    SAS is at the top of the list for reliability and honesty when it comes to tracking, far surpassing what most affiliates believe goes on with CJ, Linkshare and eBay Enterprise Network.

    There could be many, many reasons why your visitors are not translating into sales. Do some reading here and I'm sure that you will find many possibilities, and many suggestions as to how to improve your conversation rate.

    SAS has a lot of terrible merchants on their network that are not converting and/or tracking sales, but they have a lot of good one's as well.

    With SAS what you have to do for each merchant you are (or want to) promote is to go to the merchants full page profile ant look at the following information:

    Last Commissionable Transaction through Affiliate:
    Last Compliance Test Completed:

    If you do not see resent dates in the above then their is an issue with the merchant.

    Also look at:

    EPC (100)
    Reversal Rates
    Average Sale
    Average Commission

    Note: At least SAS provides us this information which is great, a lot of other networks gives us nothing, such as LinkShare & PJ/eBay and I sure their are others....

    That may be your problem you are working with to many merchants, hand pick a few and spent time promoting them.

    Bit confused here are you an "Affiliate" or "Merchant" ??

    Plus you said in your first post you are promoting 20 SAS merchants and then you say you have to go thru hundreds of Merchants (I guessing you meant to say merchants not affiliates) ??

    Just a quick comment here, If you're using datafeeds on your site make sure you have replaced "YOURUSERID" in the feeds with your id number.
    And click on some of your links and see if they are tracking on the network.

    Maybe you should try selling products instead of affiliates.

    If you don't have time to look into the results of specific merchant offers you work with (especially underperforming ones) you might not have time to work the business right. I'd take some of the advice above and check the stats on the merchants you're working with to make sure they are promoting for others. If they aren't find some merchants with decent EPC numbers and offers and low Reversal Rate and give them a shot. Less can be more - focus on promoting some good offers aggressively and see what happens, then work on expanding your offer base selectively.

    I see a lot of affiliates trying to be everything to everyone and that rarely works when you're trying to get started.

    SAS does track reliably though - we drive a lot of sales revenue and commissions through them and when we left CJ, we saw affiliates we migrated from CJ to SAS see conversion rate increases that were substantial.
