Has anyone else experienced a staggering a drop in referrals since the new pricing system? We’ve had about a 30% drop in sales, so I would assume referrals are likewise down, but there is a significant gap between 30% and 3,000%. It is also odd that we have more depostis than registered members. Does anyone have any idea what might account for all this?

Yeah i had the same and i think it’s also because of the buy now feature that has been introduced witch i already did see coming.

I think you had more deposits because someone registered a month before and the deposit just came a month ahead that’s the only guess i can make, i had this too sometimes.

I’m not sure.. does the new pricing system require you to be registered when you’re paying the extra $2? If not, then that’s why. They simply arn’t registering, but buy straight away. ;)

Yes you need to register to buy either way, and we still get 30% of the first purchase of a referred buyer even if he buys-now rather than deposit.

But yeah it’s been slow here too since Xmas – I think we should just get rid of Christmas, it’s pointless anyway, it’s freezing, you can’t even go out, let’s just buy presents for the kids and that’s it :D

Well for me November and December was actually good but January has been really crappy.

I don’t think it’s the pricing system, rather it’s the people have no money left to spend.

Cheers

Well it must be because of the new +2$ pricing system; many people will pay 2 bucks to “save time”...

I couldn’t tell about the registrations %, because I’ve got none for like 2 months:

  • December 2009, 562 Clickthroughs, 0 Registered Members
  • January 2010, 38 Clickthroughs, 0 Registered Members

Man, where are you posting you ref links? CNN .com, techcrunch? That’s a lot of refs, at least for me it is :D :D

EDIT @Joost – yes, the new system doesn’t require registration. However, you should still get 30% off of their purchase nonetheless…

Dude u asked d rit question. I want to knw that too.
