I just had something happen I've never seen before. I logged in and my balance was almost $22 higher, so I hit today's stats to see where the sale was and no sale shown.
So I went to Activity details to check for a bonus or make-good payment or something - and I had a sale for one of my merchants. All the info was there and nothing looked unusual at all.
Except: that merchant is not showing up with any activity today at all in my Today's stats. The sale appeared to come from a click thru from a page and not a bookmarked page. How could the info be in one place and not the other?

Maybe the sale was made from a cookie and the click was days or weeks ago.
I have two sales showing a referral domain that is totally NOT MINE...lol. It is a merchant that I have not promoted in a year or more so I guess someone copied my links and forgot to change the ID. OOPS

Usually even the cookie'd sales show up in today's stats, but it's gotta be something like that.
Speaking of scrapers not changing IDs - one time I was doing the google thing on one of my domains and I saw an ad for a textbook that cost over $1000. Somebody had used my Amazon feed on our Linux books site to scrape a link and left my ID in it. I was hoping for a sale, but it never happened. darn.

BTW this is a merchant that I usually get some daily clicks on and the occasional sale - more lately because of some SEO I did on the pages. Just weird that it doesn't show up in my today's stats.
