    Link ID being switched
    My linkshare id starts with /ShM but I notice many merchants change the link to _ShM when the destination page is reached. Are the sales being tracked?

    sounds like time for a very small test order followed by a talk with LinkSnare

    I have a slash in mine, too, and I've noticed the same thing (replaced with a _). It doesn't seem to affect tracking. That's one thing that's always concerned me, though. Do all merchants process it correctly? It seems much more likely to get mangled than a normal alphanumeric code.

    MC, I did 2 tests on our side via your site-link. Everything is showing up and everything was passed to LS. As to ALL, I can't really tell you as only LS can do that.
