    Arrow CJ is going to flip half a billion transactions today
    Is that accurate? My latest sale ID is 499392703. I had two come up this morning only 3 minutes apart but there were 3200 numbers separating them! They do 1000 transactions a minute on a Monday morning? Wow.

    Hopefully they'll all get credited to the referring affiliate.

    No. First of all it's not reasonable to expect that their sales are uniform throughout the day. Second, transactions are posted within a short time window, typically only a few minutes out of each hour. Those postings represent the previous hour's worth of transactions. We're not talking about real time here.

    So it's more like they POST 1,000/minute and only for a few minutes out of an hour, at that.

    Nope, that wasn't the posting time, it was the event date that was 3 minutes apart. It looks like a double click and one will get reversed, but they were two separate events, 3 minutes apart, with 3200 IDs between them. I'm sure it was possibly the busiest time of the day on the busiest day of the week so that isn't an hourly average, but still...

    Ah yea I had another one come in 6 minutes after that and it has 2500 IDs between it, so I'm sure the average is probably more like 50 to 100/min accounting for timezones and weekends.



    ps I'm glad people took the bait on the tracking jokes

    Yep and when you consider that MAYBE HALF of those bananas were credited to the appropriate affiliate, well, it either makes you smile or pisses you off because 100% of those transactions should have gone to the appropriate partner. Either way, CJ got it's cut so hooray for CJ and the apparent comfort of consumers to buy online ... Keep at it, guys. This business can only get better.
    Peace,

    It looks like they post about 200 transactions per minute. When I look at my first and last transaction for this month, and divide by the number of minutes so far this month, it's around 200.

    Half a billion should be sometime later this evening.

    200 txns/minute * $7 = $1400 per minute (if $7 is an average commission)
    $1400 * .30 = $420 per minute CJ's part.

    1440 minutes per day * $420 per minute = CJ making $604,800 per day in commission.

    $604,800 * 365 = $220,752,000 commission per year.

    This is in addition to startup fees etc.

    That is righteous bucks.

    One would think they would be able to process payments at report transactions simultaneously with that kind of revenue.


    I wonder what the affiliate with the 500,000,000th txn gets.....let's start a rumor.

    Looks like it will happen around 5 or 6 am PST this morning.

    If I win I'm going to demand a 6th bar.
