    Yes, if what I said above was true, it would be like running an auction in real life, the highest bidder win, gets the "prize", goes home, comes back a few weeks later and takes back half the money and says "nah turns out I didn't want to pay as much as I did afterall".

    Sounds like hokey-pokey to me, and I'm only hoping that you (BannerConnect) can give us clarification about this, because if it's the case, I'll be switching back to someone else who I at least can trust that the reported earnings are what I'll be seeing on my check when it receives.

    This is the feedback we received from our ad serving company.

    Case Number: RQST00000216412
    Product: DFP
    Summary: Site compensation report problem

    Update:

    per our conversation. This is a monthly report and for each time it is generated
    if calculates for the entire month. It does not add totals on to the previous day.
    So if CPM's were changed it will calculate the entire month with the new figures. I
    will go ahead and resolve this case, feel free to re-open the case if you have any
    questions/problems.
    As stated prior, we have changed the campaign back to the way it was so things should be back to normal tomorrow and we will change the campaign at the beginning of next month.

    Again, we apologize for the inconvenience and please contact us at support@bannerconnect.net if you have any question.

    I emailed Alex from Bannerconnect about my utter hatred for DART. They were cool enough to switch me over to an AdvertPro interface in a matter of a few hours.

    I used the DART for a few days. hated it. Stats were so wrong. they switched me to Advert Pro been using it for 3 days now. I run their code through PHPAdsNew the numbers have matched 100% all 3 days. and my rates have been a lot better $0.19 for 468x60 and $0.24 for 728x90. It updates stats in realtime, rather then every 24-36 hours.

    I've been really happy since the switch, ad am going to put them ahead of RealCast/Mammas/Bluetime as 2nd in my chain

    I checked today's latest report, and it's still showing the incorrect number (it's about $400 off).

    so how about us, are we going to stay with DART and see them odd numbers? I'm still seeing 0.12 CPM

    Update: all BC banners are f up now and don't show anything, that's not the way of doing business, sorry.....now again I have to change my chain, this month have been awful for me.

    Time to check realtech , how are they doing there

    The main thing is that BannerConnect rep cannot answer our questions straight, we are still waiting for your clear answer Michiel. I don't care what you plan there in house or whatever you want, we are talking about money here, not just numbers, so please answer us. Luckely I didn't put you first in the chain, kidbuu's situation is really bad.

    I've checked my report as well, compared to yesterday, it looks alright, HOWEVER - The actual earnings from yesterday have disappeared into nothingness it seems, yesterday and the day before are gone, approx, guestimate about $100 short. It's not the world, but it certainly is money, money I don't want to see gone.

    I'm not going to sit around wait for them to shape up and think that all is swell, so yeah, better see a fix soon on my end, or I'll be jumping ship.

    NFS: As we have told yesterday already it was something within the DART system it calculated all campaigns back till the beginning of April, all has been set back now and should be back to normal in your reports within 24hrs!

    You said tomorrow's reports, which I'm looking and right now, and according to my own guestimations it's about $100 short of what it should be totally. Not cool.

    As we all know DART has a 24hr delay and since we solved this problem last night... it will take some time to update all, we know, we know and are working very hard on an internal solution! Give us some time please, we are doing our best to satisfy all.

    My CPM went from 0.17 to 0.11

    I just hope I dont have to change codes twice in a month. Fingers crossed.

    Sounds quirky to me. I can safely say BannerConnect has placed doubts in my head about their ethics. DoubleClick, no matter how bad they may be, is used by hundreds of advertisers. When I do my direct dealings, I never had an advertiser retroactively reduce my amount earned. Sorry, that excuse just does not fly in my book.

    They are the same as yesterday, only with yesterday's earnings as well. Hasn't been rectified.

    still $0.12 CPM, and it's passed well over 24 h!

    BannerConnect: you are going to pay at a rate I had before, i.e. $0.17. That's ridiculous to have it all the month at a stable rate of $0.17 and the next day waive a piece from each publisher. Please comment on this whether you are going to pay with old numbers or new ones we see there now or maybe you are not planning to pay at all? We can expect anything from you now.

    It's ridiculous that we actually have to argue about whether they're gona pay the old rate or not. Ofcourse they will pay the old rate to us....., I just hope they can figure out how.
