    I have to call them tomorrow as their offices are not open at this time. But for the past 2 months CJ has taken $10.00 per month from my account balance. I thought it was just a mistake that my account would reflect a $10.00 decrease, and thought the problem would be corrected. But, when I looked at my account balance this month another $10.00 was taken, I was shocked.

    I have never had much luck with CJ at all, but taking money from a publisher that uses nothing but "White Hat" SEO, is a new low.

    Is anyone else experiencing this problem??

    It's in their TOS, I think they start to do it after 6 months of inactivity.

    This is true, after 6 months of no sales -10$ every month. You need either to get your cheque now (if you don't meed minimum, just close account) or to get at least one lead/sale

    Why the hell would they need that 10$? Does it go to charity or to El Presidentes swiss bank account?

    Probably! They usually charge 10/mth for inactivity.

    yea just use your account.

    i just checked my balance and it went from $40 down to $30.

    but srsly, only having $40 in there for 6 months straight is my own damn fault :p

    Wait a second, does CJ charge you even if you don't have anything earned? Regardless that's terrible! I was thinking about signing up for CJ but no I don't think so. I already have plenty of inactive CPA accounts lying around.

    Are there any other affiliate or CPA networks that charge for inactivity?

    Thanks.

    When I had an account with CJ I never saw this, perpahs I got paid out before this happened or maybe I was just lucky.

    However this did happen with my Click Bank account when I first started.
