I don't think this mod is working though - I know they're being clicked (and there has definately been sales) but nothing is registering with CJ.

The mod is doing it's job. It's rewriting the URLs successfully, as you can see yourself. Unless the URL format has changed, it's an eBay problem that they're not registering.

The interface in the Control Panel says:

"Enter your eBay Affiliate PID". Shouldn't this be the Commision Junction PID (for the particular website the forum is on) as shown on CJ?.

eBay has advertiser IDs ('AID' I think) not PIDs.

Can you clarify?

It's the number you get from CJ, so yes, Commission Junction PID.

I assume the AID number doesn't really matter as long as it references ebay...? For example, two ebay ads I have running on my site contain different AID numbers. Just curious.

If I log into CJ and create an aff link, the AID number is different. However, when you use the Flexible Destination Tool, the AID is as coded into this plugin. Clicks and revenue are counted properly on my end, hence it must be working just fine.

Only eBay (US) sales are working - ones from eBay UK aren't (The AID is the re-writen the same for both, which isn't correct).

Any chance we could get this to work with both?

:S I never knew they used different AIDs...Why does eBay have to make it so difficult? Could you give me a list of AIDs?

I'd like to but not sure where I'd get the info from. I'm not even sure they're static.

As mentioned earlier, the AID is different for the Flexible Destination Tool.

This is an awesome mod - even better if it'll work for all eBay AIDs.

eBay recommends using that website to help create automatic rewriting scripts, so I don't know why it shouldn't work across all eBay sites.
