    Thumbs down Avon - Reduces Affiliate Relationships
    Just in time before Black Friday / Cyber Monday / Holiday Season

    Avon has recently made the business decision to move to a private program and reduce our affiliate relationships. We regret to inform you that at this time, Avon has chosen not to continue our affiliate partnership. Be assured that this is not in any way due to a violation of our partnership terms; this change is driven by modifications to our business strategy.

    On behalf of the entire Avon team, we¿d like to thank you for your partnership with us, and assure you that you will be paid out for any commissions earned prior to your date of removal.

    Best regards,

    Avon Affiliate Team

    Hmmmmm .....

    I just got that email as weel and there was no prior notice. Oh well. There are many other merchants to focus on.

    I haven't got one form Avon Canada yet. I wonder if they will move in the same direction.

    I sent this reply, sure to fall on deaf ears.

    "That's surprising, since we're moving into the busiest time of year for shoppers. I'm not sure if this decision will go down as the soundest business/finance move. Actually Finance is my day job and I'm perplexed at your decision. I run a finance department and would never advise this decision during the busiest shopping season of the year".

    Shoppers determine what has value and they like coupons. Stop manipulating who set the cookie just because you do not like coupon and promotional sites.

    You may be right.

    I got it also, deleted them from the database and went ahead and got rid of Avon Canada while I was at it. Thinking of sending an email to Avon CA letting them know I'm reducing my affiliate relationships to focus more on MaryKay.... do they have one?

    We carry Avon and have yet to get the e-mail. We have had a few sales here and there nothing on a regular basis.

    I can only hope that in a week from now they will be sending you an email saying something like the usual bs: After close consideration we have determined that our decision to release you may have been slightly hasty. We would like to extend a welcome back for you and have manually reactivated your account, again we apologize for our regretful decision a week ago.

    Since they probably won't do that, affiliates close your links so that they aren't still rolling in sales even though you aren't getting commissions!

    I have not received the email yet. It is my perception that Avon is moving to eRepresentatives for their online approach to marketing.

    Just saw this thread. I got the same e-mail a couple of weeks ago, right before thanksgiving. yes, odd (and convenient) timing indeed. Took down all their links right away.
