    50% Reversals at Camping World
    A few months ago I set up a RV web site with Camping World's datafeed. In March (only month I have had sales) I had a few dozen sales. In April about 50% of them were reversed. Last week I contacted Camping World at their LS listed email address (campingworld@linkshare.com) but they have not responded.

    One, is this a normal reversal rate for CampingWorld.com and two, does anyone know who the Affiliate Manager is and a different email address to contact them with?

    Just bumping this up in case it got missed yesterday. I would appreciate anything from anyone who has had experience with this company.

    Thanks.

    I talked to them briefly a few times last year as they were transitioning to LS. They seemed pretty responsive, but I don't have that email address anymore. I haven't pushed any sales for them yet, but this is good to know. If they reverse at 50% I'm not going to bother.

    If this was not so sad it would be funny. As I could not get a response from the email address that LS provides for CampingWorld (which figures, since it is a linkshare.com email address and we know how those don't get responses) I checked their website and found affiliates@campingworld.com so I sent them a message.

    You won't believe it!

    Mailbox unknown or not accepting mail. And this came from: Symantec_AntiVirus_for_SMTP_Gateways@affinitygroup.com

    Okay, time to look for a phone number for this company.

    Okay, it has been over a week and no response from campingworld@linkshare.com. Also no response from affiliates@campingworld.com (see above).

    I tried sending Gloria a PM, but forgot she does not have enough posts.

    Looks like I'm dropping CampingWorld forever.

    I have been talking with their aff manager a few times, trying to remember how I grabbed ahold of them. Pointed the fellow to abw, and he was quite interested in this forum. Don't write them off just yet, the guy struck me as pretty earnest and serious about support....

    Well, surely the folks at LS have an email address of some kind they use to communicate. Perhaps they can give it to me (anyone reading this?).
