    Bill Bam Cuts Commission
    Dangit! First FTC bails on me and just as I sign up for BB this...

    *Sigh*
    Dear All,

    A bit of bad news I'm afraid, we've had to lower the commission on Bill Bam, it is being dropped from 12% to 8% for all new sign ups. This is commercial decision based on margins and pourchase costs and not a reflection on simply wanting to pay less.

    For current top partners the commission will remain at 12% and has already been set.

    For new partners who drive good transaction volume we will be able to increase the commission.

    Thank you

    Chris

    hummm . . . the banner ad at the top of the program description page at SAS still shows 12% . . .

    how long does it take to get accepted/rejected?

    Still, 8% isn't exactly bad, not that I like commissions being lowered ...

    Hi Herb,

    Thanks I'll get that fixed, will have you approved now.

    Karl, me neither, but the client was quiet keen to have 8% as the base and offer up to 12% to partners who drive consistant sales, so the 12% is still there

    Cheers

    Not just new sign ups. That's for top partners, other existing folks (like me) got dropped to 8% even if NOT a new signup. Gotta read the fine print.

    I couldn't be a top producer with this, I only need one or two products, just baby stuff. Low competition but very targeted keyword - they search by specific product and brand name - and I've got the Google rankings for it and traffic as good as it can be for a third-tier keyword. But I pulled the link anyway just on principle.

    Then, the merchant who sells it personalized lowered their commission by almost half so I put them on the bottom of the page and put AdSense up top. Still sells one or two a month, in spite of their non-competitive pricing but the clicks are there. With some things, a lot of stores have the identical thing - it's just a matter of presentation and mostly pricing.

    Chris, it could only be a few a month at best, it's such a narrow product line (at under $25 apiece) so it's not worth worrying about. But I do have a new site underway that's a perfect fit, in a race against time to be ready for the holiday season, and this product line is *perfect* for something kid related for holiday shoppers.

    billbam's stuff probably can't be hand rolled for this site, I'll have to learn how to customize and use a feed and it'll be good to go, knowing that the affiliate support is there.
