    Another example of why I don't get a commission
    I like this AM, so I need to phrase this without venom... but

    http://www.taylorgifts.com/prodetail...mNo~D19587.asp

    Someone clicked my link to this product 27 times!!!! I checked... the link worked fine.

    Did something I don't normally do. I contacted the person and asked if she was having a problem with the link.

    When she responded, I said aargh!!!

    What's missing from this page - that guarantees the person will CALL the merchant - thereby guaranteeing I don't get a commission????

    I'll give you a hint: It's usually grey and says something like "Click here to order"

    I just called them asking how to order the plaque because the order link is missing. They put me on hold while they checked on it. I figured they would offer to take my order over the phone. They didn't. They told me the item is sold out, they don't have any idea when or if they will get it back in stock. They said that's why the link is missing. They didn't even try to sell me "something similar", so maybe it's a one time wierd thing with that item.

    The other items I checked have the buy now link.

    It appears that it was only this one product set up like this. Perhaps this was because it was a personalized product or maybe just a goof up.

    What about the make up for such a problem, for a missed commission? I hope I would never hear from my affiliates for such a problem. But precaution isn't wrong.

    in this case there was no more product to be sold so there could be no commission.

    I wonder if the item was in stock would they have done a phone order, which then would be lost commission for him. Which would be a bummer. I'm suprised they didn't try to upsell you anything similar.
