Default Linkhsare urls

Hi Eric/Stefan,
On my fancydress2u store, I keep looking at my stats on linkshare and im not getting any clicks registered. Although on all my other networks they are showing clicks, and even commissions, It seems like linkshares links arent tracking properly.

I keep checking that ive set up the aff IDs correctlya and I believe i have.

Im stuck can you help please?

What's a URL of a product details page on your site that has a Linkshare product?

I guess you followed the instructions here: As your links redirect fine it looks to me you're using the right affiliate ID.

In case you were using the wrong Linkshare affiliate ID you would never be redirected to the merchant's site.

Instead you would get a page with as message "Invalid Publisher Code, Offer, or Publisher - Advertiser Partnership Status". Just click the link below to see what I mean.

You will not see any impressions in your Linkshare stats as you're only using the affiliate link. Impressions can only be tracked when the affiliate code includes an additional 1x1 pixel image URL.

Regarding clicks it's possible visitors didn't click on any Linkshare product links since the last time you noticed clicks.

In any way in order to test I've clicked a couple of times on several Linkshare product links in your store.

So you should see some clicks in Linkshare's reports later today or tomorrow (not sure when Linkshare updates its reports).

If you continue to see no clicks in your reports it's best to submit a support ticket in Linkshare or contact the merchant directly as we're not able to see what's happening at Linkshare's end after the click.
