Just wondering if anyone had any experience along these lines. For the past 6 months I have been generating commissions from a particular product on cj to the tune of $1500 per month. Today I logged in and noticed they had reversed 75% of the commissions for the month. I read the advertiser detail page, and they now have text to the effect of not accepting the type of traffic I was sending. I received no notice of any sort, and the payment reverse was retroactive to the beginning of the month. How can I get payment for what I have already done?
It would be understandable if you were generating only leads and no sales over a period of time that would make the advertiser ask CJ to reverse your earnings. But if you have beeen generating enough sales for the advetiser to make it worth for him to pay you $1500 in commissions every month, then its strange why they should reverse your commissions. I think that could be the only reason why they reversed the commissions. If the sales are not more than the leads then it wouldnt make sense for the advertiser to keep paying you over a long period.
Now if it was in their terms and you sent it to them anyway, then chalk it up as another lesson on CJ. Don't just rely on the text in their intro page. Read the terms carefully, especially if you're going to be spending any serious money on traffic.
If they're just out of money, then no use trying to get it back. I had a merchant on CJ go under and CJ back charged me for every lead from the last 90days! Luckily, they were a small player for me or I would have been burned. DIVERSIFY DIVERSIFY DIVERSIFY! Need I say more?
