    Haiko,

    Wow, where did you find this? I've been working on my USOutdoor site today and never saw anything at their site, nor did I receive an email from them. It was up and running earlier today I beleive.

    Ironically, I did send them an email very early this morning (1 AM) asking if they could update their feed as I was finding some items out of stock. Gee, hope this is not my fault. LOL

    Hopefully their AM will stop by here and let us know more of what is going on. I've dealt with him by email and have been very pleased with the way they deal with publishers.

    Haiko,

    Thanks. That is the only message I could see and I was wondering where you read the other.

    Guess I'll go work on another site for a few days.

    Hi Ron,

    Why send your traffic to a blank website when BackcountryStore.com is converting traffic to sales at an all time high? We have reliable servers that handled millions of page views this Holiday season without failing and we just ordered 5 more just to be sure our site is always live. Our website can handle a tremendous traffic load without slowing down, which means your traffic always has the potential to turn into revenue. In fact, our overall sales this December were up 166% from one year ago and sales through the affiliate program grew by more than that.

    Your conversion rate with us this year has been through the roof. We just need to get more traffic coming in to really see your commissions increase. I know you have a dedicated site for us already but please consider switching all of your outdoor apparel and equipment links from US Outdoor to BackcountryStore.com. We have the infrastructure and inventory to turn your clicks into commissions.

    Regards,

    Bryan

    Nice...very nice. Just shut down and don't tell anyone. I hope everyone drops them and promotes their competition...it would serve them right!
