    Ok, so I'm looking over an email from Payless about their site getting a remodel. That's cool, their site needed a freshening up. I didn't realize they wuld shut it down completely to do this. And, to top it off, all static links will need to be replaced on the 15th.

    And, one more thing, the dynamic link they included in their email for us to copy and paste, has someones site ID in it, not mine though.

    Why oh Why are they doing this now!?!

    Because the AM firm running their program could give a rats ass about nomral affiliate inconvenience and workload as long as their BHO parasite buddies aren't effected.

    Mike, how does shutting down their site not affect the BHO's?

    He just had to get his BHO quota in for the day.
    Every affiliate, big or small is affected. NO ONE can shop at their website, so no one gets paid...

    Great time of year for them to do this...What are they thinking? Obviously they aren't!

    That's just crazy timing! Irv's Luggage has been going through a site re-design. When it got delayed and was not due to be finished until Nov 20th I said NO WAY and made them hold off until after the 1st of the year. To do anything this time of year that could even possibly interfere with sales is just unthinkable.

    Payless simply uses the same design philosophy for their web site that they use for their shoes. The web site wears out about every month or so...but putting a new one up is cheap!

    sound thinking

    Good grief,
    The least they could do is redirect their traffic my way while they are down. I will give them a call!

    Payless is open with their newly remodeled site. Nice to see they're still advertising the sale that ended yesterday.
