    Getting catalogs with no affiliate programs - How are they doing this?
    A couple of websites that I've noticed take catalogs without affiliate programs and are able to display them on their site.

    For instance:

    * ShopStyle has listings for Victoria Secret which doesn't have an affiliate program - http://www shopstyle.com/browse/womens-clothes?fl=r38

    * FashMatch and ShopStyle both have Forever 21 - fashmatch.com/findit.php?marc_id=270

    Which also doesn't have a program.

    I did a HTTP look at the ShopStyle links and there is no affiliate ID going through. I can only imagine they've built scrapers for each retailer, are there other companies that provide catalogs like this?

    They are probably paid placement, not affiliate links. There would be no incentive for them to post the links otherwise.

    How does paid placement typically work? Merchant approachs site or site approachs merchant and a custom feed is sent?

    Also a possibility is Linkconnector's technology http://www.linkconnector.com/nakedlink.htm . Although they would have to have an affiliate program with linkconnector.
