    6PM got bought up by another company and are suspending their program for now, not sure if they're coming back, just pulled my links. So most likely due to that.

    email:

    "6pm Partners,

    You may be aware that 6pm.com has recently been sold to a new owner.

    Consequently, from midnight on Sunday (Mountain Time), there will be a transition period where the 6pm affiliate program will be suspended. Please be advised that after 11.59pm Mountain time on Sunday 16th September 6pm will not be paying any affiliate commissions until further notice.

    Please also rest assured that the eBags affiliate program will remain completely un-affected by this transition."

    I was dumb enough to click the "accept button"

    I often routinely hit accept, so I did it without waiting to see the terms -- the page was very slow to load.

    They better give me another offer or else I won't promote them (not that I had started yet anyway -- so no biggie)

    The click happened way before you posted or that I was aware that this had become a topic

    Guaranteed 6-0 I'll remember that and avoid them until they change their terms.

    I meant this part:

    "They better give me another offer or else I won't promote them (not that I had started yet anyway -- so no biggie)"

    They're suspending the program until further notice starting this Sunday. So nothing really to promote.

    I think I read where Zappos bought them. I'll try and find the write up. I am not sure. However, maybe that is why Zappos is not responding to the numerous emails that many of us have recently sent them. Maybe they are busy whacking the 6PM program to match the Zappos program.

    What a shame..

    After the other threads that I have read just today, I will have to agree that 0% is better than nothing to some affiliates, as long as they can please their visitors by providing links to big merchants on their sites, even if those merchants work with parasites, or offer less than 1% commission, so I would not doubt for a minute that, "0% is better than nothing" for some affiliates.

    Talking
    They've raised their commission rate then.

    It was -2% and you owed them money for each sale.

    Now you break even with them.

    Mr. Sal - I noticed that some of your smilies that you use are parasites.

    Online shoe eCommerce giant Zappos.com is acquiring footwear and accessories site 6pm.com from eBags.com, which had launched the site in November 2005. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. The deal is the first acquisition for Zappos.com.

    Before you make any hasty decisions, you have to take many other variables into account. For example if the numbers looked like this:

    Action Referral Period 180 day(s)
    Action Referral Occurrences Unlimited
    3 Month EPC $112.04
    7 Day EPC $191.32

    I might consider looking at it again. Compared to some of the other programs I'm in this one could make...... Oh wait....

    I guess "0% is better than nothing" will become my catchphrase.
