    Has anyone had any success with the Gap or Old Navy programs? I don't see any discussions on these merchants and wonder if it is even worth applying to them.

    Also, I got turned down by one of them over a year ago when my site was not fully developed, how could I reapply since they don't show up in my BeFree account as an option anymore [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]?

    Both rejected me. To heck with them, I'll take my business elsewhere

    I'm getting tired of changing out the banners of these 2 along with Delias* and Brooksbrothers. Thank God LL Bean dropped me. I think my shoppers buy at Goodwill thrift shops.

    Nothing stellar in terms of total sales, but they both do ok for me, and they do pay timely on commissions owed.

    I have both of them, both convert but they only pay 4% commish so don't expect to make much. I was rejected too at first and you can't reapply using the same account login. You can just open another one and apply again. I have a few accounts, if you get rejected you can always apply with another accout. I don't like BeFree but its always been customers(site visitors)first so thats why i carry them.

    Good stuff, thanks for the info.

    I can't believe a merchant would only offer its affiliates 4%! I think this just goes to show how a merchant does not really care about rewarding those who bring them sales.

    Not so much a tactic, i think sometimes merchants have more than 1 person looking at sites and approving them. And if you get turned down by a merchant you really want, write a nice e-mail and that usually does the trick. The way we feel when a merchant takes the time out to contact us or help us out personally, i think they feel the same way.

    I had no success with Gap and hated trying to work with them. Their links sucked and even if you picked a gap kids link it wouldn't take you thier. This has been a while back but I hated them so much I pulled them from my maternity page when I only had two vendors! Now thats hatred!

    Forgot about the Baby Gap banner and product links. Just checked the stats and zip in last 9 months. They must sell only slightly used diaper pails or the Mom's just return the clothes when the kids out grow them.

    On a side note. Watch out wasting time on holiday sales for merchants who sell online with local store pickup feature. All those types showed zip last year during the rush. I think they tag those sales for reversals or purging from their batch files.
