    Thumbs up We Have Inactive Merchant Link Handling
    In a matter of days from initial concept David rolled out "Inactive Merchant Link Handling" functionality for Affiliates.

    AvantLink Affiliates have always had the option of sorting to, and browsing “My Inactive Merchants”, but now there is an option on that page to “Configure inactive link handling” as well.

    This allows for previously crude error pages as a result of inactive Affiliates links, to now 1) show a listing of similar merchants, 2) send traffic directly to an alternate merchant or 3) send traffic to a custom page of the Affiliate's choice.

    Check out our blog for the full article and information on how to handle inactive link behavior: Inactive Merchant Link Handling

    This looks great. We could actually leave links up if we had good search position and point the traffic where we want until we had time to deal with it.

    This is stellar Gary, addresses a reoccurring issue I have to deal with in other networks.
