    Contacting a Merchant without being Approved
    In cj after you apply if you are placed on pending, you can go to mail and shoo them an email

    Can you do this in shareasale and if so where?

    I kind of wish shareasale was laid out like cj

    Go to Activity Summary and you will see the merchant as "pending". On the right, there will be a "Contact" link. Click that and an email message box will come up.

    Not me There are good and bad things about all the network interfaces and I find Shareasale pretty easy to navigate.

    The one great feature that CJ has that I've seen no other network offer is the combined product search among all merchants.

    Not me. I like it just the way it is. Easy to navigate and seems much faster than CJ.

    You could always click through to the merchant's store and get contact information there, but many store's contact emails will not be read by anyone involved with the affiliating efforts. Sometimes thay will have an "Affiliates" page with other contact info. It is always a good idea to click through to the store anyway, it has helped me to not waste efforts many times.

    It's often a good idea to contact the merchant while the app is pending, to make sure they know which site they're intended to go on. Some merchants can just look at the "main" affiliate site and figure it isn't on topic, when there might be others that are perfect, had they looked.

    If a merchant contact person is impossible to reach, maybe think twice about promoting them.

    They've got that box now, where you can put that info in when you join:

    You likely have many different promotional methods, so in order to speed up the application approval process, you may list in the box below a general marketing plan for this merchant.

    This could include which of your websites you will use, PPC terms, etc...

    This is optional and is designed to help speed up approval...
