    I don't know if this has been asked before --
    What does {*} mean when placed in front of
    a Merchant in our Linkshare account?

    Has the Merchant dropped me?

    When I check my Account Status they show
    current--no change, But they do not
    show up in "create links"

    Thanks,
    Anne

    It means that they are no longer with Linkshare. They are no longer tracking.

    The * stands for "bellyup" and you still can run reports against the dead merchant for collection purposes. I think I have about 120 of them at the bottom of my "get links" selection list.

    Thanks guys. Bad news for me -- several
    {*} merchants owe me. Guess I won't hold my
    breath though.

    Hi gettnthar,

    The {*} before a merchant's name indicates that the program has been discontinued and is no longer a part of the LinkShare Network(R). Programs may be terminated for many reasons, including business and/or technical issues.

    Thanks,
    Sarah
