So past week, one of my friends was trying to buy a web hosting plan and I suggested him - given the current price with deals - to go for iPage and he purchased the web hosting through my affiliate link. Guess what? Been 1 week - and the there's no transaction report from iPage on my CJ panel. I emailed the representative twice and haven't received any reply although it has been over 5 days now. I also contacted the live support, met a lady who was friendly but couldn't solve the issue. She basically asked for my user info and my friend's username and told me I should be hearing back from the affiliate support soon. Fast forward 2 more days...... Heard nothing so far. I also emailed the direct affiliate support (unrelated to CJ) about it and they ask the same thing: Please verify your friend's username and stuffs. After I replied to them, I haven't heard anything. (2 days over, and counting) How are we supposed to trust these affiliate programs at all? What % of conversion rate is normal for a [manually listed] coupon website? I get about 65% organic traffic from Google. I don't have banner ads on the website in question. I use text links (affiliate links that gets people discounts)... so when users click, they know what they're doing. Moreover most of my visitors visit my site to click on those links. And yet, CJ shows no transactions although I get 20-50 clicks on any given day. This is so suspicious. I consistently see live visitors pop up on my google analytics map who are looking for coupons and at the end of the day when I see the clicks but no sales reported, I get disheartened. The numbers don't add up. Should I email CJ about this? What are your experiences?
