Remember my moan about how I was penalised other affiliates promoting a voucher code that they shouldn't be? Well since then I've heard nothing from the agency managing the program. I sent them the link and they said they would read the article but I've not heard any comments from them.
Anyway, a second sale was generated for them last week and alas, it too was cancelled. Different reason this time:
Dear Affiliate we were unable to process some of your transactions due to you not being the last referrer before the sale. Please contact xxx @ xxx.com if you wish to discuss this further. Kind regards, xxxThey're having a right laugh now!

I've emailed the network as I feel they should investigate how many cancellations are actually being made. Not sure if it will help but worth a shot.

It seems there are a fair few ways unscrupulous affiliates can sabotage your business and little you can do about it. Things need to be tightened up a little imo. Good luck getting it sorted :)

The merchant's affiliate is basically a marketplace for web distribution; they put an offer on the table and expect take up will be worthwhile. If most affiliates go on to sprint a brand regardless (most will), the merchant has no reason to change, the market is working well for them.

No comment as yet from the agency involved.

Thank you to all previous commenters.

This could be for a number of reasons but is most likely due to prevent the discussion from digressing.
