    Unhappy Outdoor Decor closing account
    Just got noticed that they are closing their affiliate program at CJ...lots of links to pull...and from the sound of the email - it looks like they aren't moving anywhere else ie they are closing the affiliate account for good.

    "Dear Affiliates,
    We have decided to close our affiliate program. You should be getting a notice from CJ soon..."

    I was one of their top affiliates for years. I made some serious money with them but I gave up these last few years. Too much competition, duplicate content everywhere, it was not worth my time anymore.
    Hope they will pay their balance in CJ. I'm going to miss them and their product line.

    I sent Nate an email and inquired as to whether a move to ShareASale was out of the question. Perhaps if other affiliates chimed in too, it might happen.

    Why do affiliate merchants do this?

    Ulta Cosmetics left CJ -- have they gone anywhere else? Why stop a great program?

    For some, it could be the increased minimum network fees. A couple years ago, CJ raised their minimum monthly network fees from $250/month to $500/month. At the time, they grandfathered their older merchants. This month, they're raising the minimum network fee on their old merchants up to $500/month.

    For merchants paying $1667 or more per month in commissions, the minimum monthly network fee isn't an issue. For smaller merchants, it could be costly.

    ShareASale.com is certainly an excellent alternative for these smaller merchants. With a $350 network access fee, 20% network fee, and $25 monthly minimum network fee, they're incredibly affordable.

    You're not crazy.

    Dear Affiliates,

    For some time we have been offering an option of a private datafeed. We are now evaluating the effectiveness of this. If you are using this feed, please let us know how helpful it is as we decide how to best proceed.
    Dear Affiliates,

    After review, we have decided to end our private datafeed. From now on, please use the datafeed of our products that is offered through CJ.
