    Perfume.com telephone tracking

    Right in the Shareasale interface they have their URL listed as "http://www.perfume.com/index.php?ref=150", so presumably anything that comes to them through a Shareasale link is going to get tagged as with a referrer of "150".

    *bump*

    The affiliate contact page on the Shareasale site does not work.

    This is an awfully interesting development from a merchnat who prohibits affiliates from "using marketing tactics that potentially divert commissions".

    Report them to SAS for advertising fraudulent services to affiliates. I just did that to a CJ merchant. No one benefits with these con artists.

    And thanks to AFW, we're able to spread the word quickly--there's nothing like a group boycott, still works.

    I didn't see anyone come by and tell us what's happening or what the solution is. I checked my links and mine come up with 150 also.

    Is their telephone tracking broken and they don't know it?

    ....and they don't know it?

    How would they "don't know it" when every telephone order has the same ID number? And that ID number is the one they input themselves in the destination URL for their Shareasale links.

    I've just tried it and I can't see any Aff ID (I came through the link in the SAS interface, even changed the ref number at the end). Just the telephone number with no indication of any aff tracking whatsoever.

    Ah, now I see it - at the very BOTTOM of the page, written in a very small, almost invisible font. There is, however, no aff ID right at the top, at the visible phone number.
    And BTW it changes. Try this:
    http://www.perfume.com/index.php?ref=256

    As for the changing aff id - these work, the number changes:
    http://www.perfume.com/index.php?ref=150
    http://www.perfume.com/index.php?ref=256 (example)

    but this doesn't
    http://www.perfume.com/index.php?ref=12345

    So maybe they are checking against the DB of existing affiliates or whatever.

    "So maybe they are checking against the DB of existing affiliates or whatever"

    What will they need to cross-reference when the ID is "150" every time? What are the chances that this is an innocent mistake? Even if it was, what are the chances that they would not have caught on to the fact that all incoming affiliate-referred telephone orders are being credited to the same source?

    This is a more blatant and insidious diversion than anything that is done by the parasitic apps that Shareasale does not allow to use the program at all. In this case, the merchant (or one of their employees) is the parasite.
