    BUMP!

    Wanted to bump this as I consider it a very serious issue. A $5 petco.com gift certificate, geez, thats about as useful as a condom made of sandpaper. I had seen the email but didn't notice the link since I didn't plan to respond anyway.

    Not until they(you) start paying commissions on all orders, not only on non-prescription ones, stop working with Ebates!

    A third party survey that asks for an SSN is a real blunder on Petco's part. I hope that LinkShare slaps Petco's hand for the transgression because it was not clear which parties were taking the survey.

    The survey looked like something that you had to fill out to join LinkShare, and may have been a misrepresentation of LinkShare.

    boom!

    petco and 1 800 pet meds terminated my affiliate relationship. Looks like I'll give my customers to petsmart :0).

    SamBay,
    If it were up to me, I would pay on *everything* - it would help my numbers
    Unforunately, due to Florida legislation, we are not allowed to pay commission on prescription items.
    Sorry

    Jason,
    I didn't terminate anything. If Linkshare did it automatically, let me know - I'd like to get it sorted out. Get in touch with me:
    airvin@1800petmeds.com
    Cheers,

    Let me know if you need anything at all.
    I'm kind of new at this, but trying to keep my ear to the ground
