|We will be dedicating engineers to build features|
Freelancer.com makes money on every gig that goes down, so why would they leave money on the table here on WF? Third party sites like warriorplus and JVzoo have made millions, by offering these services, so why not the WF?
People are screaming about a ratings system, which can be gamed just like the first page of WSO's are littered with cronies and people, who's sole purpose there is to kiss ass. But with an affiliate platform, they can give Warriors access to stats, like amount of sales, refund rates and other stats that can't be manipulated so easy.
Like I said I am only guessing, but I can't see the new owners allowing that kind of money to leak to third party platforms, I would put the probability at 100% that it's in the works
Would it be good for us? I think so competition is always good, especially when sellers have been building these 3rd party processors a monster list, that they use to make money from our products, before sellers can even send out the "it's live" email.
Of course I will feel like a jack ass if they don't build an affiliate platform, but no way they leave that kind of money one the table, especially when you have the engineers in house to do so. You can only make so much money from banners and WSO fee's. They can easily double or triple their revenue by building an in house affiliate platform
