    $2.5K in sales

    Who knows that the hell an 'unqualified lead' is !
    I've never had a 'definative' answer for it, even on questioning merchants, don't think they know, probably just makes a nice change to invalid credit card!

    Ah well, this is the year for culling merchants and running a tighter ship.

    I love all that nice Performance Numbers, EPC, Reversal Rate etc. at CJ.
    I have a suggestion for an additional statistical number: PCRT (Probable Commission Reversal Threshold). That's the minimum Commission Amount for a Transaction for a Merchant, that gets most likely reversed by the merchant for dubious reasons .

    Who knows what that is for a Merchant who pays commission PER SALE

    What we do, If we see that and it looks too suspicious is, going to the Merchant Site (without CJ Cookie) and try to place an order with a fake credit card, such as Card Type: VISA, Name: WHATEVER, Card Number: 4242424242424242 (that number passes the mathematical check of the card number) and Expiration Date in the Future.
    We believe the merchant, when such an order goes through, because it means, that he is not processing a Credit Card Sale when the Order is placed.

    Hey Todd, I asked the question and reported details.
    I'm still no clearer as the answer is:
    The category is determinded by the advertiser, please contact them about it.

    I contacted the advertiser last week and haven't heard back, as yet.

    So...back to square one, it would be nice to know if it wasn't an invalid cc and the product was in stock, why the unqualified lead, because I can't think of any other reason a merchant would have for knocking back a sale.
