    Merchants Compliancy!
    Are merchant networks checked at all for compliancy such as paying commisions on sales? What other types of things are checked with merchants?

    Checked by whom? And are you just asking about ShareASale.com?

    As an affiliate, you can check to see when ShareASale last conducted its own "compliance check" for a merchant, by viewing the merchant details page. You'll see a line such as "Last Compliance Test Completed: 24-Dec-06"

    This compliance check does not entail placing a real order, however, so it is not really a complete compliance check; hopefully ShareASale.com can tell us what they do to verify compliance.

    Here on ABestWeb, affiliates can post their own experiences in the "Test Purchase Reports" sub-forum (http://forum.abestweb.com/forumdisplay.php?f=19). In general, before reporting a "test purchase," you should take steps to insure the validity of results (generally, flushing all cookies and restarting your browser before clicking on an affiliate link and then going through the order process at the merchant site).

    Of course, none of us reports every online purchase we make -- so it's often helpful to simply ask directly: "Has anyone here verified that XYZ.com is properly tracking and reporting transactions through ShareASale.com?"

    Also, note that some merchants explicitly block affiliates from earning commissions on their own links, so if you place your own test order at Amazon.com, your purchase will probably NOT appear in your reports, but this is not an indication that tracking does not work at Amazon.
