That was my opinion and my answer to that question. That it will never be successful if you expect affiliates to work just for credits towards purchase of products in your store.
Sort of like in the old days, when for example coal miners were paid partly in 'script', which they could use as payment only towards groceries in the expensive company store.
Without cash payout, no affiliates.
