    Do Reversed Test Transactions = Reversals?
    Brian,

    Are test transactions placed by merchants on affiliates' request, and then, of course, reversed effecting the reversals ratio reported as "info on the program"? Looks like it... If it really is so, it is then diminishing the program's credibility/attractiveness instead of increasing it...

    Geno your program won't suffer from some occassional test purchases as you address conversion issues. Others at SAS require Brian do some research as they are not reporting sales.... Quit Yes 0.00 0.00 March/April clicks=1072 0.00 % 0.00 % $0.00 $0.00 Bonsai Boy of New York Online Contact Get Links

    That added to 3600 CJ physical targeted clicks with ZERO sales makes one wonder if anything inb their cart reports affiliate sales. They showed a negative EPC last month and quickly padded some sales in there to fudge the EPC figures. 5 e-mails to this merchant received ZERO response, so something is amiss.

    Is there a void feature that might not be counted as a reversal?

    Thanks, Mike. Do other affiliates think so as well?

    From what I see, that Reversals Percentage is an important factor for an affiliate that is considering joining an affiliate program [especially since they don't know anything on the nature of the reversals reported]...

    If a just a couple of reversed transactions is enough to make a noticeable impact, then there are bigger things to be concerned about than that.

    I see nothing in reversals for either of your programs, Geno. I don't think anyone is going to avoid you for a few reversals, but Brian might have a solution for you.
