    Thumbs up
    Sweet -- looks very promising. Now if they can also speed up the payment cycle (which is different from cutting checks every two weeks) I'd (re-) jump onto LS like a wild banchee!!

    I hope to one day see real time reporting, that's the one thing I really want. The new interface looks better, not sure when it goes live.

    It's about time!

    Now, does this mean that a new advertiser interface is coming soon, as well?

    It's live now, anything is better than the old dog of an interface they used to have.. looks ok on first look but checking it out now....

    edit: ok they now show 7 day & 3 month EPC in the Get Links page

    You can hover over the merchant name and now you have a quick way of going straight to text links, banners, products etc all from the first page so you don't have to click through to the merchant first, nice!

    You also have a tab to get datafeeds & web services on the links page.

    Here is a BIG one, you now can select multi links and get the code

    I think the horrible links are gone, you know where it has the code for a space all through the link code.

    I don't understand the datafeed link, I can't seem to see where to get the datafeed in there?

    Reports, Nice to see all my months commissions show up as soons as the report page loads... looks good.

    The links page is the big improvement for me, nice to see lots of new features, you can select coupons, free shipping etc.

    On first impressions I have to say it looks like they have done a great job

    THIS IS A DISASTER!!!!!

    Just try to get individual product links now. It will be impossible.

    No more go to merchant site and create links, just long, unmanageable lists to go through to try to find what you want.

    It IS possible. Click on the advertiser name to go to the Advertiser Details page and Click on LinkBuilder.

    What Billy said! The only problem I saw was a little "edit" pop didn't open enough in Firefox.

    Wow! I'm REALLY impressed!

    Some thought went into this!

    And some consideration for those of us who have to use it on a daily basis.

    It's... "inviting"... makes me WANT to go there and get links and explore the possibilites

    This is so beautiful, I just might cry. *sniff sniff* It's not perfect (yet), but it's a vast improvement over the last interface.

    Looky there! I can see my balance total up in the corner there! Marketing Channels page, nicely done. No more crappy channel tree display thingy that confused the hell out of me at first. Yay! A missing payment alert thing on the Payment tab. Did they have that option before? Because if they did, I missed it. Lovin' the payment history page... Get Links is better too. Wow.

    If they had a lot of this functionality before, I didn't notice it because the design was just crappy. They really did a good job with the layout so it's very user friendly.

    This might make me work more with LS merchants. That's a scary thought!

    I must say also they put some though in this new interface.
    It seems well organized. Much easier to find a new merchant and join than before.
    I'm not crazy about the reports (cut & paste from Synergy Analytics)
    I can't find how to build my own links with my merchants.
    Is the EPC my own, or the merchant EPC?

    We're so used to expect a disaster at each modification that this one looks great.

    PS: I found how to build individual links, it's called LinkBuilder with a logo. The images are broken right now, but it should work like the old one

    Very Cool! I like this SOOOOO much better! I agree with whoever used the word INVITING. Massive improvement from old both visually and functionality.
    Just in time to get a bunch of pats on the back in Vegas....imagine the timing of that?!
