CJ payments delayed...

    I have never seen anything more unprofessional than the mess CJ has created with their last update... Obviously, this wasn't tested prior to release and it seems that they are having payment problems... The only reasons there are for payments being delayed is if they actually broke something that helps them in their payments or if they are purposely stalling due to cash flow problems.

    I know that their payment collection from advertisers is working as before..

    And income is still down 50% since before their downgrade. Make a test purchase and you will see that reporting is still way off. In this type of business realtime stats are the only thing that gives us confidence in the system. Without this, they could be stealing us blind.

    Anyways, I made a few test purchases with SID's so that I can track them to see if they eventually credit these transactions.

    I doubt CJ is having cash flow problems. I think they are very solid. My guess is the reports are such a mess THEY can't even get the right numbers out.

    I couldn't log in since 5pm this afternoon...and the commission amount has been up and down in the past few days. Not exactly know if CJ is trying to adjust the number, or it is simply because the sales recording system doesn't function right.:confused:

    I wonder if the sales that we generate will be accounted for during this instability time.

    Just my luck, I joined CJ last Thursday :p Hopefully they're using all their server resources to track clicks and sales instead of running reports.

    I bet the problem is being compounded by excessive account checking and report running by publishers wondering "where's my mullah?!".

    The tracking and reporting servers are separate. At least that's always what they say everytime there is a reporting server upgrade and everything goes haywire. "Tracking has not been affected!" :p

    Yes, they are being tracking and accounted for completely.

    I am not sure if they track sales properly. My slaes on Saturday and Sunday are dramaticlly less (only made 20% as my average daily sales). Maybe it is just a coincidence.

    I think that sales aren't being reported correctly right now, but I'm not sure. Is that what other people understand? The acct manager updates they're giving on don't seem very specific as to what the problem entails.

    I hope that's the case, I'm a new member and sending them a lot of clicks, but very few sales reported. I think someone said on another thread that sales and clicks are tracked on different servers.

    It's a bit disconcerting though. The problems I have seen are the fluctuations in the reporting. I was under the impression I made X and the payment was Y. I've seen money come in and then disappear, then come back, then disappear. My earnings are pretty consistent so it makes you wonder. I'm hanging in there anyway. Payments were only delayed about 4-5 days so it was not that bad. The reporting discrepencies however are a little scary, and confusing. Hopefully everything settles down.

    No. My current balance is still shown as it is.
    But the payment was not sent.
    I sent mails and the question status is still unresolved!!
