    I joined cj few weeks ago, but am really shocked about their low paying commission o_O Yesterday I made $1,189.00 sale to get 35$ only?!
    is it normal for cj products? is there any 75% commission like cb products?!

    Well am living them right now and they can keep the 35$ this is ridiculous really...

    That would not be CJ offering the commission but the advertiser inside CJ... look around and you'll probably find better ratios than that.

    None are going to pay CB numbers though as CJ is primarily physical products as opposed to intangibles as is offered on CB.

    it says between 3% - 25% per sale & I made 2 sales $1k+ & $600+ but they give me 3% commission huh?! are they expecting 10XXX$ sale to get 25% comission or what?

    However, I was just testing cj for the first & last time ...

    Send an email to the AM for that advertiser and make sure they got it right per their terms. It could be an error.

    I would not bail on CJ completely if you are able to move products as they are a very good platform. We do a lot on CJ spread over a few different accounts and have for seven or eight years now and they protect the publishers as well as offer a huge variety.

    CJ is not the issue here, it is the actual advertiser and there are a boat load of good ones that use that platform.

    On the other hand, Micky says you can get 50% on gambling and if you can drive that kind of traffic those are HOT numbers as to payment percentage.

    Maybe you should name the product, since you're leaving them so others can avoid it.

    Or, you may not name it, if that reveals your niche and I know no wants to reveal their niche.

    Either way, it's not at all good numbers. I left them way long back cos for this.

    If you don't like the commissions you're making, promote another product.

    It's as simple as that.

    It is usually based on the product line.. If you are selling electronics then you will not get more than 4% anywhere.. walmart gives you 2%.. Once I sold 74 hp computers and got a commission of just $1200 (this was before hp launched their partner program and managed affiliates through CJ).. but this year with very little effort sold 21 godaddy hosting accounts and made 2000+. CJ is good, but use it only for products like webhosting, finance and credit card offers.. Even amazon is better than CJ if you are focused on physical products.

    OH MAN sorry to hear this.

    You've chosen the wrong affiliate program in CJ.

    I'm promoting GoDaddy affiliate, although
    I don't have big traffic, and sales are only $0.99

    I'm making good money from it.
