    Crucial.com Doesn't Track
    So thursday a sale was made via a link on my site to Crucial.com the sale didn't track. So I tried a spyware free machine of mine and did a test purchase. (The machine is a ibook running tiger)

    As of this moment the test purchase hasn't tracked either. Crucial use to track though and imediatly.

    It's a batch merchant. I know the batches used to come through pretty quick, but when were they "immediate?"

    Batches have been really slow the last few days, too.

    I kind of remember a time when they did multiple batches per day... But they seem to have lost their zeal. Now they're showing daily batches, with the last one from some time on the 14th.

    Hopefully your sale will appear, and they haven't turned the Code off!

    Did you use a coupon with your order? I once placed a test purchase at Crucial using a coupon code, and the sale didnt track. It turns out that Crucial doesn't credit affiliates with sales when their customers use certain coupons codes.

    I did a test purchase within the past two weeks and it DID track but it wasn't batched for a few days after I ordered.

    I'm not defending CJ vs BeFree tracking here, but this delay (in my direct experience) is from Crucial. The up side is there are fewer reversals - hardly any for me.

    Unrelated to batching and posting delay, parasites do run amuck in this space.

    Maybe you cancelled your transaction and forgot to tell yourself...

    Imagine how much revenue we generate for others where we're not compensated in any way... keep it in mind next time you negotiate for a raise with a merchant. They are being paid either way (if it's parasites, return mistakes, liveperson / chat helpers taking the credit, and on and on).

    I recommend you contact the program manager at Crucial and discuss your concerns with him.
