    I put up the links to products I got from EBGames and I get impressions but I have never gotten a sale. And I added new games, now I do not get any click throughs. Something is wrong with the links I think. I put up the latest, newest games, I get impressions but do not get credit for click throughs or sales. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_mad.gif[/img]

    I have always heard how bad the conversions are for EBGames so i decided to test for myself. I figured its the Christmas selling season and i wanted to see for myself if they convert. I have nothing but a simple banner and text link and have made a couple of sales.

    Sales are everywhere, sales are mine.

    fwiw -
    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>If approved for the program, you will earn a 5% commission on all shipped sales (excluding video/handheld game consoles) generated directly from your site. Think about it.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    Absolutely recockulous.

    I suppose this is because of consoles' fixed pricing, but, its still a sale.

    There is a list of 131 items you don't earn commission on. THey are all consoles, though. So, if you are promoting games themselves I guess you should get credit.

    Video game consoles carry a 35-42% wholesale discount for resellers. Games are at 50%. The 5% sure wouldn't kill them...greed will.

    Are you telling me that EB, Walmart etc pays at most $130 for a shiny new Xbox/PS2/etc? ($199 retail)

    I don't believe that....
