    1-800-PETMEDS - Premium Partner??
    1-800-PETMEDS is listed as a Linkshare Premium Partner.

    However, in Linkshare's Premium Partner Program criteria, it states, "Prompt authorization of affiliate payments so affiliates are paid at the end of the following month."

    If that was the case, for example, for March commissions, I should be paid at the end of April to coincide with Linkshare's second payment for the month. As a matter of fact, at the earliest, I will get my March commissions at the end of May.

    Perhaps Linkshare should remove 1-800-PETMEDS from being a Premium Partner. I have never been paid at the end of the following month for the past year I have been promoting them.

    Under that criteria (affiliates paid by the end of the following month), you could count the "Premium Partners" on one hand. I think what they probably mean (and I realize it's not at all what they said) is that the Premium Partners usually pay LinkShare by the end of the following month, which means affiliates should usually be paid in the first batch (around the 8th) of the next month. Even by that standard, it sounds like they miss the mark though.

    Now that SynergyAnalytics is up and I'm able to look at the Merchant Payment History report, it looks like they do meet LinkShare standard for Premium Partner status.

    Payments for November, December, January, and February commissions were all paid to Linkshare by the end of the following month. March commissions appear to be late, but LinkShare says "usually" so I would think 4 out of the last 5 months would qualify.
