    I got email from eTronics as though I was a regular affiliate of theirs. I'm not, and the CJ interface shows it several ways.

    But I clicked on a link to a creative in the email and it took me right to a CJ page with the link all set up with one of my CJ IDs. It wasn't necessary to log in, either.

    Soooooo, if I bit on this and put up the link would I get credit for a sale?

    Seems a little odd, because if not, there is something fishy going on here.

    It sounds to me like the CJ interface automatically put your PID in the links.

    As for you not having to log in, you probably were *already* logged in. It doesn't require you to re-log in if you already are. Otherwise, it's supposed to make you log in whether you're in a particular program or not...

    To get any commissions off of running that link, you would still have to join the program. If you don't, it's free sales for eTronics!

    Doesn't seem ethical to me. By the way, I always sign off from CJ when I leave.

    I think this is a trap of sorts, on purpose or not.
