    According to Linkshare Target hasn't paid for November commissions yet. I've already recieved and cashed all my November checks. This plus the fact that I sent over 800 clicks last month with no sales just makes me wonder if Target is running a solid program. Something is definitely fishy here.

    Scott,

    I can assure you that the payments for November were submitted several weeks ago. I can't really speak to the low conversion numbers. I would be more than willing work with you to try to increase them though.

    Joseph, have you followed up with Linkshare regarding November payments? Your affiliates rely on being paid in accordance with the terms of the program.

    My November payment is still awaiting Merchant payment. This payment is well over a month late and I'm starting to get upset. I sent an email to Linkshare about this with no response.

    Scott,

    I have submitted both Nov. and Dec. payments. Please contact me directly and we'll try to figure out what is happening with your check.

    Thanks.

    My account still shows awaiting payment for Nov. I posted a new thread on this in hopes of this topic not getting lost. Guess I will contact you (Target.com AM) for assistance.

    In my merchant payment history, I still show that linkshare is "awaiting payment" for both November and December for Target.

    I'd like to contact you directly, but you didn't give me any information. Can you offer me an email address or phone number so I can contact you?

    Thank you,

    Joseph - Please reply
    Hi Joseph:

    I also show my November & December commissions from Target as 'Awaiting Payment'.

    It seems that many others show the same thing. It doesn't seem to be an isolated case, it seems like it's widespread.

    Can you tell us here on this board (for the benefit of others who may be having the same problem) what the problem is, and what you are doing with Linkshare to make sure the payments get sent out?

    Thank you

    (If you are reading this and you are a Target affiliate whose November and December payments still show as 'Awaiting Payment', then please post that here as well so we can see who else is having these problems.)

    Ditto here... Still waiting for both November and December Payments. Joseph, are you sure the checks that were sent were for November and December 2004? Linkshare is showing your last payment as being the October 2004 payment, which was made on 12/7/04.

    Thanks for looking into this.

    I'm STILL waiting...again.

    I'm sure that it is system wide for Target and not just us here posting at ABW. My check is pidly but it will pay my heating bill this month!! and that right now is something worth squawking about!!! Who do we vent at Target or Linkshare??

    Still Waiting For Target To Respond
    Hi Joseph:

    I sugggest that to handle this efficiently, you and Sarah from Linkshare (sarah AT linkshare.com or abw AT linkshare.com) have an exchange and find out what is going on with November and December Target payments showing as 'Awaiting Payment' for a bunch (all?) of your affiliates.

    Then when you have figured it out, please post here about what the problem was, and let us know when and how it is going to be solved. This would be much more efficient than having every affiliate that has a problem emailing you and Sarah separately. It's time for efficiency now.

    Please take action on this Joseph.

    Thanks

    I have confirmed with Linkshare that they have received payment, and that checks should go out no later than the 15th of February.

    There was a similiar thread about this a few months ago with Buy.com. Ironically similiar. So maybe the problem really is on Linkshares end and not Target's.

    Joseph:

    Is that February 15th date for BOTH November & December payments?

    Also, could you please explain what went wrong, and why the payments are so late?

    Thanks
