    Question How many merchants?
    Hi,

    my question is - how many merchants are there on Linkshare? When i login into my affiliate account and then go to "All categories" page, i see 146 merchants only. That's all, or they have more somewhere else? It looks strange for me that they have only 146, when others like CJ or Shareasale have thousands. So probably i'm missing something here.

    Thanks you.

    Hi unr8ed,

    Did you have to apply to get to see the short list? I am new to the affiliate market and am learning to juggle accounts, website updates, etc--all the things I know about to make this work ( and am completely boggled at the thought of all the things I haven't learned yet and should be doing )

    I have a niche site so, I don't know if LinkShare has anything I want.

    I would love to see a full merchant listing. Am I missing the merchant listing link on the LinkShare site?

    Connie

    Hi Connie,

    partial list is here .

    But, on the same page it says:
    Over 600 premiere online Merchants use LinkShare to build, manage and track the success of their pay for performance marketing programs.
    But i can't find those 600 merchants even when logged in.

    Linkshare has many, perhaps hundreds, of merchants with "Closed" programs, i. e. FULL. The way LS works is, if a program is closed, it doesn't show up in the "Join Programs" section.

    Thanks AffiliateHound, this makes sense. Though not sure why so many merchants choose to "close" their programs and limit number of affiliates? Or limits are imposed by Linkshare itself?

    Thanks again.

    unr8ed,

    It makes no sense to me.

    There was a thread earlier this month that discussed this point. Some posts discussed a merchant that had dropped all but 40 affiliates.

    As far as LS is concerned, 4-5 years ago, I was interested in the JCPenny and GE programs, but they have both been "Closed" for at least that long.

    Try this. After logging in Click on Join Programs.

    See the box that says FIND A MERCHANT BY NAME

    Don't put anything in it. Leave it blank. Just click go.
