    They did WHAT?!

    I think that'd have to be a glitch. Raise Cain with CJ!

    You should probably open a ticket at CJ about this, as that just doesn't seem right. I think eBay is having some serious problems with the recent changes, and I can verify that there is a tracking problem with bids going back to December.

    PLEASE trace this back. You shouldn't loose the $5 unless you first had a registration go active. I don't think it's possible to reverse a transaction that wasn't there.

    Maybe do a report for the entire month on link 9254938 to see if you can find a matching Active Registration.

    The entire Ebay situation is completely unacceptable!!!!

    We have a highly, highly targeted niche site, and through the CJ reports it is clear that the majority of registrations from our site are immediately followed by bids. So why should someone else get credit for bids placed by users we sent to Ebay?

    Furthermore, what exactly is their rationale behind this? Last cookie set should get the credit...

    Todd: If you happen to read this thread, you really should address this situation or have someone from Ebay do so!! I don't think having all the abw Ebay affiliates drop the program is beneficual to CJ's bottomline.

    Let's see how many registrations and bids Ebay gets when CJ affiliates refuse to link to them. I hope they'll be happy depending on MSN or whoever else they are giving our commissions to...

    ATKOgirl, I'm with you. This situation is totally unacceptable. Ebay needs to send out an email admitting that the tracking is totally screwed up at this point.

    This program was very profitable at one time. Now is has degenerated to the point where it really isn't worth having their links on my site. If the tracking isn't fixed soon, I'll be done with them, also.

    Take a look at the click date of the transactions being reversed.

    I had a registration reversed yesterday from 2/7. Click date was 1/19. That means that between 1/19 and 2/7, this person must have been cookied by another partner, probably MSN. MSN can't wipe out the CJ cookie, so CJ allows eBay to tell them that this commission has already been paid to someone else.

    CJ shouldn't allow stuff like this to happen because it has no control over how that other cookie was set. For all we know, eBay might be telling that other partner that their cookie was invalid because the CJ cookie was set. CJ is no longer the independent third party, it is the gullible dupe here.

    I noticed something similar, until I realized that they sent through the same "Registration" twice. So my info went like this:

    1) Registration ($0)
    2) Active Registration ($5)
    3) Registration (same order ID, same SID) $0
    4) Reversal of Active Registration (looked like #3, but was really for #2).

    Ralph,

    The "de-duping" are being uploaded in batches. Apparntly this is being done by a third party company.

    Also, my "research" is pointing more to CJ verus CJ and not the mediaplex cookie like I originally suspected. I haven't seen a public verification on this but I have good sources.

    Most likely this is some inderect popup campaign which must be working considering what they are paying on Burst for the eBay stuff.

    Holy [CENSORED]! In the last day I just got hammered for 25% of my monthly revenue in reversals.

    My Ebay links are highly-targeted deep links, no banners whatsoever.

    What the hell is going on here????
