Default Amazon 8 day old stats?

Anyone have recent Amazon.com stats. My stats are still only of 25th november. Can't remember them having an 8 day delay in stats.

There was a time when they only updated stats once a week. This does not surprise me. Maybe they are back to the once a week update schedule...

According to a thread on their new BB they're having problems with stats but sales are being recorded.

Some one over there need to understand that we need this stats not only to know how much erning we made but also to better target our adds.
8 days is two much.

I know what you mean, I started using a pay per click search engine directing traffic to the site I'm selling Amazon stuff on late the evening of the 24th of November...all stats stopped on the 25th.

I believe the email address for sending complaints to amazon about this is associates@amazon.com (please correct me if i'm wrong). Please send them an email about this, even if you've already read what they have said in responses to other emails. We need to put the pressure on them and make sure they know that this is not an acceptable way to treat affiliates.

Mine have also been updated but like you to the 26....

Are they joking ? Can't they at least update the full week ?

I guess the programers at amazon are more interested in making user forums then fixing the Data system.
Almost Year 2002 and they are unable to provide Live stats

I'd love to see live stats at Amazon too. I doubt we ever will though.

Didn't notice this when I first went to the stats area but they have put up this note:

The reporting data from November 26 through today is unavailable at this time. We appreciate how important these reports are to our Associates and apologize for the delay. As always, our goal is to provide you with timely data as soon as possible, and we hope to begin updating reports soon. Thank you for your patience.

Hope we don't have to wait another week to see 1 more days stats!!!!!

I don't know exactly how Amazon servers are configured but it's probably the server load and the extra trafic what making them so slow.
If they are processing each day's sells and then updating all acounts then it will really take them more time to process each day.
That will explain why the Stats have been updated for one more day.

In any case they can do better
