    Question for CJ-->Why do deactivated merchant links still click through to the merchant? I would much rather have it land on an expired merchant page or similar than have basically free click throughs to a deactivated merchant. It seems like a merchant could sign up for cj stay with them a while, let affiliates put links up then deactivate and still get the sales without paying commission on old links that are not removed.

    This is to help the deactivated merchants catch up on their financial situation so they can hopefully become active again.

    By providing them free traffic you help them toward the goal of becoming active. You are a good person for doing this.

    It looks better to your visitors than an Expired Merchant page... thats like getting a 404 more or less. We even leave deactivated merchants links up until we find proper replacements (or can delete them right away without hurting a page)
