    Does Linkshare track OS sales, or does OS track them and report them to LS after the fact?

    Very good question Deelz. I assume OverStock and Walmart batch their sales reports from their own transaction logs.

    If they won't adopt and feed a bird ..flip them one! BBQ some Gator and remember to flush WhenU..

    Shawn, or someone else from Overstock, recently commented that sales are reported to Linkshare when the order is shipped. You should be able to find this on the Overstock forum.

    I couldn't even be bothered to ask the question. When the conversion rate went from 1:65 down to 1:1100, their links keep disappearing from my site. I still promote OS, but just barely, until I hear something more positive.

    The "trusted third party" concept is nice.

    But if the "trusted third party" is not the one who is tracking the sales?

    Hi Deelz,

    Transactions are tracked by LinkShare technology that works with each merchant's e-commerce system. A merchant then sends automated confirmation of any transactions through LinkShare's proprietary routing technology for us to report your commission earnings. Many merchants, such as Overstock.com, provide transaction confirmation once the product is actually shipped. LinkShare reports are updated every evening based on the confirmations received.

    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR> LinkShare reports are updated every evening based on the confirmations received. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    Can you please clarify? My (perhaps ignorant) interpretation of what you are saying here is that it is "out of your hands".

    Are transaction reports and confirmation reports eventually compared to see if there are any discrepancies?

    Hell wasn't big enough so I came back.
