    Networks List Merchants by State...Is This Helpful?
    1. Is it possible for the networks create a way for affiliates to find merchants by state or those who already have national tax implemented (I'm sure that's quite rare, maybe even non-existent.)?

    2. A list of international merchants with American aff programs who aren't affected? Is this such a situation?

    With the states going down one by one, affiliates need to find alternatives fast. They may have to branch out on current site concepts or create new ones, but at least they could have easy access to merchant aff programs that are in their state and a way to start planning ahead.

    The merchant info is already in the networks' databases...but are there legal or other issues with creating such lists...merchant permission, etc.?

    Would love to be able to search for merchants by specific criterion. However, I think each network would have to have a major overhaul to do so...

    Wasn't thinking something as complicated as that but much simpler.

    • Networks could set up a separate online directory with a list of states or zips + merchants or even simpler yet,
    • Create a PDF or .cvs file with a list of all merchants + state/zip. Doesn't have to include signup or other links...just keep it as a very simple reference list only, to help affs locate merchant programs in their state or to plan ahead during this nexus tax crisis.
    • Could be updated quarterly or whatever schedule the network thinks is feasible.

    We have access to Merchants address information on our network but we are Australian. Surely it would be easy for any network to show the Zip & State Information and allow it to be searched. This is standard information collected from merchants when the sign up to most networks. Most networks could easy set this up as a search-able category or drop down list of states.
