Termination Letters

As the owner of ShareASale.com, one of the countries largest Affiliate Marketing Networks, I’ve unfortunately seen a lot of harm done to our industry with the inception of the State-level “Nexus” laws.

When Illinois passed their version of the law earlier this year (2011) we saw a flood of termination letters go by with Merchants of all sizes cancelling their Affiliate Marketing contracts in Illinois in order to avoid “nexus”.

This causes two things:

1. No nexus – no tax money for the state = no level playing field.

2. Affiliate Marketers lose their jobs.

I don’t think this is the “fair” thing to do – and it certainly isn’t productive.

I support a Federal solution and will help to get the job done.
