Some times a merchant's program just doesn't work out and you want to delete them from your publisher account reports. On CJ, Linkshare, and some other programs it's easy (CJ clears your account with a single click)... but NOT so with Reporting.net/befree. I have merchants on there that I've now emailed termination requests two or three times, and I'd like to nuke a few more. Anyone know how to clear out the deadwood merchant programs on Reporting.net?

I don't think there is a way other than emailing the merchant. At least I could not find another way.

I am having the opposite problem right now. Various merchants have gone out of business or otherwise dropped their affiliate program, and I cannot generate statistics any more. After their program is gone, these merchants do not show up at all on reporting.net, so I can't access the reports. With cj/linkshare it is easy to generate reports for discontinued affiliates, but does anyone know how to generate a report on Reporting.net for a merchant that no longer has an active affiliate program?

I don't think these merchants will end up paying, but I still want to know how much they owe me for curiosity and accounting purposes.

Hi Mike, welcome to WebmasterWorld.

I also have a few merchants I want to delete from a couple of my reporting.net accounts, but haven't seen a way either.

Since reporting.net offer a way to consolidate your accounts, they should provide a way for removing accounts. I emailed them on Feb.13 asking this, and have yet to receive a reply. (at least they're consistent)

As far as generating reports on dead merchant accounts, I have no idea. I haven't run into that situation myself, I have only used a handful of befree programs thus far. You may want to try emailing them at help@befree.com .

Well, just took a look at my inbox, and lo-and-behold I got a reply! Check out the dates (this email created today.) Guess it's better late than never.

Hi Ken,

Thank you for your message. You will need to notify the non-performing
merchants about your interest to be inactivated. They can then remove you
from their affiliate system.

Thank you!

Best regards,

I have a couple of merchants that are no longer performing. These
merchants are consolidated on one of my accounts with another merchant
that is performing. I would like to delete one or more of the
non-performing merchant programs from my account/reporting.net login.
How can I do this?


Looks like mike was right - gotta email 'em individually.

>gotta email 'em individually.

I did. They responded after a few months (not kidding), and said they'd remove it. That was 3 months ago.... they're still there.
