    What the Heck is this?
    I just logged in and my balance had increased by $33.80. I ran reports for sales today and posting today, and the amount didn't show up.

    Then I went back to my summary page and down at the bottom next to "FEES" was the $33.80 amount. What fees is CJ adding to my account balance?

    I've never seen the Fees before, it could have been there and I've missed it all these years but I see something next to that as well and it's listed as a credit. Not sure for what.

    I've never seen that before, either. But, I'll definitely be double-checking my accounts for them now.

    Thanks for the heads-up!

    Mine says credit too, and when I click on the amount link, and then the detail link it says "Advertiser Unknown."

    I just got in and checked stats, mine has one as well. Could be something from lost tracking.. oh wait tracking is not effected. But putting it in the fees seems odd.

    Where do you see it. Though my balance increased by around $30, I can't seem to find it in any reports.

    Which reports are you guys looking at.

    After you login click Run Reports then scroll down to Current Balance (February, 2009) - Fees

    Yes, I see it now. Its also there in the Transaction Report for today. But there it doesn't say fees.

    Looks like Santa dropped by today at CJ.

    I am sure it will be reversed soon. Must be a glitch.

    I asked in Twitter and somebody asked if lawsuit settlements were being pushed thru, not sure if that is it or not but reading below, looks like it could be it. Some details on that -

    "The monetary payment due to each Publisher shall be made by depositing the amount due into the Publisher's Commission Junction account. The monetary payment due to each Advertiser shall be made by applying a credit to the Advertiser's Commission Junction account, to be applied against future transaction fees that would otherwise be owed to Commission Junction. "

    Yeah, I see one there too. Advertiser "unknown", Type "credit".

    I don't mind if it is "fee" or "credit", as long as they don't reverse it later on

    Did you make any commissions or have links up from CJ on your site from April 20, 2003 - July 22, 2008? If it is the settlement then:

    "The Settlement Class includes all persons and entities who, between April 20, 2003 and July 22, 2008, either (a) hosted ads on, or had ads hosted on, Defendants' online affiliate marketing network, or (b) paid or received commissions pursuant to a publisher service agreement with Defendants for affiliate marketing management services."

    I was just coming to post that I think it might be the settlement from the lawsuit, but I see it's already been mentioned here.

    CJ is being awfully cagey, listing it as an unknown credit and not sending out an email or posting a message on the front page. Were they hoping we wouldn't notice? (Unbelievable.)

    Could this be the settlement for the lawsuit?

    If that is what it is, that is disgusting; a piss-poor penny-ante payout! (payoff?)

    I wonder if I'll get any since I don't belong to that network anymore.
    Probably be like the BeFree buy out, money lost on that deal too.

    I saw that "fee" today too.

    I've posed the question to my CJ rep and will post here tomorrow if they get back to me with anything regarding the lawsuit.

    I believe that is what Haiko has been saying since the announcement. Not worth letting them off the hook over the tiny amount we're getting.

    If this is "to be applied against future transaction fees that would otherwise be owed to Commission Junction." what fees do we normally have to pay CJ? The last thing I paid them, begrudgingly, was for the data feeds a couple years ago.

    Maybe I'll treat myself to something off clickbank that I've been eyeing. Feed the parasite economy sort of thing.

    I have over $100 in fees but if this is from the lawsuit it's ridiculous. It is such a minuscule percentage of the sales that I made during that period.

    I hope we get an answer soon. Thank you to the people posting here or I would be totally dumbfounded by this.

    I received confirmation today from CJ that the money is from the settlement.

    http://www.cjsettlement.com/faq1.html

    The fact they settled means they stood to lose much more if the case went to trial and they lost, right?

    Yeah it's a small percentage of the pie, but we all had the option to opt out of the class action and pursue our own remedy.
