    Exclamation Validation Error Info
    Hi All

    I had a conf call with a number of LinkShare staff last night to go over some issues, specifically in regard to the state of people who have some how managed to get validated with the wrong payment name, which has occured due to an as yet unresolved bug that seems to mainly effect people overseas (outside the US).

    The situation at present is such that once you are validated, you can not, at present be "manually unvalidated"... obviously this can lead to a few worries regarding payments going to the wrong name, this seems to mainly have effected.

    I asked if there was a way to become "unvalidated", and altough some people are experiencing this happening on the fly it is not a function that is available for "manually unvalidated" people.

    There are three payments going out this month, one per week as people validate. The first payment went out last week.

    IF you have managed to validate and have the wrong payment name then please do the following

    1. Go Here : http://www.amwso.com/request.php
    2. Select LinkShare Validation
    3. Send me the following info
    a - Your Full Name
    b - Your LinkShare User Name
    c - The Name you have presently listed for "Payee"
    d - The Name you ought to have
    e - Location (State / Country)
    f - Nationality

    I will collect this info and ensure it goes to the right person at LinkShare so that it can be updated as soon as possible.

    If you have received a check with the wrong name on it, do the same and also add to the info "Received Check"

    Cheers

    Chris

    "The situation at present is such that once you are validated, you can not, at present be "unvalidated"... "

    I did ask the very same question... I imagine the situation as it was envisioned was that once a person is Validated there would never be a reason to unvalidate them, but as we have all found this is not quite the case.

    Cheers

    Just to clarify, this thread is aimed at those people who are validated , but got validated with the incorrect data entered in to the "Pay to" name and can't change it.

    I apologize to everyone who's posts I just deleted (TJ, Marcelle, Elephant) , I would like to keep the thread on the single focus

    Cheers

    Payment name change should be available in 2-3 weeks.

    Til then to set a threshold to prevent checks coming with the wrong name

    1) Log onto your LinkShare account
    2) Click Update Profile
    In the Channel Manager box at the left side of the screen
    3) Click on a channel (icon with blue bar at top of gray box)
    4) In the Payment box input a dollar amount for threshold.
    5) Click Update

    Do this for EACH Channel.

    Cheers

    This is apparently now fixed, I am waiting on an update from LS with any extra notes that may be relevant.

    Cheers

    Thanks for the update Chris.

    It allows you to change Company Name but I don't see a way to edit the Payable To field. If I edit the Company Name field do you know whether this will change the Payable To field as well?

    I just want to check before I make changes to my information because to be honest I am very cautious about the current system i.e. will it work.

    Thanks.

    Yeah... pretty odd, I tried to update the Legal Entity with the correct info and I rec'd the standard "We can't validate you" message, I tried some other options, went back to the revised info that I entered first, tried again and was successful - go figure!

    Never heard of that one before. You might want to contact Linkshare. The best contact I've found is "abw at linkshare.com".

    I got that too. It eventually went away, but I still can't initiate the random deposits. The "initiate" button keeps coming back. I guess I'll stick with the fun of getting unexpected paper checks in the mail for now.

    Again, Chris, thanks for being the voice of information for LinkShare when they have failed to be that voice themselves.
