    So I had this offer on maxbounty & ran the banner on 3 of my sites. My stats were 1 out of 10 clicks would convert. So this advertiser canceled with maxbounty & I found the same exact offer on CJ which pays half of what it was on maxbounty. I put the same add, it's the same freaking banner & it's been a week & none of the clicks converted according to CJ. How's that freaking possible? :zx11pisse

    cj is very shady. I think they are taking around 30% of my commissions.
    I have no other choice though. I have to live with them.

    You mean skeptical? I would just move on to another offer. CJ sucks anyways (from what I hear).

    They take for ever to pay, shave like hell and ban you at first occasion. Use only if you have no other options and sending WH traffic

    I do not have any problems with CJ. Yes they do take forever to pay out but and there are a few disappearing bucks now and then. Also their website has been quite often unreachable.

    The trick is to find a good product to sell. So no crappy email submits or ringtones/insurance/credit stuff.

    Maybe the CJ failure to pay out is some kind of gliche? Or maybe it's just certain vendors that are shady and not the entire Commission junction.

    CJ is either hit or miss for people, sometimes I believe they pay who they want to....
    Their reports also can take days to show stats... I hate that
