got this in email today:
I used to do really well w/them, and they always paid timely. I haven't really been pushing them lately though. Still, too bad.

Dear Affiliates,

First of all, we want to thank each and every one of you for all of your support in promoting our business over the past four years. It's been a wonderful experience for us and we are happy to have had the opportunity to get to know many of you personally. You are awesome marketers!

After careful consideration, As Seen On TV/BuyItOnTheWeb has decided to end our affiliate program and discontinue the ecommerce portion of our business. All of our LinkShare offers will expire on April 10th, 2002. In the interim, we are no longer approving new affiliates, so you can use this time wisely to get every sale you can on our popular Guthy-Renker products.

All commissions will be paid on sales through April 9, 2002, at the regularly scheduled payment time. We hope that you will continue to promote our products as close to or through April 9 as possible. However, we do realize that many of you advertise on Overture and wanted to give you ample notice of the change.

Many factors figured into this decision, but at no time was the value of our affiliate network taken lightly. We understand the hard work that went into every sale you generated and hope that the experience was as good for you as it was for us.

Our sincerest wishes for your continued success on all future endeavors.

The BuyItOnTheWeb Team
