    I missed when they changed this - but now on every item you click, right below the add to cart button and prominently displayed:

    To order by phone, call 1-877-432-9675

    I understand the balance between customer friendly and affiliate friendly, but they have never moved towards affiliate friendly. They were always a poor converter, but I think it is time to yank all their links and move to gogamer.

    Thanks for bringing that to my attention! Not a good thing! Wonder how long that has been there!

    That's interesting. I was just looking through here trying to find a clue as to why my EBGames sales dropped through the floor. Click throughs are up over 50% but sales are about 10%. Of course, WhenU popping up when you get to the EBGames site doesn't help. How much longer are the Parasiteware affiliates allowed to "legally" steal our commissions before LinkShare cuts them off?

    Who is in charge of the GoGamer affiliate program and how do you all rate it?

    ebworld is on linkshare, hence the post here. But thanks to linkshare's great merchant search, you will never find them searching on any word, just go to the right category. But i would avoid them, gogamer converts about 500x better - and that is not an exaggeration.

    Hmm, I may check out Gogamer. Last month for EBGames: 2,514 Click-Throughs, $17.44 commission with an O/C% of 0.56%. Not worth the time, actually.

    For ebworld, I converted 1 in every 594 clicks.
    Gogamer 1 in every 39 clicks.

    Hmmm... tough choice.

    They are on cj as compuexpert. Which stinks. I am sick of CJ, but they still have some merchants you can't get anywhere else. As far as I know, gogamer is the only video game merchant that converts for me anymore.

    ps. Can't wait for Glenn to call me a CJ patsy for promoting a CJ merchant.

    1 in 39 is pretty good. Did CJ ever get their datafeed issues worked out? I got their original feeds and they were too difficult to work with and was waiting for them to fix it. While waiting for them to fix it, they wanted me to pay them a monthly fee so I stopped using CJ altogether until they had a usuable feed.

    Does Gogamer have a usable feed?
