    That's not right. It should have shown. I would contact ebay about this. Show them your proof when writing in. I have heard many stories like yours. A lot of affiliates say the new system is flawed. I just don't what to believe. I do know my earnings have dropped big time since the switch.

    When I say show them proof, I mean supply them with the item # in question so ebay can track where the sale came from.

    Good luck

    I don't trust their new system. I'm sure they will get it ironed out but till then...

    Honestly, I couldn't generate enough money from the Ebay program. I went back to Adsense and I'm currently running CPM pop-unders with Viralytics Media. Making a little more money now.

    My earnings this month are less than 1/3 of the April earnings, and I am including the CJ commissions!

    How are the rest of you doing?

    Switched over April 1. April was down 40% from March. May is down another 40%.

    The EPN tracking or reporting is severely ****ed, but they claim otherwise.

    Perfect way to save money: short affiliates and claim there's no problem.

    Our eBay earnings are about double what they were last month. That's probably not a good representation of affiliate sales in general though. Our site traffic is increasing partly because of momentum but also because we've been continually adding new products.
    On another subject, I opened a thread about this earlier but haven't gotten any response so I'll ask here. Do your earnings listed on your downloaded report match those shown in the online report? When the figures in the "Amount" column on the spreadsheet are added together for any given day, they are significantly higher than the total given in the online report [by day]. I divided by 2 thinking the figures perhaps were eBay's TOTAL fees, but they still don't out. Any ideas?

    Looks like a common theme on the ebay discussion board with May 10 -12 marking a significant error which they have not yet acknowledged.

    Additionally this auctiva issue has me questioning a serious conflict of interest presently occuring in thousands of listings.

    I've noticed that ebay is not responding to the affiliate on their board seeking answers on this issue.

    Far as I can tell you could be driving tons of traffic to ebay only to get your cookie hijacked by Auctiva.

    Bobby has done a remarkable job describing the problem both here and on the ebay boards. Hopefully it won't fall on deaf ears.

    Correction: I forgot to include the ebay program earnings for April - my earnings in May are less than 1/4 those of April!

    This same thing happened to me last September, when ebay was giving away listings for a month. Funny how a lot of smaller affiliates seem to see their commissions unexplainably, and with statistical probability near zero, suddenly stop.

    I have also noticed a lot of other affiliates on other forums also getting a steep decline in sales since they changed the links to Ebay's in house program, very strange! I was getting sales sometimes daily for a number of sites, since I moved them to Ebay I have had one tiny sale worth a few cent's for just one site and that certainly does not add up as I'm getting as many if not more clicks. Either they have yet to report my sales as often they were delayed up to a month on CJ or something is seriously wrong here with this new Ebay network????

    The only response they have is...

    "It's hard for us to tell if there is a problem from reading our boards.."

    lame.

    I think there is something broken in the new system. I wonder how much in earned commissions will not be paid out.

    "This outside company has already begun to work with our teams. Their plan is to test some of the more basic things quickly and then finish the full test sometime in August. We plan to share the results of that test with you when complete, and will keep you updated as they complete different parts of their analysis."

    Anyone else notice that you can no longer see the RSS button below each page since these tracking issues.

    Same terrible story here.

    Switched over June 1. May (CJ tracking) was down 40% from April. June is down another 40%.

    "Regarding the tracking issues that have been reported, hopefully you're seeing that we're actively looking into them in from the posts from some of your fellow affiliates who we've been working with directly. So that you know more of what's going on behind the scenes right now, we have our teams looking into the traffic drop around the May 12th timeframe (this has been an ongoing investigation for a while) as well as the more recent Editor Kit-specific issues that have been reported. I don't have anything concrete to provide right now but we will keep you updated with additional posts when we have more information, hopefully later this week. And just to make sure that everyone is aware, the makegood policy has stayed the same on eBay Partner Network as it was on CJ. If and when we find any tracking issues that affect affiliate commissions, we will issue makegoods to the affiliates who were affected."
