    Overstock.com International Affiliate email
    I received this earlier today from Overstock.com (international program):

    "In accordance with the existing international program terms, the cost of doing business across borders (i.e. increased shipping charges, duties, customs, and additional taxes) require us to offer commissions on international products at lower tiers than commissions offered on our domestic products."

    Now help me out, they want to pay me a base rate of 1.0% (currently 0.5%) instead of 7% because of "increased shipping charges, duties, customs, and additional taxes" when these things are usually paid by the customer? I don't get it... And this after they just set-up a separate international program in March and now they are re-integrating with the domestic program? It sounds like Overstock is a prime candidate for expiry...

    For every $10,000 sold you would get a whopping $100. It's not worth the time and effort!

    Thanks for the responses - I was thinking along the same lines but I just needed some other points of view.
