I keep getting invalid image code when I try to sign up for linkshare. I think they might have a php problem

Billy Kay April 17th, 2008 04:41 PM

So... er... with this new wonderful support system...

how long after the stated "one business" day should an affiliate actually have to wait for a response?

I count 17 days so far :)

This thread is a sticky. Are your images turned off?

We are having a very hard time figuring out what the merchants we want to work with want from us. We aren't pornographic and we have a very nice website, great niche and synergistic business model. So we are hurt AND disappointed when we get a rejection a nanosecond later. We are even more hurt when we don't hear back when trying to reach affiliate managers. But now we are mystified because we understand we were rejected by Montgomery Ward. But MW shows up on our email list with an asterisk. But when we search for MW in LinkShare - nothing comes up. What does it all mean??


Zeus August 21st, 2008 12:03 PM

"with an asterisk." It means deactivated, gone or on hold

BTshoes August 21st, 2008 12:13 PM

Montgomery ward
Do you mean THEY are deactivated from LinkShare?


Zeus August 21st, 2008 12:22 PM

Yes, they are. I checked my own merchant list and they are listed as deactivated.

HuckIt August 21st, 2008 04:57 PM

You are getting instant automatic rejections from merchants who have established criteria (traffic level, geography, and marketing channel [blog, ppc, coupon, etc.] among others) that your site does not meet. If you haven't identified your site in the LinkShare profile with compatible parameters for that merchant, the system will send you an automatic temporary rejection notice.

Don't be hurt - contact the program manager and ask them to specifically review the site you are planning to use to market their product or service. Show them exactly where on the site their placement will go. Give them some sense of your plan, reach, and scope. I would guess that you'll get at least 50% of those programs to accept you after that. Also, give them time to respond - many large programs get 100's of approval requests a day.

What you shouldn't do (and I'm not saying you are... I've just gotten a lot of this lately) is send a reply to the automatic rejection that is hostile, dismissive, or otherwise unprofessional. That's a great way to get anything from a zero response to a permanent block from their program.

It would be nice if some of the merchants auto approved affiliates, nothing worse than joining a network specifically for one affiliate only to find out you have been auto rejected

I need your help

popdawg December 1st, 2014 07:25 PM

Might want to use the contact info provided above...although a 6 year old thread with the last post 4 years ago wouldn't be my first option to get help. :)

Just checked their contact page and everything looks good here but for the record if you need to get them, their most up to date deets are here: Rakuten Contact Page
