    NO, they aren't converting very well for my automotive site BUT looky here what a "value-added" merchant they are to have listed on your site~!

    Maybe the fact that you have to provide a zipcode before you can get anywhere is a big turnoff... I know the fact that I can't deep link turns ME off..

    Stick with J.C Whitney. I've had their autoparts aggregrator links up for 2 years with only 1 sale recorded. Cross linking sister sites and operating on the GSI (Global Sports) group with very poor conversions. Horrible database driven e-catalog and normal shoppers need more details than the sparce info on the parts the DB provides. Therefore the huge # of 800 calls to confirm the right part.

    I'm not sure what it is with PartsAmerica, but they don't convert well for me either. I don't really promote them very much, I just provide a link to their site on a page with links to other auto parts sources.

    It might be their site design, who knows. I find JCW's site easier to navigate, and better looking. Just my opinion, though.
