    Hey all,
    So I just started working with CJ more in the last week or so, as it seems all big name companies work with them.

    Anyhow, I searched but cannot find what exactly batch processing is?

    I noticed it is different for each advertiser, so does that mean I do not know my commissions/stats until the advertiser does a batch process?

    Or is it CJ counts my commission same day, but when the advertiser does a batch process, they can invalidate leads, etc.?

    Sorry if this question seems confusing.. :)

    Batch processing is exactly that. The advertiser processes batches of transactions and sends the results to CJ. A few of the advertisers I promote do this. It makes it a pain in the neck to track your stats if they don't process batches on a regular basis. If they process batches every day it's no problem.

    Oooh, was wondering why one day my commissions would be huge and then would be zero for a while. haha thanks :D

    EDIT: Also, does this raise any flags with CJ themselves? If one day you get a huge check, then nothing the rest of the week? I am guessing not but figured I would ask if anyone had experience with that.
