It mostly depends on who your using, but not always.

For example:
A well written ad on Google that is very descriptive of what you have will pull in a good ROI.

Where the same ad on lets say 7Search will not give you little if any results.

I hate to bring this up as I'm sure your company has already completed the start up process.

The most important part is the ground work before you even start, which is price comparisons with other sites that sale the same products as you.

Then there is the demand of your product, is there enough consumers interested in your product?

If you get past the first two you get to the website design.
Is it easy to use, does it load fast enough, are the colors of the website reflective of your products.

Then finally is your shopping cart friendly, secure and easy to use or does it scare people off.

If all of the above are all cool then I would look at who you are advertising with.

Here are our most recent experiences.

Google is good but has to be watched.
Yahoo has had some really poor results
7Search a total waste of time
Shopping.com good if your prices are low.
Have not tried Ask, but seem to get great results with the traffic that we receive from them.

Dave maybe try moving some of your yahoo budget or shopping.com budget over to Clickriver.com for a trial.
They run on amazon and have a handsome roi over here.

We use Clickriver, and they work well for us on our sites that accept Amazon payments as it is Amazon traffic.
The conversion on our sites that have standard checkout have below average results with Clickriver.

Just the same traffic from MSN will not convert on our Amazon sites but will get really pull in high conversions on our standard sites.

Overall is guess the best thing is to offer as many different processors and methods together without confusing the buyer.

2Checkout does a fairly good job of this, not that I would use 2Checkout, but just as an example of a checkout system.
