    Actually, I'll miss half.com, as an affiliate I've gotten a few commissions from them, and I've used it myself from time to time.

    The problem with Half.com's affiliate program is that ebay and half.com IDs are now the same. You register for one you register for another.

    Half.com is also running ebay listings on their search result pages.

    I wonder how much business we loose by sending customers there that are either already ebay customers or who don't join half but bit on ebay through half's pages.

    It's like all the effort Amazon has used to deflect commisions by encourging visitors not to by from commisionable sources.

    Which part? Amazon? Amazon pushes "pick up in store" for many items. You don't get commisions for those.

    I also had some a$$ merchant (Market Place) sell an item at $.01. I assume they make their bucks on S&H. I made ZERO on the transaction.

    Affiliate support has so far not addressed how this can be.

    Think about how many ways Amazon deflects commisonable sales and then think how much better things would be if they'd focus on selling THEIR products.
