    Boscov's leaving BeFree, it'll be all CJ
    Got an email, and all BFAST links will stop working effective Jan. 16th.

    It's all migrated over to CJ, including Dynamic PSC and GoldenCan.

    They'd best throw all their BF affiliuates a bone to reward all the changeover link coding. I recommend they forego the 4th click penality in GoldenCan as a carrot.

    BFree----CJ
    Is BFree closing completely???? Seems that other merchant programs are switching from BFree to CJ also.

    looks like it is being very very gradually phased out or into something else. it was bought by the same holding company that owns CJ. who knows what they ultimately intend doing with it.

    That's an excellent idea!

    I'm not an aff of theirs - if you're an aff of theirs, I'd suggest this to their AM.

    BeFree has told me that they are no longer making any updates to BeFree, but that there is no plan to turn it off for a couple of years. In the meantime they are strongly encouraging all of the remaining merchants to migrate their programs to CJ.

    I think CJ wants to get rid of befree too.
    They've mentioned that we should bug the stores to make the change to CJ.

    Value Click is trying to migrate all BeFree merchants to the CJ platform. The migration has been slow for many reasons but most notably the lack of resources on the merchant side to see a complete migration through to completion. I'm sure many publishers would see more value in working with CJ who in my opinion offers better tracking, reporting and payout consistency.
