    6 days - no sales
    Going on day 6 with no sales/leads. It has never gone this long. The traffic still seems to be there. Wondering if something is up or is this just a dry period.

    I am not a CJ heavy hitter but I get $200-$400 per month in commissions consistently.

    Besides the reporting delay a few days ago, haven't seen any problems. Was a little slow for me at the beginning of this month but last few days have been cranking.

    30 seconds after posting (literally) I got a $30 commission. I was just checking back on a test purchase I made.

    Packy termed the phrase "Merchant Coincidences" After posting about bad sales, sales show up Was that your test purchase that showed up or another purchase?

    I've gotten used to the fact that it's nearly impossible to determine why my sales are slow for any particular amount of time. I think that's due in part to the fact that I try to keep myself busy with new projects whenever time allows, so I'm not concentrating too much on the issue.

    Like MIchael mentioned in a previous thread, if you don't have a high enough volume of sales, then you're likely to see all kinds of fluctuations. It's enough to drive a man crazy..

    As far as testing, I've done everything to try and track down these supposed problems, such as throwing in test purchases (even though this particular merchant is pretty reputable), but they always came through fine.

    Anyway, until I can build the traffic/sales up more, I've resorted to working and concentrating on other projects whenever something like this happens.

    My sales are generally OK.

    Sales of heavy winter coats are down right now though.

    Swimming pool supplies are up though.

    I go through these frustrating periods of dry spells where nothing gets sold. Last month the first three weeks I had some sales and then, everything stopped. This month - nothing. My sites are new and whatever traffic I get is through PPC and though the daily cost remains almost the same, the conversions across my sites took a nosedive. I does not seem logical that sales stop so suddenly.

    Sales have been slow but avg sales really high the last week or so, so it's kinds of evened out.
