    SellFire is completely down
    At least at this moment, the complete Sellfire site is down. No response from any part including the home page.

    From here it looks as if they are gone.

    Web pages with sellfire shops will not fully load - not just the shops, but the rest of the pages as well.

    Well, the Sellfire site is back up and web pages with Sellfire shops are loading, but the shops are not loading.

    I just love the torture room....

    Yes, they are. I had subscribed early on but the handwriting's been on the wall for quite some time. I bailed out many moons ago.

    The subscription cost is nothing - compared to the damage done when customers land on a non-functioning site. Maybe even worse is the damage done if a search engine attempts to index a non- functioning page. The long range SEO ramifications are, of course, speculation, but there has to be a negative impact.

    Sellfire has some very staunch supporters here. I think the owner owes his subscribers an explanation. (I'm not a Sellfire user.) Hiding out is not acceptable professional behavior.

    The last time they even visited ABW was on August 12, 2013. You sure aren't going to get any answers from them here.

    Phil, is their forum even paid for now. If not, their forum at ABW needs to be closed so they can't screw anymore affiliates.

    BB - I've inquired - awaiting answer, but I can't imagine that they're paying and not using it.

    I reached out to the two contacts listed in their forum to see if they went out of business. If so then they may not answer.

    It was rather offensive to see them give an innocuous answer to a recent question and ignore my plea for help from two months ago.

    They stopped paying for the forum a month ago and it will likely be closed very soon.

    I just deactivated SellFire in all of our programs. If they aren't supporting it, we're not going to be attached to it.
