    What are you selling?

    I have the same "no sales in many moons" problem, but that's because most of my links for them sell winter stuff (winter is over) and kid's bedding (kid's bedding banners now lead directly to the home page).

    Hi

    I am selling bedding, but it should not matter if it goes to the homepage, as people still find the items??!!! from my experience anyway!

    there is no way that i have had no sales for 12 days!!!! something is up!

    I've not had any sales with them for at least that long also and I too was having sales daily. They did change their method of reporting - now they are only reporting when an order ships - but I would have thought that stuff would have shipped by now.

    In the last month or two their sales dropped dramtically for me as well with no changes in clicks or ad text. I suspect with batch reporting in place it wont get any better!

    I agree ... Something really stinks at Domestications.

    Whatever it is, I started noticing the downward trend around May . Before that, sales were great .

    As far as the new reporting goes "after the items ship", that's fine - BUT , this is ridiculous , no sales have been reported for me for about 2 weeks now . Also, payments have been slower in coming over the past few months.

    I'm just about ready to dump them , but I'm going to hold off on my decission until after I see the entire month of June's final sales reports . If my gut instinct tells me it's pure BS , they are gone.

    Its now 13 days without a sale!!!

    I will be posting my stats everyday till i get my sales!!!!

    I know that there have been sales, i already had 79 sales from 1,591 clicks between 1st june and 16th June.

    From the 17th June till 29th June, I got 1,793 clicks and no sales.

    does that seem odd?? I have had over 100% more clicks!!!

    I hope they start reporting the lost sales soon

    Yup they are in the edge of being pulled in our site for lack of sales!

    They use to convert very well and it seems like the more unique traffic we get the slower the Linkshare merchant/s convert, even the merchant/s the converts pretty good for us gone to zero sales for a long time now.

    Something is totally wrong!

    Hi All,

    The last sale I am showing from Domestications was Friday 13-JUN-2003. I don't get a ton of sales from them but nothing since then.

    Last month was 1390 clickthroughs - 10 orders - 25 items - total sales $507

    This month is 1396 clickthroughs - 2 orders - 2 items - total sales $34.00

    Probably not enough stats to go by for me to say it doesn't look right, but it doesn't look right to me either. JMO of course!

    I'm taking a WILD guess here but I heard a rumour that a company selling bedding on LS had changed it's reporting system from Transaction date to Shipping Date, this could in effect mean no stats showing up until things start shipping AND that they show up in the reports for previos months, just like Mondera... I know if we suddenly changed from Trans date to ship date we'd have a 3-4 week blank period for all our high end stuff.

    Amyway just my thoughts, you might want to ask LinkShare if the above is the case or not.

    Cheers

    Chris

    I have had an email back from domestications

    We are accurately recording all transactions through LinkShare but are having difficulty with the reporting since the change from point of sale to point of shipment. Our tech team is working feverishly to correct this. I really appreciate your patience and partnership. It should be fixed very soon...

    So i shall wait and see what happens, it will hopefully be fixed soon!

    As long as they are "working feverishly" to get those reports updated , I'm okay with it

    Hi All -

    My team member who works with Domestications asked me to post the following message on their behalf:

    On June 16th, Domestications adjusted the point at which they send transaction activity to LinkShare. Domestications previously sent LinkShare transaction activity when an order was submitted, and they will now send transaction activity once an order has been shipped. This change was made to reduce the number of adjustments and cancellations that potentially reduced commission payments in subsequent months.

    Domestications has experienced a delay in reporting transaction activity to LinkShare since this change was made. Please note that all transactions since June 16 have been tracked. Your activity will be sent to LinkShare and reflected in your online reports once Domestications transmits this data.

    We apologize for any inconvenience, and we will update you as soon as this issue has been resolved. Both LinkShare and Domestications value your partnership and thank you for your patience.

    Best,

    The Domestications Team
