    Just got this in an e-mail ...

    In an effort to streamline our Affiliate Programs, Eddie Bauer has
    decided to consolidate all of our affiliate partners under a single
    affiliate provider. After much consideration, we have chosen
    Performics. We are confident that this move should improve our
    communication with our affiliate partners. We sincerely hope that
    you remain an Eddie Bauer affiliate and join us in moving to the
    Performics program.

    It is interesting that they chose Performics. The BeFree EB program has a $50 minimum, while performics consolidates payments. I assume the merchant gets to keep the breakage when they leave BeFree.

    EB has a $50 minimum, so I wouldn't be suprised to learn that the breakage is over $100,000. I also wouldn't be surprised if companies like EB chose to dump beFree so that they can write off the breakage.

    Anyway, EB is yet another example of why affiliates should avoid doing business with networks that do not consolidate payments.

    How does this move effect their branding? OH ...while in transit they get 6 months of FREE banners served by BeFree til they stop displaying. Added benefit of course is the breakage and the BF reporting tags get turned off due to problems working together with Performics tags.

    I have about $30 from Eddie Bauer in BeFree from a link I forgot to replace with Perfomics'. Hope they won't stiff, they mention nothing about balances in their e-mail.

    Side note, when RedEnvelope moved to Performics from Linkshare, they owed me some change $5, I think, and told me they'd pay and didn't.

    Sambuy,

    I am pretty sure the contracts state that the merchant keeps the breakage when they dump BeFree. The breakage issue is a big incentive for merchants to leave beFree (EB will be able to remove a big liability from their sheets by dumping BeFree) it is also the main reason why you shouldn't join any beFree merchants unless you are certain you can give the merchant a good stream of 10,000 + click throughs a month. Smaller shops should stick with Performics and CJ.

    According to Eddie Bauer Affiliate Program when I e-mailed and asked about commission checks & BFree minimum at close of program they will send us whatever is owed, regardless of amount.
