January 18th, 2006, 02:27 PM #1New Merchant at CJ...Who picks these categories???
Did anyone notice the new merchant at CJ this morning, Paralyzed Veterans of America?
Guess what category they are under?
I'm sure the folks at Paralyzed Veterans of America will not be too happy about that. There is nothing entertaining about being a paralyzed vet.
This has happened before and I have complained about it before. Someone at CJ needs to guide these new merchants and provide/suggest appropriate category options for them place their company under.
For example, Collections, Etc, new on the 13th, is listed under Garden when very few of their items are actually garden items and are interior items.

I spit my coffee out all over my keyboard when I logged into CJ this morning.
Then I figured it must be because they were selling tickets to entertainment events in order to support them. But nope. Doesn't look that way.
So I don't know Ron. It seems pretty stupid, if not disrespectful, to me. And I'm the least PC guy I know.

Someone must have read my post, it just got changed to Business-to-business category.
Makes you wonder who checks these things when they are imputing them at CJ.

I noticed the same thing yesterday morning. Linkshare is even worse at this than CJ is. They mischategorize merchants all the time.
As to the Paralyzed Veterans affiliate program, I have a REAL problem with any website promoting a charity for compensation. If you were the donor, wouldn't you be upset if you learned that the website was being paid 26% of your contribution and on top of that, administration fees were being paid to the network. This "charity" says that 34% of their contributions received go to administration costs. I would NEVER contribute to a charity with such a significant portion not benefitting the purpose of my contribution.

Yes, this is like some of the campaign merchants that have come and gone in the past.

Yes, March of Dimes has launched on Kolimbo. Let me point out that Kolimbo has no network fee's, we are running and managing their program at a special rate (around an 80% discount) plus affiliates don't actually earn money - they earn an annual entitlement to write off a donation in their taxes. You can find out more about the program here - http://www.kolimbo.com/merchants/cli...?ClientID=2406
If you want to know more about March of Dimes and how their charity is run then visit Give.org - http://www.give.org/reports/report.a...4&ReportType=1 - you can also research hundreds of other charities.
