    Question Petco doesn't pay affiliates and stays active?
    I haven't got my October earnings from Petco.com again (happens third time this year) and was told by CJ just now that the reason is that Petco hasn't recharged its account up to now. When I asked how can Petco then be still active in CJ and get sales if they don't pay affiliates, CJ support answered that CJ will not stop any merchant whetever long time advertiser doesn't pay and I am free to remove their links! Is it really true?? I get email notifications now and then about other advertisers being deactivated and reactivated, and I was pretty sure it happens when they have issue with recharge...

    CJ declared they would not do anything about the problem. Anyone has an idea what to do? I tried to contact Petco affiliate manager about that, no answer yet..

    Best thing to do is to post about it here.. That way, affiliates putting the finishing touches on a pet themed website *cough* might think about steering clear of Petco..

    A quick updated for those who may be interested in Petco. After investigation Petco affiliate manager made with CJ it turned out "This was an administrative error and not a matter of lack of funds. There is no trend of non-payment from PETCO".
    CJ first promised to issue the missing payment yesterday, now it is scheduled for the end of the week...

    Webaurora, if things don't work out with PetCo send me an email and I can recommend an alternative.

    I have to say this same thing happened to me last year. CJ screwed up and shut our account down 2 times during December. It was ridiculous being treated like that and we've sinced moved to LinkShare.

    That can be an expensive screw up.

    Yeah, no kidding Leeann.
    But at least I am totally beating last year's numbers! Easy to do with our program not being turned off for 4 days.
