    Is Linkshare running behind on cutting checks this month?

    They have had payment owed to me since the 7th from one merchant and still have not sent it out.

    Usually it only takes a couple days from the time it shows the merchant has paid until they send it out to me.

    It's Snare, what do you expect?

    I only use them under severest duress, that way I'm only out a McDonald's burger if the payment takes forever.

    Real bills are paid by the network that pays on the 20th of the month.

    I'm waiting for LS to cut checks from merchants that paid on the 2nd, and 5th. They finally, on the 14th, cut some checks from funds paid in on the 30th. Very slow this month.

    I would imagine the volume of cheques is maybe double what it usually is, I know Mondera approved payments a week later than we usually do, a lot to check with so many new people making sales and many bonuses to pay out.

    Cheers

    I kind of suspected that it is because of December.

    I make the most money with Linkshare programs and have yet to have a problem getting paid. That is why I was surprised they have held onto the payment for so long this time.

    This is definitely one area where Linkshare needs to improve. December just makes it worse, but they're pretty slow to start with.

    I'm seeing delays just about everywhere this month, with one exception. I have one independent program that almost always has checks in the mail on the first business day of the month. They did this month, too. Pretty impressive.

    I show a couple BeFree merchants whose checks have been mailed already. None of my checks have been cut for Linkshare merchants yet, although 5 of them show that Linkshare has received their payments.

    There's no reason their check-cutting process couldn't be more streamlined. I hope they make it a priority soon.

    Well, when I checked yesterday (Jan 19), one of my merchants was still listed as "LinkShare Awaiting Merchant Payment" for November's check. When I came home this afternoon, it said that Linkshare mailed the check on 1/20. I received the check in the mail today (1/20).

    The check itself was dated 1/13 and the envelope was postmarked 1/16. Sounds like it's been so busy, they haven't been able to update the payment report as quickly as they might....but I'd rather get the check than wait for the report to get updated.

    Thanks LS.

    wyvern - Yes, I had several merchant checks in the same scenario as you mention...My guess is that accounting is way behind in posting whether or not checks have been both received from the merchant and mailed out to affiliates. Overstock, for example, showed up about 2 PM as being received on the 16th which was last Friday...

    Now I hope they catch up and keep up on this as it may avoid a lot of wondering and unnecessary communications regarding payment status.

    My later than usual payment arrived today.

    My account info said it was mailed today.

    Dang! The USPS has gotten faster than the speed of light! LOL
