    Mason Companies shuts down three programs
    Mason Companies is shutting down three of their five programs on CJ effective July 27, 2012.

    Right before the back-to-school rush...

    1. AuditionsShoes.com
    2. Mason Shoe - Mason Easy Pay
    3. Masseys


    No word on:

    1. Maryland Square
    2. ShoeMall
    Salty kisses, Sandy toes, and a Pirate's heart...

    Its 5 stores:

    1. Mason Easy Pay
    2. Masseys
    3. K Jordan
    4. BA Mason
    5. AuditionsShoes

    Sad, I have been working with one of their store for 7 years. Wonder what changed their mind.

    Thanks for the update - had not been working with #3 and #4, just the other five.

    Paying for seven programs?
    Too many duplicate products?
    Too many to manage?

    Maybe they are going somewhere else? I also like these companies. They'll be missed.

    Shoppers determine what has value and they like coupons. Stop manipulating who set the cookie just because you do not like coupon and promotional sites.

    Not good. I thought mine was due to the nexus issue in CA but it appears to be broader than that. Possibly switching networks or do you think they're shutting down entirely? I sent a note to the AM to find out more...

    Why anyone would leave CJ for LS is beyond me.

    I have no idea, but this is happening quite frequently as of late - Guess the Google is killing off the parasite / SERP spamming affiliates and LS must be offering lower fees to get merchants and their affiliates to move. Some of our merchants are offering higher commissions on LS after the move...

    Also depends on the health of the program and minimum monthly fees. Probably some wheeling and dealing.

    Right, I forgot to mention that. Also, I asked if they are adding the others but have not heard back...
