    Hi all. I'm rather new to the program and maybe lacking some information. Didn't find a lot of post about the ePN here (maybe there is a reason)...


    Do you guys know if there is a way to validate or check if the links generated by the link generator are actually working?
    There is post from 2008 suggest a "Link Validator" (if you google ePN link validator you find it), but i can't find it anywhere in my publisher area.


    The reason that I'm asking is that i had some success with other affiliate networks (similar to ePN) and ebay just seems like it is broken or something at the moment.
    Usually when i get 20,000 visitors to my website it translates to about 3,000 "clicks" to the merchant website (the one I am affiliate with).
    In ebay's case - the first time i ever promoted a website with ePN links in it (and only ePN) it worked well. ~20,000 translated to ~2500. but from that moment forward it just went down hill
    3,000 visitors - no clicks
    1,900 visitors - 32 clicks
    between the 27 and 28 of January i had ~12,000 visitors and it translated to ~250 "clicks"
    WTF?

    All the visitors are unique visitors, not bots or anything like that. I promote my website on various social network pages that I own (together forming about 1 mil followers)

    A quick look up of my links seems fine. The Campaign ID is right, if i click the link it takes me to where it is supposed to, there are no errors...

    Any advice would be appreciated!
    Any alternative suggestions on how to 'white hat' moniteze that trafic will be also very appreciated!

    Update: I found the "Link Validator" and everything seems to be working.

    Anyone else had similar problems? I have contacted the support, and now wait for their answer.

    Never had this issue but I would be interested to know what support said.
