I just received the following from the BlockB*uster affiliate program: This is a notice to inform you that the commission payout to all publishers in the Blockb*uster Affiliate program will be lowered by $10.00 per sale. Blockb*uster is choosing to lower the payout rate so that they can stay competitive within the affiliate channel. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause; however, we hope these changes will help with your overall conversion rate. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about these changes. Thank you, Blockb*uster Affiliate Team Members A $10 cut is pretty big. I wonder how they think this will help with our overall conversion rate. My guess is people will promote it less.
