    Will bill me later track?
    With all the gcart and other things happening i have to wonder if the Bill me later option will get in the way of tracking. Does anyone know what the story will be on this?

    "Speed through checkout - no account numbers, no waiting, no worries.
    Apply when you buy! Just choose Bill Me Later® at checkout and provide easy, top of mind information - in a few easy steps you're done."

    Sounds like they would leave the merchant and get a confirmation page through Bill Me Later® with the tracking pixel if used on the outside of the loop????

    I've often wondered about that. If any of my major merchants used it, I would have asked and/or tested by now, but BML isn't big in my world. I would like to know the answer to this question though

    These questions was asked by me many times over the years and completely ignored by the AM's. They wouldn't even answer if Bill me Later is a Super affiliate operation like LiveHelp. No answer means THEY ARE and are a commission diversion add-on service. Notice Bill-me-Later and LiveHelp NEVER EVER post on any affiliate boards or even info related bloggs like ReveNews. Therefore they cannot pass any affiliate smell test. Add TigerDirect and every other major computer vendor to the BML list.

    Do you really want to promote something that will have your competitor emailing them in the future? I am sure once a person uses Bill Me Later they will heavily promote to them, sending emails encouraging people to shop through their site.

    Tons of namebrand stores using it:

    My hubby made a $600 purchase on Cabelas using bill me later and it TRACKED so that is one store cleared. He has long since paid it off and gone on with life.

    "He" paid it off?
    I have no doubt it tracked, just not sure I want to promote a competitor. The email address he used, how many emails is he getting promoting bill me later?

    I sent an email earlier today to the merchant to ask directly what their understanding is of the tracking in a case like this (straight up merchant that i trust). Is Cabelas batch process and if not what network?
