    Commission Junction CJ Reporting
    CJ Reporting seems to come and go without much notification from them. Love CJ, but please get your act together with delayed reporting. We don't want to intentionally do less promotion because we think we aren't getting the sales we really are. Use thread for good reporting experiences too...

    Slow last few days
    Reporting has been slow (okay) but also very spotty (not okay) last few days. Like there're dead spots with no sales at all. An update from them would be nice.

    cj.com computer down
    cj uses 1 dell 2850 poweredge server to do all their sale tracking. I know one time the battery backup went out and nothing was tracked for an entire night until someone got in the next morning. Another time A/R was running a huge report on the server and overloaded it and the reports wouldnt work.

    just kidding, i know nothing about how cj operates but i did stay at a holiday inn last night!

    Guys, I have good news to report. I just saved 15% on my car insurance by switching to Geico!

    Sales slow
    Does anyone seem to have slower sales after they have a reporting delay? Quite a coincidence. One things are back after about 12 hours, things seem okay.

    I did 2 small test purchases last night with CJ.
    EssentialApparel tracked but Silkies did not.

    I don't think there's anything wrong with CJ tracking/reporting.

    test orders..
    How do you do a test order? The only thing I know is placing a real order for something really, really inexpensive. Thanks.

    A test order is buying something through your affiliate link to see if it tracks.

    Yeah, I figured that part out. I just don't want to pay for something to do a test.

    Wow, another choppy day
    Sales are choppy again today for me. Anyone else? Yesterday was good, but today feels like this past weekend.

    Any suggestions for CJ to keep us better updated on what in the world is going on with their reporting. Do you think they are shooting themselves in the foot or benefitting from this? I can't imagine.

    I'm not seeing any reporting delay today - but I am seeing much fewer sales than usual, as though sales had been omitted.

    You need to get used to the idea that you will not have consistent sales in affiliate marketing. Try doing some test purchases if you're concerned about a certain merchant, but CJ is rarely directly at fault for tracking issues (shady and/or incompetent merchants are typically the culprit - after all the BHO and other parasitic issues don't involve tracking).

    Can't even get in
    Is there a way to see that we are still being tracked? Links seem to work.
