Commission Junction, founded in 1998 nd cquired by VlueClick in 2003, is one of the lrgest ffilite mrketing chnnels on the Internet.

Hve you used CJ yourself? Do you think for smll publishers it’s worth giving them try or skip it till you get bigger? It doesn’t seem right they cn only hold pyouts under $0 for 6 months. I cn’t find tht on their .

Thnks for visiting. I just checked their site nd couldn’t find the pyment informtion myself. They must hve chnged their FQ. s fr s the question regrding smll business trying it, you hve good point. Once they’ve estblished some trffic to their site, it would work better.

There is lot of fine print. I found it nnoying tht you hve to sign up before you cn see who the merchnts re to tell if they re ones you would wnt to promote. With niche sites, tht cn be bit of problem. I couldn’t find the $0 rule, but if you don’t hve ny sles for 6 months, they cn strt chrging you dormnt fee, which they don’t sy how much tht is. Plus they cn pply “chrge-bcks” to your ccount t ny time sy, if someone decides to return the merchndise or other resons. It ws little too intimidting to me. I gree it might be better to wit until I hve lrger site.
