    I used to average 75% of my eBay Leads were accepted within 24 hours. This was prior to the CJ update. Since the update, I've noticed that only about 33% of them are accepted in this time frame, with the rest being Extended.

    I've changed nothing on my site that would encourage more sign ups without bidding, so I'm just wondering if anyone else has noticed this trend. For April, well over half of all the Leads I generated are extended, much higher than ever before. This trend looks to be continuing for May.

    Has anyone else noticed anything similar?

    My ebay leads and sales are down in general for the last month. Kinda strange, because there's always some dolt looking for a cell-phone booster or laser pointer!

    I am doing an experiment between befree and CJ when it comes to eBay. Here are some results:

    I changed 1 site over to befree on Apr 28th and since then got:
    Apr 28: 2 leads 15 sales = 10.75
    Apr 29: 3 leads 14 sales = 15.70
    Arp 30: 1 leads 16 sales = 5.80
    May 1: 1 leads 14 sales = 5.70
    May 2: 2 leads 16 sales = 10.80
    May 3: 1 leads 13 sales = 5.65
    May 4: 3 leads 18 sales = 15.90
    May 5: 2 leads 16 sales = 10.80
    May 6: 2 leads 10 sales = 10.50

    Then I put that site back to CJ for May 7

    May 7: 1 lead 3 sales = 5.15

    Remember, Befree are all confirmed trxns, not like CJ's which are likely to be reversed. However Befree is not offering the incentives that they do on CJ as far as I can see.

    It's hard to make a conclusion based on a single day of CJ Sales. If you don't mind, please post an updated list for comparison after a few days.

    I've noticed that my Ebay sales are way down for May as opposed to April and March...

    Look again. The terms are the same.

    I've switched one page over, but am finding a real cookie effect! I switched the page to BF links on 5.5.03, but most of my sales and buy it's are still coming to cj! Going to leave it for the whole month and analyze then, since I am also interested in seeing the difference of seeing only validated transactions rather than the heartbreak of reversals.

    Just following up with my numbers....


    Ebay with BeFree:
    Apr 28: 2 leads 15 sales = 10.75
    Apr 29: 3 leads 14 sales = 15.70
    Arp 30: 1 leads 16 sales = 5.80
    May 1: 1 leads 14 sales = 5.70
    May 2: 2 leads 16 sales = 10.80
    May 3: 1 leads 13 sales = 5.65
    May 4: 3 leads 18 sales = 15.90
    May 5: 2 leads 16 sales = 10.80
    May 6: 2 leads 10 sales = 10.50

    Ebay with CJ:
    May 7: 1 lead 3 sales = 5.15
    May 8: 1 lead 15 sales = 5.75
    May 9: 2 lead 13 sales= 10.65
    May 10: 0 lead 15 sales = .75
    May 11: 0 lead 10 sales = .50
    May 12: 0 lead 15 sales = .75

    getting about the same results you are getting. Your sales and leads with ebay look almost identical to mine. I made the switch to BeFree and so far so good.

    Stupid questions #843 and #844:

    843. Does Befree include the international affiliates (ebay.ca, ebay.com.au, ebay.co.uk) the same way CJ Does?

    844. If so, through Befree do you get a single consolidated check for the above, or would you have to meet minimums for each one (the VAST majority of my sales/leads come from ebay.com, but I occasionally get a co.uk registration that adds nicely).

    I really wish Ebay.de had an affiliate program...

    My understanding is that you will see some extended transactions become accepted during batch uploads. The example I was told on was if someone registers on one machine but confirms on another. The cookie won't be there so you won't get instant credit but it is supposed to get updated in a batch.

    I did one test with an odd tracking code and it seemed to work.

    So, I wouldn't judge fully until you see an entire month get locked.

    I wish there was a report that would tell you what WAS extended but now accepted.

    For April my reversals weren't any worse than before on a percentage basis. Will hold breath for May.
