    I vote that whomever the new AM is... they do something about the 1-800 number situation... other than that.... the 365 return days is a bit much. If you're going to have 365 return days then have a cookie duration of 365 days. I for one have seen my cookies work overtime in the 60 days that they are allowed to live ..... but the return policy comes back to haunt sometimes. Overall it's a great program and I just hope that whoever takes over... has a history in affiliate marketing... After all, affiliates have made Zappos what they are today.

    That's somewhat of a joke.

    Perhaps a good indicator of how much Zappos really values its affiliate program? Or perhaps the high regard in which it values its AM?

    Well, it may be negotiable.

    Well, I understand why their AMs are leaving.
    Many affiliates are making this much money in commission every month...
    Not challenging!
