I applied as an affiliate to Hour Power Watches a week ago. The program is marked "Auto Approval" so there should not be any problems, right? WRONG!

I spent time using their datafeed to setup a PHP store. Today I received an email from the merchant, telling me that I am now DECLINED.

No explanation from the merchant, just I am DECLINED. I emailed them for an explanation, pointing out that their program is marked AUTO APPROVAL.

We review sites every couple of weeks that come into our affiliate program and make the final decision on sites at that time.
Can someone at SAS explain to me why this merchant is allowed to use the AUTO APPROVAL tag, since they are obviously being deceptive?
