    Question To Brian: characters limitation of descriptions
    Brian,

    Many affiliates are asking me why descriptions of our products are trunctuated. I have to tell every affiliate that this is because of SaS' limit of description by so many characters... Is this going to be fixed some time?!

    Geno,

    Which field are you referring to? The "Description" field is not limited. The custom fields are...

    Brian,

    In the merchant control console at http://www.shareasale.com/m-products.cfm under the "Description" field it says: Limited to 255 characters. So is it or is it not? I had my coders trunctuate the description (through a script) by this limit to stick to this limitation. Ended up having most of my descriptions 'cut off in the middle'. Needless to say that most affiliates don't appreciate this.

    Kindly clarify.

    Thanks,

    Geno

    Geno,

    The description is not limited if you send us your datafeed for mass upload. On the individual one-by-one upload it is limited and I will check into why - it is likely a typo on that page... But when you send us your mass upload you don't have to limit that field.
    Thanks,

    I hear you now, Brian. Thank you! We'll send you a new datafeed (with full descriptions) within the next couple days.

    Thanks again for clarifying.
