    HSN $0.00 commissions
    Anybody been around the block with them and know what is up with this?

    The way their merchant profile is set up looks a bit dodgy.

    See the last post on the first page of http://forum.abestweb.com/showthread...ht=HSN+%240.00 and the ensuing ones on page 2, Maybe Toddaroo or Trusty could post a follow up here.

    Someone from CJ finally got back to be and basically said that a lot of the sales showing up for me were actually from HSN's other marketing efforts and they were being flagged as coming from publishers. Most of this was for Nov-Jan. Now everything is supposed to be working correctly and sales you get now will first show as $0 and later supposed to turn into commissions.

    I'd like to but those pics may not be suitable for a family-friendly site like this one.

    Todd might have some pics under his pillow; you could ask him. He's got a thing about hens.

    I don't suppose "HSN's own marketing efforts" are tagged with the same SID's that I use

    I've had four $0.00 commissions show up from HSN in the last two days and am going to keep a close eye on them. I just added the HSN CJ links back to my site (I had reverted to the Reporting.net links after the last screwup) and was curious if anyone had seen these $0.00 commissions turn into actual commissions?

    Takes awhile to change over to commissions, either 30 or 60 days, something like that. Could never figure it out. Maybe someone else knows. I'd rather the sales show as commissions and go thru any reversals later. Don't like the current setup.

    I never saw any of mine convert to real money. I dumped the feed because they had asked us to remove it because of issues - I've not bothered to put it back up and probably won't. I don't trust their method of reporting at cj.

    The spiel I got from an AAQ reply was that they have this odd reporting set up to accomodate their 30-day return period, as if CJ's system was not already tailored to that by default for all clients.

    Well, they do have positive EPC figures.

    All of the sales I've registered so far are tagged with my SID's though, so we'll see soon enough if there's any funny business going on.

    I have something showing up but the event dates are usually 00:00 midnight. If they're going to do it the way they're doing, which i don't like, then they should have the actual event date, would make things easier. Todd, do you know if anything can be done about that? Also under Generate Reports - Advanced Transaction Reports you can only run reports a month at a time. Can anything be done about that? Thanks Going to hunt down the sale.

    edited to add. The sale that showed up today as a commission occured on May 6th, so it looks to be 30 days for those $0 to turn into $$, unless people are seeing it differently.

    Well.....

    Reversals seem to be processed about 30 days after the sale.

    Non-reversed sales get locked at $0.00

    What a freakin waste of time and traffic.

    I have had sales with them and saw the $0.00 turn into real commish after 30 days, as someone else mentioned. I had several test purchases with them since before Xmas and all showed up after the alotted time.

    "I have had sales with them and saw the $0.00 turn into real commish after 30 days"

    Were they "locked" at $0.00 before they were changed?

    I have sales that are well over 30 days old that are "locked" at $0.00

    Had lots of sales with them, they always turned into cash after 30 days or so. Other than the 1-day cookie, they can be a good money maker.

    Has anybody been paid for May 2005 HSN sales?

    My sales from the first week of this month just got changed to dollar-value commissions, yet sales from May are still locked at $0.00
