    Having you ever received a check? and when you login, at the very top, what does it say after balance? Not sure exactly what you're trying to ask.

    If you are asking if the EPC of 0.29 is an earning it is not. It is just a way of looking at your performance or effectiveness. Your earnings for June was $259.23. To get the EPC divide commissions by number of clicks and multiply by 100. Again EPC is not earnings but a statistic.

    Hope this helps.

    i think you are saying that it looks like a statistical anomaly? your number of clicks are high but the conversions are all over the place...just does not look very static. id keep an eye on it and if it keeps returning null $ over a period of time then something is really wrong....see if they can fix it or pull the plug.

    When i first joined CJ , and this was the first affiliate network I joined, I added some of their links and saw some $$$ in the EPC field

    This was quite misleading to me as a newbie.

    I thought all the money that's being displayed in the EPC is what's going to be paid to me.

    Then after reading CJ's tutorials and the help section, I realized what EPC was.

    Writing to CJs customer service also helped in understanding some of these things.

    Now, it's quite clear that I only earn when I send a lead or make a sale, and I earn nothing from just clicks and impressions.

    I think this is what stefanantonius is going through - his newbie moments

    Nothing wrong with CJ , it's just how it works.

    I think CJ should hide the EPC and other fields that show $$$ from newbies, until they make their first sale/ lead - this will help in avoiding all confusions and the feeling of being misled.

    I don't think they will delete the $$$,

    I think EPC and EPM is what the merchant sees, and it allows you to see what the merchant is looking at.

    I like the fact that they give us as much information as possible. Don't let the epc/epm bother you.

    Take your time, go through the CJ tutorials - theres a lot of good informative stuff there.

    Happy Aff Marketing !!!

    I think stef meant to drop the $$$ signs... somehow that caused the confusion (possibly). But these measurements have units - like speed could be measured in units as miles per hour, or furlongs per fortnight - and EPC/EPM just happen to be $$$ per clicks or imps, so using the $ sign is correct, but not to indicate payment.

    Oh ok...

    I had the same confusion as stef because, I'm new to Marketing and Affiliate Marketing, didn't know what those terms epc/epm stand for and when a newbie sees $$$ in their account profile they tend to natrually assume that it's something they've earned and they expect to get paid.

    Just makes us frustrated and feels like the thing doesn't work.

    It is in CJ's best interest to do something about it, if they want to keep a newbie from getting discouraged.

    I know they've done a very good job in providing us with a tutorial which explains the EPC/EPM etc, but a newbie in their first month at least wont look at the tutorial, the first thing they start with is, adding links.
