    Chillini,

    Not sure what you mean exactly... if you are referring to the process of actually tracking the sales - that is done on the merchant end and not something that you do.
    Thanks,

    Yes, I was referring to being able to track a sale/lead by placing a pixel on the 'thank you' page. So merchants won't allow this if we ask them about it? If so that would be really unfortunate as I had setup some tracking software (tracking202) and would need it in order to use it properly.

    I don't know of any retail merchants that will allow an affiliate to place a pixel on the merchant thank you page.

    They would also have to rewrite their entire site to set it up so that only people you reffer get that tracking pixel. I doublt any would do it. Heck I don't even put tracking pixels on my site I strip em.

    Well it appears other networks do it, just wondering if SAS is the same.

    There are CPA networks that offer the post back notification.

    The postback is not done by the merchant to the affiliate, it's done from the CPA network to the affiliate when a transaction is recorded on the affiliate account. General information including the sid is passed back to the affiliates website script which records the post back... you'll see this frequently with rebate/incentive sites.

    I'm guessing this is a built in feature of directtrack based on the cpa networks that offer the feature.
