    SAS Merchants "Temporarily Offline"
    I'm not sure if this represents a change, but over the past few days I've noticed that there seem to be more "temporarily offline" merchants showing up on the first page (first 100 merchants) of my activity summary.

    Right now, 30 merchants (2%) are currently showing up as "Temporarily Offline" and another 337 merchants (26%) currently show "Low Funds", out of 1,303 ShareASale merchant programs that I've joined.

    Here is the current list of "Offline" merchants:

    Bed and Bath Luxury Decor - 9233
    Bedrock Inc. - 7323
    Brownturtle.com - 10689
    ChangingCourse.com - 3711
    CompuDesign Solutions - 9270
    Film Movement - 12089
    Filmsource - 10384
    Freebee Foreign Pharmacy - 10291
    Furniture-gallery.com - 1026
    Gonna Luv It - 9281
    Spamers - 10867
    HomeRoomTeacher - 10273
    Krudmart - 6568
    LamboDVD.com - 7326
    Lighthousefiber.com - 4424
    LingerieNewStyle.com - 9403
    Mark Scot Corporation - 8287
    MySunShades.com - 9486
    Oneida Marketing Enterprises LLC - 9271
    PantiesHerWay.com - 9981
    PaperPlain.com - 10708
    Rockers Worldwide, Inc. - 9668
    Samwell Group, Inc. - 4706
    Sik World - 12327
    SnapMonkey - 4686
    Tom Girl, Inc. - 91
    USBAY Portrait Museum - 7025
    Vertical Platform Lifts - 5278
    VintageTshirtStore - 9776
    WineRackStore.com - 9677

    I previously listed 99 merchants who had persistent "low funds" status in February when I was a member of only about half as many programs(http://forum.abestweb.com/showpost.p...06&postcount=6) -- I won't try to update that list.

    At least SaS lets us know what's going on.

    The only way I know when a merchant is low funds at CJ and LS is when they don't pay me for 4-5 months. I like the SaS system much better.

    When I see the low funds flag it just tells me the merchant is converting. Those usually come back quickly. When one goes offline and I have to remove the links I also remove myself from the program. It's that easy. I replace the links with a merchant who isn't offline and move on.

    We put our account on auto withdrawal.
    We found that the e-mails from SAS often are in our spam filters and missed their low funds alert.

    We not only put our funds on autowithdrawal, but upped our deposit alert level and to make sure we don't run out of funds. It is very easy on an active day for ones funds to run low if your deposit alert level is set at, lets say $50, and you have several sales come in before the autowithdrawal can occur. It's just not worth the chance and easy enough to do.

    Hi Ron, that's a great idea, I just changed ours to a higher level also.

    All of us suggest 'auto deposit' to merchants from day one. I also suggest a minimum of 200.00 See '05 post: 15 Steps for a shareasale startup success and even Trust Auto Deposit Merchants - Where You At

    By the 200.00 minimum you will prevent the constant going on/off so many times and may also apply and perhaps qualify for SAS Premier
