    I am considering joining on with CJ and want to know if anyone out there knows what the advantages and disadvantages are of the other competitors, ie BeFree and LinkShare. Can any of you affiliate veterans help??

    Thanks!

    Basically, the big advantage to CJ is the consolidated payments from many merchants vs. the individualized payment scheme used at the other two. i.e. typically a merchant at the other two will have a minimum payment of $25 to $50, so you'd need $500 to $1000 in sales at 5% to get a check from any one of them. Conversely, you could have 1 sale each of $50 at that same 5% from 10 different merchants at CJ and still get a $25 check in the mail the following month.

    i like to receive one check only from cj rather than hundreds of checks from Befree and Linkshare.

    Think about the
    1. high risk of postal delivery error when you need to receive many checks monthly.
    2. time to open many envelopes
    3. time to do accounting record keeping for each individual check received

    unless you partner with only a few selected merchants only from Befree and Linkshare.

    If you have the in-house resources to pay affiliates yourself. Go with BeFree or Linkshare.

    If not, go with Performics or CJ.

    If you have no budget go with ShareASale or Clixgalore.

    webtraitor are you an affiliate or a merchant?
    I'm guessing merchant.

    What kind of budget, what are your goals, etc?

    Perhaps with a few more details you may get some better input.
