    Test Purchase Day
    I think we all affiliates should have a test purchase day, I am curious of how many sales will and will not be tracked?

    No test purchase day - do it randomly
    No, I don't think affiliates should have a "test purchase day," because this kind of activity should be mostly random. Make a purchase whenever you feel like it -- whenever you were going to buy something anyway -- and then see whether it is tracked. I've done this for several merchants (and I've posted results here, some good & some bad).

    Yep, I agree. Test purchases should be made at random, without any notice to the network or the merchant. They should be made on different days, different times of day, etc., so there is no pattern whatsoever.

    If they know when the exact "Test Purchase Day" is going to be, then they will make sure that the tracking plug is not disconected on that day.

    It's much better to do it randomly and get them with their hand in the cookie jar when they least expected.
