    So, I was getting ready to write a pissy note about sending BabyUniverse close to 1,300 HIGHLY targeted visitors (people searching for SPECIFIC products) with no sales when I ran some more reports at reporting.net (btw, does anyone else find the names of the reports and what they're supposed to contain highly confusing?)...

    And found that I had over $2,600 in sales to them! Okay, just over $1,000 has been cancelled (not a shock, one order was close to $3,000). But over $1,500 still in sales.

    But when I run the revenue reports, it shows zip, nada, zilch. How is it I've sold over $1,500 dollars worth of merchandise, but nothing shows in the revenue reports???

    What is up with that? I've used reporting.net for other programs and never seen such a thing!

    Any thoughts before I fire off an epistle to the merchant?

    Oh, nevermind.

    Should have read the FAQs first. "Revenue or shipped sales will not be reflected in the reports until the order is shipped."

    Pardon my rant.

    Interestingly enough, I too was not getting anything from BabyUniverse and then all of a sudden a large amount showed up (all on one day?!), but also with about the same percentage of cancelled as you show.
    Mmmm..

    I suggest you call the company and ask for their affiliate program manager. Then ask that person to explain how their tracking works so it won't be such a mystery.

    Cedric:

    I noticed that Baby Universe has had their acclaim changed from OK to under review. I still have quite a few sales from January that have not been shipped.
    Maybe it's time to start looking for another merchant.

    Yeah, I know... the thing is, NOW, they're selling for me -- 7 sales in the past week. They do have special order products that take 6-8 weeks to ship... lol, think everyone is ordering those?

    I'm going to hang with them a bit longer and pray not to get the shaft.

    BabiesHeaven doesn't have the products I am featuring.

    Not to mention BabiesHeaven is on a minimum three month probation with me -- if they can keep their account stable/active for three months in a row, then and only then will I consider putting them on my site.

    Also, as a Canadian website, Baby Universe offers the babyuniverse.ca option for my Canadian shoppers so they can buy in Canadian dollars.
