    Commission Junction leads?

    Unless I'm going crazy, the leads (website users fill out a quote) that are produced on my website aren't real-time -- they don't show up until the end of the day.

    Clicks are updated in real-time, as are impressions, as CJ claims. As of right now, I have XXX clicks, XXXX impressions, however, no leads, which is impossible. I'm with a highly reputable advertiser, one of the highest earners in CJ -- they convert very well.

    Are the leads just lagging behind the other stats? Does this happen to anybody else with CJ, where all stats update in real-time except for leads/earnings?

    Yes, this is perfectly normal. I have found that there is almost always a delay in reporting leads and sales at CJ. Depending on the advertiser, this delay can be anywhere from a couple of hours to several days.

    Yes depending on the day CJ can have a lag in reporting. Also some merchants batch upload leads days later after they verify they are good so leads and sales are not reported real time.
