    'nother question for Neil - Plazan
    Hi Neil,

    I looked at your own forum, your blog and around here but couldn't find an answer:

    Are affiliates allowed to use your web address for ads at the PPC search engines like Adsense? I don't use/bid on your brand name, but I wonder if I can use 'www.PlazanSkinCare.com' as the visible URL.

    Thanks, Frank

    I thought that was against googles new rules?? I thought you had to display your own landing page unless 'www.PlazanSkinCare.com' is not advertising.

    Actually, Google still allows you to use the merchant's domain and link directly to it, but the catch is that only one ad will show for each domain. If the merchant and three affiliates all use the merchant's domain, only the highest ranked (CPC * CTR) of those four ads will be shown. If you use your own domain and landing page, you avoid this (assuming you don't have affiliates of your own bidding on your domain).

    If you don't do any PPC yourself, I would highly recommend that you allow your affiliates to do PPC. That way, you'll get exposure in the paid sections of the search engines.

    Thanks to all for the advice, much appreciated. So far it doesn't seem to convert at all, but I will try and tweak if Neil allows.

    Neil, I've just send you an email regarding this. [saw you already replied above, I'm just too slow after that Chang. Thanks a lot, hope it works for both of us]


    Btw, our next door supermarket had a special on Chang Beer from Thailand(I'm sure Chris AMWSO knows this beer), only ~US$1.20 a can. Nice stuff, brings back a lot of memories from Bangkok...

    Shipping rate
    Hi Neil,

    I've exchanged emails with Uliss about this and he said there was nothing you could do. Maybe you'll remember who I am, you sent me an email when I made my first sale and later that day you sent another email that someone had hit the order button twice and to expect a reversal. I thanked you for the advanced warning.

    Anyway, my question is about shipping. When I first joined your program, I was going to buy something as a birthday gift for a girlfriend. When I saw your flat shipping rate of $24 it took me by surprise and I didn't buy anything. Shipping charges were almost as much as the product itself!

    Your products are very affordable, however, it's the shipping fees that scare me. I've made a few sales with Plazan but I'm afraid that many people feel the same way I do about this. I know I could do a lot better with Plazan.

    In order to make this extra charge worthwhile, people have to buy a large quantity of products. Those who want just one item would have to pay almost double for it.

    This isn't a negative post, I just don't know how to change my frame of mind about this issue. High shipping charges always turn me off with any merchant or when I want to buy something myself.

    I could only promote bundled products or the more expensive ones, but then I lose out on single lower cost orders that way.

    Suggestions/advice on how to get around this or how to get people to see past the shipping fees would be appreciated.

    Thanks much.

    Catwoman

    Hi Catwoman
    with regards to shipping, it is something that we are looking into.
    what we charge for shipping
    is what we get charged by the postal company.
    we are always open to comments and suggestions regarding this.
    it is not something that we can waiver as it would not make sense.
    I dont think it is having a big effect on sales, as we dont have a high
    cart abandon rate.

    Okay, I'm able to view it now.
    Answer this one question for me.
    How long does it take for one to receive their product once ordered and the amount has been charged to their credit card?
