    Can we make a test purchase to a merchant without actually buying something to see if links are tracking? Does anyone know a good way to do this on a company you feel may have bad reports?

    It would vary from merchant to merchant, but some merchants have the ability to do this and/or to test very small orders.

    Michael,

    Thanks for this info. Can you tell me where I would start if I were to try to do this? And or can you tell me a merchant name that already has this in place to help protect their affiliates?

    Contact the merchant you're wanting to test.
