    All of it is totally accurate. Nothing but pluses for OS affiliates as it is a customer facing tool. Overstock should be the first to offer the 4th click free just for the extra conversion capabilities Asif brings to the plate. I firmly believe I should show a sales increase having many GC Overstock showcases on my site. Unfortunately in 3 month's of GC extra exposure my Overstock sales are 1/100th of the amount I booked for the last 4 years. Asif needs to light a fire under OS reporting of GC sales.

    Yhe good news first: I see where Overstock now is offering Goldencan free of the 4th click penality. Bad News: All my Overstock GC displays are missing products -sub-categories and appears their feed is corrupted. OS and Asif need a quick pow-wow so we can crank up this customer facing tool for sending our focused shoppers through the OS cookie landmines of their less savory affiliates.

    Now I also notice all GC merchant displays appear to be whacko and not showing the category/sub-catagory selections. Kick over that GC product engine Asif!

    Mike,
    Missing Categories problem has been fixed. I am sorry about the problem.

    I agree with Mike on this! Ever since implementing the GC code about 5 months ago, my Overstock sales went down the drain. I removed the showcase and replaced it with normal links and now I'm showing sales again. I wonder if this doesn't have something to do with LS's negative stance regarding LS merchants and GoldenCan? I don't blame Asif for this as he is doing a great job and I don't think the 4th click has anything to do with it either. It's just strange that the combination of GC and OS doesn't convert.

    Well the taking the lid off this mystery box should be easy. Asif, or Overstock, releasing the average conversion ratio of this consumer focusing click machine would clear up any confusion. Silence might mean there is some unresolved issues. I love the sub-category integrations onto existing pages giving OS more product click exposures.

    Just a quick question.... is Overstock free from parasites now?
    One day parasites and their ilk will be made illegal, I bet a few Lawyers will be pissed off when the day comes.

    I don't know of any parasite not getting venture capital & upfront money from Overstock affiliate program and Patrick Byrne is wondering why crooks are targeting his stock.

    Affiliates aren't the only ones with a bone to pick with Overstock. I can't believe they've become so bad so quickly. Truly a sad state of affairs for Overstock.

    Good Catch for missing categories. Overstock DVD categories have been added into GoldenCAN.

    Be nice if Asif posted the general GC conversion ratio for Overstock. I sure would like to know where in the LS creative link report where the GC links showup. No plausable reasons exist as to how OS showed only $15.28 in commissions from the Christmas traffic I sent them since Nov 1st. The only thing different this year was the mass exposure I gave to OS with the GoldenCan customer focusing application.
