I wouldn't use them on any of my sites and if I had them on one of my sites I would remove them.
They are not the only costume merchant we have available to use on our sites.
There are 8 costume merchants just on CJ - not counting any other network.

So they've had some issues with rogue affiliates who mislead customers, and they've changed their acceptance policy and their PPC terms a bit. What is the problem?

The way I read this is that they are looking for a way to void halloween commisions after Oct 31st. I am no longer promoting them but I wanted to give a heads up to other affiliates so they can make their own call.MERCHANTS: Start showing your coupons directly on your site, that way your shoppers will stop leaving your site looking for them!!

I did read it. It says they "do not accept" applications from coupon affiliates any more.
It says that they ENCOURAGE affiliates to promoted the coupons they provide.
But "affiliates who advertise wrong or misleading promotions" may be removed from the program and have their commissions clawed back.
They are making a policy change to protect themselves from having to pay commissions to unscrupulous affiliates. This type of policy - removing bad players from the program - will also help to protect honest affiliates' cookies from being overwritten.

superCool is with davidh on this. It doesn't look sneaky, but maybe poorly worded and open to interpretation. They should explain it better but it doesn't look like anything to worry about. just superCool's opinion....
Have you had problems with them in the past?

I stopped promoting them a few year back when they went offline all of the time. I did start promoting them again this year but have since dropped them again. No I never had any problems with them but never really got a warm feeling about them either.
I just posted this to get other points of views on their new terms.
That's all sorry I posted.........MERCHANTS: Start showing your coupons directly on your site, that way your shoppers will stop leaving your site looking for them!! If not then remove your Coupon Box!!

Thanks for bringing Oya to my attention. Costumes is big for me and they're one of the few merchants that I haven't gotten around to adding links for.
Of two other costumes merchants I promote through Shareasale, one has a "no returns" policy, yet their reversal rate has always been out of this world. And their EPC is often less than $1.
The other one has great selection and the best prices on a lot of things, BUT a very high percentage of their offerings are in "pre-order" status; not in stock. Most customers are going to keep on looking and wind up paying Buycostumes the $2 or $3 difference for the security of knowing that their stuff is going to be in transit within 24 to 48 hours.
Oya Costumes' EPC is incredibly high for a costumes merchant. And with their current reversal rate of 0%, well.... thanks again for bringing them to my attention
