    7 day epc vs 7 day commission??
    I look at this one merchant and it says $28.16 EPC and yet the 7 day commission is $4

    Not sure i follow that.. I gathered that epc was for on average every 100 clicks across the board affiliates have made around $28 in commission..

    yet from what i can see here the 7 day commission is actually only $4

    can you clarify?

    "I look at this one merchant and it says $28.16 EPC and yet the 7 day commission is $4"

    That means, on average, affiliates are getting 7 sales per 100 clicks. 7 (sales) x $4 (average commission) = $28+ EPC

    Not sure that makes sense as....i see another one that is

    7 day epc is $219.74

    7 Day commission is $32.67

    32.67 x 7 = 228


    Then there is the 30 day

    30 day EPC is $191.02

    30 day commission is $32.51

    $32.51 x 7 = $227.57

    Is it all just an estimate

    What do you tend to look at with a merchant there 7 or 30 day?
    Do you look at EPC or commission?

    A reversal here and there could affect those numbers but for the most part, that's how it works.

    With a merchant at SAS. First I check to be sure they actually exist. Then I check to see if they're on Auto Deposit, only merchants I will even look at. I do look at the EPC and if they have $0, I'm just not willing to take a chance. I look at last commissionable transaction. I take a look at their site. I look at uptime history. I try to look at all the available information available and then make a judgement.

    The one you just posted, based solely on the EPC, looks good. Looks like somebody is doing well with them.

    And just saw the other thread where you were asking about it and Carolyn said:

    "- an EPC above $0.00
    - auto-deposit
    - solid creative/newsletters, etc (good indicators of affiliate manager involvement)"

    Couple of the same things and the creative/newsletters is a good point as well.

    When you click on View Merchant, it'll have -
    Last Commissionable Transaction through Affiliate: with that info

    and there is a Program Uptime History link to click to get that info.
