    Just noticed that the linkshare reports have not posted for this evening.

    Do you think that we'll see any reports at all before Monday, even Tuesday?

    This is my first year in affiliate marketing. It seems that many of my LS merchants don't report on weekends and sometimes Monday. I can only guess what happens on these long long weekends.

    Can the veterans here tell me what's "normal?"

    This isn't "normal". LS usually updates at least once per day. I haven't had any updated reports since early yesterday.

    Yes and the last couple of days only partial reporting has made it in too...Several merchants did not report. Shoot I have one that has not reported all week yet....

    Shouldn't reporting be automated somewhat on a holiday even....?

    Sure hope they get the reports before the end of the month because Linkshare only pays on posting date, not transaction dates.

    Survey Man,

    Wow, that detail didn't come to my mind! We have the end of December Holidays too. Sarah is away, so I'm just going to make links and try to cool it.

    I can confirm that Mondera Transaction report was not picked up, so things are deplayed, not checked other merchants yet, NetMagazines seems to have picked up one Transaction report, Kegworks I still need to check

    Cheers

    Several have not come through in recent days. Cold Water Creek has been AWOL since the 21st. Others as well. But at least 90% of the merchants have been going through.

    Thank you Chris for the update. This is very frustrating.

    If LS only reports when things are shipped, not purchased, there probably aren't too many things shipping until Monday.

    LS report when ever a transaction file is picked up, regardless of the actual date, ship date vs transaction date is a merchant based decision.

    Cheers

    I'm not seeing any sales reported for any of my merchants for the 26th or 27th and there's no impressions or click-thrus for the 27th.

    Ya it has been two full days with no reporting and a day or two before that we saw only one or two merchants report any sales...

    Linkshare, this is NOT the time to be behind in reporting! For one thing, how do you expect affiliates to engage the 4th quarter bonus offers when they don't even know how much they are selling? For the second thing if these reports are not uploaded BEFORE Sunday they will go into December revenue checks because of the way Linkshare records revenue on the date it was posted and NOT the date of the actual transaction....

    These delays will cost affiliates money and at the very list the time it takes to get our payments by 30 days.

    The word from Linshare is that there is a delay with no ETA on the update.

    Yes well that delay has been several days now, dating prior to the holiday by two days or most of this week...many merchants have no updates at all including Dell and Overstock hasn't had one for a few days now.

    Well that is good news, I sure hope so! I would like to believe that Linkshare understands the value of good reporting and particuarly so during holiday times...which are MORE important to be updated if anything.

    Still no update. I think they all went on vacation with our money. When calling I get an answering machine.

    Still no update.

    I've been in queue for Live Help at Linkshare for about half an hour now. I've moved up from #3 to #2. Are they really there?

    Looking forward to what Live Help has to say. I'm not expecting much though. I just keep making new pages.

    Good Luck on the Live help. I sat at "next in the queue" for at least an hour. There is noone there and they left the chat on.
