    CJ is not doing any new data feeds at this time. I asked to activate my account for the feeds. Here is the answer I got from them:

    "We are unfortunately unable to supply you with this functionality at this time. Due to product upgrades, we are unable to supply any new datafeeds at this time. We will keep your request on file and when the functionality is in place we will be contacting you."

    You have got to be kidding. What do they mean, they can't supply it at this time? Isn't it their job to supply it to us?

    And they did not even give you a time frame?

    One hopes they are in process of converting the current massive datafeed into smaller (per-merchant) chunks per request of ABW members.

    One does not, however, assume.

    I asked for ETA. The answer was sometime in the second quarter, may be earlier.

    CJ has got to be kidding. All this talk these days about datafeeds and they are dropping the ball without telling ALL of us?

    Come on CJ, I've said this before and emailed you many times, get with the program and work on your affiliate public relations. You have a great program, great payments, but there are some areas (like affiliate PR) where you just don't get it.

    The change in CJ's datafeed policy doesn't effect the datafeed I provide directly from BackcountryStore.com. If you are already a BackcountryStore.com affiliate or want to be, contact me directly about signing up for our datafeed. It's distributed outside of CJ - which means it's pretty reliable.

    Thanks,

    Bryan

    KCEdit,

    Bryan does a great job getting his updated datafeeds out regularly. You will be very pleased.

    Ron - Thanks. I appreciate the feedback.

    KC - I've got you signed up. The full feeds go out on Tuesday's and Friday's. I sent you Tuesday's via email about two minutes ago. Let me know if I can do anything else to help you out.

    I used CJ's Ask A Question service today and got a response regarding the datafeed issue. Looks like it will be March sometime before they let anyone sign up for datafeeds.

    Todd:

    Can please give us some "insider information" on why CJ stopped activating any new data feed? Are we expecting something new and good this time? Is there any ETA on this?

    Thanks in advance

    KC
