    Are Toys r Us and Babies r Us portable across the sites?
    They're separate sign-ups, but they're both actually on the same site with a tabbed choice at the top.

    So if someone goes to Toys r Us from our site and so has our Toys r Us cookie, if they click over to Babies R Us and buy, will we still get credit and commission for the sale, or would they have to go directly to Babies r Us from our sites?

    Same thing in reverse - do we lose if they cruise?

    You will not lose, even though they have different programs, its the same cart on the site. A shopper can buy items from TRU and also BRU in the same shopping session, and you will get credit on all the contents in the cart.

    Just wondering, since there were two separate applications and two separate acceptance emails. Think maybe I'd better double-check with them to make sure?

    I got that info from Tracie at GSI.

    I agree that it is a question since there is two applications and two separate programs, but she assured me that the cart was the same, and you can mix products in the carts from both stores.

    Which would be very nice if they actually had product links, but all I've seen so far are general text links and banners. Are banners for branding purposes, to get people into the stores, or are they supposed to be the latest cat's meow for conversion to sales?

    Found Allison's post over in the other thread:
    Hello!

    Both programs are now live through LinkShare. Please go ahead & apply to both

    Although there is only one shopping cart, you will get credit for any sales that come through your links regardless of whether the shopping cart has mixed products from both Babies R Us and Toys R Us.

    To clarify, if you are joined to both programs, information will be reported to you based on the link that the visitor came through on. eg if you have links to both programs up and a vistor comes through a Toys R Us link, and makes a purchase of Toys R Us products and Babies R US products, you will receive credit through your Toys R Us affiliate account.

    Additionally, we are in the process of creating datafeeds for both programs as well as adding banners and links for other products, categories & promotions.

    If you would like for a special link to be created or you cannot find a particular size, please email me and I will make sure that they are created.

    As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions.

    I am very excited about working with all of you in the Toys R Us and Babies R Us programs!

    best,

    Hi Allison Fox

    i was approved to ToysRUS program,
    but rejected by BabiesRUS program

    Thus, i can still promote BabiesRUS products and earn commission using ToysRUS banner link ?

    I got approved for them separately, so I'm still not 100% clear on the portability.
