(I hope this is the correct forum for this rant, if it isn't I apologize.)
I've been an AllPosters.com affiliate for over 10 years now, way before they were taken over by Art.com (actually it was an AllPosters rep who solicited me to join their program). It hasn't been a huge revenue generator but I was able to make some money with them, and their commission rate was generous compared to a lot of other programs.
I was infuriated to learn last week that in September they deleted $16.06 in commissions I had earned and left me with a dollar in the account because I hadn't earned $20 in commissions in a year's time. I wrote them and told them I was getting rid of a dedicated poster page that links from my main page, and also deleting over 800 links to them on other review pages on my site (actually I just changed everything to an Amazon aStore for posters).
Any Amazon sales are going to be at a much smaller commission than AllPosters, but at least I'm not giving them traffic and the opportunity to delete $19.99 from my account because that stupid $20 minimum rule in the fine print.
It reminds me of the crap Commission Junction would pull when I was signed up with them ages ago, that's why I've always hated them too.
