GoDaddy became as a less paying affiliate program

In the past (before May 2013), GoDaddy was one of high paying affiliate for me in CJ. However, after they dropping the commissions for existing customers from 30% to 10% they are now one of the lowest paying affiliate program.
They also dropped their higher affiliate commissions for domain reseller plans and SSL certificates too.
Even though there are advertisers who pay around 5% or less, their sale value is higher. So we can make at least $1 per sale and most of them are allowing unlimited occurrences.
When we take new GoDaddy affiliate program commission structure, their sale values are lesser because they mainly sell domain names. Even new customers purchase domain names rather than web hosting services as their first purchase.
So we will get just few pennies per sale with the new structure. They even pay for the first occurrence only.
Here is the comparison of my Godaddy affiliate commissions.
April 2013 (with the old structure) - Total sale amount: $800.42 Affiliate commissions: $245.70
June 2013 (up to today with the new structure) - Total sale amount: $605.72 Affiliate commissions: $60.57
Huge difference. Disappointed with the new Godaddy affiliate commission structure which discourage me to promote them anymore.
