    Hi all

    Just a quick question. I stumbled upon Bonanza's affiliate program: they have a 6% commission rate but the one thing I can't wrap my head around is that their selling fees is something like 3.5%.

    So, on an order of $100, Bonanza's profits are $3.5, but they pay their affiliate $6, making the whole program unprofitable for them. I must be missing something, right?
