    Question Tons of "Call To Order" links on Hubcaps?
    I just joined Hubcaps. After checked with their site, I noticed that most of their products were pointed to "Call to order" or "more info"( which ended up call to order too). Do you guys have any experiences with this merchant?

    We've been around the block about that here already.

    They pretty much dismiss it as they prefer to take telephone orders for higher-priced items.

    Thanks nowires, I've tried to search first, somehow this thread didn't show up as a search result.

    Wow, it is a very "nice" explanation from hubcaps that "Yes, we do have our 800 number on our pages. We actually can't stop that. A number of our orders do have to be placed over the phone. We cannot have an order button on everyone of our caps, due to availability and some pricing issues..."

    Bye bye Hubcaps!

    Funny. I just got an email from them this afternoon that said in part:

    From: *** at hubcaps.com
    Sent: Tuesday, August 08, 2006 12:33 PM
    To: *** at amazing-bargains.com
    Subject: About your car site

    Good Morning,

    My name is *** and I manage the Affiliate Program for Hubcaps.com.
    I came across your site while searching the internet for Car Sites. After
    visiting your site, I thought I would let you know about a new program
    we've started here at Hubcaps. com.
    But I don't have a car site.

    Even if I did, this huge "call to order" leak is enough to keep me away.

    Thumbs down
    telephone tracking may have even been pioneered at SAS. if the merchant won't institute it and give their affiliates the credit, dump 'em!
