    Locked means that the merchant has not decided to extend that transaction and you should get paid for it this month.

    Thanks, I thought that it may have meant reversed. I did notice a fall in my commissions the other day though and cannot find anywhere inside CJ to track it. Approx which date do CJ payout? :)

    Go to the merchant for that offer, and look at commissions, you will probably see them having went from whatever the amount was, back to zero. Hard to explain but easy to find. CJ usually pays on/around the 20th, but if this is your first payment, it will probably be delayed a week or two.

    Just to let you know, it IS still possible for the merchant to reverse it, its just more difficult and more unlikely (especially if they already scraped some commissions) for them to do so at this point.

    CJ shaved my comissions by a lot this month. Out of $400 made only $100 got locked. I also KNOW these transactions were not returned. I heard CJ pays out the 20th. waiting on it desperately to buy my corp and get started bigtime.

    No, it means you will receive it.
