    Question How Does Kolimbo Pay?
    I am looking at Kolimbo's site:
    http://www.kolimbo.com/

    They have a secure sign-up, multiple domains can be indicated on the sign-up. I wish they had a complete list of merchants to see but there are a couple which would interest me.

    Do they offer product links? Affiliate Benefits #3 specifies text, banner links, weighted rotating banners and datafeeds -- but what about a nice specific individual product link?

    I've looked all over their site and can not figure out how they pay affiliates: check (my preferred method), paypal, etc...
    Where is payment discussed?

    Cool
    I believe you have to deal with the individual merchants there. Kolimbo gathers some stats for you but is not quite a network.

    Correct. A couple of gem merchants buried in there though.

    We're a network, just not in the regular mould. Kolimbo itself is a collection of many different merchants, it allows you to join them, get stats, generate reports, get links, datafeeds, banners....and yes, direct link to individual pages on a merchant's site. Infact, there is a Direct Link Wizard that allows you to simply find the page you want to link to - paste it into Kolimbo and it will spit out the relevant affiliate link for you.

    Most merchant's run independent programs so you will get paid individually. 99% of them send out checks, but some also have other options like wire transfer, PayPal and more. See their listings to find out more. We also have Kolimbo Select merchants which means affiliates will get consolidated payments. This is a new service so there's only a handful of merchants that fall into this category.

    What kind of merchants are you particularly interested in? I can find some for you to check out before you join if you wish?

    I'd be interested in a consolidated check or check (from a merchant). I am not interested in direct deposit or PayPal (other people like those types of payments perhaps, but I'd like a check).

    I don't think all of your merchants were listed, but of the ones I could find so far, I'd be interested in:
    • Benefit Cosmetics
    • Venus Swimwear
    • GoCollect.com
    • Hats.com
    • TicketsNow
    • Furniture Find

    I would be interested in similar merchants. I specialize mainly in Women's interests, cosmetics, lifestyles, popular culture, interior dcor, and New Age topics.
    I am particularly interested in specific product links.

    Thank you for your help.

    Thanks for your help, BenKowaBunga

    It seems as if there is a delay in terms of when I can create banners/product links for certain companies.

    There is a nice variety of merchants to affiliate with. The only problem I encountered was that the system often logged me out and would display an error message.

    No probs.

    There is a delay as some merchants manually approve affiliates, so you cannot login to those accounts until you are approved.

    Let me know what pages you were getting logged out of and I'll look into it.

    That happens with other affiliate programs. The only reason it comes as a surprize is that the program said I was joined to the affiliate ... but perhaps the program was just noting I had manually applied & my application was acknowledged.

    Well, I am not logged in anymore. The "log out" problem occured when I was on a "Find Programs" page & it happened a number of times. One one of the Kolimba pages there is an interactive CGI box & I submitted the message.

    Datafeed FTP Downloads via Kolimbo?
    I know this is a little off topic, but...

    Is there a way to get the feeds for the merchants you are associated with via FTP or do they have to be downloaded manually via the web interface?

    pls add the relationship status in "your merchants" page too

    like "pending, active/approved, rejected, deactivated, removed etc"

    Chriscrm - They can be downloaded via an http connection, which is:
    http://www.kolimbo.com/fd/USERID.txt

    If you really need an FTP we can look into setting it up, but this should suffice.

    Vrindavan - I'm not sure what your post means. If it's a question please rephrase it.
