    No sales today
    Today I have absolutely no sales at all from CJ.

    Is reporting delayed or is something wrong?

    I do believe something is up at CJ also. I have had consistent sales with one particular merchant and starting about a week (or so) ago my sales are about 20-30% Off. The traffic has stayed the same and in some instances risen a little bit. I really think somethings wrong. Is anyone else noticing anything?

    Sales have been normal for me, but I did see a big gap in in reporing, from about 4am to Noon, CJ time.

    Also, CJ sent me my datafeed six times in a row. If they did that to everyone I'm sure their computer resources were really tied up today running all that.

    Sales are normal for me, in fact this month is turning out to be my best yet.

    Unhappy
    reversals came in right after my post, followed by batched orders. Net amount is negative.

    Sales are awful this month. January was great with 1 or 2 sales per day but then after Feb 1st they completely dried up for a couple merchants. I'm guessing people just aren't in a buying mood this month. Traffic is up.

    I noticed a considerable slowdown today as well. I am hoping it has something to do with their system. I am seeing about 25% of what I expected. Hopefully things get resolved by tomorrow morning.

    For those of you who have been with CJ for a while...

    does this happen every now and then...do you see sales catching up a day or so later?

    in my 1 1/2 months with them, i've never seen anything post later than the event day (except cookie sales) so i was just wondering...

    I've never seen anything appear outside a few hour window in over a year with CJ so either we just aren't making the sales or CJ loses these transactions forever. There was only one time where they didn't report transactions for half a day and they gave us an estimated reimbursement.

    Whew! I finally got a decent sale. I was starting to feel sad, but it's encouraging to finally see something more than a couple bucks appear on my account. It seems things are working, people just aren't buying. Hang in there guys, things will get better soon enough. Just keep improving the user experience on your websites and all will be fine

    Sales are rolling along ok, almost a 2hr lag, but coming in steady, thru 3 accounts, things look normal for me, traffic and sales correspond accordingly..

    Total crap here too. Wednesday was my worse day this year - pulling a single tiny sale (9-Feb-2005 06:36 PST). Just glad I had some contract work to do during the day so I could earn some actual REAL money.

    Sales are slow for me today too, so far I'm at $-3500.00 - a bit depressing

    I always notice a slowdown in reports on "witching day" the 10th. Hopefully we will see some catchup by this evening PST time. One can only hope........cause you can't seem to do much more, these days.

    Angry Sales picked up
    I think I may have figured out my mystery. I switched from regular to encrypted links. After posting on this thread i decided to run a test and switch back to standard links. Well long story short my sales have returned to the pre encrypted link levels. So much for encrypted links

    lucky, how did you encrypt your links? I just set mine up with a redirect script to count my clicks. It should be fine if you do that.

    Snib, i think he means the 'encrypt link' option when creating links manually through cj.

    I also tried encrypted links for a few days this month and got ZERO sales for those days. Given that I redirect anyway, I have gone back to readable links. Yikes. Be careful out there, people.

    I had a nearly record day.

    BUT.....

    ....My last sale was at 14:50 cj time, about seven hours ago. That is a bit strange for me. Sure hope my sales during that period are is some kind of buffer just waiting to be set free.

    What the heck kind of a reversal caused *that* deficit?! That'd be awful...

    I saw a strange and rare gap in sales from 14:50 yesterday until 23:00. Anyone else?

    Sure I saw a gap but it's not all that rare for me. I don't push CJ as much as I should.

    i have seen gaps the last couple days too...

    one question: "event date"--is that actually when the customer purchases online OR could it be whatever the merchant defines it to be?
    (e.g. moment of online purchase OR moment when credit card is approved OR when product is shipped...)

    any thoughts?
