Linkshare can suck my ...

    I can guarantee Linkshare is stealing my commissions. I have had 232 clicks on my iTunes aff links, and 0 sales. It's funny that 2 of those were me, and I bought something, but still no commissions.

    I've had 522 clicks in the last 2 months with 0 sales.

    3 of the programs I used over at CPA Storm. I was getting 1 conversion every 20 clicks (probably a better ratio than that). One program I have had 174 clicks in the last 2 months, nothing.

    Anything I can do, or just drop them and start promoting something else?

    Exact same thing happened to me. Both with iTunes and Netflix.

    Linkshare is notorious for thieving commissions. Same thing happened on some car rentals and cosmetic links.
    They don't suck, they blow.

    Funny, I haven't had any problems with Linkshare but I can't be 100% sure that I'm getting all of my commissions. Maybe you should talk to your sponsor and explain your concerns. I would definitely tell him/her that you or someone you know purchased a product with your affiliate link and it didn't show up. See what he/she says.

    I have had literally thousands of itunes clicks with no sales.
    I only promote it now when I play with cs ideas.

    Looks like it's time to add them to the "Fuck Bags" list.

    make sure it is real time reporting. some netflix links only report every 21 days. However with that being said, I get scammed all the time on my leads. Pisses me off. I believe they pay huge payouts sometimes because they only pay 7 out of 10 leads.

    Well, I emailed them and basically called them out saying how I made 1 conversion every 20 clicks with CPA Storm. So guess what?

    They put one $35 commission in my account. I am going to email back and kindly tell them that it was a nice gesture, but it is at least $400 short.

    Last week I emailed them to tell them that itunes clicks were lagging a day behind impressions and sales were lagging a day behind the clicks. As of today it looks like all of the clicks and sales have disappeared.

    I dunno...I guess they have two presidents to pay now.
