    cos,

    The merchants are in total control of their own payment cycle. Some are slow (sometimes for good reason, sometimes not). Many are very quick. Look at Collectibles today (has a forum here), pays within two weeks of the month close.

    Be Free sends the payments as soon as funds are received, always turned around within 2-3 days of receipt.

    The worst thing here is that you're not getting responses. Again, that's the merchants and shouldn't reflect on all merchants in Be Free.

    Drop me a note with details on which merchants you're dealing with and I'll ask someone in the affiate group to follow up on your behalf.

    One only has to look at BeFree's total merchant forum list on ABW to see the reason for overall lack of pro-affiliate merchants parked there willing to post & recruit here.

    In 2-1/2 years the handfull of those not run by the Ad Whore 3rd party professional AM firms tells the story. I tried to pust trust and ethics back into BeFree with my efforts to make TigerDirect the darling of the affiliate industry. BeFree never leveraged this role model and rebirth to turn AM's into effective sales generation tools.

    Instead their lame AM's balked at conversion ratio being the prime judging factor and continued on with their diversion tactics and embracing BHO's, SE and e-mail spammers, and mass advertising mindset.

    Scott can and will work with any pro-affiliate merchant, but is totally powerless to change the bad habits of the majority of his merchants, who are run by AM fronts for IAB/DMA members.

    Dicks Sporting Goods
    Boatersworld

    Sorry to bang on , but I know that its just keeping the money in thier bank account as long as possible for cash flow and % on account

    I,m sure that there will be some technicial problem as for the reason for the late payment - sorry but they all get paid on time

    Yes Scott

    Dicks Sporting Goods - Technicial problems ( NO PAYMENT DATE GIVEN )

    Boatersworld - Due to bonus system ( NO PAYMENT DATE GIVEN )

    They both said payment should be in the next few weeks ish

    Sorry this is really bad . What are people to think if they are treated like this on payments

    Thank you for your time Scott

    My advice would be to switch from Dicks over to either fogdog or mvp - both of which carry exactly the same catalog of products, and have always been reliable for payouts.

    For the record in my experience Boaters World has always been slow paying. In fact last check I got from them it still said awaiting payments in the report for weeks afterward lol

    Cos,

    Sorry I missed this, I was on vacation last week.

    Please drop me an email to remind me of who you are and I'll get you in touch with their AM. Can't keep track of all these aliases.

    Boatersworld has not made any changes to their program. While at linkshare, they were constantly behind in payments. I really wonder why Befree or any networks do not make it mandatory for payments to be made on a timley basis. If they can not pay timley, then an escrow account should be created that holds 2 times their monthly payout. Then Befree can make the payments on time.
