    I've got a decent niche that I believe I can do well with. All the stats,
    traffic, searches etc all appear to be on the up-and-up.

    I've found what appears to be the best affiliate offer in that niche....

    lowest price to the consumer --
    largest selection --
    best warranty--
    best price guarantee--
    free shipping --
    free bonuses--

    best commision structure --
    decent profit per sale

    all the makings of a good offer and affiliate program except.....

    they have a toll free 24hr order hotline listed on all the pages in their site & in your face -- my guess is a decent amt of people would rather call then to order online. This presents a significant commision leakage to the affiliate, as im sure they are not asking for referal codes and such. The affiliate ends up losing his commision.

    fyi theyve got 100s of products, so rebuilding an entire site would be worse case -- i guess. you tell me.

    how would you recommend I go about making the sales without exposing my customer to their toll free order line?

    thanks in advance guys...

    the order form page has the phone number as well.
    and they've got a nice 2 step upsell menu prior to check out,
    so ideally, id incorporate this as well.

    ideas?

    My guess would be that most of the people would rather order online. It's easier to just order online. You might lose a few sales here and there to that but you should give it a go.

    Why don't you call the number yourself and see what they do? Some programs are good about trying to figure out which site referred the customer.
