    Yes this is my first pay and these are the recent chats that I have had with my affiliate manager at Commission Junction. These guys are such smug smart asses:

    Response (Laurel)12/23/2008 01:58 PM
    Dear zomG our affiliate,

    Thank you for your inquiry.

    As far as I can tell, today is still the 23rd. I see that your direct deposit is being currently listed as 'processed,' as it mentions in the discussion, that you will be paid in the second round of Direct Deposits (processed on Tuesday, 12/23). The check is still in 'processing' which is the last step before it is actually paid out. This means it should hit your account shortly. Unfortunately you will just have to be patient with this as I do not have information enough to provide you with an exact day or time that the money will show in your bank.

    If you'd like to 'take your affiliate relations elsewhere' and close your CJ Account Manager please let us know and we can deactivate your account for you.

    Happy Holidays,

    Client Support

    Payment

    You should normally expect a response from Commission Junction within three business days. You can check the status of this incident by selecting the "Contact Us" link on the upper right side of your CJ Account Managerâ„¢, then choosing the "Go" link in the "Check Question Status" area.

    ***NOTE: It is recommended that you DO NOT add an additional comment to the incident you just created until you receive a reply from someone in Client Support. By adding more remarks the system changes the status of your incident to UPDATED versus NEW — which means it could take longer to get an initial response. If providing additional information is vital we suggest you create another incident and reference the number of this incident.***

    ZoMG an affiliate:

    It looks like you did stop the forum postings, though I did need to come back and confirm that and didn't until just now. This is Christmas season. We are beyond busy.

    So, you will get paid, though it will be in the second/final round of USD direct deposits, which goes out on Tuesday the 23rd.

    Michael Garber:

    If there are no advertiser warnings, you will be paid during the regular December payout time, which for USD direct deposits is currently scheduled for Thursday the 18th



    These are the two messages you have sent me about my payment. But you still have yet to pay me. I worked long and hard to get these sales for you and you guys are going to just not pay me like that? I am starting to think of taking my affiliate relations elsewhere. Whats going on? Why have I not been paid yet? My fiance is so upset with me because I told her we would have this money for gifts and now we have NOTHING. Do you know what that is to have your christmas ruined? Well thanks Commission Junction, I appreciate your ruining my Christmas!

    Wow, Burn. I've never liked these guys. I like to keep with CPA's - it's more informal and you can get along with your AM's

    CJ is probably the longest-established and the most professional of all the affiliate networks. They have by far the largest collection of big-name merchants. Their dealings with me have always been impeccable. And yes, they have always paid on time.

    Since this is your first payment through direct deposit, that probably explains the slight delay in processing your commission. I don't think it will help your cause to come across as angry or aggrieved.

    My two cents.

    Mine was deposited on the 19th.
    I've got an email sent, but not answered to the am of Kalyx (health related) because I've never (according to them) sold anything. Bullshit, I bought $48 worth of goods on the 14th of this month.

    I also got paid from them about 3 days ago and have never had any problems. Even though they are not my favorite network to deal with I've been with them over 5 years. Every network has their exclusive merchants and offers so I join every network I can find so I have the option to pick and choose from a ton of offers.

    Totally understandable that you are stressed about $$ and needed the money for Xmas... However, it looks like they told you it would be on or about the 23rd and that is just today. Seems to me like you are getting a little pushy with them but that's just my outside observation. I'm sure the money will be in your account by the 24th....good luck to you.

    For first publishers earning CJ will hold your money for 3 month to make sure the traffic you have drived to the advertiser doesn't violent CJ or Advertiser TOS.
    they usually check the source of your traffics , mostly for making sure if you have sent out any SPAM or Fake orders on your behalf

    Congrats man, I got paid as well. CJ will never cheat and they are one of the top and longest serving CPA network out there. You got paid a bit late due to first payment, which happens in many other networks as well.

    Cheers!
