    Skye Associates LLC: beware merchants and affiliates!
    Skye Associates LLC "manages" a slew of merchants in the fashion and accessories niche. Majority of their programs found are on eBay EAN.

    If, as a merchant, you want to alienate (forever) your affiliates and destroy your reputation - then, by all means, use Skye Associates LLC.

    If, as an affiliate, you want to be alienated then go ahead and try to promote these cloned, dime-a-dozen, pre-fab merchant websites under the guise of being managed by Skye Associates LLC.

    Skye Associates LLC: You have no business being an "OPM" of any sort. Your person who answers the phone is rude, unintelligent, and just gives off the general impression she knows nothing about what it is your company does - I guess that's par for the course.

    Person, at Sky Associates LLC, overseeing the merchants on Ebay EAN doesn't return emails, doesn't return phone calls, and mysteriously is "in and out of the office".

    Merchants and Affiliates: BEWARE OF SKY ASSOCIATES LLC AND THEIR PRORAMS.

    All links removed from those programs...

    And some people think "an OPM is an OPM". A good example of why that just ain't so.

    FWIW the "contact info" in the PJ interface doesn't say anything about Skye Associates; it just lists them as "Affiliate Manager" in Maryland.

    True, but a quick online search with that address yields who they are.

    Going to Sky Associates' website confirms their relationship.

    I sent multiple emails to the addresses in eBay EAN/PJ, sent an email via Sky Associates' website (contact us), and yesterday had to pick up the phone.

    All was fruitless...

    FWIW - The main contact at Skye Associates also listed GSI Commerce on her LinkedIn page.

    All together, now:

    I'm just pointing that out so that prospective affiliates know when they're checking merchant info before signing up.

    On a side note... "Affiliate Manager" and "Affiliate Management Team" are two of my least favorite people to work with. I'd rather work with a real person with a real name and a real email address and a real phone number.

    Amen Michael... never could understand why merchants wouldn't personalize affiliate management... it's a relationship business right ?
