    #1 content is good
    #2 traffic is good
    #3 The only number in your example "2.2 million 3% conversion" that matters it 3% which would be 15 sales for 500 not 0.
    #4 The point wasn't that my sale should be counted the point is they weren't counting any sales and that proves it.
    #5 nothing you said or anyone said has or can excuse blatant lies about restoring previous balance.

    CJ IS a Scam.
    You need to read my post carefully.
    They emailed me and promised to restore balance AND look into problem but did neither.
    Not complicated.
    They lied.

    @L7world I would suggest to keep track record of each and every sale with GA and other monitoring tools. Don't blindly believe in their sale's report. I have been the publisher for Commission Junction, Shareasale and many others for more than 2 year. If you go directly to their sale's report, you may missed out some point where you need to question it out.

    Some time advertisers and affiliate marketing provider like CJ cut your commission without any reason or missed out the payment. Due to large number of sale , most of them (like for @sundaybrew , @Scritty ) totally depends on affiliate providers sale's figure which is totally unfair. I don't believe on them, but as they are largest marketing provider, you've no other choice too.

    You won't believe their are so many big advertiser out there who do scam in a very shuttle way, and when you find out the scam they come up with their illogical terms and conditions. They manipulate the terms and conditions in a way, that you need to back off from the conversation.

    Normal publishers or newbies won't believe how they can be like that but it's true. My personal experience always suggest everyone ( who's making one sale or 1K sale) to keep the track record of sales and clicks, otherwise they always ready to prove themselves right.

    @Agent000 If you're well familiar with GA (Free monitoring tool) then you can easily figure out the option named as Conversions. Firstly, you need to create a campaign to track your sale and then you need tracking urls. All you need to do is to set up the Goal. At the end, create custom report to monitor the sales and you're done. Once the sale is done, you'll figure out from it was, either it's multiple sales from single IP or multiple IP, whether or not sales has converted successfully, and lots more.

    I think this would help you to get in detail of it.

    I am also have similar issues with CJ. Sent several clicks and not get any sales. I also find their reports bit complicated. I also had similar issues wiith shareasale. I am working with them from past 2 years and get paid several times, But suddenly few months ago they disabled my account with any valid reasons. All of my sales are generated from my blog and traffic coming for my blog is search engines. I had also contact them and ask the reason of suspension. The answer I get is really weird. They replied me that:

    "In order to maintain the integrity of our network, we are unable to go into more detail as to why your Account was disabled at this time "

    Since I manage internet marketing blog so, I started to join advertisers individually.

    I think CJ haven't credited the commission to your CJ account at any time for the purchase which is done by your own and reversed that commission. That means there is nothing restore and they told they will investigate that. So sometimes they might found that it is not eligible for commission.

    General rule is that any affiliate program never pay commissions for the purchases done by your own. So you would unlikely get the commission for your own purchase.

    "They emailed me and promised to restore balance AND look into problem but did neither."
    You didn't show us the email's content as it is to recognize the scenario properly. By the way, you should send a follow up emails asking what is the progress of the issue.

    One last thing, by experience I would like to tell that CJ is NOT A SCAM.

    CJ steals from those it can. It is not entirely a scam however.

    My experience is that they paid me nothing while I participated. Only after they detected I pulled down their ads did they email me to tell me I had a clicks and was owed money, but amount owed was just below the minimum payment so I needed to re-activate their ads to get more clicks and get paid. Obviously this was a scam since the money they say they owed me was for clicks when I was not running their ads!
