    Generated product link goes to merchant homepage, not the product
    Is this a common problem with LinkShare merchants?

    Welcome to ABW there DavidPesta.
    This could be due to a product being sold out, or possibly on back order or many other things. Suggest you see if that product is still available for that merchant.

    Thank you for the response.

    Looks like the product becomes available 12-14-07 so it is not available yet.

    Strange that it appears as a product at all if it isn't intended to work yet.

    Nope, it looks like most or all of the LS links to products for this merchant go to the merchant's home page.

    What does this usually mean?

    LS says that it could take up to an hour for links to become active, until they become active they will go to the merchants home page. Usually when I've generated links they've become active in only a few minutes, however I have had to wait up to several hours at times.

    Give it until tomorrow morning and if they're still not working then enter a support ticket.
