    Odd Requirements on Affiliate Application
    Was going to join a merchant program and got stuck on these mandatory questions on the application:

    How many sales per week do you plan on generating?*

    Uh... ideally a million. Realistically, I don't own a crystal ball!

    INSTANT MESSENGER
    ICQ *
    MSN *
    Skype *

    (The asterisks all mean mandatory)

    Really? I can't promote them without having instant messaging?

    Thought those were a little odd

    No, I didn't join the program.

    All My Best,
    Billy Kay

    Can I ask what network??? I am guessing the affiliate manager is under 20 years of age due to the fact that they think everyone has all three INSTANT MESSENGER's. I have non so I guess I can not apply as well
    MERCHANTS: Start showing your coupons directly on your site, that way your shoppers will stop leaving your site looking for them!! If not then remove your Coupon Box!!

    why the database?!?

    It's the AM's that should be suppling their point of contact. Not collecting others...

    wow, I don't think I've used ICQ since 2000!
    MSN is the most popular here.

    Looks like an old, in-house app. They always have a few silly questions. Let me guess, they also asked traffic volume...?

    I had applications that asked for my drivers license number, I hope no people actually gave it to them.

    Hey, stop trashing my program! JK This is actually silly. And ICQ? What about a Rolodex too?

    Some people....

    If you're interested ENOUGH, it might we worth contacting the merchant and letting them know that these are stopping your (and likely many others) from applying.
