) In fairness, a number of the merchants in the list above don't participate in our plug-in.

    Half the commission is a donation and half goes to us. This is in our TOS and FAQs. Why isn't it on our homepage? Because most users don't want an affiliate marketing 101. That's information that is important to people in this forum, to nonprofits we support, to other advertisers and publishers. Do our users understand we make money? Yes. Of course. We're a business, and we have contact with our users. Nobody seems confused by this. Also, the donations posted on our site are donations (not commissions).

    You may not like our business model, and I respect that. But we are transparent, and accusing us of being otherwise is unfair.

    Most affiliate sites don't use directly networks links or afsrc=1. You have no way of knowing it's an affiliate link, does it mean you're stealing from us?

    Zeus:

    In Firefox, we look at the whole click-trail. So, if you pass through a click counter at anytime, we ignore it.

    IE only allows us to view on click and on complete, so we check both of those and the affsum. That's the only information the browser gives us access to.

    Bill, there is absolutely no mention of commissions in your FAQ. I did manage to find it in your TOS though, way to bury it in a document that no-one reads.

    Why would you assume that users wouldn't be interested in where the "donations" are coming from. I'm sure many would be appalled to find out that others are losing portions of their income in order for them to "support" their favorite charities. It's pretty obvious that everything on your site was written very carefully to mislead users into thinking that there was some altruistic intent on your part. You don't think users are interested in where the "donations" come from? Great, post the real information on your home page without glossing over it and let them decide. If they're truly not interested it won't matter.

    And Bill, the "donations" on your site ARE A PERCENTAGE OF YOUR COMMISSIONS. Call it what you want, if you don't receive a commission, you don't make a "donation".

    Rematt:

    I think we're discussing two separate but related issues here:

    1. Are we stealing traffic.
    2. How we explain what we do to site users.

    As for the first: If there is anyway technically possible to detect an affiliate link, our plug-ins don't capture the traffic. I'll go one step further here. If you can show us any case where we are overwriting your clicks and can give us anything in your links that we can identify them by, we'll add those rules to our plug-ins. (Also, for the record, if an advertiser doesn't want to be included in our software redirects, we exclude them.)

    As for the second: You're right, we don't specifically explain affiliate marketing in our FAQs. We say that we receive money from our merchants for traffic driven to their sites.

    There's also the reality of my business. Our competition is iGive, GiveClicks, One Cause, etc. Shoppers are only going to use one of our sites, and it's the one that is easiest to use. That means I need to do everything I can to match or exceed what they offer, ensure that I'm not hijacking clicks from other publishers, and make sure that we're respecting advertisers whose policies don't allow software redirects (or otherwise request that we don't include them in those). My team (all three of us) have put a huge amount of time into meeting all three of these.

    If you don't know how to properly screen and identify affiliate traffic then you shouldn't be in business because the networks make it RIDICULOUSLY easy - in fact they hand you the information. Please don't give us the we this or that if we know how to id the links - that's just Bullpucky.

    We do follow all the information from the networks. That's our whole point. I simply saying that, if anyone can find a case where we have missed anything, we will fix it.

    Ok ... let's see you stand behind it then - I want to see you offer a $10K bounty to any affiliate who identifies a case. Maybe, just maybe we'll believe it, and maybe just maybe your system will be tested to really see. Oh and a stipulation of the $10K bounty can't include non-disclosure - there is already "testers" who find much shoot but can't or won't post because of their "NDA"
    Continued Success,

    Bill I have to go along with Haiko on this issue. It's not up to the affiliate to police your plug-in and ensure that it's compliant with network and merchant TOS. Since the very nature of the beast allows affiliates to change the functionality of their plug-ins on the fly, this would very likely be an effort in futility. However, when others have been caught overwriting cookies, the universal defense has been that it was a software glitch. Go figure, glitches always seem to be in the favor of the software affiliate.

    The fact that a few merchants here on ABW have removed you from their programs since the start of this thread leads me to believe that you possibly aren't as up front with these merchants as you should be. Perhaps the assumption should be made that merchants aren't aware of your business model and a more overt attempt should be made of informing them PRIOR TO ADDING THEM TO YOU PLUG-IN.

    Bill it's quite possible that One Cause could be the first software affiliate that is 100% on the up and up. If that's the case then it's unfortunate that you've been painted with the same brush as some of the slime-ware out there. However, as long as you're not 100% upfront with your users about who you are and how you're funded (and yes, you claim to represent charitable organizations and should be held to a higher standard) and as long as there are merchants included in your plug-in that aren't aware of your business model then there will always be a certain amount of suspicion surrounding your business practices.

    Register.com is listed but we removed WeCare from the LinkShare program and it is not listed on the site as a merchant.

    We do follow all the information from the networks.
    Try following the information of the merchant and affiliates. Come up with a business model that doesn't rely on a toolbar, downloads or plugins and we will champion you.
