    Commission Disparity
    A few days ago I looked at a merchant program on PJ in which I had interest, but I did not apply.

    Just now, I saw that that same merchant just opened a program on GAN.

    Their commission rate on PJ is 12%; on GAN it is 20%.

    How can they justify such a disparity?

    I think it has to do alot with management fees, when PJ open most of the clients who first setup on PJ were managed by PJ so they had to pay 2 fees to PJ one to be managed and one to the network.

    I have a merchant who is on PJ and paid me say 9%, after the droped PJ from managing their program the commision at PJ stayed at say 9% but they then setup on a new network say GAN and are now paying me say 15%.

    So I moved and now I am bring a few extra thousand a year just for changing networks.

    So maybe that is the same case with the merchant you are looking at???

    MERCHANTS: Start showing your coupons directly on your site, that way your shoppers will stop leaving your site looking for them!! If not then remove your Coupon Box!!

    On another note I see merchants on different network with different return days (cookies)

    This could have a lot to do with it.

    I also see merchants on different networks with different PPC policies - that is really strange.

    Sounds like PJ was charging a management fee that they discounted back to the affiliates on the other network. If you see a different cookie say shorter contact the merchant and as them to make them equal. As an OPM I push for the longest cookie possible and prefer 120 days with a minimum of 30. If we are successful after a year of management I will push for doubling the current cookie as further incentive for the affiliates.
