    I got the same error message. I sent them an email two days ago and I am still waiting for them to reply.

    I got the same error message, had to remove the name of my website and put my full name in it's place and it worked... Give it a try.

    When I sign in it says it is unable to verify some of my information - but doesn't tell me what. And it also has my birthdate wrong and I have changed it about 4 times, but it's wrong again this morning. I give up! I sent them an email to their support but haven't heard from them yet.

    I've alway had an individual account. I tried it with and without a Middle name and middle initial. The address is the same Linkshare mailed to for 7 years. I updated the W-9 part with all combinations...Still the friggin thing cannot verify me!

    Wow - pretty bad when it cannot verify ecomcity!
    Mike and Charley have been around forever it seems. Now I do not feel so bad that it cannot verify my business that has been here since 1997. It was driving me nuts.

    I removed my website name and put in my business name as this is who the checks should be made out to. It didn't work. Then I put in my name and tried again. It still didn't work.


    I have tried several different combinations and now get this:
    Error, you have exceeded the number of attempts allowed to try to pass third party verification. You may try again at a later date.

    Who the heck is the third party they are trying to verify me with. People always mispell my name.

    I just figured out who the mysterious 3rd party verifier - that can't seem to verify anyone - is!!!

    Simple... follow the money....

    Who stands to benefit most if Linkshare can't verify any affiliates... and they start dropping Linkshare in droves....

    It's TODD!!!!

    You're all laughing at how stupid that is... but think about it...

    Linkshare is sooooooooooooooooooooo stupid they would hire a verification service (my quess is the lowestt bidder) that is really a subdivion of VaLUEcLICK!!

    That's the only thing that makes sense!

    I am having the same problem. The LS system seems to allow only two or three attempts at validation per day.

    I would suggest to stop trying to change things to get it to say you are verified again. I suspect it is just a LS systems problem, and that people that were verified before may very well still be verified. Of course, LS needs to fix the problem and let us know that for sure.

    You're not alone. I had the same problem. Out of desperation, I visited their 'Live Chat.' That person couldn't resolve it, but they did refer it on to tech support. I tried again a few days later and it worked.

    I know how frustrated I was. Good luck!

    I sure hope that you're right. It would be nice for the error to be resolved automatically.

    I have never been verified. But I guess if the people that have been verified can't get verified agiain, it's certainly hopeless for the rest of us.

    I decided to try something different. Instead of selectiong Sole Proprietorship I selected Individual. When you select Sole Propretorship it asks for Legal Enitity Date of Birth. Is that my birthdate or the birthdate of my business. Tried my bday but it didnt work and I found it strange that it doesn't ask if I select individual. I certainly don't know the exact day my business was born on. I have a DBA somewhere...

    I love it when they call me Big Poppa......

    Do we get a choice on how we are verified?

    I personally would like it to be a woman, in my case of course.

    Not that I am perv......but this is My Verification here.....

    No higher than like.....maybe 5"4....must have a manicure (diddy dont like dirty nails)

    Nice voice.....yeah....nice voice ( When I ran the Call centres, I had this girl working for me.....LOL.....the sweetest, sexiest voice....she sold ice to eskimos...but oy....she was like 7 feet tall, with big ass clunkers for feet, hands like a brick layer and a face like a horse-Just had to say it)

    Back to my verification, yeah baby.......Kay Messer....hook it up
