    How do you check a CJ's merchant's cookie duration?

    They say it's 45 days, I just want to make sure.

    Most set those 45 day cookies to expire after the first sale. The cookie length at CJ has no meaning if the merchant chooses "keep cookie=no" (the default). That is one of the things ABW requested at today's network meeting.

    we are already a long time with CJ and had no idea about cookie elimination after the first sale.

    nowhere have I noted in the CJ site any mention of this possibility for merchants - and the realisation that the default is "keep cookie=no" has come as a sock.

    if this is so, the CJ literature is grossly misleading, and thus open to litigation, irrespective of whether this is mentioned deep in their affiliate agreement or not.

    I wonder about the ethics of this setup (CJ) more and more by the day - and also wonder how far the affiliate world has to go before the act is cleaned up. I would not be surprised if the regulators, already aware of the shady situation in the "affiliate environment" decide to put some order in this rip-off which affects hundreds of thousands of affiliates.

    what is the situation at other networks?
