    We tried this awhile back and I think it is something we definately need. If you make a purchase with a merchant, be it a test or any purchase why not list the results all in one thread. IMO it is something to help us keep track of merchants and tracking but it will also keep the merchants on their toes knowing that at anytime a positive or negative purchase result will show up and it could be them.

    Haiko, any chance of having a catagory just for test purchase results from merchants?

    By all means this isn't just to list test sales that didn't track. Please list the results of sales that do show up for a merchant also. That will let us all know who is on the up and up and who isn't. Any thoughts????

    MERCHANTS BEWARE!!!

    Great idea for a thread. My timing is bad, though... I made a purchase tonight for a cj merchant who batches, and now cj is doing maintenance (unless I am remembering the date wrong), so it'll likely be a few days before it shows up.

    I've purchased from the following and had all track correctly (probably others, but this is everything I can think of off the top of my head):

    Overstock (LS)
    Hammacher-Schlemmer (Performics)
    PetSmart (BeFree)
    WBShop (CJ)

    Excellent thread idea, Packster!

    The idea of a test purchase thread would be great since it is the only way to reward a merchant like TigerDirect thta posted my 4 sales within 2 days. It alos is a RED FLAG to the merchants and networks when I performed several tests on Dell -The Outpost -Camera Zone and others where they not only didn't report the sales but me or a friend actually received the product.

    Getting a merchant to respond to e-mails on an acquisations they are defrauding their affiliates is a tough one and therefore this type of public stockaide is necesary. Make sure all the pertinent information is provided along with provable backup to the claim they don't record sales or reverse legit sales. Then let's bring the networks to tasks for sponsoring crooks.

    I have made multiple purchases through Tiger Direct, I am a geek after all, and one through Overstock and they all tracked wonderfully.
