    LinkShare + Google Check out
    My company is considering implementing Google Check Out. How will this affect LinkShare's tracking. What is LinkShare's stance on it. Thanks

    Google Checkout can (and should) be set up to not break LinkShare tracking. You should check with LinkShare and make sure to do extensive testing to make sure everything tracks (with any checkout modifications, not just Google Checkout).

    It can be done. I think if it helps generate a reservation via another method of payment for the merchant, LS should have no problems with that.

    I know this merchant have it and they mentioned that tracking is working on LS. Remove <DOT> in the URL below

    merchantx,
    LinkShare sales track with Google Checkout. Since our tracking technology does not use cookies, Google Checkout was easily integrated with our system. We have worked with Google to make sure that there were no issues for our merchants or affiliates.

    You should never assume that things don't affect tracking. Test. Test. Test.
