    Looks like more than just three. Got an email from gsi group this week taking a whole crew of programs with them. Seems to cite tracking issues as a factor. Not much detail on that score, but no surprise either, walking instead of talking.

    CJ must have had them tethers to all their BHO buddies and they had to leave to get some breathing room.

    Mike,

    You need to come up with something else to comment on.

    Hi Todd,

    Check out my new sig

    PeePee merchants with PooPoo policies allow our earnings to be flushed down the crapper.

    Why give parasites unlimited cookie durations and credit for sales where they divert our users and overwrite our cookies. PP merchants directly support what many consider unfair trade practices and thievery!

    Come on Todd. The GSI group of merchants performed miserably for years at CJ. No fault of CJ's beyond not verifying their kluged merchant aggregrator shopping cart couldn't parse the simple CJ reporting tag.

    Passing on tips from ABW to CJ merchants on how to increase their conversion ratios should be a CJ priority. Amazing how a change of AM's at the helm of programs jumps starts their programs rebirth. I see no need to leave CJ for a merchant to build a successful affiliate sales force. I just object to CJ getting involved in even recommending any BHO to their pool of merchants.

    NO merchant can honestly say that BHO's don't skew the results of normal affiliates. As the paychecks to CJ's GSI group of bread and butter affiliates dried up they found out the BHO's were doubling their commission expense by double dipping them on even their own e-mail and SE listings.

    What we have said all along that BHO's hurt this industry is true. No real value add -demands for higher commission rates -no branding ever -no domain bound pre-sell activity and no exposure at the point of attack ...the SE's. Parasites do not work for merchants ...they only interupt their shoppers at the point of sale unless they can hijack the traffic, swap their cookies or overwrite the Affiliate ID. The last 2 years GSI has been in bed with all known parasites and now choose to come clean.


    Maybe GSI would like to tell us why they chose to move to BeFree? Was it just part of the shakeup strategy?

    Hello,

    I wanted to clear up a few points made in this forum.

    1. Tracking is NOT a reason for our affiliate transition. We have a positive relationship with CJ and are on good terms.

    2. "Parasites" or "BHO Partners" also had nothing to do with the transition.

    There is no need to speculate the reasons for the change. However, I wanted to stress that the changes were in no way made because of any of the negative points brought up in this thread.
