    Reports updated later and later??
    Is it just me, or are the transaction reports getting updated later and later these days. My sales from yesterday have not been updated yet.

    Bump. Am I the only one who has not had their sales updated or is it possible that I did not have any sales yesterday. Please someone answer. Thanks

    Thanks for letting me know. Something is odd. Nothing has been updated in my reports at all.

    Infoseeker - Am I the only one who has not had their sales updated or is it possible that I did not have any sales yesterday. Please someone answer. Thanks
    You should know by now that LinkShare reports ONLY the sales uploaded by their merchants. So depending of which merchants you're working with, you're not going to get the same result.
    LinkShare update the reports on a regular basis, day and night. Merchants have several choices, manuel updates or Ltrans (automatic transmission of transactions). Some upload once a day, some much more often.
    Your problem is more linked to a specific merchant than LinkShare.

    Zeus, I know all that, but the merchants in question used to do an automatic transmission of transactions EARLY IN THE AM, but I found out that they are doing manual batches a few times a day now, so I was finally updated in the afternoon. I was not worried about the ones that normally do manual batch reporting, it was the merchants that I was used to seeing every AM.

    From the rumors I've heard, I think Linkshare is working on getting merchants to report sales much more frequently, perhaps as frequently as every 15 minutes. Since there hasn't been anything official about it, I suspect it's something that they're planning on announcing next month at the Symposium.

    Like everything Linkshare does, I wouldn't be surprised if the implementation caused more problems than it solved, at least in the short term.

    I've the same information confirmed by merchants. That's may be why the reports seems updated later if your sales were not included in the first Ltrans but the second or third.
