    All test orders were delivered and never showed up on the reports at BeFree for LensXpress and Smartbargains. They obviously cannot record or refuse to report sales so drop them like a hot potato. Over 1 years worht of traffic and ZERO sales so they are thieves in my book til they step forward and pay every affiliate a penalty charge. BeFREE has no anti-fraud team in place and no willingness to verify sales activity for their merchants. Only TigerDirect's and ComputerGeeks special coding efforts makes their reports accurate as to sales. All the other 84 I display suck big time.

    I'm writing this blind since I haven't been able to get to the reports in the last 2 weeks over refusal to give ValueClick/Befree all my private information right down to Bank account & routing information. Hey Befree wanks lurking here ..wanna bet the total sales for Smartbargains is still ZERO and my balance due at LensXpress is 24.88

    We have also not received our commission due to us since May 1, 2002.
    It says awaiting funds.
    I sent an email to Maura, in charge of Affiliate programs at Lens Express, who by the way used to be very nice, but have not received any reply.

    I am wondering what is going on at Lens Express, beats my mind

    If BeFree tried to install a merchant sales report monitoring system, that set off alarms or a red flashing light when no slaes show up for a week at a time, they'd have to unplug it after the first week. Non-converting merchants must not bother their bottom line like at LS and CJ.

    I've had only one sale reported by Lens Express in two years. Probably cuz it was my own purchase. :mad: Time to move them southward on the page or let them drop off entirely.

    johnniebry you've found the secret to a high conversion merchant. 1 sale per 11 clicks is great! Now just dedicate a complete section of your site to them and pay for some keyword traffic and you'll be rich!

    For Smartbargains, I have sales listed, but commissons are $0?? And they are not listed as returned sales. Just shows the sales amounts but no commissions for them.

    Seems like they just decided they got the orders but don't want to pay.

    Sorry your few sales Connie show no commissions. I can't verify that's a normal glitch, since my 1412 clicks produced no sales since January. They have a nice site with some great bargains but no sales from my savvy shoppers. Good one for Befree compliance to look into with some test purchases. There site was down for maintenance today so maybe they fixed something by accident.

    I have not had a problem with Smartbargains as far as commissions showing (even on my own personal purchase.) However I have yet to see a check....will keep you posted.
