    I want to know more about ebates, obviously they steal our commissions, I have noticed today, several of my top performing merchants are with ebates, I do not know how long they ahve been with ebates, but my sales have slowed in the last few months.

    I want to know how they give their visitors 6% or whatever off????

    does the merchant give them a special code? or do ebates do it, cause they make so much money, that it is worthwile?
    I want to know some more details before i email my offending merchants, and tell them i am off, etc.

    Thanks for any info, i am quite new to this parasite thing,

    Tamalyn,

    Ebates does such "high volume" that they get a higher commission rate from the merchants and then, inturn, split a small portion of it with the consumer.

    Damn shame so many electronics and computer product merchants are willing to starve their value add affiliates while enriching those who like eBates who have no content or pre-sell activity beyond some hyped "incent offer. Only way to end this death spiral of affiliate marketing is to restrict all affiliates to generate their impressions and clicks from their own registered domains.
