I've started using cj.com & would like to research my best selling products.
I'm not sure how to get a report (possible?) to tell me the exact product sold.
I have the link ID #, which seems to point me back to the merchant... but no detail of exact product.

Clicking on Ad ID # - gives me a history ID #...

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

KP

You can add an SID to the product link, don't think CJ support is going to help at all. A few years ago you used to be able to put up a product link and when you got a sale could see in the reports exactly what product sold. That functionality went away during one of their "upgrades", they took away a merchants reversal rate during that same "upgrade"

If the merchant has Product Links you'll be able to see "Items" in your reports if you use those links. When you click on Items, it will show you the actual product sold.

If you are using Text or Banner Links, I don't think you'll be able to see the actual product sold.

Using SID's will only allow you to track your "intended" target, but the customer still could buy anything from the merchant website.

That's not true. What I just posted about them taking away that ability a few years ago.

The item information is still there. Do a Performance Report by Advertiser and if you see a quantity in the Item column, it can be clicked on to see the details. If the quantity in the item column is zero (and there are Sales), then that advertiser does not provide the item information.

Only a handful of my advertisers provide the item detail, so I use SID to at least know what the vistor clicked on.
