    How long to wait for approval?
    There's a merchant in cj whom I applied for more than a month back. After waiting for several days, I sent an email to the AM but didn't get a reply back.
    Is it time to move on?

    Only if you don't mind working with a merchant who doesn't reply to emails if you have problems/questions somewhere down the road.

    The only reason I wanted to signup with them was cause I felt they have potential to help me earn good money

    I've also read here that even if the AM is not responsive to your emails, it may mean that the program is so popular that the AM doesn't have time for newbies like me

    I still think that the program itself is good though.

    I have a related question. If you apply to a program and it just sits there in pending forever, is there some way to just get it off the pending list? I've looked around some, but it's really more annoying to see it there than it is critical that I remove it. I just wondered if anyone knew.

    I figure if they can't be bothered to reply in a day or two, considering any world circumstances that might be going on, then move on. After a full month, I wouldn't even consider it if they finally got around to me.

    Judi,

    One thing you can try is to write an email to their AM informing about the pending application. Tell them you have targeted traffic for this program.

    cheers!

    I have 2 that have been setting in my waiting on approval box for over a year. I moved on long ago. Every once in awhile I notice them setting there and I also wonder if there's a way to remove them. I wonder if I reapplied if it would make them notice the pending account.

    I popped into CJ and looked for an email address - none listed for this advertiser, so I just sent a note to affiliate at...... I just asked them to stop in and reject me to get it off my control panel. I don't think I'll get anywhere, since the mailbox I made up probably won't get past the catch-all filter.

    Merchant unresponsiveness to affiliates is always a bad sign. Move on!

    Thanks for everyone's replies. Found a competing merchant and signed up with them.
