    Thanks to Brian and his help (and great service), I'm pleased to announce my new affiliate program for the funny t-shirts and other products on my website http://ihateclowns.com. You can see the actual products here:

    http://www.ihateclowns.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?

    Our screen printed designs sell very well and we have a wide range of colors and designs to choose from. The commission rate is 15% per sale and you earn commissions even if the person doesn't buy on their first visit to the site (cookies that never expire!).

    More information and affiliate signup instructions are here:
    http://www.shareasale.com/shareasale...erchantID=3002

    I'm open to suggestions, comments and feedback [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Did I mention that you also earn 1% on the sales of affiliates you recommend to our affiliate program?

    I've already setup many direct product links with various sized banners, product photos and text links. Join today:

    Thanks for the welcome Dave [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Actually, although I'm working a niche market, the shirts seem to appeal to a VERY wide audience. From 8 to 80 years...literally.

    People from every walk of life seem to really like the website and the t-shirts.

    Let's hope some of the members here can fit me in their lineup. I hope to make it worth their while.

    Do your affiliates get a percentage of sales from purchases made through your affiliate links to other affiliate programs? (T-Shirt Hell for instance)

    Hi Crankin'_Deelz,

    Of course they don't [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    However, all of my affiliate links point ONLY to my online catalog. In my online catalog there are NO other affiliate links or programs promoted.

    There are even direct links to products so that the user can be directed right to the product they click on...no wandering around needed.

    Any other questions?

    Cool site there Rodney, also I'm joking about the following but is that woman at http://www.shareasale.com/shareasale...erchantID=3002 single? LOL Just had to ask! :0). Hey I'm thinking about signing up for your affiliate program very soon. Best of luck with your site and affiliate program.

    Hey Jason, thanks for the good wishes. I'm not sure if she's single, but she says clowns give her the creeps, so that's good enough for me [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Hello Rodney,

    Good luck with your program.

    I think when dhelle said "niche" he meant "clown-hating" theme of your products, not the shirts. Which I agree with.

    Other than that, I don't find Miva storefronts very shopper-friendly and professional.

    However, your products could be a good addition to novelty sites, and direct products linkers.

    Hi SamBay,

    Thanks for your feedback. I haven't had one complaint about my Miva shopping cart. In fact, of the poll answers I get when people check out, most find the shopping experience easy to "super easy".

    I've made the number of clicks to sale as minimal as possible and I've even made it so that the customer doesn't have to create an account to make a purchase.

    What about the Miva carts do you feel is unprofessional or unfriendly to shoppers?

    I also think that the content of the t-shirts expands beyond the niche. A lot of people like them just because they find them to be funny tees [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Rodney,

    We use the Miva shopping cart as well. We haven't had complaints, but it does require some customization to get everything working smoothly. In fact, there's still much customization on our "to do" list.

    Do you write the Miva script yourself, or do you outsource? We've been having a real difficult time finding someone good (and responsible) to write these Miva modules for us. We're especially interested in the module you mention to whack out the "create an account" feature. Create an account? They should just call it the "Hey, let's say... just for fun... we add one more step to the buying process... whooooppeeeeee" feature.

    Can you refer us to a guy... girl... anyone, but please no clowns. I agree... clowns do suck. John Wayne Gacy, Killer Klowns from Outer Space, Kinko... there hasn't been a good one since Bozo.

    Hi Frank,

    I outsource my mivascript requirements. All of the customizations I've done to my miva shopping cart have been already pre-written modules that you can easily add to any miva cart.

    That's the one great thing about miva. There is a huge userbase and tons of pre-written customizations available for it.

    I have purchased miva modules from http://MVCool.com and http://www.vikingcoders.com

    For the life of me I can't figure out how I made the customer account optional. I think it was something standard in Miva. If not, I'm sure I found it in the Miva help forums at:
