    CJ Sales/reporting looking screwy today?
    Man i am just frustrated and fed up with CJ lately. I average 400-500 In COmmission daily from a few sites (this is an avg over the last 4 months so its consistent) Well my traffic is the same, yet today I am showing 65.00 and three sales and none for the afternoon or early evening (pst) I really think there is something up or going on at CJ. It is not just one merchant i run but all seem to come and go all at the same time!

    Yes, I was disappointed with the CJ.com sales today also - the small sales were there but the merchants with the most clicks registered zero sales. The clickthrough to sales ratio is way out of wack. I'm hoping that things will straighthen themselves out by tomorrow. You watch a baseline ratio of clickthroughs/sales day after day and then when today's stats don't fall into that ratio, you do begin to wonder. But we have seen this many times before and things return to normal.

    kco,

    have you all really seen this before where they straighten out over a couple days? that would be comforting to know...

    right now i have transactions coming in from about 5-6 hours ago...so it's definitely slow

    Wait a minute...You've been averaging $400 to $500 a day for over four months consistently and you are concerned the first day you make $65?

    Give it more than one day before you get frustrated. For one, it may not be CJ's fault. Perhaps it is something outside of CJ. I had an attack of spam one time that really slowed down my server. It could be something like that.

    I'm seeing very consistent commissions at CJ, but then again I have about 100 sites. When I had just a few I saw things like you are talking about. But when you spread out over 100 sites you just don't see those kinds of fluctuations any more. If you only have a few you are bound to see a bad day once in while.

    Hang in there. Give it a chance.

    7 days-- wow 100 sites...can i assume if they are all mini-sites very targeted toward certain products/svcs?

    i just started this affiliate stuff as a side thing and am overwhelmed by my first site...

    You're doing better than me. My last was 17:58 PST, posted 23:29 PST. There seems to be a really big lag time today.

    I should have said that was the posting time in my last post. They're starting to come in now, so there was a delay today. 6 hours. Last transaction coming in.

    2:30 PST and still no click reports available.

    Never used to take this long before. Maybe they tuck the server in for a nap at midnight nowadays.

    I noticed a message via CJ on the main page time stamp 3am PST. They say there are having tracking/posting issues and working on the problem.

    Is it just me, or does it seem like someone really screwed up something on Monday when they did an upgrade and now the boss is back fixing the problem at 3am PST? I can't remember a time when someone was working at 3am to fix something there. Usually, folks tend to screw something up and go home until the next morning around 10am.

    Something strange is going on right now. Let's hope they are right and there is a tracking backup to what's been going on.

    Yes, I think that is the first time I've seen something posted in the middle of the night. Thanks Cj!

    I'm starting to see some late transactions from yesterday.
    15-Feb-2005 23:12 PST 16-Feb-2005 04:44 PST. More than 5 hours delay, at that time it's usualy less than 1 hour.
    They should leave the message on their home page, I'm sure the backlog is not over

    CJ is back to their normal 1:30 delay in reporting.
    I've so many sales this morning with nearly the same event date, I'm wondering if some are not from yesterday.
