    Mine were increasing nicely until a month or so ago, now they're much worse. No idea why.

    They're very normal here, in fact they're recovered after a big drop last month.

    NOw I also notice it:-( since about a week, zappos sales turned bad. Before that, this month, it seems fair though.

    Hopefully the bad week sales show up much delayed or ro..

    I think more than anything the low sales have to do with updates from the search engines. Both Yahoo and Google are really trying to git rid of duplicate content from their SERPS. If you use datafeeds or individual product links without changing the descriptions and adding content, your pages are moving way down in the search engines.

    i actually saw baaad sales given the same traffic levels as before, incl. from google. but last 2 days it has been much better again.. better than usual even.

    I see zappos stepping out of handbags? selections have been decimated..

    Zappos sales are down and the few I got are reversed. The lame reason for it is: returned merchandize. I do not earn a single Cent from them and so I decided to invest no single Cent on them too. That means I drop them, cioa cioa zappos.

    got about 300 reversed today, and I'm happy because I have adopted a policy to not rely on a single merchant for all my shoe sales, the results are showing .. the average reversals on every 10th used to be more than double this number most of the time

    Zappos sales are up, so are the reversals.

    I dropped Zappos now. I think it's the right move.

    Looking at the non-Americans in the thread and wondering how you got into the program in the first place... I was rejected based on where I live.. despite not running regional websites.

    Anybody getting sales from zappos the last few days? I'm not getting any even though my clickthroughs to them are up and I usually get several a day. Ever since this 180solutions discussion started, there hasn't been much. Maybe the parasites are really upping their efforts because they know they are in trouble so they want to get all they can before they get kicked off.

    Although this month our EPC with zappos is clearly down a lot, we had some zappos sales yesterday, on 2 sites.I agree with Paul above, the per sale amount is lower than usual, and indeed mostly lighter shoes are bought.

    Barefoot must be the new fad.

    Zappos sales are in the tank.

    Actually Zappos sales are doing fine. The problem is the sales are all being credited to the 180 affiliate theft of the links at the checkout and not the affiliate who brought the customer to the site.

    But who cares...Zappos still gets the sale.

    That's kind of what I'm noticing. I had over 400 click throughs yesterday with no sales. Usually with that many clickthroughs, I'll get 5 or 6 sales at least. Same with ebags, Fossil and ExOfficio are the others that I notice. It seems that the 180solutions people are really stepping up their reach.

    I must have slipped through the cracks yesterday. I had my best Zappos day in a couple of months. Over all it has still been slow lately but I think a large part of is seasonal.
    I reviewed my stats from July 03' and found that it was my slowest month last year as well.

    I know that I need to diversify even more so I'll keep building pages...

    On the bright side, August 03' rocked. Lets hope that holds true in 04'.
