    Cyber Monday, and LinkShare is down.
    Linkshare publisher interface has been down about half an hour so far. Great timing.

    Login is temporarily unavailable at this time.



    We apologize for the inconvenience and are working to restore service as soon as possible. Please try again later. Please be assured that all clicks and transactions continue to be tracked during this time.



    Thank you for your patience.

    Sorry for the inconvenience
    Hi Affninja,

    Due to heavy volume the system is slower than normal but all clicks and transactions are being tracked. Sorry you're experiencing issues.

    Thanks,

    LinkShare has problem loading everyday even 5 in the morning, so it would be silly to think that it would be available on days when more then 5-6 affiliates need to get links links for their sites.
    MERCHANTS: Start showing your coupons directly on your site, that way your shoppers will stop leaving your site looking for them!! If not then remove your Coupon Box!!

    Krystyna, not to derails this thread, but does ANYONE at Linkshare have any response to
    THIS devastating anti-affiliate action committed by LS and your merchant partner?

    Interface is back up. LS partner Buy.com still screwing affiliates with change to 1% commissions.

    Also 0% commission rate on about 1 million items. Buy.com just isn't a LinkShare partner, they ARE Linkshare, so pulling a fast one like this reflects poorly on LinkShare as a whole. I suspect Rakuten is transitioning Buy.com away from carrying inventory and into just being an marketplace, affiliate, and price comparison portal. If this is true, they didn't handle the transition very well. They needed to move to a PPC compensation model like Shopping.com or better yet, eBay.

    Merchants, any data you provide to Google Shopping should also be in your affiliate network datafeed. More data means more sales!

    Add this to the pile. Just got this in an e-mail:

    Dear Prosperent,

    We regret to inform you that the Designer Clearance Offer you opted into did not track from Friday, November 23rd through the morning of Monday, November 26th due to a technical error.

    We pushed 90 million (yes million) clicks to merchants during those 3 days.

    LinkShare is the only network that I am a member of that has slow reporting this year. Amazon is on time, eBay is on time, CJ is on time, ShareASale is on time, Pepperjam seems to be ok, GAN is ok. LinkShare is falling behind...

    I'm waiting for Wal-Mart's results. It is 7:42PM and I can see the sales but not the commissions.

    Frankly, I'm getting tired of LinkShare's poor performance. Their datafeed downloads are so slow that it takes me an extra day to update LinkShare merchant pricing and their reporting is so slow that it takes me another day to react to ROI changes.

    Hey Linkshare, you guys need to get your act together or you will be out of business soon...
