    Hey guys,

    I took a long break away from CB until last night i got the urge to promote a product, social, article and few other ways and today I had 27hops, 1 sale which was pretty good. The item itself costs $100 and I was due to receive 65% comm. When I logged in I found 9$ registered for the sale, I checked my hop, the product is definitely 100$ and comm. is definitely as stated.

    Has this happened to anyone or does anyone know a way to resolve it? I plan on emailing the publisher later explaining what happened.

    Thx for any help

    Since publishers can have multiple product IDs that all can have different prices, check the product ID that you received commission for. They could offer a cheaper product on their sales page if someone decides to exit the page..

    This publisher is only a few months old and has a very, very low gravity. However there is only one pay page and that's for 100$. They are planning on offering more services but the pages aren't fully available to the public. I have decided to e-mail the publisher directly to see what they say.

    Cheers 4 the help

    Clickbank rarely if ever fails to track properly. What i'm saying is, check your reports and look under the ITEM column. It will have a #. Then visit that # to see the price..

    Example: ITEM# 7
    Publisher ID: whatever

    http://7.whatever.pay.clickbank.net

    Item - #1 How do I visit that number though, I only see one product when I type the publishers name in anyway.

    I cannot open that link btw, thanks for the help though. I emailed them asking if they can explain what happened.

    Cheers

    I've had this issue due to a merchant's adjustment of the price, which is annoying as hell but somewhat of a reality on CB. But lowering the commission to 10% on a digital download unannounced? Pretty bad form.

    I'd take him up on his/her offer to give you the published commission. Maybe he'll learn a good lesson in affiliate relations and you might become one of his top affiliates as a result. Who knows?

    Best of luck with this.

    Wow that's pretty lame of them to do. I wouldn't waste my time promoting is crap and find a similar offer to run.

    In the e-mail it sounds like he's going to sort me out with the cash, so long as the buyer doesn't request a refund, but I won't be promoting a 100$ product to make 10$ per sale. I literally got bored and type up an article, submitted it around a few social sites and other, and made one sale which was pretty cool, 60$ wouldn't of been bad for 40mins work.

    Do you think I should just wait to see what he says next or is there anything I can do really?

    Thx
