CDnow on June 5 relaunches its Cosmic Credit affiliate program using the ePod Showcase from ePod. The ePod Showcase is a site-within-a-site that enables users to access content and purchase products online without leaving the site they are on. Under the deal, CDnow's Cosmic Credit affiliates are able to run two ePod showcases with music news, reviews and CDs users can buy. The ePod showcases on affiliate sites will include links to CDnow. The relaunch comes as CDnow traded below $3 a share, an all-time low; the ailing company appeared last week on a Goldman Sachs list of e-tailers facing a cash crunch and questionable prospects for remaining independent.
