    It looks like something is messed up. The last transaction that just came in was from buycostumes.com and showed a zero amt for the sale?????

    Hopefully your sales are just on backlog or something WTG

    The zero dollar sale is something that's happened to me before with Buy Costumes. I don't remember the AM's explanation but she did correct the problem. It's a BC problem apparently, not a CJ problem. Send her an email and I'm sure she'll straighten it out for you.

    when i was starting out and had only 10% or less of my current traffic, sales occur everyday, even on holidays.

    now with a lot greater traffic, not even one single sale made it through today.


    i remember one merchant saying that i'm one of their top affiliates, and yet i don't see any sales. can it be that according to their reports, i have sales, but according to my reports, i have none? so where did my sales go?

    CJ reporting works. It's not real time, it's not fast, I don't like the reports but sales are coming.
    Blame them for what you want but not for that.
    There's may be specific problems with merchants... traffic...

    Works great, i love having other people's sales show up in my account.

    edited to add:

    That CJ admitted a problem with HSN, when i was having problems with them. Those past threads where i was complaining about sales not turning into commissions. Apparently i was having sales show up in my account that weren't mine, at least that's what they told me. They were actually theirs and were being incorrectly flagged. Just so happens i had an HSN sale that i posted about here showing up in my account with an SID that wasn't mine.

    Packy I had the same thing happen to me last week. I downloaded the report in Excel format and sent it to the Affiliate Manager at BuyCostumes.com. She stepped up to the plate and sorted it out for me the same day. Great affiliate support as always from this merchant.

    About 75% of my own test purchases do not show up.

    sales from links that i'm sure i didn't make are showing up.

    so i don't know where you are getting that cj reporting works.

    it's messed up as heck.

    I have yet to see a test purchase not track, but I haven't tested that many, and none since the upgrade. I just have to believe that we'd see far more people in here (with histories of making thousands or tens of thousands a month) complaining, unless we're following the conspiracy theory about CJ weeding out the non-performers. I'd contact the merchants in the case of your test purchases and figure out if it's them that you need to drop.

    Rea and Grumpy Thanks I ended up calling her today and within an hour or so she straightened it up for me. I had a couple of other questions for her which she took care of and was indeed a very nice person.

    more...

    account balance jumping up and down for no discernable reason.

    reports oftentimes load very very very slowly, if at all.

    blackouts and spurts patterns that are getting worse.


    and let me repeat that again, sales from links with SID not your own.

    I suspect something is wrong today, my sales are down by more than 1000 transactions very uncommon.

    Huge sales yesterday and nice commission.....and it all disappeared today. No reversals or anything.....it just vanished without a trace!

    The report was weird to begin with anyway and showed commissions owing -from July 7th up till now. I just can't make heads or tails of any of it anymore and am seriously thinking about ditching the network until I see the aff's here posting that all is well.

    Is there any way to convince merchants to move to another network (like SaS)?
    Never argue with an idiot.
    The person watching, may not be able to tell the difference!

    My sales in CJ absolutely stunk yesterday, but they were bad everywhere else as well, so it's hard to make much of a conclusion.

    The few test purchases I've made from time to time have all shown up, this was before the update though.

    She certainly is nice and bends over backwards for affiliates. I told her that last Halloween there was a tracking problem which was confirmed and sorted out by the Affiliate Manager at that time. She made a point of contacting somebody at CJ to make sure that tracking is 100% and even sent me a copy of the email she received from her contact at CJ. So, hopefully, with her on our side we should have a bumper Halloween this year!

    It had better be a delay issue.

    I see weird things. I have so many sites yet it seems, these 2 days, that only 1 site reports transactions in a single day. today's site is different from yesterday's or the day before.

    Like only 1 site tracks at a time.
