    Anyone had any luck with Kiyonna Klothing?

    I had


    567 hits this month
    1145 hits so far
    one sale
    one cent commission.

    I asked them about the one cent commission but until now, still no reply.

    They are selling plus size clothing. I'm sure their clothes cost more than $1 each, so how can the commission be only one cent?

    Anyone used them before?

    The 1 cent commission is just a marker to indicate you've made a sale. They are incredibly slow at updating this, but at some point you will see that 1 cent voided and the real commission for your sale. I think they do this because they manually update sales info. Brian can probably tell you.

    They don't convert very well, but no sites in the formal/evening wear categories do. Lots of lookie loos but very few sales.

    I was wondering the same thing too

    I've had 3 1cent leads for 180 clicks or so and was going to pull them thinking all I was going to end up with was 3 cents...just as well I checked in

    Yes, they are indeed one of the few last remaining leftovers of the "manual commission" updating....Kiyonna in particular tends to fall behind a little, despite my constant "pushes" and notices that she is risking the loss of quality affiliates....however, she does always update the sales...

    ill check in with her today, looks like the last posted transaction was on 1/21, so about a month behind...

    historically, for those wondering...and this is a very rough estimate from my looking over the numbers, the site converts at 1 sale per 180 clicks or so...avg. commission in the $12-15 range...

    Thanks,

    I would suggest "temporarily offline" status for merchants who do not pay on time. This would wake some of them up. The ones who don't respond? Well, those are the ones you don't need around. Better to give them the boot now than get screwqed by them later.

    Does anyone know how much longer it takes before the 1 cents turn into magical dollars?

    Seems to be totally random, as far as I can tell.

    Nah, in roulette there is always a 50/50 chance of winning (red v black).

    Actually the odds aren't quite 50/50 in roulette... don't forget 0 and 00. The house has to make their dime ya know.

    For some reason, they updated sales today for march, but there is a large gap between march, and the last posted transaction of jan 21....

    So...im going to call her in the morning and see what we can do to catch up....

    If anyone has transactions prior to Jan 21, please let me know asap so I can fix them tomorrow as well.

    Thanks,

    Brian,

    Can we have an update on this. My own transactions weren't updated on Mar 13 and nor, if memory serves, were they updated on Jan 21. I did send you an email, but I guess you're probably busy.

    I'm still looking at cents too.

    I've pulled most of their links until I get some idea of how they operate....right now it's very sketchy

    markymark,

    I know...and I have your email with the sales in the past that were not updated...I've spoken with them a few times since then, but it doesn't appear that they have updated them yet - I will call her again today and let you know whatsup.

    By the way, as a general note, occasionally, with the "Marker" merchants that display the 1 cent or 1 dollar commissions and then edit later - if an order failed/sent back/etc.. they will often leave the marker commission as opposed to voiding it - I don't know why, but it often happens....

    Thanks,

    I like the offerings of Kiyonna, Plus Shop, etc. but I'm hesitant to sign up because they have affiliate banners all over their sites. That's just a real turn off to me - I send them the visitor, but they get the affiliate commission? Uh, no.

    Unless of course, the conversion ratio is pretty close to that of other similar sites. Then, it wouldn't bother me at all.

    If you've been with them a while, have you noticed a difference between their sales and sales of other similar sites or does it seem to be a pretty similar conversion ratio?

    Thanks,
    Kip

    As am I, but I seem to have only one transaction confirmed or is it all lumped in together ?

    I've not been here for that long - so I missed this Kiyonna discussion, but I'm still showing a 1 cent lead from January 19. I'd love to know what it is...

    besides not very encouraging.
