    What happened to Meritline's Forum?
    I don't see their forum anywhere, did they remove it? I think they're program is going down hill fast, as is another of their affiliate programs. I just had a bunch of trouble placing a test order with them, kept forwarding me to a yahoo login page. I kept trying to login with my yahoo password, but it never worked. Eventually, after clicking the checkout button about ten times, it worked and actually let me place an order. My EPC is a tenth of the average of my lifetime epc, averaged over 55,000 clicks. Thier other program, after placing a test order I recieve an email saying,

    "It is our pledge to provide our
    valuable customers with the scooters at the most competitive price.
    In fact we have cancelled the payment on credit card to make sure that
    your information is handled with the highest level of security. Since
    in the past, we found many fraudulent orders by embezzling others'
    credit card information. Hope you can understand.
    Meanwhile, we would like to pass the operational cost savings onto you
    by offering a discount on all retail purchases paid using Money Order (
    6% discounts), Cashier Check ( 6% discounts), or Wire Transfer (8%
    discounts). "

    It's no wonder sales dried up, and this was after I spent a couple hundred on ppc!

    You know, sometimes I think it's easier having a job, you show up, do your eight hours and go home and not worry about it. Affiliate marketing, you can get reamed from anywhere at anytime from so many angles. If I had all of the money I've been screwed out of, I think I'd buy myself a new car.

    Oh, btw, in the confirmation email, I see the have opened a forum of their own.

    Their forum was closed because of non-payment which was seriously in arrears, their AM promissed me payment, but it was horsehockey.
    Continued Success,

    Wow, and to think I was just going to start posting their links on a site of mine. Thanks for the heads up guys. There's no way I'm doing business with them now.

    It sounds like they've likely lost their merchant (CC acceptance) account.
