    I still have not been able to find a way with the new interface to do a search and be able to easily compare commissions across merchants. Am I missing something?

    Tricia, I'm relatively sure that you haven't found it because anything actually useable doesn't exist.

    You can do a search for merchants and get a list that shows EPC and the basic commission rate, but for any details beyond something like "4%-6%" you have to drill down under each merchant's section into "Program Terms".

    I think I figured out what I don't like about the lists with the new interface now that I look at it. I can't easily tell if I have been approved/rejected/pending for programs without scrolling to the left or hovering over icons.

    Guess I had better get used to it!!

    Fortunately, I've only got a few merchants there that I care about - and I won't be joining any others.

    I had a discussion before with CJ on how we use the old links interface to find advertisers that support specific features like coupons and datafeeds. I was assured that this functionality was going to make it into the Advertiser search. I don't see it... Also, you can't download the advertiser search results. Also, the advertiser search results still has that horrible infinite scroll feature so that it is impossible to keep your place.

    Honestly, with the old links UI gone, I don't really want to look for new merchant candidates on CJ. It will be too much of a pain in the butt. How can CJ permit such blatant problems with the UI to persist?
    Merchants, any data you provide to Google Shopping should also be in your affiliate network datafeed. More data means more sales!

    Have you tried to 'right click and save' a banner?

    They use that damn auto-preview. Can't just see the full banner. When you host your own creatives, so they can actually be TARGETED, it just takes too damn long with too many steps to be efficient.

    I lost count how many steps additionally it takes to do the same job as before.

    MERCHANTS should be pissed that their affiliates can't have the tools to market them, much less market them effectively...
