    Making money doing test buys...
    A friend of mine was over and we decided to do a test buy from one of her links. Without going into a tremendous amount of detail, she spent $50.00. We used my credit card to make the purchase so I know for a fact that she spent that amount.

    A hour later she gets a email from the merchant congratulating her on the sale and telling her that her commission check of $100 is on the way.

    Soooo.... what the heck can be happening? I told her I am going to go sign up with that merchant and do a test buy every day! LOL


    Some of my ideas...

    1. Independant merchant might explain the email intead of info being posted to stats. (she talked to them on the phone asking if they allow affiliates to make purchases so they might have been watching for it to come thru?)

    2. First sale for the merchant so possibly a activation bonus?

    3. They goofed, the decimal point is in the wrong place. (most likely explaination)

    the merchant may even send the merchandise to the address on your card.

    I don't know, but I'd sure like to sign up on that deal!

    I haven't found a merchant who offers 200% commission. How can this be? Was it a product or service you bought. Is there recurring billing involved?

    It was a product, no recuring billing. I know it must be a mistake. I'll be totally shocked if the check actually shows up.
