    Exclamation Tip : How to avoid getting a check to the wrong name
    Hi All

    If you have managed to validate but got the wrong name listed for the payment name then I highly recommend changing the MANUAL Threshold setting to something high so that you can avoid getting paid until this is all resolved.

    Not a solution, but certainly a work around that'll prevent getting checks you can't cash and having to muddle around getting them changed.

    Cheers

    I hope linkshare is paying you to come here and give us suggestions. It's pathetic that a merchant (affiliate manager team) is doing the job that a linkshare representative should be doing. "if there are any" ????????

    I think it's in everyones best interest that we all try to think of ways we can help each other get through this stage of the change over. I think there are plenty of people finding the errors so we don't need to add much on that area, so a few posts that share ideas can hopefully help get us all around/over/under the problems until they are fully resolved

    Cheers

    Tip #2 : How to avoid getting a check to the wrong name.
    Tip #2 : How to avoid getting a check to the wrong name.

    If you're a single woman about to get married and you're a Linkshare affiliate, think before you say "I Do"

    Unless you keep your maiden name, YOU WILL NOT GET PAID by Linkshare.

    If you go to live on a new address with your new husband, YOU WILL NOT GET PAID by Linkshare.

    If you're gay and have a sex change, YOU WILL NOT GET PAID by Linkshare.

    If you're reading this, it's because you're having problems getting pay by Linkshare, so YOU WILL NOT GET PAID by Linkshare.

    So, unless you're willing to do a lot of this: because you like it like this YOU WILL NOT GET PAID by Linkshare, any time soon.


    Tip #3 : Don't get married, don't move and don't be gay, so you may then, GET PAID by Linkshare one of this days.

    BWT, who am I today?

    What about an individual who has been working as a Sole Proprietor who has now formed a corporation?

    Even though I have all my paperwork from the IRS and my bank account set up, the new company did not get verified. I am verified under my own name, and it needs to be changed.

    I'd still increase the threshold until it is resolved so you don't need to worry about the checks coming with the wrong name on them.

    Cheers

    Talking
    Or a proper setup on your Laser Printer and Wordprocessor.

    You'll also need some very weak double-sided-tape. Georgia is a good font, but there may be better ones.

    Maybe this is in the wrong thread? Sorry...

    Set the threshold higher to avoid getting paid?????

    Are you nuts? I've been trying to get paid for over four frickin weeks!!

    Fortunately, if my verification screens are correct, I'll be getting a check to my bussiness name.

    Chris, I'm not giving you a bad time...you are one of just a few voices that are brave enough to come here during this fiasco to help affiliates. Now, let me know when you change networks and I'll do more with my NetMagazines sites. :-)

    You might want to double-check with your accountant, but I think that since you are the owner of your company you should be able to deposit checks written to you personally, into your company's bank account.

    Oh, wait, I forgot, I'm dropping my LS merchants. Sadly, NetMagazines is one of those.

    Like I said, let me know when you move to another network.

    Hi Ron

    Good question , why indeed.

    It is the case that many overseas affiliates got validated with the incorrect payment name listed. So they are getting checks that they can't cash...until the payment name info can be edited it makes no sense to get paid with a check they can't cash

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

    To set a threshold

    To do so:
    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

    Chris
