    Is having forums a negative when looking to get accepted by merchants?
    Just wondering, would the mere fact of having forums on your site be sufficient grounds for turning down your application?

    I know a few merchants do this, but how common is it?

    Thanks

    I don't understand why a merchant would turn this down as long as the Forum's focus is on the merchants products.

    There is nothing better than traffic (Visitors) that are actually interested and actively participating in the discussions of these products.

    You were rejected?

    Yes I was rejected from a particular merchant and I contacted the affiliate manager to determine why. He stated that as the reason, going on to say that they've actually been dropping current affiliates who host bulletin boards on their sites.

    I'm left wondering if this tends to happen at all or if it's just the one merchant in this case.

    I don't see the logic behind this, but Im sure they have a good reason. I know that our program jas no issues with this, but I can't comment on any of the other programs on the forum.

    If you are given the logic behind it, please do share

    And my advice is if you have traffic then find another merchant!!
