    Question Can incentive sites work with Linkshare?
    I own and run a cash incentive website, and I have started as an affiliate with Linkshare. I haven't used the advertisers I applied with yet, for two reasons.

    1. I find the site a bit confusing, and I'm not sure how to code the links, in order to track which of my members to credit.

    2. I am not sure if they will allow incentivized traffic.

    Okay that's 3 reasons, but I digress...

    The affiliate sites I am used to using are structured much differently.

    I would appreciate any info. in these areas.

    TIA,
    Rachelle

    Rachelle,

    The answer is Yes, you can do it.

    There is a program called linkshare signature. Look it up.
    On there, it will let you assign ID to each member and you can pull reports based on that ID. Then you will have to process the ID to credit your members. It should be automated as it will be a pain if you do it manually.

    Also, you can FTP to their server to pull that report.

    Info I pulled from LS
    Signature (u1) allows affiliates to track and generate detailed reports on the commerce activity generated by its site down to the transaction level of each individual member, organization, or sub site. To be enabled for LinkShare Signature Technology, follow these steps:
    -- Access the Affiliate Resource Center in the upper right hand corner of your Home Page
    -- Select the LinkShare Signature Technology link in the Products and Services section
    -- Review the LinkShare Signature Overview
    -- Submit the Signature Request form to signature@linkshare.com

    If you choose Signature (u1) to track your sub sites, you will have access to two additional reports the Member ID Click Report (records all click-throughs) and the Member ID Field Reports (itemizes transactions made by each sub site).
