    Is anyone close to the Sharper Image Affiliate Manager?

    If so, have they given any Reason as to why they haven't paid either October or November's commissions?

    I have emailed their "affiliate contact addy"
    but have received no reply.

    Normally Sharper Image pays on time, with just one or two late payments.

    Thanks

    I think they did the same thing last year. I'm guessing that they're holding back for tax reasons or something. I'd like to see their salaries held back for the same amount of time and see if they'd continue to pay us whenever they feel like it.

    CNN News says Sharper Image posts lower earnings - that's where your checks are.I wouldn't be surprised if affiliate checks where last on the list because we have no power as a group - they only way to stop this kind of activity is for any and all affiliates who promote a particular merchant to form a cooperative such that 'no checks, no promotion'

    Hi All -

    According to my team, we received Sharper Image's October payment on 12/30/04. Affiliate payments will be distributed within 10 business days.

    10 business days? What, are you worried that Sharper Image will bounce a check? If they've sent a wire, why don't checks get cut the same day or the next day? Two weeks is ridiculous.

    Hmmm Oct's payment received 12/30/04 ... Let's see, that means they're only HOW late in paying?

    Aren't the payment terms Net 30? And, Linkshare Let's them be this late -- Not just Sharper Image, but a Huge majority of L/S merchants.

    Showing once again that Payments are NOT a priority for Linkshare... It's amazing the disconnect between Linkshare and their affiliates.
