    T-Mobile USA Issue
    I am awaiting clarification on this from the merchant, but in the meantime I would use caution in running a T-Mobile campaign.

    The commission structure is such that a customer must ACTIVATE the purchase withing seven days of placing the order in order for an affiliate to be compensated.

    Since I have 6 years of experience selling for Verizon and Cingular, I would suggest that including shipping time, that will be cutting it VERY close. I would say 10-15 days would be a fairer cookie length for the second part of the action.

    I will post again when I see the T-Mobile response.

    There's a lot of things I'm noticing on new CJ merchants. May not effect anyone, but I'm starting a new thread on it.

    I got a response fairly quickly. He indicated that all phones ship active, so that isn't an issue. So they should be ok. Sounds like though (although I'm awaiting another email on this), that if a phone is on backorder for more than seven days (since it won't ship), we could still be SOL.

    I'll let you know what T-Mobile has to say on that as well.

    Forgot to post this... They had a very odd response to my second question... In fact, it was a non answer. So I'd still be wary of that 7 day cookie... I have better things to worry about these days
