Hi there - newbie here - wondering who can tell me what criteria must be met in order to get on the "Trusted Merchants" list found on the homepage of ABW?
A few months back when I was first introduced to the wide world of affiliate marketing I was shown a list by my predecessor (who is no longer here). That list was of "trusted merchants" and it had been posted within a thread on this forum somewhere by an affiliate.
Our site name was on it.
I cannot for the life of me find that thread now, and whoever had started it had said they would be monitoring merchant sites and adding to the list as they went along. Does anyone here know what I'm talking about or where I can find that thread?
Many thanks to all who respond.

Thanks to all! This forum is awesome!
Ok - so I believe we meet all of the above criteria and I have now taken steps to check out the ATRUSTEDMERCHANT site. Had a few questions along the way and tried to use their CONTACT US form, but unfortunately it doesn't appear to be working. Getting an error message upon clicking Send. Has anyone else encountered this problem?
Moving right along...
What exactly do affiliates consider to be a "fair and ethical cookie duration?" I would assume that the duration would be one which provides the consumer enough time to visit my site a few times before making a purchase and still allow the directing affiliate to obtain credit for the end result, but in terms of numbers what does that look like?
P.S. - I found the list I mentioned in the first post of this thread - it's the Parasite Free Merchants list and it's a sticky found here:

Thanks as always!
