    16,232 DID NOT track with PayPal
    I placed an order this morning with and paid with PayPal. It did not track. (I'm pretty sure they report real-time with a tracking pixel, which was never triggered in the PayPal checkout path.)

    It's amazing how many merchants DON'T track with PayPal and/or Google Checkout.

    Yep, real time. I've never felt comfortable with those checkout systems and tracking, why I never post up those deals for them (Google checkout and paypal deals) when merchants have them.

    I wish networks or some independent party had testing where affiliates can look and see date tested, how it went etc. Right now it's this, our own testing with a merchant here and there.
