    Buy.com Product Links
    I've tried to search on CJ for product links and getting nowhere. I've tried things like Projectors, laptops, Canon all without any results being displayed. Alternatively if I search for a I get more than a 1000 and told to refine my search.

    Has anyone had any success with this please and if you have what products have you got?

    Thanks for any help, it's driving me mad.

    Buy.com has over a million products, so it's going to be tough. You might try building dynamic links. I know I saw a specific text link that they set up for redirection. You'll probably need to ask Melissa (the Affiliate Manager) for details on how to use it.

    Thanks for that, I will try it out. I will contact Melissa with what I'm after and see if she can point me in the right direction.

    I hadn't realised they had so many products.

    Thumbs up I've got some links!!

    I can't believe this. I've just tried to search for Projectors again, but this time I get back 253 products. Earlier today I tried this and it returned nothing.

    I guess posting here has kicked it into action.

    Maybe that's why it worked this time and not earlier. It found the products a lot quicker than earlier on. It was taking over a minute before, but now it takes less than 30 seconds...

    Hi Ripe,

    Thanks for letting me know about the duplicate skus, I will have our developers look into right away. Also, I think the number of products above is the "in-Stock" total, there are still music downloads as well as Music, DVD, Book pre-order products... in addition to products that come in and out of stock...

    Appreciate the feedback!
