    Any way of getting email notifications?
    Is there any way of receiving an email notification when you receive a sale from one of Linkshare's merchants?

    I know many of us's inboxes would quickly fill up on a daily basis, but I have yet to get to this stage

    As a merchant, we get mail notification from SaS each time a transaction occurs - but we don't use LS - so I can't help you on that one, but it's yet another reason that I'm a SaS fan.

    That ain't going to happen with any networks. I do get them for some indy's, ones using the MYAP software have this.

    It is possible with some programming and i am not sure if it is worth your time.

    Just thinking out loud.

    Use the Linkshare Signature Program (&u1)
    -they allow you to FTP into their server
    -pull data from that
    -set it up on your system to pharse info
    -have your system email you

    I would think it will be easier to login and check your stats but then again, with the right programming skills, that is possible

    Thanks for that, Eric.

    I've worked out how to get the file, but now need to work out how to parse it. Might get some custom coding done

    Welcome harvey.

    Not sure if it is worth your time doing that but it is nice though. If you make it, maybe you can sell the right to one of those guys like AMWSO (OPM) or one of those "Other Networks". Or just sell it for $9.99/year. I am sure somebody might like the tool.

    all the best

    Sounds like a plan - I'll get it custom coded this week.

    - And if anybody wants a copy of the script (you'll probably need access to cronjobs), drop me a PM and I'll give you my PP address
