After making the 2Q loss, drop @ stock market and introducing LiveHelp popup (which claims the cookie for themselves!) the comissions from Overstock are now negligible, if any. The official OS explanation on one forum (paraphrased) is that LiveHelp employees are expensive, so they have to save on comissions (by not paying it at all)!
Is there any similar el cheapo honest program out there? If not allowed to post, please sticky me.
CJ has at least one similar merchant but the number of return day is 1, whereas O is 14.
O simply screw the things up. In the last 35 days, I managed to track buyers out of my site up to the secure O's checkout; out of 73 orders, not a SINGLE sale was reported! I am not talking about ordinary link clicks, but about cases where the buyer chosed the product, shipping method and left the shopping cart towards checkout. The same tracking method uncovered many CJ merchants doing the same thing and that was actually the reason for my try with OS. In CJ I found only TWO reliable merchants in the electronics field. Unfortunately they don't have so broad range of products for my needs. Currently, I am busy replacing complete OS' db with Amazon's, but due to different formats, it took me already a few (lost) days.
It seems that massive fraud is going around, where the publishers are huge victims and networks just don't care.
