VigLink eBay earnings started off with a bang

and now they are plummeting.    I guess Ebay lowered my Quality Click Pricing?

3rd week in March, $10, 4th week in March, $5.  1st week in April, $2.  Last week, $.45.  I actually have ebay clicks and no earnings at all for April 10th-16th.  Is anyone showing eBay earnings for the 10th-16th?

Oh well, I guess it was good while it lasted. ;)

eBay reporting is broken on Viglink at the moment Janet. There's a message on the dashboard. 

But the value of clicks has also dropped for me from when Viglink first started.

I think ebay reporting is broken EVERYWHERE! I'm seeing the worst earnings of the past 10 years. They had major problems with their feeds last month and have to do a make good.

Thanks for posting this I've had clicks and no earnings for the same period. Ebay is so horrible and draconian to deal with, I'm afraid of complaining or asking questions -for fear of being booted out.

No reporting for me either.

Shall we call 'em "Pea-Bay"?

Check your stats. I'm showing earnings for yesterday - a whopping 88 cents. That's after days of zero.

Nope, nothing yet.  Last day of earnings was the 9th.

Is that from eBay or another program? I do have Viglink earnings showing for Amazon.

Sorry, that was my ebay earnings for yesterday from my own websites. I am not signed up with viglinks here.

Might be a problem in Ebay's reporting to the affiliates.   Squidoo is also having problems with their Ebay reporting.

I was thinking the same thing today.  Squidoo and VigLinks are having issues and on my personal EPN account, the transaction download report has not updated in days.   I just checked Hubpages, though, and ebay seems to be working fine there.  So who knows.

Looks like the problem was on Ebay's end.  VigLink and Squidoo reporting is now fixed and the transaction download reports on my EPN are working again.

As long as it gets back in order.

I have noticed with Viglink, that the click amounts are varying like when Ebay first switched to the click system on my main account.  My guess is that it will vary a lot until they can establish a "real level" for our Wizzley Ebay sales.  Started at whatever their starting level is, then went down, now it is going up a bit.  As we build a history through Viglink, it will stabilize.

It is as if we are starting over with a brand new account for Ebay.

I can definitely confirm that click rates are changing now on a daily basis for Ebay on Viglink.  I had one rate for Monday of this week, and a different rate for Tuesday.  That is normal for Ebay, so I think it will settle into a regular pattern over time.

I've had my account for 10 years - the EPC still changes every day - by a lot. Very unsettling.
