    This is the only FREE advertising LS appears to recruit merchants and affiliates. Give them a break!

    Hi walleye warrior,

    It sounds like you may have applied, been automatically approved for this merchant's program, and then tried to generate links immediately thereafter. We typically recommend that you wait about 30 minutes after being approved to a program to post the new merchant links on your site. Can you please check this merchant's links again, and then let me know if you continue to receive this message.

    Thanks,
    Sarah

    That may have been the case. I tried one more today that seemed to occur and they seemed to work. Auto approval say we can generate immediately. Should the 30 minute warning be mentioned there too instead of only in their initial welcome e mail???

    One other note...
    Joined a program the other day for cards. Cardstar.com I was more annoyed the ONLY link they had was "Cardstar Store" No products, no banners, just the one lonely text link. Have filed it into oblivion obviously. Not quite the type of link we need to help generate sales.

    Hi WW,

    Interesting note about Cardstar.com. They appear to have additional link offerings, but these may not have been made available to you. I'll see what I can do on my end, but you may also want to consider contacting the merchant to request that they provide additional link types.
