    I belong to CJ, but my question applies to affiliate networks in general.

    This may seem like a stupid question, but is there any restriction against joining multiple networks? People on these boards seem to indicate they belong to multiple ones, but I don't know if they are going "under the radar" or through some other arrangement. Thanks for any help.

    As far I know there is no such restriction. You are free to join as many Networks you want without any obligation to others.

    I, myself is currently registered with 4 of them. I am sure there must be affiliates here registered with much more networks than that.

    Right guys?

    Some networks require exclusivity from MERCHANTS, but none require exclusivity from affiliates.

    I don't know of any individual affiliate programs that require exclusivity, either. There used to be one that I knew of, but the affiliate manager that implemented that is gone and the new affiliate manager reversed that decision.

    I am also trying to find out which networks a merchant can use together and which ones are exclusive..... ex. Does ClickBank conflict with Shareasale? TIA

    Ditto on the posts from my2cents, ahmar and MichaelColey. As far as I know, you can join as many networks as you like. Just a caution not to spread yourself too thin. There are a lot of programs out there that are not worth the effort (poor conversion rates, no support, etc.).

    There's no restriction, but if your site takes off it may be that a merchant might approach you for exclusivity in return for enhanced commission.. only happened to me once and I declined.

    AdSense is a different matter. There are lots of restrictions on how you can mix AdSense and other ads, but for everything else it should be fine.

    I belong to more than one network, as I believe most of us do. I've only had one instance where a merchant required that none of their competitors were mentioned on the same page. But I've never been told by a network that I could not use other networks.

    There is no problem with belonging to multiple networks... but you should be careful about how you promote the merchants. Occasionally in the T&Cs of a merchant you will see clauses saying that you cannot promote other merchants selling the same products on the same web page...
