    Seeking Feedback on SAS Cigar Merchant Tinderbox
    I always try to find out as much as I can about a merchant before expending a lot of effort adding links and promoting, especially when I plan to use a datafeed, which takes some work (just trying to stay away from flakes, which seem to be everywhere in this business).

    So I would like to know about SAS cigar merchant TINDERBOX. Anything anybody can tell me about Tinderbox would be useful the product, quality of customer service, how they respond to your concerns as an affiliate, etc.

    Any comments would be highly appreciated. Regards,

    Carlos

    While I have no experience with this merchant or with tobacco-product sales, I wanted to comment just to alert you to the fact that many web publishers consciously choose not to carry advertising from merchants who primarily sell certain categories of lawful products, such as tobacco products (or alcohol, or drug paraphenalia, or contraceptives, etc.).

    Assuming that you've considered the reasons why some folks choose not to carry such advertising, and you still choose to carry this type of performance-based advertising on your web site, then you should keep in mind that even if no web publishers respond helpfully in this forum, that's not necessarily an indication of problems with the merchant, but instead might simply indicate that the web publishers who do work with the merchant aren't active in this forum.

    There are some other online forums that focus on specific segments of the affiliate marketing industry that are either disfavored or excluded here (most notably, porn and gambling). Alas, my experience has been that those forums (and most of their participants) have very low credibility.

    Finally, you might have increased your potential responses if you used a "thread title" that included the merchant name (e.g. "Seeking Feedback about SAS Merchant Tinderbox"). You might ask a moderator to change the thread title.

    Are their numbers showing you something unusual? Lots of reversals? The problem with asking a question like yours is that if they convert very well no one is likely to tell you that.
