Earlier this year I was doing a very involved project integrating Post Affiliate Pro and Modern Bill when I came across a problem…
Cookies were disappearing.
And if affiliates aren’t making sales… they’re going to move on to a competitor that has the services and the tracking systems in place to monetize that traffic.
Luckily, I’d come across this before when writing my own PHP apps. You see, if you don’t know what you’re doing when you’re setting a cookie, chances are that you’re not going to get your desired end result. Continue reading →
A few months back I got a voice mail message from the creator of Idev Affiliate, Jim Webster. He believed that some of my comments about Post Affiliate Pro versus Idev Affiliate didn’t add up and he wanted to know where I got some of my information.
I’m finalizing the password protected section of my site and uploading the videos to my server. Over the past several months I’ve discovered even better ways to install Post Affiliate Pro to make it easier to attract your own affiliates.

You’re looking for every possible edge when it comes to search engine optimization and you’ve read that stupid Mr. Googlebot gets confused and doesn’t give you as much credit for those backlinks as if they all pointed to the exact same url. Continue reading →
Basically, the problem was/is that the new affiliate tracking system 1shoppingcart.com switched to is losing track of some of the affiliate information, and as a result, affiliates are losing money they should be entitled to.
Nothing angers an affiliate marketer more than pulling off a successful promotion only to have problems getting credit for the sales.
