    Petco leaving?
    It seems that Petco is jumping the LS ship. Anyone heard where they are moving to? The email just said more details would be made before Feb 15th.

    Going to CJ, email came today. You'll probably see more and more of that. LS merchants going to CJ.

    PETCO.com will be concluding it's current Affiliate Program on LinkShare and transitioning to the Commission Junction Network tomorrow, February 15, 2006 at 12:01 AM PST.

    Err...yeah....like ZERO changeover time to alter links... ...sigh...

    3. Once you complete the form to become a Commission Junction publisher, the system will automatically apply you to the PETCO.com program. Upon submission, you will receive a confirmation message from PETCO.com with important information.

    4. On February 15th, you will receive a notification from the PETCO program on your approval to the program. Until your application is approved, you will not have access to the product catalog, links or banners.

    5. Once PETCO.com approves your application, PETCO.com will appear in your "Get Links > Active Advertisers" list.

    6. Replace all existing LinkShare affiliate creative on your site with creative from the new Commission Junction affiliate program on February 15, 2006.

    Note: The existing LinkShare links will continue to work and direct customers to the PETCO.comOnline Store only until February 14th.

    That's not the merchant's fault, same with that whole Domectications group that went on over. That's Linkshare. Let's just say they play hardball with merchants that leave. But you'll see the same from any other merchants that leave.

    When the whole Domestications group left.

    You'll see the same pattern when other LS merchants go to CJ, one day notice kind of deals.

    Trust is right. LS plays hardball and won't let LS merchants participate in any other networks so it is impossible to do dual networks during a transition time.

    The Petco program is run by Patrick Terrell, one of my all-time favorite AMs. I'm thrilled that Petco is leaving LS for CJ.

    If you're reading this Patrick

    I do wish they would hurry on the CJ application approvals. I want to minimize the amount of time I have broken links.

    In the process of moving to CJ, did they shed the parasites they were involved with or are they the first affiliates to get approval?

    I do my little affiliate shop with WordPress, have been thinking about going about it a different way (WordPress doesn't *do* JavaScript gracefully), but was happy when 2 of the shops I have signed up for moved, and all I had to do was make the listings *Private* until I got the updated code.

    I reapplied at PetCo on CJ, and was approved within hours, if that gives anyone an idea about transistion time.

    If you have applied to Petco and haven't been accepted yet, make sure you check your pending offers and see if they are there. They have one where you have to agree to something, click accept and then you'll get a welcome email.

    I applied, was accepted and am already receiving their datafeed nightly.

    I, for one, am thrilled they moved away from Linkshare.
