    What means more to you in a program where 3 out of 5 customers place an order every 30 days

    Buy them a new application and they'll be content for a day - Show them how to code... and they'll go into business for themselves.

    Show me the money!

    And the keys to the condo in Aruba.

    Cookies that last 365 days (or longer), and pay for all sales for that customer...just my opinion. If an affiliate knows they have the opportunity to make money, and continue making money, the program will be that much more successful...

    I didn't start looking at this forum that long ago, and the major affiliate program forums have different ways they can be accessed which doesn't come through the front door...

    Would that air fare to Aruba be first class?

    Just went through old records of non-commissionable sales and the number of sales posted in LS a few days after the click-through that are listed with reason "Return Days Exceeded" is astounding.

    There are some real pirates out there lol.

    That feature is brilliant as you can list all the merchants you won't be working with in the future on one page

    Thanks DPG - Great info for me to consider. Our program is new on Linkshare and I really want to be able to tailor it so that it makes sense and money for everybody. It's pretty obvious to me that my affiliates have to feel our program and relationship is not one-sided. I have only so many ways to structure a program. However, since I have elected to use discounts and premiums for enticing consumers I need to find the right balance between consumer discounts, premiums, commission levels, return days, bonus programs and ad budgets. The feedback in this forum is helpful in making those determinations.
