SAS Merchants "Temporarily Offline"
- Join Date
- January 18th, 2005
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:

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 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.Ron Bechdolt | Affiliate Program Management Consultant

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
