    Cool CollectiblesToday doesn't want me
    Tooooo bad . . .

    Can't tell if they are going by my stats at Performics or if CJ has some kind of autodump program going.

    Thought I remembered a forum for them here but I guess that is gone now.

    I sell for their competition with no problem.

    Just needed to vent, sorry.

    Moved to the CT forum - they wanted it listed under indie programs but also cross ref'ed on CJ board and since I haven't updated the revised abestweb.com frontpage with the new links (maybe I'm showing off that we mange 223 separate forums - I'm not BTW but nice factoid there ) the CT forum is waaaay down the http://forum.abestweb.com page as Scott says, this will change very shortly - time permitting, but in the interim, I have redirected and moved the original thread to the CT forum.
    Continued Success,

    I'm so sorry. I know it hurts to be unwanted.

    Thumbs down
    I just tried my luck and got nowhere.

    To bad, I need to find someone to replace Funtocollect, so I guess it won't be Collectibles Today.

    Did you guys ever email them directly? When I first applied, I too was declined. I sent them an email and they accepted this time. Perhaps they are just waiting for the new AM to come aboard before they approve anyone? As you said, now that FTC is dropping their program, the other collectible sites should be looking to bring in new affiliates, rather than giving them the canned decline response.

    I really detest canned responses such as one gets from CJ. I have no idea what the criteria are that can get you ignored.

    When this company, who has two people posting here, comes here and makes the simple statement that ABW people are welcome and that they should send a request to xxx@xxx.com then I'll try again.

    I have no idea how they will convert for me. My sites get extremely variable traffic during the year and at no time are really heavily hit for collectibles buyers. But one of my [really long-established and popular] sites is aimed at the antiques and collectibles (older) market and some of those visitors have been buyers of the new-for-the-collectors stuff.

    It doesn't even take an AM to do the good thing for us here, just a concerned company person to say the right thing at the right time. Here's a chance to make points with affiliates and prospective affiliates.

    If you were buyersport, or limeware, or boxtops4education, you'd already be in like Flynn.

    Talking
    Have you tried calling and talking to Alison Fox on the telephone?

    She answers the phone and talks to me every time I call her.

    She has her phone number listed in a different thread http://forum.abestweb.com/showthread.php?t=5121

    It is 847.581.8287

    chances are they feel competition has gone away and it is time to rethink their commission structures.

    We still want you Herb! With the transition in full force I have had to
    review so many applications that a few of our affiliates seem to have
    fallen through the cracks and for that I apologize. Please go ahead and
    reapply to our affiliate program and I will accept you.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.

    afox@collectiblestoday.com

    Thanks for your patience,

    Allison
