    A New Kind of Affiliate Leak
    Not sure if this is the correct forum but it seems right to me...

    'Just received an invitation to join a program. Started the initial "look-see" and what is the first thing I see on the page? It was a nice big ad encouraging me to join the service through the App Store. This is a new one for me. I doubt that they are commissioning sales through that entry point.

    Its worth asking the merchant if they are. If they don't answer or answer NO then would tell them bye bye!

    Honesty, I just declined the offer to join. There are too many great merchants out there to mess around with marginal ones...

    .. and this should serve as a reminder to affiliates to take a good look at the merchant site before you start promoting!

    Leaks come in all shapes & sizes.

    I think it goes a long way to mention an merchant by name so others can avoid them. Send it to me and I will post.

    Well this is odd... I went to CJ to get the proper name of the merchant and the program is no longer there. It was a personal fitness coaching service... I guess my "spidee-sense" was spot-on.
