    This probably sounds logical but might be news for some.

    If you go to eBay and register and then come across a website that uses the Editor Kit but not with an affiliate ID, your registration, ACRU and bid will be reversed.

    Why?

    If you choose the editor kit without an affiliate code it uses. . . . (drum roll please)

    MEDIAPLEX LINK!

    That's right boys and girls. You loose your commision because someone clicked on an editor kit that is unattached to an affiliate.

    Why would someone use an editor kit without an affiliate ID?

    This is done by sellers and to show live info about an eBay storefront. Sellers are not allowed to use their affiliate code to link to their own auctions.

    All CJ ebay links go through mediaplex, after they've been through qksrv.net

    mediaplex is the master tracking system for eBay.

    If you come directly to eBay through mediaplex link (direct link) it cancels out the affiliate referal and no-one ends up getting credit for the transaction.
