    Its like the 6 time this happen to me with CJ.com
    about 2 weeks ago i logged in to my account and i got 2 sales for 100$ Each , i loggout and check it again after like 2 or 3 hours and guess what?? the 200$ are gone .
    I thought that im drunk and i said to myself that cj is a big and well reputated company and i don't think they do this.
    Now im pretty sure im awake , logged to my account and 3 sales for 100$ each and after 1 hour i checked my account again and THE SAME THING happened .
    I don't think that its a coincidence .
    And beside those 2 times that i found the sales on my dashboard , there is sometimes i give my affiliate links directly to my clients (its happen to me like 4 times or more) and im sure they have the cookies enabled and i even ask them to clear their cookies before they click my link , but i never got any sales from them.
    So my advice (Especially for those 100$/sale ) is to signup directly with the advertisers website not with CJ .

    cj is safer than direct networks

    i am guessing you got sales for hosting and due to fraudulently orders that;s reverse on cj.

    I am with cj since 2006 and so far all is well :)

    Definitely agree with the advertisers not approving funds, although in my case i was spamming for dating website sign ups. So blackhat methods will always run into this kind of trouble.

    CJ suck end of story. They are my last choice. If I can't find offers with any othe cpa then I might go to CJ. However I find even adsense does better than them.

    CJ is a stright up network for legitimate whitehat methods and some greyhat but if you are 100% blackhat, you are better off with another network. CJ will hold over your money for 30 days or more with the "lock" that they have which is designed to thwart bogus leads and fake CC signups. If you have enough legit and consistent sales with a certain vendor (such as HG) they will lift the lock and pay you regularly. Otherwise you will wait for your money and they will verify the sale or lead every way possible. If they get the smallest hint the sale or lead was made outside the terms of the offer, they will pull your money. If it happens enough times, you'll get cancelled by the advertiser, even more, banned from CJ.

    If you have legit signups, contact the AM for your advertiser or program and speak to them on the phone. Of all the networks I've worked with, CJ is the easiest to get accepted to, shaves the least but is one of the strictest when it comes to rules.

    cj sucks. When my linkshare account is making good money for very similar product cj, was not making money at all. So tested them with identical products/promotion, and with equal traffic CJ made one or two sales a day when compared to linkshare which made 30-35 sales. This cannot be real.

    But the sad thing, big players like hp and lenovo are still with cj, and I am unable to find alternatives to become a hp affiliate.

    So left with no alternative at the moment.

    Note: I don't do any blackhat.. the website is 100% white hat and has only organic google/bing traffic. I sell mostly electronics

    Charlie you really find they shave the least? I find they shave the most and I only do white hat. Maybe it is a niche thing.

    I don't think its an advertisers problem and i doubt they can even remove the sales from my dashboard , i had some CC fraud signups in the past but they always showing on the report but they don't pay for them this is why im 100% its a CJ.com problem .
