    Why so many late payments by merchants?
    Linkshare Moderator,

    I just looked at Synergy Analytics and checking out merchant payments, I have a handful where their last payment to LinkShare was April 28th. Why are these merchants being allowed to be this late?

    I have one LS merchant that has yet to pay me for February. However, since the same merchant pays over 3 times more on Incent-A-Click, I switched my links over and have already been paid for that merchant through May with Incent-A-Click.

    This says a lot about why I only promote about a dozen LS merchants.

    The same merchant on LS and IncentaClick? I didn't think that was possible.

    One of my LS merchants is typically always on time with payments. However, there last payment to LS was indeed on the 28th. This porgram is run by LS and I have tried to contact numerous times. What a joke!

    Use this payment history stat as the absolute indicator that the merchant is just a branding Adwhore run operation, not giving any regard as to value-add affiliate sales force. The are pure play advertisers seeing only the network commission bill as the only advertising expense that isn't pre-paid. Therefore it doesn't get paid on time as the click traffic just keeps on rolling in...
