    B*llocks.

    The only other merchant I can think of to fill the gap is Amazon.co.uk with its crappy commission structure. And other ideas?

    I got a *very* quick response from UKaffiliates:

    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>Thanks for your e-mail. Jungle.com are suspended temporarily due large amounts of
    pending sales waiting to be approved. We are expecting a report from Jungle at 5pm
    today, in order to clear this, therefore, we hope jungle to go live again tomorrow.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    So with a bit of luck it should be up in a day or so. It's nice to get such a speed response from an affiliate program.. I was impressed [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks for that info Moo.

    Let's hope so. They owe me a load (including a single commission of £81.50). Have you tried Micro Warehouse? They have converted some for me. Not as good as Jungle though.

    I've just had a sale from 22nd October validated and moved from October to November.

    But I still have pending sales from 3, 11, 11 and 16th October. Odd.

    Has you sale moved into November instead?

    I still have 7 pending including one from 30th August.
    2 from September and 2 from November.

    One which I expected to be reversed has been approved also [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]


    Maybe it's time to try out Microwarehouse.
    They even supply a datafeed for deep linking [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Anyone tried Microwarehouse?

    I have sold some stuff with Micro, but not as much as Jungle.

    @Dynamoo
    Yes a couple of October Jungle pending were validated and moved to November. They were all penny commissions.

    @Jungle
    You're dropped. Cannot be playing silly buggers with my money.

    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>Micro Warehouse is a global leader in the supply of computer solutions [...] We pay 1% commission for notebooks, desktop and PDAs, 2% for hardware and software and 3% for supplies and networking.

    Compared with Jungle's 3% flat rate it doesn't look too great. Amazon.co.uk have 5% commission, but a smaller range with a £10 cap on commission.

    Still, if the Jungle program isn't back by the end of the week, it's gonna have to be someone else, isn't it? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

    Yep,
    Something has to be in place before the Xmas rush and if Jungle are no longer reliable then I don't see any other alternative to Micro Warehouse for my UK traffic.
    I'm not a great fan of Amazon. Never done a single sale with them [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>Jungle are suspended whilst changes are made to their website. Please remove any links until further notice.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    I have only made one sale with Micro this month. Jungle sure converted better, but what can we do?

    Well, we can either go to Amazon.co.uk or wait for Jungle. Odd that it should have affiliate problems just before Christmas, isn't it?
