2 days ago i checked my CJ account and found i had finally made some money ,$40 checked it again yesterday still the same then today $0.00
it was $20per lead I got 2 leads..now there gone ,Im thinking maybe they were'nt geniune leads or something?
thought this was great cause i just started using Adwords which cost me around $10...
I checked the programs guidelines and they didnt say not to use ppc so it shouldnt be because of that.
I seen other affiliate links in the sponsored links hope they havent had the same problem..

anyone with suggestions or similar problems please help

It's not that uncommon. I think some programs in CJ automatically record the lead when the lead form is generated. Later, they go back and take out any leads that turned out to be invalid or incomplete.

If you have specific questions, it wouldn't hurt to follow up with the specific program and find out why the leads were backed out.

Always ask the AM, if you don't a reply then consider another program. The AM is there to serve you and not the other way around.

Are you referring to the spot on the main page after you login that says something like commission earned this month? That resets to 0 at the start of each month.

Did you go under the "Run Reports" tab and look them up there? I have had the odd commission reversed before but that's pretty unusual.

I have sent a email to the advertiser and i just got a reply that says they-
We speak with each lead to verify information. If the information is false, we credit back our account.

And I have checked all reports and the have gone back to $0

I stopped advertising on ppc till i find out more...
