    Yes I can say that earnings have definitely started to fall behind (currently its taking 3 days) and yet the new dashboard feature shows that earning were updated today at 12 MST.

    Also my earnings are getting worse and worse each day (I usually can do up to $200-300 in one day).

    yeah....something else I have noticed...in the actual auctions I am seeing the stats and clicks for some of my auctions go over 1000....but in EPN...its only showing me getting a few hundred clicks....is this because those other people are already stuffed or what? Why am i not getting all my clicks? (im stuffing....so i should be stuffing every person who visits the auction!)

    I have also noticed discrepencies in the click tracking of EP*N.

    I am tracking all unique IPs that are stuffed on my auctions. The counter visible on the auctions, my personal tracking, and EP*N click tracking all show vastly different numbers. For instance, One auction I have shows 196 views on the counter. My tracking shows 96 oreos eaten, and EP*N shows only 18 clicks.

    I can understand the difference between the view counter and my oreo tracker, as some users will have thier browsers blocking cookies etc. But I am not sure why EP*N is not registering all of the oreos eaten as clicks.

    Anyone have any thoughts?

    And I was thinking it was just me! lol

    The updates are horrible.

    As far as Pepperjam goes, I'm curious about that as well, although I just figured if you sign up with them, we're basically just sub-affiliates under their E*P*N account, whcih means they'd just be feeding us the same badly updated numbers that we're all getting from E*P*N.

    Pepper*jam is worse with updates. Way worse. And I'm convinced they shave/steal leads and sales.

    Dont forget tracking who's getting stuffed is an imperfect science especially if its through auctions since you dont have any way of knowing what browser they are using. If they're using IE - they aren't getting stuffed. If they're blocking cookies they arent getting stuffed. Lots of anomalies to reckon with when trying to track.

    Right now EPN is updated for me up to the 24th with earnings - 25th with clicks.
    P*J is updated with clicks til today - and earnings the 23rd.

    Well you are definitely second-tier with pepperjam... So not only do they get a percentage of what you make from e*p*n... but they also have the ability to shave...

    ... but nobody shaves right :rolleyes:

    shave? whats that? .......JK!!!

    drdankmendez, I feel your pain...I have one auction up that currently has OVER 800 views and it still has 4 days left on the auction...and i would estimate ive got MAYBE about 100 of those views as clicks....

    wiredmom, that is a good point...i thikn everyone should just stop using IE...that would help a lot :) haha

    Version 7 for sure - 6 - depends on which method you are using.

    I'm not any pro though so dont take my word for it. Ask boomer. :)
