    Access to Sales Info from Networks
    Can I get my sales info from ShareASale, Linkshare, and Performics on a daily basis programmatically?

    CJ offers sales info via Webservices, although it's not the greatest interface, and I mine that every day to get my sales from the previous day.

    Do any of the other networks offer that kind of functionality? It's a pain having to log in to slow networks every day (Linkshare especially -- how much are they making off each transaction?) to retrieve this info.

    Thanks!

    My understanding is that the networks are concerned about an increase in server load.

    At one point, I proposed developing an open source affiliate statistics program:

    There are several solutions out there right now, but none of them are complete. For instance, AffTrack doesn't include LinkShare and AffMeter doesn't include ShareASale.com or AvantLink.

    I still think a community-developed open-source solution would be best, but it just hasn't got off the ground.

    Would be great to get sales info across the board from affiliates sales, merchants sales, networks and even indies.

    Good suggestion, why I bumped it.
