    Thumbs down Get rejected automatically by 90% of US affiliate programs because based in UK
    <*MOAN*>

    We get accepted by at least 90% of UK (or even German) affiliate programs, but automatically rejected by almost US affiliate programs. Just applied to 10 loan affiliate programs and got turned down by 9 of them instantly!

    It's not as if they bother to check our sites: we get the rejection message the second we apply. Is obvious they are rejecting all non-US webmasters. Typical insular Yankee attitude, throwing all 'aliens' in the same category. They should learn to differentiate countries like the UK from Russia and China from where they may have suffered fraud or spam.

    Ah, well, their loss. Got have generated a lot of leads from them. And, eventually, the companies which treat non-Americans with respect might win out.

    <*/END OF MOAN*>

    I have been rejected by a few US programmes, but have got in if I emailed the AM in all but 2 occasions. Your experience must have more to do with the sector you're in than just the country of origin.

    Might there be some finance sector laws that preclude non-US sites for US finance programmes?

    UK affiliates rock
    Many of our top affiliates are from the UK.

    We will be sending 2 reps to the UK this summer just to recruit.

    Lots o' Love for non-us affiliates
    We've got lots of love for non-US affiliates (though we sell vitamins, not loans or financial stuff). Some of my best affiliates are from the Commonwealth... If you like vitamins, check us out...

    US government refers to foreigners as "aliens", which many people find derogatory: see here

    Inconsiderate attitude towards non-Americans pesists on the net. To this day many sites offering international services only accept American zip codes, for instance.

    it`s an island split in 2.
    Turkish= north
    Greeks=south
    they have been I dispute for many years,???
    personally I don't give a sh%t ...
    I live in the south, though I have been to the north..
    anyone,,,, aliens,,,, can live in the north, in the south they are very
    strict, we have just joined the E.U , so any Europeans can set up business,
    if your not an E.U resident you need an E.U partner...
    but its very nice, we have sun 10 months a year,
    and the most crystal clear blue sea,,,

    watch out for the launch of our skin care affiliate program on shareasale?????
    you could be surprised?????

    ehehehe

    i know all about the dispute issues....i am greek...i know everything that goes on since i was born, dont ask me on which side i am with, you know. but i leave it to the politicians to make them worse.....

    if only i could set up there when there was the 4% tax status...but the present 10% is not bad. i love their beers and now they joined EU, no european is more alien then them just take the place from athens and in 45 minuts you are there yuppuiiii....

    btw love the beer.

    how come and you settled your business need and personal location over there? and whats your experience so far over there businesswise?
