    Yeah it doesnt refresh instantly, clicks and impressions are delayed a few hours, leads, sales, and such are 24 - 48 hours delayed.

    When did you start promoting? Just recently? Wait at least 2 - 6 hours for clicks to show up.

    Hmm, they should have shown up by now, I dont know who you are promoting, but the two dating sites I promote(paid for lead and sale), the clicks and impressions update throughout the day, and the leads and sales update around 12 am and 2 am.

    They do not update their stats in real time, it happens frequently for clicks and impressions but not as those clicks and impressions are actually happening which would be real time, but some time later, I have noticed an update every few hours on clicks and once a day on sales and leads.

    On the main page after your login it should show you the stats on the left hand side, like this:
    Quick Stats Edit, Hide
    Web Site XXXXXXXXXX
    Period Today
    Commission earned $XXX.XXX USD
    Sales XXX
    Leads XXX
    Clicks XXX
    Impressions XXX
    CTR N/A
    EPM N/A
    EPC $XXXX.XX USD

    You don't have any Impression because you didn't added the CJ pixel to your Link

    Tracking Pixel is a .Gif image with 1x1 px size without any color when some one see your page that image which is unique for you will be load in CJ server , it will count as 1 Impression

    when you don't include that Pixel image to your Link you wouldn't receive any Impression.
    CJ doesn't pay for Impressions any more , so its only for your own tracking and adding or not wont influence your account at any case.

    if you are Doing PPC and you directly put your CJ link you cant add that tracking pixel for impression but if your ad is landing on a web page just go to Get links > and click on HTML link and completely copy and paste the Code on your web page.
