    I have not seen any sale from Overstock for almost a week. I generally get several every day. Are they sending updates at all?

    I shouldn't have told Mike that I am getting 1 in 25 conversion for them.

    funny enough I thought I had deleted all my overtock links months ago due to them having so many parasites, today I look at my Linkshare stats and find I've had a sale for them and I'm credited with $13.02 comish, not only is the sale a shock but so is the comish...I never had a sale this big for them when I promoted them.

    But the bad point is I will need to put up one or two links now so I can get to the minimum and get paid

    What Connie said, like clockwork here, so it may just be you don't know.

    Same here KC! My last sale was on October 24th and I usually have at least 4-5 sales each day. I've had over 500 clickthroughs since then and not one single sale reported - pretty weird! Overstock has been my best merchant but if this continues I am going to stop promoting them as it is working out way too expensive.

    I too have missing sales from Overstock. I know I personally made the sale from my LinkShare link and they are nowhere to be found. I am starting to believe someone else is getting credited for my sales.

    Wonder if it's Overstock or Linkshare who are not reporting on sales? I've had a lot of problems with Linkshare lately, so nothing would surprize me as far as they are concerned!! Perhaps it's time to make a phone call to Overstock and find out what's going on. Surely they would be able to check their records to see if we have made any sales lately? Any thoughts on this?

    Obviously the easiest job at Overstock is the one held by the affiliate manager. All strickly geared to overseeing the automated datafeeds to private portals, network autoloads of a few coupons and specials for the BHO's and some SEO/SEM work. Just another biggie running on autopilot and hopefully will screw up on dealing with the Ad Whores and drive their stock down under $10/share for another Webmaster Mike buy-in when those miss-spent millions impact the bottom line. They did well here when we were able to keep their feet to the fire after bailing out of BF.

    You might be better off not getting sales right now. When they do another sales incentive, then I will put them back and show a 100000% increase and land a nice bonus. What is the point in selling for such small commissions?

    If the commission rate is so low, why are you participating in it? I am and have no complaints so far. I not only pick merchants for their commission rate, but also for product recognition. Sometimes you have to take two steps backward to go four steps forward (or something like that )

    Does anyone else have a merchant like that, I'd like to know.

    backspace thanks you.

    As far the low rate goes:

    I do not promote any media products (3%) from Overstock because I get more even at Amazon. I only promote products which are 7%. For some products (like electronics), I never found any merchant (except speciality retailers like SharperImage) who has a inventory like OS and offer 7%.

    My no sale saga continues. I am going to give them a call or send an email today.

    (Shawn, if you are reading this, please check whether reporting is okay at linkshare)

    Give Adam a call at their affiliate 800# (if you do not get adam, ask for him, he is the best over there) and he will look things over for you.

    Don't hold your breath for Shawn, I have not seen him here in weeks.

    As for me, I am seeing plenty of sales, but the conversion is down.

    Adam replied back in minutes. There are sales not yet shipped. So they are not there in Linkshare yet.

    They did real well for me over the last Holiday shopping season. I'll just bite the bullet and and in some O/S Christmas gifting ideas in some categories.
