    Here's what I sent to CJ Today...

    "Hi,

    I am a Publisher coded"**CONCEALED" and have to complain about your apathy to taking action against Merchant Fraud and particularly the excessive amount of "Reversed Sales".

    I also sell products myself online for 6 industries and never saw such a reversal history.

    I am sorry to say that your integrity is being jeopardized
    all over the internet."

    Please share with the public your views on this matter.

    I like the way you worded your email, and applaud your efforts. However, I can't say that any of the vote options apply to me..

    1) Saying that CJ reverses sales is incorrect
    2) Some merchants I love working with under CJ, others are on the verge. I can't make a blanket statement as to how I view being a publisher.

    Cheers!

    Vertygo,

    Thanks for your comments.

    You are partially right about my poll, but...

    Once we get about 200 votes, we'll extract some critical data about how Publishers really "feel" in this Network.

    For example we'll see if Publishers feel that CJ has a merit of responsibility in reversed transactions; like for not taking drastic action in asking for "proof".

    Again, thanks for your view - your opinion counts

    I picked "I am doing relatively OK with CJ as a publisher"

    The emphasis on "relatively"...like compared to Befree, LS, etc.

    Exception being Performics, which I am recently joined, and am doing very well with. So, the wording "relatively OK" could change my vote tomorrow.

    I'm sure there has been numerous e-mails such as the one you sent CJ. Every response I've ever read from CJ on this issue has always passed the responsibility back to the affiliate... like "just don't promote the merchant any longer", "you guys love your conspiracy theories", etc.

    Did you have your CJ links up when you e-mailed? Replace a good number of them (if not all) with other programs, then try again.

    Seriously, if CJ is going to tell you, "just don't promote them"...they obviously know that most are not going to follow that advise...and so is the case.

    Kelly, I have my links up but just applied to Performics.

    I hope they have some good automotive and fitness merchants.

    At the time being, I selectively remove some CJ merchants with other Networks.

    To be more specific here are my stats for this year in CJ!
    Totals $708.66 Sales:60 Clicks: 18,695 Impressions:412,528

    Aren't those numbers tragic?

    I squeeze at least 100 times more revenue selling my own products, than CJ's.
