I was just wondering if anybody of you had any experience with the affiliate program of ?

It is just, that so far I have sent them over 3000 visitors from to their website but I only got $ 60.00 out of it.

I guess I have to trust them that they they did not have any success with my referrals however there is no way to verify this.

I look forward to your comments

You should be looking to achieve a conversion rate of about 1% - 3000 uniques = 30 sales.

If they are running an Affiliate Program that is worth anything, you should also have access to details of those sales transactions - either online or offline. That way you can see both the number of sales that have taken place and how that $60 is comprised.

If they cannot provide such information, I would be asking questions. Let's face it I bet they would not accept an invoice from a supplier without a breakdown of costs/charges.

This is precisely why I will not send traffic to any merchants trying to go down the cheapie route of using an independant Affiliate Program rather than an Affiliate Network.

Can I suggest you experiment moving the text-ads on the left of your page to the centre of your main copy, perhaps under an image. May help your conversion rate (you should aim for a 2% CTR).
