    My traffic is the same, amount of impressions/clicks is right around the same as well, but eBay is hardly making me any money. Anyone else experiencing this? Maybe they are having issues with reporting, but I'm at a loss.

    I have never had much luck as an eBay affiliate. Kind fo like Amazon. I think it is really hard to make good money from those programs.

    Im having the exact same problems and I can't find help anywhere either. My sales have plummeted. Last Month at this time I was setting at about $450 in sales and signups....now that I switched to ebay on the 1st....I'm at $55

    Something is seriously wrong and there is no help available....I dont know what to do,

    Are you guys using Adwords to promote your offers or is your traffic coming from organic search?

    I'm wondering how targeted your eBay promotions are if conversions are falling off so much. If so many people are having issues with eBay...I guess something has changed on there end? :confused:

    I've earned the grand total of 90p so far and just two clicks out of the 200 or so have converted. I didn't change all my links straight away and I still have one or two with cj. Nevertheless the performance with ebay is well down on what I expected. cj on the other hand is performing much better and I've already earned as much in 13 days as would have expected in a month.

    Can somebody post something positive? I read before that some are making more now since they switched to EPN. I have just started a new store with them and reading these discouraging posts is.... well, discouraging.

    Somebody who has switched and is making just as much as he/she did with CJ, can you post something positive here? :)

    Although I myself said before I joined EPN that now ebay is going to screw everyone up. I guess I have to eat my own words.

    It isn't just a thread for moaning. We're just trying to find out if something is actually wrong with ebay's tracking system. If your sales suddenly plummet you want to know why.

    I understand. I am just wondering if the reason that the earnings have gone down simply because the new data is still being aggregated by EPN's new accounts and in a two week time everything will get back to normal.

    As many or more clicks than I was getting on CJ, less sales.
