    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!!

    You would be amazed at the number of merchants that get told by the SEO department that that is a good idea and they communicate that to affiliates without checking with the affiliate department. Or they are so clueless they don't get why affiliates *won't* (and shouldn't) do this.

    My vote is that they are clueless!! They also provide affiliates a coupon link but if the affiliate uses the link then they drop their base commision on all sales to less then half the current rate!!!

    I'm glad you pointed this out because they accepted me into their affiliate program but now I don't want to bother if their links are no good.

    Maybe they just don't know what they're doing.
