    I don't know if we just noticed this but any time you select any shoe (even before it is in your cart), zappos now has a fairly prominent box on the right column that says, "Call our 24-hour toll-free order hotline!" in red letters.

    I further noticed that when clicking on the link, which pulls up the phone number that there is absolutely no means of designating an affiliate who brought them to Zappos in the first place.

    I don't know when this was put in place, but we have noticed a significant drop in sales over the past month or two with them.

    Perhaps if we were to approach Jack, their AM, collectively we might get some change in this procedure?

    Merchants are very adept on diversion/leakage tactics like this as they seek out way to NOT pay commissions. I'm sure the spin is the BHO's are getting too many shoe sales and they need to cut back somewhere.

    If zappos would notice that BHOs steal commissions from their own website they probably would act in other ways. If zappos will not end this phone selling issue, I, and hopefully a lot of other affiliates will leve them.

    I don't think the box is too prominent. I couldn't find it at first. Hopefully the customer will be the same way, focused on the shoe...

    I just looked at Zappos and agree with connie.
    I dont think it will hurt very much but I will be keeping a eye on it.
