    ypn taking my money

    I went to bed last night and had earned X,XXX. With 3 hours left for that to still increase higher. I woke up this morning and checked it and not only was it not X,XXX but it was 25% less than what i saw when i went to bed.

    Did this happen to anyone else?

    It's stand practice for the amount to be audited and adjusted for invalid clicks.

    Your daily balance is always an estimate, so you shouldn't be surprised when they deduct or add to it at the end of the night or month.

    I never bother to check the amounts until the next day.

    pretty much every network if you check it at 11pm, and then check it at 1am, it will be lower. They all do their audits at that time. The worst I ever saw was ValueClick, I usually lost about 15% every day between those hours.

    Yea, it seems all networks do this. I remember Chitika when they first started did an audit a month or more after. That was crazy.

    yeah I was with someone (I want to say Gorilla Nation but not 100% sure, but pretty sure) that did their audit once a month, and also didn't have the final figures for what your eCPM would be till the end of the month, so they just estimated all month, then at the end of the month if some campaign they estimated would be $0.50 actually paid $0.25, that amount was taken out. MAN did that sucks. One month I had over $5,000 on the 30th of the month, come the end of the 31st I was down to like $2700
