August 11th, 2005, 02:20 AM #1Is there a tool for reporting from multiple networks?
I have a situation where I have shoppers buying from merchants who are in different networks (e.g. CJ, Linkshare, ShareaSale, more to come). Now I would like to track a group of shoppers that come through a certain link, so I use affid+subid's to the merchants so that the subid's can tell me later in the reports that the commissions were from that group. Most networks and in-house affiliate software supports the concept of subid's.
The challenge is how to get a consolidated report for subid's from different networks? Is there an API into each network so we can automate this or do I need to go each week and download the transaction reports from each network and somehow merge them and then run the reports by subid?
Surely someone has come across this and even better - maybe there's already some cool tools to handle reporting for multiple networks. Otherwise we will look at developing a web-based reporting system ourselves.

AffTrack.com has a solution called iTrack that does exactly that. I'm not 100% sure that it includes Linkshare, but I think it does. (Their normal consolidated affiliate reporting doesn't include Linkshare.)
You may one to search here for AffTrack. There are some definite opinions out there about them. Myself, I find their service invaluable.

Thanks so much Michael. I requested more info. In the meantime I'll read the forums to get the skinny on them.
Appreciate the quick reply.
