    GirlyChecks.com Affiliate Program Being Transitioned to the ChecksOnSale.com Porgram
    I just received the email below. Anyone know what's going on?

    Effective March 9th, the GirlyChecks.com domain will no longer be able to operate as an affiliate program. However, the Girly Checks product line, in its entirety, will be transitioned over the next few days to its new home on the domain ChecksOnSale.com.

    IMO a much better domain name for them to change to. I hope the transition goes smoothly. I use the datafeed through PopShops and sometimes these types of changes goes well, other times they don't.

    "IMO a much better domain name for them to change to."

    Yep, I remember when they first launched, pointing out the name didn't make much sense, so hopefully the transition does go smooth.

    They need to make sure that tracking from GirlyChecks URLs AUTOMATICALLY forward and track to the new domain.

    The rest of their email stated that they are working with SAS to ensure a smooth transition.

    Yes, read the emails. Just despise short notice on these kind of things...

    Hello all -

    I don't post here often but am in charge of overseeing this change. The short notice is very unfortunate and beyond our control, but we will do everything in our power to make sure the transition is smooth for affiliates. Please reach out if you have any issues, we are making ourselves available to anyone with questions - hopefully not problems - during the transition.

    Well the interesting thing is

    They have changed girlychecks back to an affiliate website

    Are they no longer using that as their #1 site and checksonsale is their new one?

    Why is girlychecks an affiliate site now?

    Would like some clarification I have to remove all my links from girlychecks from site over the next couple of days

    They usually see it coming but, if they gave you a month notice, they would lose a month of income. easier to let affiliates take the hit than them. ( standard business practice )

    I think they have done that. Checking my links today they all go to their new site and I notice I am enrolled in their program automatically in shareasale

    So question is. To save me a ton of time removing links

    Are these redirected ones able to earn me commission or do I have to replace them?

    You need to go through and change all the product image url's to reflect the change of domain; all of the images are now "broken" as hotlinking has been disabled. As far as links go, any text/banner or raw datafeed links that are based on product ID are now directing to the new site. If you made custom links that include destination url you need to re-do those to direct to the new domain.

    Bill and Jill have left the merchant world and returned to the affiliate side. They ended the Girly Check-Carousel Check relationship, retaining the Girly Checks domain, which is now an affiliate site. Carousel Checks has transitioned the previous Girly Checks affiliate program to the new domain ChecksOnSale.com.

    Is there a reason why Bill doesn't respond?

    Bill discussed it all here.

    He might be off on another cruise.

    It's only been a few hours.


    OK - I am on dry land. Haven't left (yet), but we did go for a long lunch at a brand new restaurant that needs to be included in one of our "local" sites (which was launched back in 1999 - and needs a major facelift).

    The Dawg summed up the gist of what occurred and davidh listed some of the changes that need to be made by (only) a few affiliates. Thank you, gentlemen.

    Also, for those of you who may have missed the initial announcement, CLICKY HERE.

    I just posted a short summary with additional details, CLICKY HERE.
