    Merchants Temporarily Offline?
    Since joining SAS, signed up with 9 merchants. As of today, 5 of those 9 are now "Temporarily Offline". Another shows "low funds" (which is usually means they will be offline shortly).

    Does this happen often on SAS? How can a publisher market merchants when their links go down? That means the publisher has to keep changing things around everyday it seems.

    At first it was just a couple of merchants. But when over HALF of the merchants signed up for are now "down" what good is SAS for a publisher?

    Lots of threads on this. You can choose to work only with merchants that are on Auto Replenish so you don't run into this problem. If it's a merchant that you really want that's Temp Offline, email them and tell them to get on Auto Replenish or you'll pull their links or have already pulled their links because they went offline. You can find some Auto Replenish Merchants in the thread below or in the Merchant info at SAS.

    Thanks for the info, TrustNo1.

    Apparently there is not that many auto-replenish merchants which is very sad. This will hurt SAS in the long run.

    This could be a great way to approach a vendor politely, to suggest that maybe they weren't informed about this.

    Problem is that it's an extended weekend, and the end of the month. So notifying them now is pretty useless.

    One thing. Not all AM's know about this forum so when you send them a note about the auto-replenish mention the forum at the same time
