How often does VigLink update report?

I've been getting some hits trickling in on VigLink and am really excited about it.

Do they update clicks in real time or once a day?  I know sales can take a while to show up, I'm just wondering about clicks.  I check it throughout the day but haven't been able to notice a pattern and if it just updates once per day I'll stop.

Thanks!

I don't know.  I am also wondering if the stats show clicks that we make on our pages. My report wasn't showing any clicks since Sun which was odd. So, yesterday I clicked my cafepress links about 5 times, yet my report is only showing 1 cafepress click yesterday. 

I know they are currently looking into the rover.ebay tracking issue to see why clicks in the ebay module are not showing up in the revenue section.   However, my report from yesterday shows two clicks in the revenue section for the ebay module. So, was it fixed?

I am very excited to incorporate more VigLinks into my pages, but am hestitant to do so until I feel more comfortable with their reporting.

I was not sure when putting links in if we were allowed to check if they were working OK by clicking on them. Especially  as some of their retailers seem to pay by sale and others by click. It concerned me that it might be the same as  Adsense rules.  Then again it could be that they have a way of knowing not to count any clicks by the writer.

So I am hoping someone knows how this works. I know you can get another page up (analytics) that shows the retailers and the click outs from your article even if they are not on of their list of retailers. I have looked for an answer about the clicks on the site but have not found it yet.

The clicks seem to get updated more than once a day, but I'm not sure it's real-time. 

The revenue seems to arrive over night (in the UK) but sometimes I've had nothing for a while then multiple days at once. (I'm getting a little bit of revenue from eBay text links.)

Other than eBay I have no idea who pays per click. I'm avoiding clicking, but I'd like to see some guidance. 

I don't know if we're allowed to use images from the retailers or if there are any other terms and conditions either.

I know Cafepress doesn't pay for clicks, so that is why I used those links to test.   If we cannot test our links, hopefully someone will let us know.

Now that I look at my report again, it does not show any of the cafepress clicks I made yesterday.  It only shows two Ebay clicks.   That is worrisome.  How come the cafepress clicks did not register?
