The influence of breakup channels on the complete fusion of weakly bound systems is investigated in terms of dynamic polarization potentials. The systematic enhancement of the cross section at sub-barrier energies seems to be consistent with recent experimental observations that nucleon transfer, often leading to breakup, is dominant compared to direct breakup at this energy regime. At energies above the barrier, the repulsive polarization potential due to direct breakup predominates and complete fusion is suppressed.
