    LinkShare MID help
    Anyone know where I can get the MID for a LinkShare merchant? It's supposed to be the merchant id number.

    Anyone get the LS webservices working yet?

    If you're just looking for an individual merchant, you can find it in the LinkShare interface. Go to Your Account and select the merchant's MID you're looking for. If you look at the URL, it will contain something like controlpage.shtml?mid=12345. That number is the MID.

    If you're looking for all of them, the easiest way to find them is to run GetAllLinks with the HomeLink feed. That will give you one (home page) link per merchant, and there are fields with the merchant name and the MID.

    Dholland,
    You can see a list of MIDs in the Merchant Payment History report in SynergyAnalytics. This is listed under Payment Analysis and select Merchant Payment History.

    If you are still having problems with Link Locator Direct, email linklocatordirect@linkshare.com and they can help you with your Web Services questions.

    Hey Michael,

    Where do we find the "HomeLink feed" that you refer to here?

    Thanks,

    -Mike

    The HomeLink feed/API is part of their LinkLocatorDirect webservice.
