    Avoiding Merchants Who Go Offline !
    Around about 6 times I have (and I just got started) took the time to review a merchants' products to determine if I would want to help promote their items. After I sign up and I am auto approved I get the links, and product information.... (all time consuming) and the following day the merchant goes offline. This has happen about 6 times now and the merchants have been offline since. This is non productive for the affiliates who must gather the information they are interested in adding to their sites and delaying other legitimate merchants from getting included because it is time consuming to sign up, add the links, get pics etc.. Seems a bit ODD to me ! However, I am new at this so maybe this is the norm.... but I think some kind of regulation on merchants doing this should be implemented.

    Thank You for your attention to this matter or knowledge regarding how often this occurs as well as why and how to avoid picking a merchant who will go offline after you sign up !

    Before you join any merchant, check their "Program Uptime History" - if they have gone offline before, they will go offline again... and again.... and again.....

    Pick Auto Deposit merchants only. This will help a lot.
