    seems like shaving. Do you have any other traffic counter installed on your site or it is just the data from your affiliate company. Sometimes they make mistakes but it really seems like shaving. Also tell us which is the network.

    Ok, the problem was due to the advertiser, the offers where conversions too much... heres the email I got.

    "Another note to pass on concerns offer #2103, [Submit] OnlineConsumerRewards - Argos UK. The advertiser had a glitch with their campaign yesterday/today, causing leads to be recorded when they should not have been (conversion rate was more than double the normal rate). They have identified the issue and the invalid conversions were scrubbed off. On our end we addressed the issue by keeping the erronous leads in the system and reducing the payout appropriately."

    So I have lost $300 in the space of 2 days... fuck that! lol.

    Seems your answer is solved, but still a bummer. Shaving is part of the game, whether it's a true glitch or not, who knows. But it seems you are doing well, despite a temporary setback. Take your lumps and push forward, no sense complaining about split milk.
