    Question Orange links
    The orange links are a great feature, just one annoyance I have in the email header or body it should have the advertisers name.

    All it says now is "You have orange links available"

    in the body "Please find attached OrangeLinks feed."

    How about putting the advertisers name in there someplace so we don't have to open the file to find out?

    Hello Bob,

    In many instances affiliates sign-up for all approved advertisers in their Orange Links file. Therefore, they will see multiple advertisers in the file.

    Thank you,

    Bob,

    As Jamie mentioned, many advertisers may be represented in a single OrangeLinks feed so I don't think it would be feasible to include the information in the email subject.

    However, we probably could include a summary in the text of the email to the effect of:

    This feed contains links from the following advertiser(s):

    Adv1 (# links)
    Adv2 (# links)
    ...

    Would that be useful?

    It's great to see PFX respond this fast, thanks

    Hey Bob, why would a merchant be getting Orangelinks for multiple merchants? Do you have multiple merchants on Performics and want to keep track of them or what?

    aren't you a performics advertiser? don't you think it would be better to work with them directly than commenting here about their program? If you have issues why did you choose them.

    just my 2 cents, but to me this look shoddy.

    Only one merchant account and we have a test affiliate account to make sure the system is delivering our coupon links, database and offers correctly.

    This is the Pfx forum to discuss issues with them and how these issues affect affiliates.

    So feedback to them from affiliates is great, such feedback would not be available to them otherwise.

    Of course we work directly with support too.

    I don't get my OrangeLinks via email so I guess it's heard to appreciate your question. We get them delivered by ftp to our server and never see anything but a feed with links and other data including the Merchant Name.

    I can't give a hard date unfortunately. I've added it to our feature requests and we'll try to squeeze it in. But there are a lot of small enhancements like these that people have requested that are vying for attention.

    Thanks,
    Larry
