    I thought since we no longer can get this info on our own, we should post our worst reversers here, along with their EPC...
    My all time reverser is:

    Lifestyle Fascination
    You would never be able to tell this by their EPC:
    3 month EPC $9.04
    7 day EPC $13.08

    They consistently revese 1/2 of transactions per month...by far more than any of my other merchants at CJ! I am slowly but surely replacing their product links with other more reliable merchants.

    Yep, me too. They used to be one of my top performers, but since right before Christmas they have been my worst reverser of sales transactions.

    The other on my sheet list is ringo leather. They have reversed all of what few sales I have made for them. I usually get over 20 dollars in commission from sales through them, until it gets whacked.

    Ebay is the most notorious reverser, and I'm sure has the highest number of customer complaints of any merchant on the net.

    If other merchants are now going to loot affiliates because of the now non-existent reversal data, they've got something coming to them.

    I for one... say, it is pure sport to target a dishonest merchant's whole product catalog and then direct visitors to their competitors.

    Just got a $28.00 commission from shoplifestyle (Life Style Fascination). I bet it gets reversed!

    Haiko should give out free banners every month for those affiliate enabled merchants who post and prove they had NO reversals in the prior month. The ABW bonus plan.

    the biggest reversers; Powweb, Ipowerweb, and Ebay! Powweb's reason for reversal on every sale, "other"! WTF? I email them requesting a reason other then "other", I get no response. Ipowerweb, says existing customer, according to their explanation, a person signed up once, his cc was rejected, tried again, cc rejected, tried a third time, success! This to me looks like one transaction, but to Ipowerweb, it's 3, so they gave me commission for the third sign-up, which had a succesful cc transaction, only to reverse it because they consider him a member already for the first non-successful attempt, because his info was in the database already! WTF! I didn't get commission for the first attempt, but, I'm penalized because the cc didn't go through. This, in my book, would not count as a user, because the cc wasn't charged, but not in Ipowerwebs!

    How about the most notorious extenders? Tracfone extends every sale I get for them! They pay in the second month, but, I have to wait an extra 30 days to get my money from them?

    Zappo's and eBay here.

    After months of costly EBay reversals at CJ, I got fed up and switched my EBay links out to "another network". Kerching -- Not a reversal since. Sorry CJ - but I've gotta feed my kids.

    With my best,

    As for eBay, there is a difference on how Befree and CJ report their eBay stats:

    CJ reports all leads (even those that don't qualify, ie. no bids placed), whereas Befree reports only qualifying leads.

    This means that @CJ you see both leads that qualify (Accepted), and those that don't (Extended-Reversed), whereas @Befree, you see only Accepted leads.

    Dare I say in public

    For every 2 orders placed - 1 always gets reversed.
    Roughly 40-50%

    I added eBay from Befree just a couple of days ago. 2 leads (nickel each) showed up. But no $5 leads yet. I thought $5 shows up only when they bid (means nickel leads). How can nickels show up, but not $5 leads? Did I misunderstand anything?

    From what I understand - the nickel a lead is for a bid placed from your link(s). The $5 a lead is for new eBay users who've successfully completed an auction.

    nickelodeon.com tops my list.

    I should have read here about GSI's track record before putting the link up...

    Scott the GSI group of merchants top both lists. Non-converting merchants & reversing merchants. Soon they won't be able to even attract popups from the BHO parasites and then their game is over.

    Online sports, online sports, online sports!!!

    They consistently have over 60% reversals and it is not some sort of skewed, inaccurate figure like CJ spindoctors would have you believe. In March they reversed $35,377 of my total sales and gave me credit for $23,889. That is 60% reversals right on the nose.

    I have all-ink.com in my list.

    This month they reversed all my March sales. I sent them two messages via CJ mail with no response. I sent an email direct to them and got a way around auto responder.

    Don’t ask why the ball doesn’t come.
