    Old Reports vs SA Reports
    I noticed today that my SA reports show me making more in commissions for the period of this month than the old (user-friendly) reports show.

    Does anyone else see discrepancies like this?

    I noticed a big difference in Oct. and Nov. but this month is running even.

    I am looking at the sales & activity reports on both the old and the SA.

    It was discussed before. If I remember, they don't report exactly the same data.
    Anyway, the sales & activity reports can only be seen in the old reports. I can't imagine going thru "the Date Range" in SynergyAnalytics. It's going to take them an other 5 years for something acceptable, or can we still expect REAL TIME reporting with a real interface from a real affiliate friendly network?

    SA is god-awful. Reporting different numbers is the least of its problems.

    Michelle the SA report includes those sales that came in too late for inclusion in the November reports. In the old reports for December, if you choose "Member ID field report" (assuming of course that you applied to LS for this option) you should get the exact same balance each month.

    Thanks Grumpy,

    I took a look and using that report it narrowed it down to only a 2 cent difference!

    Michelle you're welcome, and I'm glad that your reports now tally (except for the cents) . Sometimes orders for the previous month can come in as late as 2-3 weeks after the fact, so the "field" report is pretty handy. It also gives you a better idea of how much your next check will be, as LS combines the late-reported sales with the current month's sales.
