    Hi guys. We want to build an affiliate daily offers and coupons site which updates automatically. CJ is our preferred network due to their merchants. But we are unsure which platform to use. Some people seem to suggest Magento and others suggest WP. A techie strongly recommended that we get a coder to build a web app (?) from scratch but I havent got a clue about that. I think we will also want to add other data feeds from other networks in the future. Would be interested to hear your suggestions. Thanks.

    I have similar online publications to what your looking at doing and suggest you ensure anything you build is responsive, users will view it on multiple devices.

    I would also expand from just using cj.com.

    Ultimately your ideal user will be a subscriber who registers for deal updates.

    Have you figured out how you are going to drive them to the site yet?

    i suggest using WP for it SEO advantage, easy to control, tons of addon, easy to expand.

    Thanks for your replies guys. Looks like WP is the way to go :) Is there a plugin or theme out there which will display affiliate product feeds and automatically update them? I cant find anything.
