I am doing a bit of research on ShopAtHome's toolbar application which they (SAHS) maintain is accepted by major networks and is on the up and up. I have noticed that the toolbar does the following:
- Overwrites Existing Affiliate Coupon Codes
- Redirects on search results (both PPC and Organic)
- Redirects on direct-type
When asked, SAHS stated that we could add a snippet of code with an "&asfrc=1" to all our links to block the toolbar from activating.
Does anyone have experience with this type of parameter? Does it work 100% of the time to disable the toolbar? Any insight is greatly appreciated.

I'm not sure that I know of ANY network that approves of the behaviors that you've described. And frankly, I have to agree with Herb, why should it be your responsibility to keep them honest?
SAH did not design a toolbar with the behaviors that you've described just for fun. They did it so that they could cheat merchants and other affiliates out of their commissions. I fail to see how they add any value.
I personally steer clear of any program that allows toolbar "affiliates".
