    Will Bonsai Boy ever come back online? They've been offline for quite a few days already.

    Blizz nothing wrong with Bonzai Boy's site on my end - I just looked. Perhaps you had better check your links to see if they are correct.

    He's referring to Bonsai Boy's status at Shareasale, not BB's site.

    Apparently they need to refill the canteen.

    If they have a program at cj with parasites, your commissions can still get stolen.

    Say your customer downloaded some parasitic bho into their pc. Then they click on your link to buy the product. The link would get overwritten with the parasite's cj link and id and your commission still gets stolen.

    So I guess it makes no difference whether you use cj or shareasale for that merchant.

    Parasites are thieves. What are you going to do about it?

    I made the mistake years back on clueing in ABW they outsold all my CJ merchants combined every month. Minimum 300.00/month. Then the tricksters and sleezebags of ABW jumped on them like rabid dogs. Next comes their management decission to impliment every trick in the book to reduce commission exposure....

    An affiliate coded hijacking gift service.

    Outsourcing direct ship deals to wanks like Giftree, 1800Flowers etc ruining their carts reporting capabilities & integrety with multiple reporting tags. Merchant then uses auto cookie setting in the Serps when they see their affiliates doing it.

    Now their greed spreads to SAS and who know what tricks lie ahead. You can bet one thing as I know the art of Bonsai. No one on their staff gives a hoot about the ethics, fair play and honorable culture of the japanese and Chinese, who began the bonsai art form 2000 years ago. They are well aware of my rants over 2 years here and refuse to comment.

    I understand from past threads here they may not be the most honorable individuals but I swapped my CJ links for SAS links quite a while back it seemed as though it made a noticable difference in the amount of transactions I've recorded.

    I emailed them cos I wanted to know if it was worth me swapping the links to CJ from SAS and how long they were going to be down for. Pleasantly surprised when they actually replied.

    Bonsai's are the only thing I can seem to sell thru SAS so I for one, want them back!

    We had a problem with our CC, down for almost a week at SAS. Sorry for the delay on SAS.

    Working on getting rid of parasites.
    Is Ebates a parasite? I think so.

    We want to be parasite free, I need your help.
    I look forward to the day we are. How do I know?

    some of our affiliates moved over to SAS from CJ due to CJ links invisible. They are reporting increased sales. I assume the CJ norton problem is still not fixed.

    Thanks for your time
    Peg
