    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>Dear Cardservice International publisher,

    You are receiving this message because Cardservice International has changed their commission rates. These changes will go into effect on 11/11/01.

    The current commission rates are:

    Pay-per-sale: $200 or 0%
    Pay-per-lead: $4

    The new commissions rates will be:

    Pay-per-sale: $0 or 0%
    Pay-per-lead: $4.0

    If you have a custom commission agreement that is different than the network rate, you will not be affected by these changes.
    If you any questions, please contact the advertiser directly.

    Best regards,

    You know, I've been looking for a good reason to drop them. I don't send them much, but since the leads went up from $1.5 to $4.00, all my leads have been reversed.

    Okay, that's one problem, but the worse part is that they never answer my emails asking what "invalid lead" means.

    Time to get them off of the page on merchant accounts.

    webmistress,

    The weird part is that Jack Kimball (Sr. VP) is in charge of the program and has always been responsive on the sales side, well at least he was when I got my merchant account there :confused:

    Does any one know a GOOD merchant setup company that has a real commission?

    Just Got off the phone with Jack, it was very informative and I have GREAT NEWS!

    FACTS:
    1. Over 50% of the leads they recieve are bogus (from unscrupulous affiliates to get the $4 per)
    2. The way thier business works it is a logistical nightmare to track the sales because most of the follow up is via telephone.
    3. They are aware of the negative good will that all the charge backs have caused but they really get swamped with BS leads but they want to pay for real leads.
    4. They don't want to take advantage of affiliates by not crediting them with sales on phone orders so they changed to a per lead program.

    GREAT NEWS:
    He said we can go to http://www.expandyourbusiness.com and copy anything and everything to create our sales page(s) and GET THIS! copy the forms and have them go to yourself!! then you email them to him and you have complete control over the tracking and ask him what happened with X, Y or Z lead at the end of the month. From there he will either cut a check directly to you or force a payment via CJ.

    So I return to my original position with Cardservice International and Jack Kimball they are helpfull and dedicated to our mutual success.

    Now this is a GOOD MERCHANT!<IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/ubb/icons/icon14.gif> <IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/ubb/icons/icon14.gif> <IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/ubb/icons/icon14.gif> <IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/ubb/icons/icon14.gif> <IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/ubb/icons/icon14.gif>
