    I saw some visitors to my site with Eb*ay widget thingy.

    Didn't see any impression in dasboard or full report.

    How many hours is the delay?

    I just wanna make sure my page is set up correctly. Thanks.

    Visitor stats update every 3-4 hours, earnings are posted the day after the transaction happened at noon CST.

    Thanks, man.

    I'll see how it goes...

    I was afraid I did something wrong cause of the campaign ID and optional campaign name that is being asked in the widget builder.

    I have had stats update 4 days after the fact.. Tuesday sales not reporting until Sunday.. It's far from a perfect system yet.

    yeah I think EPN has some major problems and the reporting is sketchy at best. A few weeks ago there was a 4 day span where almost nobody received commissions (this was the same time period where they were cracking down on stuffers). The discouraging thing is that they have never acknowledged that there is a problem.

    I just got this report

    impression 1
    clicks 10
    earning $2.72
    EPC $27.20

    Something not quite right.

    I'm not cookie stuffing and tracked that I have at least 30 visitors to my site but only 1 impression reported?

    The report also said my earning is $2.72, but EPC is $27.20?.... Shouldn't the EPC be $0.27 based on 10 clicks?

    :wtf1:

    The impressions are always a little screwy and wouldn't take much stalk in that. You need to install a tracking pixel for more accurate stats for impressions. But even if the tracking pixel isn't installed you will still get the clicks. As for the EPC is it earnings per 100 clicks.

    Thanks for clearing that one up :)

    I actually used the leaderboard widget... i thought it will track impressions without the tracking pixel since I only see it recommended in the link generator section.... will take your advice to install tracking pixel.

    Haha... in my Pepperjamnetwork I'm used to seeing EPC as earning per click... great, noted!
