    Ok, so at the request of many - we have created the P.P.S. ....

    what is it? well, right now there is only one merchant participating - so small is what it is...but here is what it will be....

    1. A product-selling merchant network only. i.e., there won't be any PPL or PPC, only merchants selling and shipping products. PPS only.

    2. Membership both as a merchant, and as an affiilate will be extremely selective. We have laid out a number of criteria for both Merchants and Affiliate to meet, before membership is allowed...

    (www.shareasale.com/premier) to see the qualifications...

    3. Existing Merchants and Affiliates can apply

    4. P.P.S. is more geared towards products, so we have enhanced the data download and feed capabilities, and will continue to do so as we go along.

    5. IF YOU ARE A SHAREASALE.COM Merchant - and want to take advantage of the P.P.S. - Email me, and we will take a look at your program and make sure that it all fits in with the requirements, etc...

    6. Congrats to Chris and Pierced-Body for being the first "Premier" Merchant, based on an excellent track record and excellent program.

    7. One of the important requirements, is that both Merchants and Affiliates must be members of ABW, (or a couple of others - we had to give people options ) - which should allow for a better communication between the Merchants and Affiliates.

    8. And most important - Feedback is important on this one, so your thoughts are welcome to my email box or PM.

    Check it all out, www.shareasale.com/premier

    You won't be able to login until you apply for premier status....one lucky ABWer already has "Premier" status - we had to have one for testing....maybe it is you?

    Thanks,

    Brian,

    Sounds impressive, I like what you are doing here.

    I applied to become an affiliate at Shareasale earlier today and once that is approved I will be applying for premier status.

    Cazzie,

    No, it is for everyone who wants to participate in PPS programs...as it will concentrate only on those. As it progresses, some merchants will choose to be available only through the premier, if we can prove to them that products can be sold through there....

    The more merchants who join the premier service - the more that have fit the criteria, which is good for all affiliates of shareasale.com....

    There are enhanced data features on the PPS, but they aren't mandatory to use....

    Thanks,

    Brian,

    Sounds like a great plan. It will definitely make it easier to search out pps merchant amongst the many different programs that SAS has to offer. Great idea! Ummm, great idea if I am accepted that is. If I'm not then the idea truly Sucks I'm joking of course

    Coincidence Me baby!

    Sounds like 90% of a familiar idea. Is share-a-Sale also interested in jumping on the bandwagon with TigerDirect and keep the BHO parasites off those premier merchants sites or hijacking affiliate link codes?

    Ecomcity,

    You should have some credit here, as your "rants", along with many other comments from merchants and affiliates alike, have provided a good blueprint for what we are trying to do here.... I told you all we listened to feedback

    Anyhow, as for the "parasite" bho thing - they are not allowed on either network shareasale.com or the PPS.

    Thanks,

    I remember giving you some Kuddos for having the balls to run some of your spam farming front ends and sleezy PPC idiots out of SAS when you posted at revNews. haiko speaks highly of you when you two are on the same wave length


    The only way to keep those BHO's from poping on your product only merchant sites is to give them legal notice like Andy did ...no poaching on those domains

    Brian,

    Replied to your PM on this, haven't yet heard back. Yes, we're interested.

    Do we have to reapply to SAS to join this program? I've tried signing up at www.shareasale.com/premier and am told I can't use the same user name. Is it possible to upgrade my existing membership instead of creating a new membership?

    As a general response...

    If you are an existing affiliate or merchant - you do not need to re-apply.

    If you are an affiliate, just go to www.shareasale.com/premier and enter your existing userID to upgrade to premier...

    If you are an existing merchant - you need to contact me (or have me contact you) to make sure that your site meets all of the requirements....

    Thanks,

    Hello Brian,

    We wrote you yesterday about log in error and we just tried again and received the same error notification below:

    "Not a valid login."

    Hope that helps you find out what the issue is.

    Our normal SAS log in signs in with no problem.

    Will we have to re-apply to merchants under the PPS program or will they be migrated? I am an affiliate of Pierced Body but I show 0 merchants joined. Of course Pierced Body is the only merchant available at this time.

    Under the P.P.S., if you click the "Join Program", and you are already a member of the program, your status with that program will simply be upgraded to "Premier"....

    The same relationship stats will exist...

    Hey Brian,

    Just applied to join as a merchant yesterday and THINK? I have been okayed.

    I sell only one product and pay a flat $75 commission. Would I qualify? Or am I being a bit premature and ambitious?

    Hi Brian

    Looks good from both side, all the passwords work fine thanks, can't wait for the XML to get rolling. Since we got into premier we've seen our average daily sales start to increase already

    Cheers

    Kneelsit -

    Your product may very well qualify - but we are trying to get an idea as to how merchants convert, before putting them in the P.P.S. - and since your account is new, we should wait a little while... We would like to get a conversion rate on the P.P.S. down below 1 in 150

    Thanks,
