    LA Furniture circumventing affiliate linking?
    Hi all!

    I recently imported LA Furniture's data feed into a website that does real well with furnishings. I had a user email us wanting to know if an item had free shipping that was listed on our site from LA Furniture. I clicked the link on our site and added the item to their shopping cart to find the shipping cost and got this message: "This item may not be purchased online. Please call (866) XXX-XXXX to place your order".

    Oversight, or circumventing affiliate linking?

    This item is in their data feed but not available through their cart so that means I've sent them free traffic if the customer orders via the phone number.

    Yes, some do go to the shopping cart but you can't tell what products will until you add them to the cart. If they had a field in the data feed to identify those products that only sold via a phone call I could remove them before importing.

    I'm going to go through the products and see how many get bumped to a phone order, but I am leaning towards just removing them from the site altogether.
