    I've read through a bunch of threads and can see lots of people doing it, but is there any way an advertiser could deny you commission for using AdWords to get the clicks? Has this happened before?

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Some merchants don't like it when you overbid them or bid on trademarks. You might want to play safe and email the AM before you start a campaign.

    Ask CJ.

    Some of their TOS could be *interpreted* to mean that this practice is forbidden.

    Yes, many affiliates are doing it (not my style though).

    Play it safe and get an answer from CJ, not from (ostensibly) anonymous forum users. What I say or what anybody else here says is pure hearsay and conjecture. Get an answer from CJ

    Ask the merchant. Most have no problem whatsoever with their affilites using adwords, some have restrictions like not bidding on thier TM and some let you bid on it but only a certain amount.

    Thanks everyone...I contacted three merchants and they all said it is OK except for bidding on their trademarks as keywords.
