    I heard from someone in another forums that it will be soon in the new year. Do you guys have any idea when they will consolidate checks? I think it should be about time if they want to be the #2 affiliate network.

    I had an affiliate rep tell me on the phone they were talking about it, but it would not be implemented right away.

    That would be awesome. If they consolidated checks they would move up to number 1 going by my stats. Oh Sheet, the switch is gonna be shut off again. My big mouth. Ummm, I mean yes they would be #2. <IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/ubb/icons/icon38.gif>

    Well if the news is true,
    it absolutely great news but I don't think they will ever take such a step!

    if they will, it'll make them the best performing affiliate network because like we know the best performing merchants and affiliates in history come from linkshare, only if the common affiliate can make money with linkshare, it becomes the king!

    I also heard they were going to get stricter with their terms regarding Merchant payments and I'm still waiting to get paid from sales a year ago.

    They will have to PROVE these things to me before I will ever sign up a new Snare Merchant.

    They are great at talking a sending out rumors. I want to see RESULTS.

    Haiko;
    Loved the full moon to Stephen and this obviously is a just a rumor. Only 2 of my 121 merchants there have bothered to sent me LS commission checks since September. I'm over minimum with 19 of them but LS is still waiting on merchant payment. Same old story and the only cure is monthly consolidated payments. Steve promised to get those on priority 7 months ago at the Cashpile discussions. I think BeFree and Linkshare should merge and then sell out to CJ.

    Mike,

    I believe He said in the Cashpile discussions that they were going to announce it in Quarter 4. Yeah right ... 2003 [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    That's why I say ... They are masters of rethoric and smoke and mirrors.

    The only way to go is with an escrow account ... when will Befree, Performics, Linkshare and the rest get it?

    That is excellent news, I hope it's going to happen.

    I only use a few of their advertisers , and I do get checks regularly from those that I have carefully joined, but if they do make this switch, IMO, they will blow away the other networks , and I for one, will be pushing Linkshare merchants heavily.

    I was leary about joining any more of their programs , because I knew , at best I would most likely only get occassional transactions from time to time, and if there's one thing I can't stand, it's knowing that this advertiser owes me $3.00, that one owes me $15, etc.,etc. Grrrrr...

    Linkshare has been improving,in tracking, and in affiliate support, I've been saying it all along .

    I second that motion.

    Tis the only way any of their merchants are going to even get a glimpse my traffic!

    I have some really good programs that are totally private. It may be hard to believe but they both pay on time every month. One even tracks and pays me for mail-orders!

    Linksnare neither commands nor deserves any of my respect. They never gave a damn about affiliates or even merchants for that matter.

    I'm sorry to be so blunt here but this is my whole hearted and honest opinion.

    There may be some diamonds in the rough but they are few and far between at Snare!

    Aggregate payment??? Hahaha, That's silly. That does not imply that Snare is going to *cover for the deadbeats* and you will get paid on time. If the merchants are late you get aggregated zeros.

    Ye reap what ye sow! Those in the know, whom have pockets that grow, near Linksnare don't go!

    We all know that it takes over a year to build up at least a backlog of 1000.00 in earned commissions to start seeingg LS or BeFree checks. I have 134 LS merchants showing they owe me something but only 7 at minimums ( 5 of the 7 haven't paid LS since October). No stellar performer in the group. BeFree has the same bizplan, which is to protect their merchants ability to pay their network fees by not forcing an escrow for affiliate commissions and NOT billing the merchant til 30 days after a lucky affiliate reaches the minimum.

    Basically no affiliate really exists til after they reach the minimum. If a merchant sets the minimum above 75.00 ..then no one is supposed to get a check. That also is the time they investigate and make sure their was no affiliate fraud on CPC or subscriptions, chargebacks on sales and make adjustments or cancellation notices ( this gives them another 60 days). Affiliates are not supposed to be able to navagate through the diversion tactics-reporting errors -broken links - low commission rates and zero day cookies to get to where they have the audacity to demand a check. Two -four demands backed by the stat reports and walla you get a check or they decide to drop out of the program after 90 more days of free traffic. Those that get three checks in a row are considered super affiliates and get put on the merchants preferred spamm list. All real super affiliates are mega traffic portals ( hybred deals) or incent affiliates posing as merchants.
