    Hobbytron deactivated me. No reason or warning was given. I emailed Troy...but no response. Anyone else have this happen?

    Losing Hobbytron can't be a big deal. From what I have seen others say on here, I have a great conversion rate with them but it is still pitiful in comparison to other merchants.
    They chopped their commissions on all the kits, rc cars and such to some ridiculuos amount like 2 or 3%. This is quite a drop from the across the board 10% they once paid.
    Some day we will have a real online Hobby Shop to work with and them Hobbytron will go away. Their datafeed is as pitiful as their conversion is. One would think that by now they might have a clue , but I guess not.

    They let affiliates go that haven't had a sale in a while because their EPC goes in to the toilet. Currently below $1 for 7 days
    3 month EPC $2.54 USD
    7 day EPC $0.92 USD
    Maybe they should take a long look how to better convert by offering their affiliates the tools they need instead of being so quick to cut them loose.

    Troy seems nice enough, but I am afraid whoever he answers to is the truly clueless one. Or maybe they make enough money and don't need anymore.
