    Will the CJ & BeFree Networks ever be merged into one single entiity, or will they always be kept separate?

    The feature I would like is to have access to BeFree merchants THROUGH the CJ network.

    They're supposed to merged into one, but who knows, just have to wait and see what happens.

    I would really hate to see that happen. CJ has the worst interface for making individual product links. Linkshare and Befree are much faster. The only good thing I see about CJ is the real time reporting.
    How does the merchant see it? Seems like Befree has more big name clients than CJ. Why is that?

    Cuz CJ scarfed all the good merchants and left the oversaturated ultracompetitive junk ones for the other networks

    (Sorry, I don't know the serious answer.)

    I'll second that. As for making individual product links, I like CJ's method. Namely, the datafeed! The times I want to fish out ONE little product link are so rare that differences in the interface there aren't that big of a deal to me (except for Performics which stands out as a huge pain!). BeFree's got feeds, too, but there seems to be a lot less of them there than at CJ.

    Theoretically we get the best of both worlds, and they chuck the worst. Hopefully that is the case.

    CJ also said they'd finally be getting rid of that horrible pop-up interface. Is this the start of a new trend towards a better interface?

    Unfortunately you have to have to hit a mimimum in sales for the CJ datafeed. At least at Befre you don't and I can really tell the difference commission wise
