    Anyone getting conversions with them? I have some bids on my page, so I'm not too happy not seeing any conversions in over 200 clicks. Cameras are a bit high ticket, so I'm going to give it some more time, but I wanted to ask here what anyone else has experienced with them.

    TIA,
    webmistress

    Just joined a week ago and haven't sent enough traffic to tell, but the stats check out nicely and the product links are good.

    Good merchant.

    My experience is that 1 sale in 50 to 75 click thrus is the norm for electronics.

    So if you are not there yet with them, then adjust your strategy.

    I like them too.

    I haven't sent them a tremendous amount of traffic yet, but I am getting sales and they seem to convert fairly well. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks everyone! I guess it's time to check my page and see what's going on. Withdrew some not-so-shopping keywords from bids yesterday. This place is the greatest.

    I had done pretty well with them for a few months and then noticed I was doing poorly with them in NOvember. I checked the banner I was using and saw EPC had dropped a lot on that banner or it wasn't tracking properly.

    I changed it and have made a few sales again.
    I really think we need a forum specifically on which banners are not tracking for merchants on a weekly basis. I am not sure if this is done deliberately at times or is accidental but I often see a good pulling banner suddenly goes dead a few weeks later and the EPC has plummetted. It is very time consuming to keep checking the EPCs on banners for merchants at CJ but without that I never would have seen that IDT calling cards were all pulling 0 EPC (after being 123.00 a month!)

    Confusing how a active banner that is tracking clicks could ever be selectively turned off at the shopping cart tag. That tag is generic to all links regardless of banner/offer ID#. Might only apply to limited time offers ( ie free freight 25.00 off etc) on special landing pages that expire. Personally I never put up seasonal or special offers that don't automatically rotate to next special. Of course they all might not track like a lot of those I just cut and paste from merchant e-mails. I no longer trust those to be properly coded.

    Mike,

    Are you saying that if one link or banner is tracking than all of them are? I haven't found that to be true. I know with IDT some of them definitely track and others say 0 EPC. These aren't holiday specials but
    just regular banners.
