    New to Linkshare - What is going on?
    Hi guys. I'm curious, my clicks and impressions, as well as transactions seem to be tracking ok.

    But anything regarding payment (from merchant to linkshare, from them to me) is not being updated, or is a cuople of months late.

    Could this be related to the whole Synergy-beta deal?

    Sorry, still learning about this particular system.

    Thanks!

    LS merchants are often several months late in paying affiliates, LS does not seem to mind this. It is apparently up to the affiliate to contact the merchant and raise h*ll with them if you want to get paid.
    LS has a way of tracking this down through their Synergy Analytics, but you need an engineering degree to use it.

    Additionally, Synergy Analytics has been having some real problems this last month (with no explanation from LS as to why). It has been up and down and payment some reports are currently not showing up timely like they should showing up.

    Oof. Ok, thanks for the info guys. The merchant I'm dealing with looks to have paid on time for a while now. It's just the last couple of months that aren't showing. I'm guessing that's related to the beta more than anything else.

    Don't assume anything. Usually the reports showing if a merchant paid have been pretty up to date I believe.

    I would contact LS directly and if they are not helful, then contact your merchant directly.

    Ok, will do. Thanks for the advice, Ron.

    By the way, love your signature. For one reason or another, I'm called a cynical bastard quite often... May have to steal that from you!
