    Wow that's really unfortunate and I hate to see when Merchants do this kind of thing. Did they give any advance warning at least? An explanation? Sometimes business dictates hard decisions get made but that is quite a steep drop in earnings - I hope they at least contacted you first.

    See that one too. It's tough enough to go with 5%. 1%? It is beyond ridiculous . No way I will keep promoting them. Bye-bye, Stroller Depot.

    Think them auto-approving affiliates led to this... 33% reversal is unusually high for this category, guessing a lot TM leeching traffic and/or fraudulent orders turned them off. Happens when programs are on auto-approve.

    There's a better way to clean up... clear out the bad guys or pay them 1%, then take care of your content affiliate base. Sounds like bad management. You can't tell me a 5% commission rate was breaking them.

    Why have an affiliate program at all? Business must be really bad. Too bad it's about to get worse. (Most) Affiliates won't stand for this...

    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.

    Word. Auto-approving affiliates is usually the 1st sign of bad management.
