    Question Why Are the biggest companies leaving linkshare?
    Linkshare is and always has been my favorite network. Why are all the big companies leaving linkshare and going to cj and performics (I really dislike and refuse to use Performics).

    If merchants like Overstock use thier own in house network, I don t see many affiliates using thier system. Would you like to loggin to 500 different sites to see your commsssion?

    Wish You Luck
    Thank You,
    Jason Bishop

    Read the last couple of months of threads (at least) in this forum and you'll see exactly why people are jumping the Linkshare ship, both affiliates and merchants.

    Dumping Linkshare as an affiliate was an easy choice. I'm sure it's harder for a merchant but if I was a merchant with Linkshare I'd be packing my bags.

    **grumble grumble**

    no point taking out the frustration on the new guy, even if he can't take a few minutes to read any of the MULTITUDE of posts that answer his question.

    **mumble ***** gripe complain linkshare growl**

    Hi,,

    I may be a new guy to this forum, But Not to affiliate marketing. I have been making a living for the last 3 years in Affiliate Marketing and currently reside in the top 5 % of CJ and Linkshare.

    The only thing I have read is that you lame affiliate are grimping about the system change over and the 4 week old payments.

    Is this what your talking about?

    Less time stroking your own ego, more time reading.
    Might throw in a few minutes with a spell check as well.
    Ah nevermind. Trusty's pretty much nailed it.

    Well that answers one question I've had.

    It seems that the guy on the Titanic, you know, that radio guy who didn't pass on the "Iceberg" warnings, despite other ships frantically radioing the message again and again...has been reincarnated.

    Actually (Speaking as my lame-old self), the payment issue is only one item of about eight major items that many of us have had to deal with. The four-week thing is really more like six-weeks.

    If payment is owed to you and the payment is VERY late, would you just sit there?

    mmm You Guys still can't find any reason to support your thesis. So far i had heard of three complaint

    1. The new system integration (which i AGree)
    2. The payment Situtaion (Which will be eventuall resolved)
    3. Mmm I forgot this one

    So all of you guys can only come up with 2?

    I have read about three hours of this forum and can;t find any signficant justified inforamtion.

    If I were linkshare I would igonore all your emails as well because all the affiliates (probably the low affiliates) just keep on whinning about the damn transisition. Obviously you guys have never wriiten software (Sh*t Happens)

    As far as the spell check goes, If you learned how to mispell maybe you would be in the top 10% as well.

    Good Luck,
    Jason Bishop

    Yes I posted that,

    I really dislike performics and could write a book on them. However I really like linkshare and everyone is bashing them, I am just trying to find out why?

    Man, I was looking forward to seeing their reps in NYC. Literally.
