I decided to dip my toes into Shareasale and signed up for an account last night. Managed to get auto-approved (I don't know if they do this for everyone or not). Anyway, I sent a request out to one of the merchants that looked good for one of my projects. They emailed back this morning telling me that I needed to update my Shareasale profile with a real contact name...but it is my real name. My real, full name. Then a few hours later (before I had even seen the first message) they decided to decline my application. So yeah...thanks Mom and Dad.
