signing up for cj difficult

 8:05 am on Jul 18, 2005 (gmt 0)

I dont know if Im a little slow or if cj is just complicated but I used to have an account with them, they closed it and now I would like to reopen a new one but cant seem to find a signup link on their site.

Go to CJ
Click on 'Learn about CJ Associate'
Click on 'CJ Marketplace'
And finally 'CJ Marketplace Publisher application'

I had the same problem days ago, until I did what Zygoot is saying.

But the most strange thing was, that I searched, looked, every CJ webpages for an email address that I can contact them and I can't found even one there!

Yeah, they do seem to be making a bit more difficult to sign up. I wanted to set my husband up with an account and it took my a good 5 minutes to find the application. Maybe it is a tactic to keep so-so applicants from signing up.

In my opinion CJ has always had the worst most user-unfriendly interface in the whole world. I still can't find much of anything in there, although after tripping about on the site for a couple years I manage to get a nice fat CJ check nonetheless. Imagine what I could do if I could ever find what I was looking for in there...

When I first signed up it took me a couple of days to get my application submitted, it kept dying 1/2 way through. Finally figured out that it didn't like Firefox (at the time) and I needed to submit via IE (weak).

I keep trying to signup and I don't see any boxes with code in it that they keep referring to at the bottom of the form? I have tried FF and IE.

Definately unfriendly.

follow Zygoots directions and on the last page look for "CJ Marketplace Publisher application" at the bottom of the page.


 6:28 pm on Jul 24, 2005 (gmt 0)

I was able to find and complete the application but at the bottom of the application it says -

Please enter the characters into the box below.

I may be blind but I can't find any characters anywhere to enter. If I look at the code, there is a gif situated right before the box, but on my screen in FF and IE nothing appears.

You must enter the 4 or 6 (i don't remember) characters that apeears, on the left side of the "box below". You don't see the picture with the characters? Maybe a problem with your security browser too hight?

I have the same problem with the CJ publisher signup page. My IE security and privacy settings are on LOW. The image does not appear.

1- Click tools.
2- Click Internet Options.
3- Click Privacy.
4- Under websites click Edit and look for anything associated with CJ or
Commission Junction.
5- If anything is found click on the domain and then click remove.

I used my daughters machine to sign up then and when I tried to log in from my machine into my account information I realized I was getting all kinds of java errors and I could not get most of the link images.

After playing around in both IE and FF, I disabled Spyware Blaster and was able to move about normally.

Does CJ load spyware on its affiliates machines?


 10:28 pm on Jul 25, 2005 (gmt 0)

not trying to be facetious but why on earth would you guys want to sign up with a company so obviously incompetent...these problems have been going on with these cowboys for 8 months now?

donīt you think itīs a bit strange that a company which professes to be an internet advertiser-publisher-whatever. canīt even configure a webpage?


 10:36 pm on Jul 25, 2005 (gmt 0)

I have to admit to having serious doubts about using this program due to the technical difficultly I have had so far. However I am interested in a few specific affiliates that they represent.

I really wonder how accurate their tracking is given what a pain it was just to sign up?


 10:41 pm on Jul 25, 2005 (gmt 0)

Thanks, kmander, that helped! I removed cj.com from the Privacy sites and I was able to see the image and signup.


 11:41 pm on Jul 25, 2005 (gmt 0)

Sometimes there are users with their systems so closed, 'protected', with anti-this, anti-that, ad-this, spy-that, and after all said that the website don't works!
