Smooth Fitness is now offering a payment option for buying their fitness equipment. In the past the Smooth affiliate program has been very profitable, with a high conversion rate.
The problem with the payment option is that it is done through phone sales and not a shopping cart. Say good bye to affiliate sales. They are really encouraging that people take advantage of the payment option at the expense of shopping cart sales. In fact, it is hard to find the purchase button for regular shopping cart sales.
Is this having an impact? I have seen my conversion rate drop in half, and I notice that their earning per click is on the decline in CJ.
I am hoping this is a temporary promotion, that will end soon. Otherwise, I will have to redirect my traffic to other vendors. :(
