We all can come up with lists like that. Well, those of us , who take trading seriously. I'd say keep it to yourself, as sharing this list would be a major violation of all the agreements. You can not tell people what offers on what sites to do. You can get banned from A4F and from sites you are working on for doing that. There is even a specific term for this kind of activity. It's called ''walking through''.
I know you're not supposed to walk people through, or suggest which offers to do. That's not at all what this would be, as no offer would be promoted, highlighted, or in any way set apart from the rest of them. It's just a listing of ALL offers that are available on each of the sites with additional details of each offer. No rating of the offers or putting them in any order other than alphabetical. So I can't see how that would be a violation as I wouldn't be suggesting to anyone which offers to do. Merely providing them, in one single place, with all the information already available. Maybe putting the details of each offer could loosely
be seen as "walking through". Anyway. As I read and reread the TOS, I won't be surprised if I do indeed come across something that would make this idea a violation. That said, I will keep looking at those Terms to see if there is anything that would prohibit such a thing. I think maybe I should contact a couple of the networks, too, so they can weigh in on it.
The whole thing stems from the fact that I want to be able to search a database for items that I already want to buy AND from the fact that I do not want to inadvertently duplicate an offer by not knowing which products are the same product that's simply under a different brand name. Well, and to help my plot my course.
Thanks marharyta for your input. I will definitely use this only for myself unless
it turns out that it would be okay with the networks/sites.
Edit: Just found a post that said noting the contact phone number can help with determining which offers may be related. What a helpful tip!
