    Hi Manesh,

    Welcome to ABW.

    If you provide us datafeed (either through merchandiser or directly) and reduce the payment threshold to $25, you will see good and active participation from ABW members.

    Best of luck!

    Do you have a JBT number and rating? Do you inventory jewelry or just act as a middleman passing on stock jewelry item orders to jewelry distributors for fulfillment.

    Looks like the items shown on the site are the normal triple keystone mass manufactured fair. I've delt with the NYC jewelry trade and can assure all here that 8-15% commission is chicken feed for the profit made by non-stocking jewelry buyer groups.

    This standard jewelry store stock can sell very well on the internet if priced below or at discount jewelry store prices. I think affiliates would do best with you guys if they only featured product links to items priced below CostCo or Zales. Contact Akiva for a merchantdising tool perfect for making this type mini-showcase display. Then publish here your average conversion ratio. # of clicks to produce one sale.

    Your terms sure makes your investment in affiliates a zero risk factor.

    ~ Visitor purchases
    Every time a visitor clicks on one of these LINKS to visit Szul.com, we will send you a referral fee or commission. Please note that there are certain circumstances in which we cannot track the visit and credit the sale. We encourage you to review these details in the terms and conditions section of the affiliate program agreement.

    ~ Rewards
    Every product purchased at Szul by a visitor who has been directed there by an affiliate will result in a commission of 8%-15% of the product sales price (before taxes and fees) to the referring affiliate.

    ~ Payment Cycles
    We offer our customers a 30-day money-back guarantee. Therefore, fees and commissions are paid 30 days after the end of each calendar quarter. Payments made to affiliates are net of any merchandise returns, shipping and handling fees, and taxes.

    Total quarterly sales of less than $50 will be rolled over and added to the following quarter's affiliate revenue total. Checks will be made to affiliates with at least $50 earned in a quarter.

    Hello,

    Thanks for your reply. You are very correct in the margins typical of traditional jewelry merchants. It is a generally accepted notion that jewelry, (along with apparrel, accessories,kitchen ware) etc. enjoy huge margins but the market has changed drastically online and Szul.com has been successful online for over 4 1/2 years because it has recognized the change and changed with the market.

    We manufacture all diamond and gemstone jewelry pieces seen online here onsite. We pride ourselves in being able to offer the best prices on high quality diamond and gemstone jewelry.

    We handle the entire order and all items or shipped from our facility here in New York.

    We pride ourselves on being able to offer the best pricing online. As an example, I encourage all to visit our Diamond Solitaire Earring collection and compare prices (these are available almost everywhere and can be easily compared). You'll find the pricing very aggressive and being that the items are housed here, we can guarantee 24 hour turnaround on most pieces (sizing etc may push it to 2 days on some designs).

    I definately understand your hesitancy and resistance and will get you conversion nyumbers etc. to build your confidence.

    We spend a lot of money and effort making sure our customers are happy and our pricing and structure make a 15% Share a true pass through because we believe in the life time value of a customer and extend this to our affiliates the best we can.

    I will admit, the risk factor is less on affiliate relationships but our compensation based on our pricing and online structure by no means chicken feed. The market is completely different online especially with higher end/quality products and Szul.com has been successful online for the past 4 1/2 years because we genuinly strive to understand the market and position ourselves so that we always offer the best value out there in an effort to prove and legitimize the Online Jewelry market as a whole.

    I am going to get you additional information to help build your confidence and please do let me know of any other questions etc. you may have.

    Thanks for your reply and speak to you soon.
