That's not the issue @hotbots. I don't believe.
The problem is forcing people to dish out money in order to promote it.
That is nothing new at all. It's just that some payment processors such
as PayPal is taking their own policies more literal than in the past.
I have had long chats with payment processors and merchant account providers, its the attached affiliate programs that is the red flag.
They want the affiliate program completely separate from the site.
Though I do agree the fact that different levels get different com levels exasperates the problem. The fix as they see it is not having the affiliate program inbuilt, but run by independent 3rd party sites that they will have better control over.
As a software developer Its our job to keep up with changes in the IM space including payment processors, so we make sure we are in dialogue with the right people...
This is becoming such a strong movement towards aff program separation by the payment processors, that we are already looking at rewriting our software products to make the affiliate part of it a separate plugin that can be run through (hopefully our own) 3rd party program.
You may not like this boys and girls but that is the reality
