    Krupps (with 2 Ps) = Outdoor Decor-like stuff, not coffee. (Unlike Krups, 1 p, the coffee machine company.)

    Any other suggestions?

    Anyone got enough influence with them to get them to open an SAS account?

    I used to but my sales have been off this year.

    I serriously wonder if they would do better for me if they weren't on CJ. Maybe, more sales would track.

    Do what you can for 'em: Promise to promote the heck out of 'em if they do move.

    Just don't *promise* that the extra promotion will bring results. Let them assume it will.
    If they do move, go ahead and add the pages (or dedicated site, or whatever) and make a "good faith" effort at them, quality-wise...but since you didn't promise results, your conscience can be clear if the new material doesn't rank in the SEs.

    They also may be amenable to opening at SaS *along with* CJ, rather than a total move.

    If anyone else is a Krupps affiliate, please consider asking them to open an SAS account.

    It does not need to be any more complex than "Please, consider opening an alternate account at Sharasale http://www.shareasale.com."

    If they get even a few such requests, it may put a bug in their ear.

    Thanks

    Interestingly, both gloss over the period from 1932 to 1945 in the corporate histories at their web site.

    As one of Germany's oldest and largest weapons manufacturers, the role of Krupps is well known. Is there much reliable documentation for Krups' participation during that period?

    I wasn't able to find any statement of apology from either company at their sites. If you find one I'd be very grateful.

    That has exactly what to do with selling decorative wheel barrows and garden bridges?

    Not much, I suppose. Just asking. Those are both interesting companies. And if you're looking to replace either of them you're in good company.

    Weapons?!

    I wonder how in the heck they decided to go into decorative outdoor products?

    Yeah, but I need to replace these products or take down major areas of several sites.

    That is what I am concerned about.

    Re: WW2-Off topic-
    Many people don't realize Coca-Cola was a major sponsor of the '36 Berlin Olympics.
    After America got into the war, Coke pulled out & the Germans created their own 'replacement' soda which later came to be known as 'Fanta'.

    The other Krups (coffee makers, etc) is a German born company:
    http://www.krups.com/krups/Focus/His...ps+History.htm
    However, it seems according to their own site as well as others, that they mostly made scales during the war years. Krups was not Krupp Works, the German munitions manufacturers. (http://www.straightdope.com/classics/a5_078.html ) added

    And now, off to grab SAS links for Krupsdecor. Hope this means they'll start answering their emails again. They really got bad about communication the last couple of years, including some drastic changes to the datafeed at cj and I had stopped carrying them. However, they have some niche lines that very few others carry.

    This CJ new PSA dark cloud does have a silver lining.

    cj merchants are fleeing to SAS by the truckload.

    I logged into sas and saw so many merchants with loads of products. CJ's PSA could be the breakthrough SAS needed to get the merchants affiliates need.
