    Sorry to open this topic again.

    Merchants closed the shop from 10:16 PST to 19:04 PST. March Madness still on the sky?

    I haven't called CJ in a long, long time but it's time to. No sales here since 3/1 early morning. Going on almost 900 clicks with no sales. This really sucks and I'm with you IRS. I hate to keep complaining about this but something is messed up I'm totally confused as to what is going on right now and it's frustrating me Big time

    Weird. Today was my best day this year, which is suprising after 2 of my worst CJ weeks ever. There might still be some more shoes.com type of problems, still some problems with the mail it seems. Don't know whats up.

    Trust.... I happen to be in your same boat today. Unfortunately, my biggest sales today are with merchants who have historically reversed every one of their sales.

    More and more I am starting to think...or have been thinking for some time now that different publishers (yuck)-affiliates are on different servers and that different things are going on with those servers on any given day.

    It would be very easy to just write off these coincidences to "luck" but I don't buy it. I have many members of my family who have their own individual businesses and they all use CJ merchants, just like me. There are many days where my dad or brother will tell me that they are having a 'record' day and yet my stats are showing that I'm having a normal number of click-throughs but no sales. Then the opposite happens and my other family members are the ones that can't believe the numbers.

    Also, like others have mentioned here recently, I have had things definately change after "upgrades" .... After this latest upgrade I have noticed sales coming in from merchants that have not sent me sales for months or years.... It's almost like they finally fixed one of the sales reporting switches or something.

    I have always said that there IS something wrong with CJ reporting... Over these last few days I have realized that this is absolutely true... or, if it has been fixed, was true.

    If we don't get some kool rules ourselves...... pronto........ then we'll just be bogus too.. ~Jeff Spicoli~

    Thanks DaPackster and TrustNo1®. I still got some sales today, half of my daily average in terms of # sales. From 21 Feb until yesterday I booked normal sales. My 7-day EPCs even never hurt over a year, stick around $20. The 9 hours day time lag today has brought me a question whether it was only merely my bad luck

    I don't think so, but I don't work for them and I'm not an expert.
    All I can say is that most of my sales at CJ are coming from different pages and sites than a few weeks ago. These pages are 2 or 3 years old and some have not been updated for months.
    Without this new traffic from old web sites, my sales would have been much less.

    when a merchant is listed as 'on-line' instead of batch, i don't think that really means sales are tracked in real time

    my statistics would lead me to believe that there is the ability to manually post sales into the 'on-line' system

    if that is not the case, then the pid stuff is faulty

    CJ's reporting is working fine! The eBay reversals are coming through without any trouble whatsoever!

    They're in black, with parenthesis around them to blend in with the few sales that somehow manage to trickle through...

    I fear we're in for another headache when CJ has to "update" back to the red reversals! Anyone want to bet on how long they'll be down this time?

    @ Trust: Just be glad you're getting the "moon shot" and not the "middle finger salute"!

    Wow, Trust, someone has some color in their cheeks! LOL

    You know, not that I want any reversals, but if I had some I would at least know there was some activity in my CJ account today.

    Yes, sales are not caught up still with yesterday being an all time low, with the exception of batched sales form shoes.com, due to the reporting error from last month...so this didn't actually count!
