    Warning: Grainger Commission Rate Going to 0% - Details...
    Received notification via eBay Enterprise that Grainger is turning off commissions to run a "test". So their program is still up, but they aren't paying commissions. Needless to say, this is way uncool... I don't think they are turning off everyone's commissions, but somehow I have fallen into a focus group.

    You know, Harbor Freight Tools did something similar on 9/1/2015. I don't think they ever came back online.

    This whole, we are going to run a test thing, hang on while we stop payouts, seems ridiculous. Why don't they have better analytics that help them make the right decisions without harming their affiliate channel?
    Merchants, any data you provide to Google Shopping should also be in your affiliate network datafeed. More data means more sales!

    Totally uncool.

    I remember a couple of other merchants were doing this "temporary test with 0 commission" thing as well, couldn't find the emails and don't remember who they are.

    My answer to them is no, I won't keep your links up while you are doing test and I'm getting 0 commission. You are gone from my site, now and forever.

    They do not value affiliate traffic.

    But, I'll bet, there will still be a ton of affiliates promoting them. The "name brands" can get away with not caring about affiliates.
