    Which is better?
    For a merchant who has a program with Share A Sale and a program with CJ,
    The SAS terms being
    30 day cookies, 7.5% commission, SAS being a parasite free network

    The CJ terms being
    45 day cookies, 10% commission, 4 known parasites in their program

    Which would be the better choice?

    Would the parasites in the CJ program be able to hijack sales from the SAS program?

    I like the merchant but am really sick of the parasite infestation. Thought of switching to the SAS program instead if the parasites from the cj program would not affect my commissions from the sas program.

    SAS is cheaper than CJ for the merchant. I would be weary of any merchant who lowers their payout on SAS because they know it is parasite-free. If this is the reason they are paying less on SAS, I would drop them because they are playing games.

    If the parasite is not signed up with the merchant in CJ, I don't believe there is any way they could hijack your sale.

    If they are signed up with the parasite, then my guess is that there might be a way to hijack, such as with some sort of pop-up prompt, even if you are using SAS.

    What Scohaz said. Something's fishy when a merchant is paying less, on a network that costs less to be in!

    I suspect it is because in CJ, it is a commission is valid for one time only, that means within 45 days, if 2 purchases are made within 45 days, the affiliate does not get paid for the second sale,

    whereas in SAS, there is no mention of the number of commissions that might be paid during the commissionable 30 days, so I assume it would be unlimited occurences.

    Thanks.

    I was blinded by their past performance before the parasites got on board.

    Yes, now that you mention it, it does seem fishy. They are very keen on me promoting them more, which I can, but am deciding whether to do it on not.
