    Compliance Testing?
    What does it indicate when a merchant shows "Last Compliance Testing April 10th"? I have a few merchants showing their last compliance testing was weeks ago. They are online.

    I have submitted trouble tickets in June and I got a response saying that SAS will look at it and let me know. That was over a week ago. I understand that the staff is probably busy but this seems to be a routine question.

    It could mean compliance with their Terms and Conditions , like PPC bidding, redirects or what ever else is in their ToCs

    I'm pretty sure that if SAS were to check into each affiliate's compliance with each merchant's TOS they wouldn't have resources to do anything else. Compliance testing is shown on each merchant's stats before you sign up with them so that has to be testing done to ensure merchant's compliance with something, but I can't guess what or why some don't need to do it.

    I believe it is a test to make sure the tracking pixel is working.

    2busy,

    It does involve the tracking pixel and indicates that we received successful results of a test at that time. Not having a pixel from that long a period of time could indicate a problem.
    Thanks,

    Thank you, I thought that was what it indicated. That's why I opened a trouble ticket, but they read the same today as they did then and I haven't had any further response except that it would be looked into. Time to pull links.
