    Hi all,

    Maybe I'm confused but I recieve an email from Art.com with a suggestion to promote new special or what ever. I grabed the link and then thought ahhhh let me get it off of LS instead.

    Sure enough the affiliate ID from LS is different that the one provided in the email.

    maybe I'm confused but I've seen other times where this situation has occured (and not just Art.com).

    If anyone is using the link from the email you might want to double check your affiliate ID in it.

    I rarely use links from an email due to this issue, so just be aware of it.

    Yeah it happens a lot, unfortunately.

    Is there any chance you have more than one LS account and the ID was for another one? That happens too...


    --- I just checked mine, they definitely sent the wrong ID.

    Check all of them and it's not the same on email!

    I take care of the promotion campaign and I don't mind getting the links directly to the Network, so I remember couple of letters on our AFF ID, that is why when I looked at the id it didn't look the same.

    you know your mind is like a memory of PC you got it stored lol...

    I hope it's not a big deal that we have to watch out another crappy stuff on this business. I am hoping it's just an error in my email.
    which I don't use them thank god.

    Nova,
    No, I've seen it happen many times. About half the time the merchant will send out an "Oops we scewed up" email....

    The last art.com email was definitely messed... I got a few copies and they all had the same incorrect id.

    My email had the wrong id, too. And I've also had it happen on others in the past. Because of it happening before, I rarely use the links supplied to me from emails anymore. I go directly back to Linkshare to insure I have the right links.

    So now I am more confused.

    they send them to us to promote the special but we are not using the aff id? how do we get the commish if we use the html links they send?
    and it's not just Art.com, but other merchants too!

    I am paranoid about stuff and always have to check things up. (have to make sure nothing is corrupting my commish you know! lol...)

    Hubby is saying I am too paranoid and always worried I am gonna get screwed! (you don't want to know what I told him! lol...)
