    Deckers Outdoor Now Parasite Free
    That would be Simple Shoes, Uggs Australia, Teva. Katherine is a nice AM.

    "Deckers Outdoor partners:

    I am very excited to bring you some great news. Allow me this opportunity to
    formally announce the Deckers Outdoor affiliate program is now a parasite-free
    affiliate program.

    Being new a new affiliate manager, there was a learning curve for me coming into
    this program. After lots or research, talking with many of our top affiliates
    and those affiliates that many consider to be "parasite affiliates", and
    weighing the positives and negatives of having them in our program, I have come
    to the conclusion that many of the marketing practices these affiliates use are,
    in my opinion, unethical.

    Therefore, all known and suspected affiliates that are considered parasitical
    have been removed from the Deckers Outdoor program and will remain removed. I
    would like to personally thank all the partners that have stuck with me and
    Deckers Outdoor during this learning curve. I'd like to also give a big thanks
    to those partners that brought this matter to light.

    This is a perfect example of how some feedback improved the program. Please
    feel free to call, email, or IM me with any other feedback you have."


    Now they just have to work on keeping enough Uggs in stock

    I've had good luck with UggAustralia. It's nice to see them throwing out all the parasites. Katherine is also doing a great job as their affiliate manager.

    Deckers made a smart decision
    Well...I guess that is more work for me once I get back home.
    I removed them not too long ago after repeated e-mails regarding parasites went unanswered.
    They will soon be added back to my sites.
    Thanks Katherine!

    Nice to see someone smart enough to realize that an affiliate needs to work for their commissions, not force cookies, hijack someone elses traffic, or cookie the merchant on non-commissionable actions. Every UGG affiliate will earn on their own merrits without interference from domainless POS attack dogs.

    Hi There.

    I've got links up and such but when I try to get the database emailed to me from the tools page--what I recieve is not intelligible. It looks like machine code or something. I emailed Katherine a few days back but haven't heard back yet. Thought I'd give it a shot here. I like using the feed because then I can feature specific products that are best sellers, or my favorites...etc...

    The Teva line is a perfiect fit for mywebsite(the traffic on this site is really picking up right now). Any clues would be appreciated!

    Hi Suzi,

    As I type, our IT manager is in our server room feverishly working to get our email back up and running. In other words, I haven't recieved your email regarding the datafeeds. It should be back up this afternoon so I'll reply to your email (if it can be recovered) ASAP. Thanks!

    Thanks Katherine.

    My email is pretty much what I stated above.

    When I have the data feed emailed to me from your affiliate tool page--what I recieve is gobbledy gook. It almost looks like code but machine code of somekind. So I can't use it. I'm wondering if I'm missing something here or its being converted when its being mailed er sumthin....

    Anyway I am eager to add products. Strike while the iron is hot! Let me know if you have any info on this issue. Let me know if you'd like me to email you again.

    Thanks!
