Also called an affiliate, a publisher displays ads, text links, or product links from an advertiser in return for a commission when a sale is made or when a lead is acquired. The sale can also be tied to a specific action such as filling out a form or downloading a trial. LinkShare facilitates relationships between publishers and advertisers by providing the underlying technology that manages links, tracks results and commissions, and sends payments.

I have been using Linkshare since two years now. Well, I can say that the first four month were not easy. Always a big zero, then started to engage more with Link Share and finally had my first $12.50 in comm.

Since than things have been going steady, seven month later reached my first $100 bucks and now I am about $2500 monthly which is not too bad.


LinkShare sucks. Been using it for years and haven’t seen a penny of revenue yet. Complete waste of time

I forwarded traffic toward LinkShare for three years starting in 2013. I received a $9 check about two months after I started the site – nothing since. In September, I received two letters indicating I had unclaimed property with them & to return an enclosed forms to have the checks re-cut. That was over two months ago. No checks, and the contact e-mail is being kicked back as undeliverable.

Hard to make a claim of “scam”, not being on the inside, but I used to work for a Digital Marketer in Valparaiso, IN, and that company stopped sending checks to clients, then stopped paying employees, then, you guessed it, out of business. I’m not holding my breath for the remainder.


I’ve been with Linkshare longer than ANY OTHER network and I’ve never earned a dime from them. Not ONE dime.

I do like the ease of their deep linking feature – this is my favorite option.

I just signed up with LinkShare and it seems pretty good so far.

When it comes to tracking and the depth of reports, LinkShare stands head and shoulders above the rest of the market. The depth of reporting is outstanding from the merchants side, and is easy to use and dig in to.

A real key benefit of LinkShare is that they provide the affiliates full contact information, so that when you are reviewing an applicant, you can see exactly who you will be partnering with, not just an anonymous number or a weird user name.

The other is the ability to “un cut” audit click trails from Affiliates. Very few other networks provide this, or want to provide it.

LinkShare support has alwways been a concern and has never been constant, I often feel that the total Newbies at Linkshare are given the support roles and told “learn from the customers”.

Due to the way Linkshare handles client payments there can be delays in how commissions are paid. LinkShare has yet (to my knowledge) to really enforce a system of collections that ensures everyone is paying, and paid, on time.


linkshare is great to an extent – I have not played around much with the new interface but it does have nice offers, just hate waiting to get approve is the downside I think. the old reporting was a little tiresome and I still can’t enter my bank info in my account, not sure why. but will be playing around with the new interface and see if they have changed anything much.
