    CJ commissions for May not locked yet?
    Is it just me or is CJ unusually late locking the sales commissions for the previous month. I don't recall them ever being this late in the past.

    My Zappo Shoes sales have been locked for two days now, but all of the others still says "new".

    I've been wondering what the heck is going on with that too. Something is broken.

    I think they normally lock between the 10th and the 13th.

    Some may lock between the 10 and 13th, or any other day of the month, depending on particular advertiser's terms. But those that "Lock on the 10th" lock on the 10th. Something is broken.

    It looks like they have just started to lock them. So hopefully all is well.

    I rarely make anything with CJ merchants. It happens I made a single commission in May that was pretty hefty, so I was eager about making sure when it was locked.

    It locked earlier today. Hooray! (I think?)

    Can anyone tell me the sequence or dates for after a commission "locks"?

    As I said above, I have only rarely earned commissions from CJ merchants. Now that the balance locked on a May commission -- when will I get paid? The commission was earned on a sale dated May 26 (as it happens, that was my anniversary and this commission was a nice anniversary "gift" for my wife and me LOL!).

    So will payment be coming in June? And what day in June do they normally pay out?

    I could swear I knew where to find information like this in that absurdly complicated CJ dashboard at one time. I've tried simply typing "payment date" or some such in the "Help" search function -- but no way I could find the info I needed??

    Thanks!

    Once a sale is locked, it is queue'd up to be sent out with the upcoming pay cycle, and will be paid out IF the advertiser has paid CJ in time for the payment to be distributed then. IOW... most commissions that are locked at this point will be paid out on the 20th of this month.

    Thanks, David. Very helpful.

    As I recall, this merchant is the only one on CJ that I've earned any commissions with before, and the merchant is pretty prompt, trustworthy, etc.

    So I'll count on the big bucks definitely this month.

    JUST KIDDING!! I'll counnt on the big bucks when and only if they get in my bank account. Call me skeptical, but ...

    It keeps changing up on me. Every few hours it is something different. I can't make heads or tales of it now.

    I now just sit back and wait to see what they send me. There system is complicated. It would be nice to see "Pending Payment" number.
