    I see transactions posted every hour, with the normal 1-2 hour delay between transaction date and posting date. If anything, it's a merchant-specific problem.

    Not looking good here either leeann. Doing well with SAS but CJ has just been dead. Could just be one of those off days for me.

    I'm still not seeing any delays. My most recent transaction posted 9 minutes ago with an event date within the past 2 hours.

    To be honest, although it looks like tracking is fine, the last couple of days have been pretty slow, but only with CJ. Other networks are normal right now.

    I know if I run another test sale at CJ, to try and catch a problem, it'll go through as it did the last 6 times I've tried it..

    I think only in my dreams would my sales look like Michael or TrustNo1 lol but I have an additional $1 added to my account today. lol It was for a sign up at a survey site, though. Not sure when it actually happened. I get a big smile if I log into any of them in the morning and there's been a sale posted....don't think I'd know what to do with myself it they started coming in on the hour

    TrustNo1 -what does a batch merchant mean? Guessing maybe if merchants tell them about a bunch of sales maybe instead of just one at a time being recorded maybe?

    It's a merchant that sends transactions to CJ on their own choosing. They might upload sales once a week, or once every other day, just whenever they want while other merchants are close to real time reporting. Normally new sales are posting on the hour within a few minutes of every hour. If you look at the posting date it's usually :00 :01 :02. I've seen some like above and they're usually batch merchant or ebay.

    Actaully checking i see some other merchant sales that are posting past the half hour mark. I thought it was once an hour, I guess it might be twice.

    Thank you very much for the explanation. I had no idea that's how they were posted.

    It's usually just on the hour, but sometimes their are transactions posted on the half hour (and other odd times). Usually those are batch transactions.

    Sales are slow for me (that's normal for my type of sites) - I put it down to summer, soccer World Cup (the last time the Olympics were on it was really slow as well).
