Yes, we had our meetings.

The Affiliate Program is a GO, and we will be working on that as one of the top projects.

The Wishlists Program didn't make the cut unfortunately, so we will be phasing that out.

We will be having more updates soon!

Not yet, but optimizing sites and fixing errors is on the list.

I'm disappointed to hear that wish lists have been discontinued. With the rise of cam sites, I thought using models to sign up and promote their wish list on their pages was a great idea to bring in traffic and create brand awareness for our sites. It just needed a better layout.

Anyway if you guys have another meeting these are some issues I have that I hope you guys can address:

1. Be able to delete created pages and also stores that you no longer want.

2. Make it possible to change the store code. I setup my first non-domain site when adultshopping.com opened without knowing that I wouldn't be able to unlock it/change it to my main site in the future.

3. For email signups, it would be great to have our banner show up on the top of each email that goes out instead of our "Website Name". Or give the option to pick.

4. Maybe have an option to turn off all "Out Of Stock" items so when people click a category they no longer see them on the bottom. This will make some uniqueness which could help in rankings.

5. Bring back the option to "lock domain name to affiliate code". This was my code showing up in the link structure of my URL. This seems to have disappeared when you guys moved to adultshopping.com

6. Bring back the "Show Themes" option. This was where you guys would occasionally use imagery around holidays to make the homepage stand out more. I thought it gave an overall more fun feel to the homepage.

I see that more updates are coming soon which is great! Any chance they will be here this month? Thanks again.

Extra: Something else I just thought of that would be very cool is when we make a new page it always stands out without the standard left sidebar. How about when we populate that page when adding a "Product List" it takes those attributes from all the products listed and then makes a unique sidebar on the left side just like every other page. Just an idea.

I am very sad to hear that wishlists did not make the cut and will go away.

I completely agree with deanmoney about wishlists: "With the rise of cam sites, I thought using models to sign up and promote their wish list on their pages was a great idea to bring in traffic and create brand awareness for our sites."

Is there an ability for people to buy giftcards for our websites that can be emailed to the recipient?

Wishlist were dicontinued because they cost us money to run. We had numerous product returns, and cam performers not picking up their orders, and we had to pay for the return of the products to the US warehouses. Plus, after working with the largest cam site on the internet it proved not to be very profitable, and more work that it was worth.

No we will not be doing gift certificates. We did in the past and they agian were not worth the effort.

I agree that Gift Certificates were a pain and really not worth the headache when I ran my own store (was not an affiliate).

However I never really looked at wishlists as the actual money / sales maker ... meaning that 300 wishlists were not generating 300 quality sales from THOSE actual wishlists ... but those 300 wishlists created 900 clicks on the website and (back then) there was a percentage of those 900 clicks that just bought something for themselves at some point. So while I agree that the wishlist it self (dealing with it and the person receiving the goods etc) was just a pain in the butt ... I did get sales from the people visiting the site to look at other peoples wishlist then deciding to just buy for them self.

I bring all this up not because I'm trying to change your mind about bringing back the wishlist, but to say "wouldn't it be great to still get the traffic that a wishlist can provide without the headache of the wishlist".

Meaning bridging the porn viewer to be a sex toy buyer is tough, and the wishlist seemed to be one of those bridges that had a little traction. While I have no idea what would be a good replacement for the wishlist (porn viewer to be a sex toy buyer) it would be great to have a tool like the wishlist to do that.

Yes, I agree Dan O, and I would like to keep Wishlists myself as I do see a lot of potential. But the old Wishlist were so outadted and the program needed a complete redo from scratch, then the $$ to redo it, the hassle of the Wishlists themselves and the $$ lost on shipping, all made the idea of redoing the Wishlists not feasable.

If you do come up with other ideas, we are always open to hear them!

Default Wishlist Work-Around!

As 80% of my sales came from Wishlists & E-Gift Cert.'s, I too am extremely disappointed that they will not be offered again....
So in the mean time, as a work-around of sorts... You could promote the Amazon Universal Wishlist Button on your sites.. Those with an Amzn Wishlist can always install this Browser Add-On from Amazon and ultimately add Your Sites' Products to their Amzn Wishlists..

More Info from Amzn at:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/custom...deId=200264210

Hope this helps some of you!

I have thought about that (Amazon Wishlist) ... but truly think that you would be losing many sales to Amazon because of price ... and if we are being honest the best deal for the Cam girl is for her to be an Amazon Assoc and get the 7% referral fee ... so really we already fight Amazon in the retail world I would not more reasons to fight them.
