    LinkShare reporting delay- is it just me?
    New to Linkshare... wondering if the delay in reporting sales is normal, and how long the delay typically is?

    Had sales on the 28th not appear until Dec 5th. Sales on the 29th actually showed up on the 3rd of Dec.

    I'm really in need of recent reports, especially now since we're in the swing of the holidays.

    Tnx for any help.

    Also, check your merchants to see if they batch report...

    With LS, reporting differs greatly from merchant to merchant. None that I can remember report in real time like with other networks, most seem to report by the next morning, but some not for days or weeks after the fact, and not just for merchants who batch.

    There are lots of merchants who update 'live' - 'Live' being whenever LS updates...

    There are only a handful of LS merchants that I promote, none of them do any semblance of "live", nor were there any that I remember from the past, though there was a Salton appliance program years ago that converted really well and as I recall, they reported sales in the evening of the same day.

    It looks like LS did a 5 day update this morning.
    Reports are close but still wins no cigar!

    Well I'm positive one of the other merchants got at least one sale on CM, but I've not seen any reports at all from them. So I'll run and check to see if they do a batch report. I'd never thought to check; I just assumed everyone reported daily at least.
    There are only a handful of merchants I'm interested in through Linkshare anyway. CJ is doing well so far. Just waiting for a few of my "reallyreallyhopeIgetit"'s to approve my request. Love how fast they update.

    Our update came after hours last night/this morning. Huge fricken difference - 33% JUMP - going back to the December 2 (Which was actually Cyber Monday based on our time stamp and the seven our difference in LS' reporting time and our server times)...

    Mine did not update over night.
    Frustrating. I think the only one on there worth keeping is Walmart. Which apparently does batch reporting. *sigh*
