Do merchants like Ebates? If yes, why?
As I can see it from here, once a customer finds, let's say, and the customer is willing to buy a left shoe to wear it as a hat, ebates pops up and shows him a better way to the same
So, with or without ebates, zaxxos already had the customer. But WITH ebates zaxxos must pay them the commission. So why would zaxxos want to have ebates as their affiliate? Ebates didn't bring them the new customer, but just met him in the doorway.
When my cookie is overwritten, I don't get a commission, but the merchant still has to pay. So do they like it?
