    Mods: If this belongs in Merchants Against Parasiteware or some other forum, please move.

    Received this pleasant e-mail in my CJ box today ---<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR> Affiliate Partners,

    We have recently been made aware of issues regarding ebates.com, and after careful review we have decided to terminate our relationship with Ebates.com, effective immediately.

    The reason for this is that they are taking commissions from legitimate affiliates that generate new sales with their Moe Money application from sales they did not generate directly. Please note that affiliates are free to do with their commissions as they please (within reason), including giving some of this back to their customers. However, if affiliates try to divert revenue from other legitimate affiliates, we will do our best to control this.

    Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions regarding this policy.

    Regards,

    IMHO, this is the most we can ask. Sites are certainly welcome to offer rebates or other incentives. The true evil is the overwriting cookies from sales generated by someone else. Good move based on sound principles. I sent them an e-mail congratulating them.

    BTW, I believe this confirms that eBates is, in fact, overwriting cookies. Gee, I wonder if the networks will do something about it before the holiday season hits full speed.

    I had a long talk with Nate today regarding ebates and an other thread on ABW.
    It just shows all merchants are not bad and it would be better for some affiliates to talk to their merchants.
