Are there guys who work in this way?
How do you manage your partners, making sure they follow up efficiently and promptly?
Is there a "guideline" we can use to educate parters as to how they should respond to enquiries that come off the web sites?

Even if you have your own unique phone number - this will still happen. Stick to electronic tracking from start to finish and go with a supplier who is recommended by someone already in the business.
