    Ebay - wrong calculation for commissions again?
    I have tons of "winning bid" commissions from February which are 1/10 - 1/30th the amount that they should be, and I have received no notice from eBay that a "make good" is on the way.

    I also have tons of "winning bid" commissions in March that are wrong as well.

    In my case, there are many items (normally around $5-15) in which I've been given a commission of 1-5 cents (whereas the absolute minimum - even during free listing day/week - should be 8.75 % of the sale * 50%.

    I was wondering if others have had the same experience these past 4-5 weeks, and if they've tried to contact CJ and/or eBay about it (does eBay have an affiliate e-mail address?)

    Hi!

    Affiliates have been discussing the "wacky" commissions since 2/18/08 --

    http://forums.ebay.com/db1/thread.js...=1204749479063

    eBay did send out emails to some affiliates regarding commissions not being correct and stated they will be "making" good.

    We can only wait & will see ...

    Make good for February posted for me and I am satisfied.

    There are issues in March still which I'm sure will also be straightened out.

    Two issues for me:
    1. I believe that there is tracking problem, daily number of sales dropped 70% since Feb and have not recovered.
    2. The amount of "make good" did not bring my EPC to anywhere near my average EPC. So Ebay didn't calculate the "make good" based on my average EPCs.

    I got the "make good" but I'm certain it wasn't nearly enough. It was about 2-3% of my total revenue, whereas a sampling of my sales indicate that I lost around 30-40%. Of course, I am not going to manually sift through every single individual sale to calculate the exact make good value, so I'm not sure what to do.

    Do they label the "make good" with any specific language - how do you know where to look?

    Only extras I see are the "performance incentive"

    You have to export your daily report to CSV and look at it from there.
