I was using Redplum links from another network and decided to switch to CJ since they had a better feed for them.
I looked at the terms when signed up for the program, it showed $0.0 per print. I emailed them and this is the response:
Since your site was new to the marketplace, we offered you our beginners level $0 Program Terms. To be considered for the $.01 per print program terms you must prove 10,000 unique visits per month in a 6 month period and do least 1000 coupon prints per month in a 6 month period with another coupon provider. When you can provide proof of the above, please reach back out to this email address and we will put you on the $.01 per print program terms.
Thank you for your interest and we look forward to hearing from you again!

So they want me to send them 10,000 free visitors for 6 months before I can get a penny per print? Seriously? And they want me to prove I am converting with other providers also?
How does CJ make their money off this program? Does CJ know they are doing this? Is this against some terms?

That is really odd. I just pulled them up in CJ myself. They actually have recorded EPC numbers, so someone must be making money somehow. I can't believe it's allowed to advertise a $0.00 flat rate though.

Bad management lesson number 1,235.

They may be trying to get affiliates to prove their traffic before being allowed into the program. Quite insulting to anyone who is in the business for more than a day!

What are they paying on the other network?
Apart from the total absurdity of their CJ terms, shouldn't they have seen your history with them on that other network and given it consideration in the move?

And their website home page at least is covered in adsense ads

Probably unmanaged! Undermanaged.

They are managed in house.
Not sure how they got the EPC they have if they have these requirements. Unless they somehow don't have to count traffic from $0 commish affiliates?
That would explain their rules, to keep up their EPC they will only pay those that bring in a certain amount of traffic?
I didn't see anything in their terms about these requirements, it was only after approval that I emailed and asked them about the $0 commish.
