Richard,

I can't answer you about concurrent discounts but the advantage of  
using MacZOT is the exposure, MacZOT heavily visited and it's users  
will buy things on impulse, it's the same thing as appearing on a  
Magazine, you get a little review and a boost on your sales. People  
that come to your site looking for your software usually know what  
they are looking for, people on maczot will refresh that page every  
24hrs just to be surprised on offers.

If MacZOT policy about concurrent discount is unknown, nothing is  
stopping you from inserting some kind of announcement on your page  
for the duration of the sale like: "Just today buy our wonderful  
software thru MacZOT and receive a huge discount... ".

It's usually a one day promo, so you can make workarounds.

Andre
