    Delay in CB stats?

    Hi guys

    I'm not sure if I'm being ripped off, or if Clickbank's stats can sometimes be delayed.

    On checking my tracking stats today, I saw that I made one sale. But I had not received an invoice from Clickbank and there was no sign of the sale in my Clickbank stats.

    However, an email address had been entered into my autoresponder series - the buyer has to give it on the thank you page to get a software key.

    Are the stats sometimes delayed, or does this mean that someone has passed on the link to my download page? The address entered is ..@mailinator.com which makes me suspicious.

    Thanks

    Frank

    Hi Frank,

    As far as I am aware, ClickBank sales stats are updated instantly, as soon as a sale is processed. Timely availability of sales data is essential to the operation of some backend automation scripts, which are triggered from the download page and which use stats data to generate follow-up email messages. If there was a delay in stats being updated, these products would not work reliably.

    So, I suspect that what you have described is the result of one of your friendly customers sharing your download URL.

    It happened to me recently. A sale was made to a customer, who downloaded from an IP address in London. A few hours later, the same URL was used to repeat the download from an IP address in Wyoming. At first, I thought that this speedy transatlantic crossing was caused by Concorde being put back into service, but it's more likely piracy was to blame.
