    Questions to ask a merchant with an inhouse affiliate program?
    Suppose I find a company that offers an in-house affiliate program - what sort of questions might I ask them in considering them as a potential merchant?

    Apart from what Geno said..
    -- Would they provide you with stats & reports?
    -- Are they parasite free?
    -- What about tools & support?

    Ask them do they read abw ?

    - do they have an affiliate manager ?
    - what are the payment options ?
    - how often they pay ?
    - do they offer private label sites ?

    if you can get some info on their conversion rates, it should help too.

    Do you think they will tell you about parasites just like that, Nish?! That would a queston for ABW-ers.

    True. Many a times they won't even know the term 'parasites' in the affiliate context.
