    I don't pay for my traffic.

    But imagine if I did:

    CB's fucking credit card system is fucked up.

    Why the fuck can't they just get a bunch of test people to BUY with VALID CREDIT CARDS so they can see the fucking problem.

    FUUUUCK

    1:1250 ain't bad! ;) Just kidding. Does it normally convert pretty well, & do you normally achieve that many hops/day?

    If the traffic is highly targeted, and if it used to converted until yesterday (and not weeks/months ago), and if the host of the publisher was ok and a couple more if's, I would create a new cb account to test it.

    I normally get like 700 hops a day with about 4-6 sales.

    To be fair, traffic aint that targeted but I did this thing a few months back and got 17 sales in 1 day... yes 17. NOT 2.

    I might start my own CB....

    This is really getting on my nerves. And I don't know whether it's just small-timers getting cross or whether there truly is a problem. That's the predicament.

    I agree with all of you, i noticed a drop in sales and e-mailed Clickbank yesterday. Surprisingly, their reply wasn`t a copy-and-paste "check your website" answer. They actually asked me if my stats were based on their hop system or my own analytics. I told them my own analytics, let`s see what they say... Also got two e-mails from prospective customers asking why their valid credit cards were declined. Lovely.

    Hey dorsera,

    This stood out to me

    I think you should email that to Clickbank. I think that's the route of the problem.

    Im not a big time publisher so don't get any of those emails. If you are then I suggest you flag it up so they get their system fixed.

    It isn't right at all. And we're all feeling the pinch for it.

    Only reason why I'm staying with CB is 1. the products and 2. the fact all my earnings are in 1 account.

    Well, they are trying to eliminate fraud activity since click bank is known for fraud..
    Maybe your traffic is not targeted enough, that's a possibility too.

    Man, what can i say? I am a small publisher and get around 30-50 hops per day. Less at weekends. But my last sale was made at October 15th. Almost 2 months went by. All traffic from SE, natural keyworded traffic. 2 Months, 30-50 hops per day = a random 1900 hops and zero sales.

    It feels so good when you know that you have sent the same quality traffic with at least the same amount as usually and you end up with 0 sales and $0 earnings for a couple days...

    I just love CB for their extremely GREAT margin of error...

    Well if the traffic is not that targeted then u cant expect people to buy, u may be getting curious viewers but not buying ones, also depends what niche you are in, by the sounds of things your conversion rate sucks, you might need to try another niche.
