What do we do about all these coupon sites that steal our affiliate commissions like couponrefund and others.
There are many affiliate companies through share-a-sale & commission junction that only offer coupon codes periodically, or don't offer coupons for affiliates -- so we are out of luck anytime they come to the checkout screen and see the Enter Coupon text field -- then they say "Oh OK! Let me go to Google and type in "Company name" coupon... then they click on one of the coupon sites...and almost all of them have a button stating "Activate Offer" -or "Click here for coupon" -- And then they get redirected to the same site we referred them to... with their new affiliate link, and ours dropping off.
And most of the time they aren't even getting that coupon that they promised -- but it doesn't matter, because they are still getting the sale... And you are not!
But what is worst of all, is that they could have spent weeks on your site reading 1000 word articles... watching videos... etc... and then they decide to purchase through your link -- and they click the 'order button' and go through the whole purchase process until they see apply coupon -- then they go to google... type it in and get a stupid ugly coupon site with ABSOLUTELY NO CONTENT -- except a few False-Hope Coupon promises....(and they are only on that site for a few seconds) -- but they made the SALE!
And this is SCARY, because a lot of people now know to go to Google to look for coupons now -- so God knows how many sales we are losing from this!?!
Someone Please tell me that I am wrong!? And if I'm not, please tell me their is way to rectify it?
