    Found: 279,854 Clicks and $124.00 in lost Commissions
    Ok so I finally upgraded my linkshare account (wanted to check on a merchant) and then I loged in - said I wasn't validated, but was still able to run regular reports and to my amazement I see:




    ... and there is no way in the world that this is correct as I haven't even shown a banner for this merchant since early January.

    So the question is ... who lost these stats and earnings?
    Continued Success,

    A 0.06% conversion ratio? Is Haiko a cookie stuffer?

    Those figures just look plain screwy to me.
    "159 items" sold... yet only a puny "$122.70" in commissions from all those sales?! And piles of clicks off of only 5 imps. And I just noticed, the $122.70 is supposed to be off of "$1.37" in sales. Quite a generous commission rate that is--over 1000% (or is that 10,000%?) commission!

    It looks like their LS's script has resorted to just making up figures, to me...

    Hey...maybe that solves the mystery--it's switched with Ecom's account!

    Could it be some big reversals came in later? Just guessing as I still don't understand LS reporting.
