Consumerconcerned101's review of Commission Junction


“I'm still surprised that so many people "wonder why"...”

Written on: 22/03/2011 by Consumerconcerned101 (1 review written)

I'm still surprised that so many people "wonder why" Commission Junction pulls such *** moves (and by the way, these are exactly the kind of sketchy, predatory "inactivity fee" practices that recent federal legislation has BANNED and/or cracked down on hard, by credit card or gift card issuers).

Here's the deal: Commission Junction COUNTS on the fact that the majority of its ads will be published by small publishers who will, individually, NEVER be able to collect a dime of their affiliate payments. This creates, collectively, a HUGE and steady income stream for Commission Junction, and helps CJ offer better deals to their large customers-both advertisers and publishers.

I have heard some shortsighted defense of Commission Junction by people who actually think the failure to pay out to small affiliates is justified by the cost Commission Junction incurs to its bandwidth by hosting the images used in these ads, and tracking the clicks. "Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaa " Yes, that's the sound of Commission Junction laughing all the way to the bank with millions of cumulative dollars from small affiliates.

Commission Junction is very pleased for its massive-income-generating small publishers to continue to publish CJ ads, banners, and links long after their accounts have been made dormant, and then deactivated. Are you kidding? After they take every penny under $100 that a paid-by-paper-check affiliate has in his/her account, Commission Junction still gets months and months of free advertising out of these small affiliates who often don't even realize that they've been deactivated!

What can you do? Well, you can stop using Commission Junction. And if the advertisers you like are not total industry giants, you can lobby them to switch to Google Affiliate or any better program. You might be surprised, but this works. In fact, a lot of mid-sized advertisers are actually pretty angry to discover that the money they paid to Commission Junction to pay affiliates never even got to the affiliates, but went right into Commission Junction's deep, dishonest pockets. I mean, how would you feel if you were an advertiser and you gave Commission Junction a million dollars that supposedly got passed on to affiliates as their commission on your sales, plus you paid CJ some percentage for administering the whole process, and then you found out that $850,000 of that million never went to any affiliate because Commission Junction took it out of the affiliates' account, and instead of returning it to you as "unpayable commissions," they just kept it for themselves!
