How Often Are CJ Stats/Reports Updated

    Just wondering how often CJ updates your sales stats/reports. They don't update your stats immediately after each sale do they?

    Thanks!

    My understanding was that CJ themselves update every hour or two, but individual merchants update depending on their terms. Some update in 'live time', while some, as Tearabite says, only update once in a while.

    So even though CJ update their stats quite regularly, you may not see any sales appearing because of your merchant's reporting frequency.

    Thanks guys! I figured out how to go in and actually see what time my sales/leads happened and then it also shows when the info was last updated. By the looks of it it looks like cj/the merchants I'm using update quite frequently.

    Hello, I have a very serious concern.
    I started selling Godaddy's hosting 2 weeks ago. I made only 4-5 sales in the last week after spending 100's of dollars in advertising. I'm barely reaching breakeven.
    So, I tried to test the system. I asked a friend of mine to buy the hosting plan using my ref link. He bought the hosting plan with domain name by clicking the banner placed on my website.
    He did completed the signup process and published the website by 7PM april 3rd 2017. I kept refreshing Commission jucntion stats to see if the sale will update. Apparently its been 9 hours now and I don't see the sale yet.
    I now started to get a thought of '"is godaddy affiliate hosting program a scam"" ???
    Is it even possible?
    Or is it just me being paranoid and impatient, will the sale update after few more hours ?

    Please post your experience with godaddy affiliate program with CJ.
    Awaiting for some soonest feed back..
