Welcome to our ecommerce engine! At BetterDogFood.COM, we give you the
dog and then sell you the dogfood.
Here, we sell you other stuff!
(At least we tried to sell you other stuff, but then our ecommerce provider
went out of business.)

Subject: Important information regarding your Affinia Storefront
August 31, 2000
To All Affinia Customers,
We regret to inform you that Affinia is discontinuing its operations. As
a result, we are terminating all contracts with our content site partners
as of today, August 31, 2000, for both the Affinia Storefront service
and the Affinia Product Placement Network (PPN). Affinia will honor all
financial obligations to content sites accrued through August 31, 2000
via a final payment later this month. And because this is our last payment,
we will extend our payment "floor" to $20.00, rather than the customary
To minimize the impact of this change for you (and your site), Affinia
will continue to host existing Storefronts and to serve product placements
to PPN member sites until September 8, 2000. However, please keep in mind
that you will be paid for Storefront and PPN activity only through August 31,
2000. Please remove any and all links to these services from your site as
soon as possible. As of September 8, 2000, any links to Affinia services
will result in "broken" images or web site referral errors.
Thank you all for helping us to build some truly innovative merchandising
services. We are sorry that we were unable to find a way to continue to
offer them in today's marketplace.
