    Upscale Lighting Phone Sale Leak
    Is this a phone sale leak? Really looks like it is as they don't offer phone tracking and ad shows on affiliate link referrals. But I guess it's okay because it's only for one week.

    Well the sale may be for only one week. But what happens next week? Another sale? It also looks like their phone number is permanently affixed at the top of the page. So, YES IT IS A LEAK.

    Shareasale has a phone tracking script that displays the referring affiliate ID, so you might want to send a message to the AM requesting they add that if they are going to promote closing sales on the phone rather than online.

    I've found it to be an uphill battle to try and convince a merchant to implement phone tracking (been there done that, many times). Especially when they offer phone sale incentives like this. I've already recommended to my affiliate clients to remove any links and data feeds from their sites and I would suggest that anyone currently promoting Upscale Lighting to consider doing the same.

    The only way merchants are going understand how affiliate's benefit their bottom line is when their actions to circumvent legitimate affiliate traffic and commissions is revealed and in turn affiliates no longer send them free traffic.

    Get rid of them and find another merchant that sells lighting.
