Commissions in September, anybody received?

 8:27 pm on Oct 16, 2007 (gmt 0)

My commissions in september has been put into the current balance, who knows when CJ will pay for it? Have anybody received your commissions in September? I have set up the direct deposit.

CJ commissions are normally paid on the 21st of each month, either by direct deposit or mail, if there is a balance of $50 or more (unless you've set a higher payment threshhold; there might be a higher payment threshhold for payment by check than for direct deposit).

On another forum there are reports of payments received on time in September 2007, and I don't see any current reports of late payment or non-payment.

If your earnings haven't reached the applicable payment threshhold, you'll get paid when your accrued earnings do reach that amount.

I despise CJ and will no longer work with them, but timely payment was never an issue; when I did work with them, they paid on time, every month, without fail.

Clarification: payment is made on the 21st of the month for earnings that accrued up to the last day of the PRIOR month. Payment on September 21 would be for earnings through August 31; earnings accrued in September would not be paid until October 21.

It says at CJ that my check for Sept. was mailed out on Oct. 19th, and that's when it showed up in the interface. Minimum payout default is $25 for them to issue a check, which you can change in your preferences.

They're not my favorite network, but I've got a couple of merchants there who convert steadily for certain products, and other merchants I've tried have not converted for me on anything at all. For another product there is no other merchant that carries the stuff, other than one at CJ. If it's a product line that's hard to find, either I stay with the CJ merchants or have to pull the pages altogether. So who would that be hurting?

Umm... please do not tell me "try Amazon" with their session-only cookie, because I want return days on cookies, not like that infamously cheap, chiseling, affiliate-unfriendly LS merchant (whose links I've pulled) whose sales are most all non-commissionable with their deliberately stingy 3 return days. Or the one at LS with .20 return time, who only wants free branding.

There are also some products I've had pages up for that there are no decent merchants for outside of ones at CJ. I really don't think I should pull those pages off-line, either: who would that be hurting?

lets leave the diatribe on companies for another thread - this one is about ck dates and reception.

The process is that when it's getting very close to the 20th of the month (or on the 20th or 21st), the prior month's commissions accrued will go into the current balance, the "balance" on top of the interface will drop down, and within a few days checks are mailed or direct deposit transferred.

They don't pay all on the same day and time usually, it seems to be slightly staggered by batches. But CJ has some good merchants, and they're rock-solid for paying on time every month.
