My average EPC has dropped from about $2.50 to around $.40 in the past few days. I have talked to a couple of other folks who see the same thing. Today, my last lead was posted about 6 hours ago from a sale generated 3 hours earlier.

Something is horribly wrong from what I can see. It may be about time to drop them.

The problem is that CJ earns revenue even when a client doesn't pay their affiliates, because CJ charges a monthly fee. So there's no real incentive for CJ to closely monitor their clients for defrauding affiliates.

Just clarifying something in Pulsar's post. CJ's monthly minimum is not that much. They make most of their money by charging a percentage of the commissions paid out. The more commissions paid out - the more they make. When sales are reversed that money comes back out of their pocket. So they profit more when you guys make more. I just got back from CJU and have a little extra insight due to that eperience. Not defending what's going on - I just know that they TRY to do the right thing and are working on fixing some problems.

Maybe we can all throw in a few bucks and buy out CJ ;-)

That would be cool--The foxes running the henhouse...But at least it would run! :-0

Seriously though...can't someone start a real aff mgmt company?
