    Thumbs down Newport Nautical is now not nautical on my sites
    They have toooooo much competition not to go on auto deposit! And one of their main SAS competitors finally added a datafeed (needs work, but I'm sure a kind nudge from Carolyn would help ).

    No fundy, no clicky.

    Wait a minute, did they used to be on Auto Deposit and still ended up off line? Looks like now they are not on Auto Deposit, as the last couple of offline incidents don't say that funds were added via Auto Deposit. But can a merchant end up offline even when on Auto Deposit?

    A merchant can still show low funds even with auto-deposit activated! I've noticed this happen a couple of times. However, it seems to only happen when a merchant approves an affiliate for FTP access to the datafeed...

    It costs the merchant a flat fee for every affiliate approved. If the merchant is currently just above their minimum threshold, a couple of FTP access approvals can knock the merchant into a "Low Funds" status. Because this is a manual process, the auto-deposit does not activate new funds into the account. I doubt this happens often, but it is certainly a possibility with the merchant in question.

    Now can this cause a merchant to go offline? probably not... I'm guessing this merchant removed auto-deposit (which is odd!).

    can a merchant end up offline even when on Auto Deposit?
    In one particular scenario I can think of, yes, they could. If the merchant's CC is maxed, SAS's charge attempt would be declined. Then, the merchant would end up offline if they didn't provide a nonmaxed CC# before all the funds in their SAS account were used up.

    Hm, I don't work with them directly...but I'll certainly reach out and make the auto-deposit recommendation! In my opinion, a merchant knows they have hit the big-time when they need auto-deposit...that means they've got rockin' affiliates!
    best,

    Is there any other news about Newport Nautical Decor? I'm thinking of joining.
    I don't understand it either when a company shows low funds. Why do they run a program if they have no cash ready to pay? And to allow their program to go offline is almost a sure sign they don't really care about their affiliates. Has anyone contacted them or invited them here? Who's the manager?

    It's things like this that I'm also trying to wrap my brain around:

    I realize it's all of three seconds, but does this mean that for those three seconds an Auto Deposit merchant is offline?

    @Carolyn, actually, I meant a nudge to Everything Nautical about getting their datafeed up to spec. Newport Nautical obviously DID have auto deposit and decided to remove it sometime within the last month or so. They've been offline twice this month alone, for at least two days at a time. Tis not the season for me to have to play "comment out the section" with such a merchant. Links that could be replaced with EverythingNautical were, and others had to get temporarily relegated back to CJ merchants unfortunately.

    @my2cents, actually, my company CC has LOTS more room on it than there is cash in my business account right now.

    @Leader, ah, that makes (sad) sense.

    @ModernArtisans, oh, well I really ought to thank the merchants who approved my FTP access! And now I feel kinda guilty about the ones I have yet to get to really marketing who approved my FTP access.

    Hello,

    I'm the owner of Newport Nautical Decor and am not affiliated with Black Forest Decor. I am taking care of the affiliate program myself instead of having an employee in charge of it. The reason is that it should be going a lot better. I apologize if you did not have luck with our program. I will look into the possibility of any problems but we have had some commission payments but just not that many. I do wish that you contacted us if you thought there was a problem, but I do understand your concerns. Like I said, I will take care of everything on my own now. That's one reason I just joined abestweb

    I do remember there were some problems with auto deposit, but we have never had a cash flow problem. If the funds were low then we would add more in. We are on auto deposit now

    fyi, we are getting a lot of sales and adding a lot of very nice products. Right now bedding is selling very well. We had 5 orders this week ranging from $280-$1200.

    Thank you,
    Edward
