    Question Manager / Merchant - What fields do you have?
    Greetings Affiliate Managers, Merchants at CJ!

    Can one of ya provide what types of fields are available when you are inputting "TEXT Link" of coupons, sales, deals etc into CJ?

    Do they have a space for just the coupon?

    I assume there are fields for Description, Promo Start Date, End Date, Category, Promo Type.



    Thanks!

    Text, link , type (promo) and that's about it. No start, stop. You can choose to allow link destination change and force javascript. Coupon code is part of the link or redirect if the merchant pushes it to the cart.

    Thumbs up
    Compared with the other affiliate networks, is CJ behind/lacking or is this the normal setup?

    Thanks for answering and giving some insight on how things are on the merchant / affiliate manager side.

    They are way behind other networks for the level of tools and fields for links. Their reporting is speedy compared to other networks though. But you can only go back 90 days for details other than summaries. They are the biggest network outside of a Clickbank.

    Question
    Do they have some option to setup the dates?

    I'm using the CJ API and I do see coupon type offers that have the correct promo dates!

    Code:
      <*promotion-end-date>2011-10-03 00:00:00.0<*/promotion-end-date> 
      <*promotion-start-date>2011-09-27 00:00:00.0<*/promotion-start-date> 
      <*promotion-type>free shipping<*/promotion-type>

    Thanks!

    Yeah CJ has a promo date option. Select coupon from the "Promotion" drop down box and then there's an option for "On-going" promo or "Set Promotion to Start and End". If they choose the 2nd option, they can then pick beginning and end dates for the coupon code.

    This field, <*promotion-type>free shipping<*/promotion-type>, would be filled with coupon in my example.

    They also offer free shipping as shown above along with sweepstakes, hot product, sale/discount, and seasonal.

    Thanks
