Affiliate Window Updates Its Transaction Notification System

Affiliate Window currently offers its publishers a real-time reporting feature which ensures that every time a transaction is recorded, a notification is sent to the publishers system with all the relevant details associated to the transaction and the products associated with the sale. We have released a new method that makes it even easier for publishers to begin benefiting from the transaction notification feature.

Tax Update

Amazon began collecting sales tax in Florida on May 1. Meanwhile the Internet tax resurfaced in Illinois, which could hurt Chicago-based Groupon. Keeping track of the tax laws in each state can be confusing, as some states only force selected large retailers to collect from consumers. Most of the legislatures have finished for the summer, so new legislation cannot be introduced until the fall; however this is a time when individual legislators draft new bills and search for co-sponsors.

Keep up to date with the hot topics being debated within performance marketing and all the goings on at Affiliate Window headquarters by reading our monthly wrap ups each month. See you next time.
