    URGENT: CJ and sub-affiliates
    Hi. Please help me with this information. I have been looking for it all over the internet the whole day today, and I am on a deadline. Could you tell me if:

    1) CJ allows its affiliates to have sub-affiliates
    2) CJ allows two-tier programs(this question is probably same as the first
    question)
    3) CJ allows referral programs

    I am particularly interested in knowing about sub-affiliates. Also, if CJ does allow sub-affiliates, why would any publisher work as an affiliate for me rather than work directly as a CJ affiliate? It wouldn't make any sense for me to offer commission higher than what was offered by the Advertiser originally. And if the commission I pay is lower, why would the sub-affiliate work for me?

    Looking eagerly forward to your reply.

    'Super' affiliates like these have sub-affilates promoting 1000's of merchants located at CJ & other networks.

    why would the sub-affiliate work for me? (them) rather than work directly as a CJ affiliate
    Either because the links become easier to manage, or because the sub-affiliate can't get into the program directly*

    *(the 'middleman' affiliate still needs to respect the merchants wishes on who can promote their business of course)

    I think these companies have special partnerships with the merchants or networks, you probably need something similar if you want to start your own.

    Thank you for your reply. Could you kindly tell me a little more about how links may become easier if you join as a sub-affiliate? Also, since networks like CJ are very easy to join, why would a sub-affiliate not be able to get into a program directly? Looking forward to your reply.

    you post just merchant site direct URLs to your webpages

    no need to care what/which affiliate codes to put on your webpages;
    no need to worry if your affiliate code has been expired or not;
    no need to worry if affiliate program switching network.
