This is based on this thread: http://www.bricklink.com/messageThread.asp?ID=128729
that discussed this idea in general. There were no opinions posted opposing
allowing non-retail, non-competitive sites to link to and refer visitors to BrickLink
stores.

I have no conflict of interest in Brickset. As an independent seller, I'm simply
proposing another way to draw traffic to BrickLink.

This suggestion would enable Brickset to 1) display the BL inventory detail and
part pictures for any set, 2) link from the parts to the BL catalog page for
that part, and 3) provide links to stores with those parts for sale on
BrickLink. Brickset would sell link placements similar to the existing Peeron
business model. Orders on BrickLink would show the "Referred by www.brickset.com"
message on the bottom of the order detail.

Per the discussion in the other thread, this suggestion applies only to this
one site. Other sites would need separate forum suggestion threads.

If you have a comment relating to a Brickset relationship, post it here.
If you have a general comment about the concept, please post it to the
original thread.

Thanks. -Jason

[...] The time should be taken to look at how BO has used affiliates to drive traffic, and increase orders... If this has not already been discussed. - Cora.
