Itemized Tracking - Bulk Upload: Correct Transactions


A bulk upload of corrected orders allows you to provide changes to orders that you previously sent to the itemized commissioning system, which may include returned items or order cancellations, quantity increase or decrease of ordered items, or pricing changes for ordered items.


  • ORDER_ID and ITEM_ID cannot be changed. If there is an error with ORDER_ID and ITEM_ID, please contact your Account Manager. You can set all quantities to 0 (zero) and submit a new order with a new unique ORDER_ID if you need to change these values (see Itemized Tracking - Bulk Upload: New Orders).

Corrections may not be applied to orders after the locking period has passed.

Locking periods vary by affiliate program. Please consult your account strategist for further information.
