    Question Some CJ Advertisers can still use html links as default ?
    Some CJ Advertisers can still use html links as default ?

    I discovered a few advertisers that there is no JS links for you when you try to retrieve links. All you can get is the old format html links.

    Is this normal ?

    Based on their opposition to LMI, I checked eBay. They don't have a JavaScript option. It went straight to the HTML (legacy) version of the link. Bravo!

    It's good to know that this is an option. I think it's time to start encouraging our merchants to choose that option and list those merchants who have chosen that option.

    I'm going to take a step of faith here and say that I will continue to actively support CJ merchants who opt out of the JavaScript option.

    I had the same thought last night, Michael, so I checked Ebay as well. I don't understand why Vrindivan doesn't want to share which merchants he's found. Seems very selfish to me.

    No No. Even i do not list here NOW, they will be known very soon.

    I just not sure if this is a secret deal between the (big?) advertiser and cj or
    this is a widely open option for ALL advertisers ??

    Or maybe there are some fishes escape the net, due to cj's mistake on link system migration ?

    We'll see. I just let one of my biggest CJ merchants know about it.

    Let us know of any merchants that use HTML links as default and I for one will promote them 100% more than other affiliates.

    I highly doubt that it's temporary for eBay. They seemed very strongly opposed to it.

    If enough merchants (especially large ones) opt out of it, it'll give CJ a pretty strong message.
