    I am a publisher. In some advertiser details page, there is a line state

    Batch Transaction Allowed
    last transaction date/date/date

    What is this actually? Is it a good feature for publishers?

    Rather than report each sale individually, some merchants batch them. You cannot track individual sales this way, so no, it is not beneficial to the publisher. Also, there are some merchants who only report one batch per month. Hotel Discounts is one such merchant.

    I believe that CJ charges the merchant less per batch than they charge per transaction.

    A quick clarification on batch transactions -

    CJ charges the same rate for batched or real-time transactions.

    Good CJ merchants batch transactions everyday. I would check the dates to make sure it is a consistent schedule.

    I hope that helps.

    Actually this is not correct in all cases. I know of an advertiser through CJ who does a CPC. Reporting each click would be cost prohibitive under CJ's fee schedule. He batches and reports once per day.

    Batch transactions aren't necessarily a bad thing as long as batches are sent every day: they give publishers the ability to perform some verification for fraud before sending orders to CJ or only sending orders to CJ once they are shipped etc.

    In our case we do not batch, but we do not send orders the instant a sale is made either: we store PID and AID in our order database, and once the domain name is registered and the credit card is successfully charged we send the order data to CJ. With most domains this only takes a couple of minutes but for some of the country TLDs (such as .de and .co.uk) it can take a few days and transfer can take up to two weeks (but are typically two days).
