    Anyone notice the UK sites are highest EPC?
    I was just looking over the top three month EPC merchants at CJ and 7 of the top 8 are all UK. Are they just that much better performers or is it something to do with the exchange rate or something entirely different?

    Is it a simple matter of that market being less "tapped"? I noticed the same thing, and made that assumption...

    I suspect it's CJ not converting the ££ to $$ conversion rate properly when it calculates the EPC.

    I get paid in ££ and my account shows ££, for months my 7 day and 3 month EPC's have been about twice what my daily EPC's are - it doesn't catche up like you'd expect. It never happened like this when I was paid in $$.

    How this happens I can't guess, as £1 is worth more than $1 - I'd expect it to be the other way round.

    I'd put money on the way it's calculated and exchange rates rather than anything to do with UK programmes converting better. I have a lot of US and UK merchants and there's no particular distinction in conversion rates other than those you get between different merchants anyhow.

    Hmmm. Interesting. At least at ABW, when I'm wrong, I usually take something awy from it...
