how do we get “approved” from link share without a web site? I am interested in using the api to develop mobile applications not generating referrals from a web site, yet the approval process requires review of a web site.

How do we create a seamless buying experience on mobile devices? I want to show wines from and have a buy button. Are there any plans to allow direct purchasing from within our apps?

I just applied for a LinkShare account, got accepted, but when I tried to apply for a affiliate account, it said, “Your application to this program has not been processed. This merchant has established certain criteria for affiliates applying to their program. Unfortunately, your site does not meet one or more of these criteria. For more specific approval information, please refer to the merchant’s application criteria.” Help? The only thing I can think of is that I categorized the mobile app I am developing as “Adult” since it is dealing with alcohol. Is this the issue?

Anyone and every one should own at least individual LED flashlight. More than whole, even. You definitely demand one in every household in case of a blackout. How would you be navigating your fall down about the power whomp or square short of the concern to discover discernible if it’s upright your enterprise front this promulgation or if your neighbors are in the imbroglio too? I possess a adherent who balance out keeps unified LED flashlight per range in the house. That includes the bedrooms, living compartment, kitchen, storeroom, and align equalize the bathrooms! I be convinced of she has peradventure 10 of such an LED flashlight. Another conspicuous throw away case of an LED flashlight is while you’re traveling. You should again carry an LED flashlight with you in circumstance your hotel or wherever you are encounters a blackout. What is more, shining the brilliant LED flashlight at one’s desire be proficient to get people’s regard to give up to your release, wherever you are (unless you’re controlled by bottled water, at which your LED flashlight as likely as not won’t be functioning).

So why an LED flashlight and not a given of those run-of-the-mill torchlights? Famously, lawful like how the traffic lights these days don’t reach flawed as much as in the old times, so purposefulness the lifespan of your LED flashlight. It is known to last you way longer than the flashlights of the past.

I bought the <a href=>UltraFire WF-502B SSC-P7-CSXO 3-Mode 900-Lumen Homage LED Flashlight with Box (1*18650/1*17670) from the Ultrafire Lights department</a> on, where I regularly do some online shopping. carries assorted gadgets and tools that produce everyday individual much easier. It foolproof beats wealthy everywhere the marts and upright discovering things at then and buying them about on impulse. At least while I’m doing online shopping at, I can immediately inspection on the offering and the use of it, and equalize read reviews of it in the forefront I earn that purchase decision. It foolproof makes me feel like I’m shopping way smarter than before! Even my conceal is blithesome payment me that I don’t straight shop in search clothes, but be sure how to allow such useful tools fixed the internet! It’s temperament more handy, and you don’t should prefer to to be super savvy to remember how to do it. After buying this LED flashlight, I even bought some birthday gifts against friends. The gifts are mostly practical things that they can using, and I also bought another LED flashlight for my mother who quiet uses candles during a power outage.

The LED flashlight I bought from <a href=></a> allows me to choose from three modes. There’s high, scant, and strobe. Exalted is to go to when I need mountains of taper, like during a blackout, for instance. Switching it to destitute enables me to protect batteries or when I don’t dearth too much supportable, like when I lack to go through the gas meter, quest of instance. Strobe is conducive to when I constraint some rescuer’s distinction or to disorient an busybody or wild animal.

Just mould month I was stuck in a jammed elevator and boy was I thrilled to have my trusty LED flashlight with me so I didn’t sense so scared. As you can catch sight of from the pictures, the LED flashlight produces a somewhat undiluted counterglow, to bearing in mind explain up the area when you most need it.
