    Payment delay notice
    Publisher Payment Update



    Commission Junction strives to issue payments to publishers on or around the 20th. Publisher payments for this month’s pay cycle will begin being issued on Monday, October 23, 2006 and continue through Thursday, October 26, 2006. If you receive your payment by direct deposit, note that the time required for direct deposit to post will vary by bank and country of residence. Checks will be issued in this same time frame. Postal times for delivery will vary. For publishers who would like to change their method of payment to direct deposit simply go to the Account/Administrative Settings tab in your CJ Account Manager.

    After how many years, they still cannot get a handle on a mundane task like making payments according to a predetermined schedule. It never ends.

    And we are still to believe that other functions are infallible?

    What is payment was already deducted from account yesterday? Does that mean you will need to wait until Monday thru Thursday to get payment?

    YES.

    Anything to keep our money longer in THEIR bank. These crooks had money and time to waste on LMI but they can't improve their payment system. They are just a bunch of thieves.

    I predict (hopefully accurately) that those, like myself and a few others, that had their balances drop on thursday will be paid on monday. Though I don't think it will happen on monday for anyone whose balance has not dropped.

    I have been known to be wrong before... just ask my wife.

    This is really, really bad for me. I am not sure that I will have sufficient cash (or enugh credit) to run my business until the 23rd, let alone the 26th.

    "Commission Junction strives to issue payments to publishers on or around the 20th."

    Just make the 20th into the last day of the month and I've found it's the best way to look at things. I think only once in the past 5 years have I had a payment not make it by the end of the month.

    Just wanted to take a look at when payment has been sent over the years since there have been some posts on how they can't handle sending payments on time etc but I don't ever remember those problems. The one where I thought was late once was a second check noted below. Payment sent dates look good, so in the 5+ years I've been at CJ, I've always gotten a check each month:

    Ummm "Date Sent" as displayed in CJ interface does not mean "Date Sent".

    The list above indicates that it has been a full year since the last time they were more than one day behind on "sending". Au contraire.

    It looks pretty accurate to me. So how many times have you not had payment in hand by the end of the month? Me zero, I've always had a check in hand every single month by the end of the month.

    I think they should also tell us WHY - what causes these delays?

    Is it the same thing each time?

    Is the person who does A/P sick a lot.

    Does somone at CJ have a gambling problem?

    If we're not going to get our pay when we're supposed to, it would be appropraite to know the reason.

    If I owned a little print shop on the corner, and on Friday (payday) I handed all my employees a note that said "While I strive to be timely in your weekly paychecks..." INSTEAD of their pay...

    I would owe them an explanation

    I don't need a listing TO SEE something is wrong with CJ.
    I got a check or a direct deposit every month since they are in business and the old CJ never did that. They would have kept a team working at night or during the week-end to pay their affiliates on or before the 20th. They have never been late ALL these years.
    With the new CJ and their crooked management, it's one problem after an other. This shows a TOTAL disrespect for their affiliates.

    What are you talking about? What date did the new CJ start? This year looks fine:

    21-Sep-2006
    21-Aug-2006
    20-Jul-2006
    20-Jun-2006
    19-May-2006
    20-Apr-2006
    21-Mar-2006
    20-Feb-2006
    18-Jan-2006

    "Commission Junction strives to issue payments to publishers on or around the 20th. "

    On or around. The dates are all on the 20th or around the 20th.

    And then from inside CJ, it talks about payment:

    "Payment Method
    Checks are processed beginning on the 20th of every month for the previous month's balance. This means that after a withdrawal is made to process a check, the money which has been earned during the current month will remain in the account.

    In other words, if you earn no less than your minimum payment amount (as listed below) in November, you will be paid that amount at the end of December. After the payment for November is withdrawn you will still see money in your account, (i.e., whatever money you earned during the month of December)."

    Notice this part in the example CJ gives:

    "you will be paid that amount at the end of December"

    end of, by the end of

    What's so hard to understand?

    I have a nice balance but it didn't drop.

    Do you think CJ will issue checks on Monday the 23rd or one day next week?

    Thanks in advance.

    You'll have it by the end of the month as usual. I edited my post above and added some info from CJ. Read it carefully, especially by the end of part.

    Sometimes the 20th falls on the weekend, and it's doubtful they'll pay overtime to process checks so it would be Monday. Besides, do we know if they process the checks inhouse or transmit the data to be processed and mailed by an outsourced provider? Many companies outsource payroll, etc. to specialty firms for handling and payment.

    They should just say on or around the 25th, and if it's earlier it'll make everyone happy.

    If something is not wrong, they do not post an "Alert".

    They were a few days behind before:

    25-Aug-2005

    Still had money by the end of the month.

    "Publisher payments for this month’s pay cycle will begin being issued on Monday, October 23, 2006 and continue through Thursday, October 26, 2006"

    So you'll get paid a few days later than normally and by the end of the month as they say inside CJ.

    I am sick and tired of seeing people say.

    OH NO I DON'T KNOW IF I WILL HAVE ENOUGH CASH TO RUN MY BUSINESS IF I AM NOT PAID ON TIME

    Give me a break if you're living paycheck to paycheck you're doing something wrong and probably need a day job.

    It's not like they are late anyway. The 20th is payday falls on a Friday. Chances are none of us would of seen money until Monday anyway.

    No, you would owe an explanation and some fine money to the state labor board. Failing to pay employees on time might also trigger defaults on your line of credit and bank loans, and may also trigger defaults on your franchise agreement, permits and licenses, etc. You'd also expect some of your employees may not show up on Monday (and perhaps never again), and even if you pay everyone on Monday, you are going to lose some employees who seek job security elsewhere. Unpaid employees may also be entitled to file for unemployment compensation. Oh, yes, and they may pilfer your inventory (not legally, of course).

    I once worked for an employer whose payroll checks would bounce once or twice each year. Paychecks were distributed at 10:30 Thursday morning, and 90% of employees left right then for an early lunch to deposit their paychecks. After I quit, I did independent-contractor work and one of my checks bounced; they covered the check, but I never worked for them again.

    Affiliates are not employees. We are entitled to payment, and when payment is late we can demand an explanation (but we can't complain to the state labor board). If we don't like the company's explanation, we can consider ending our relationship with the late-paying company. We might also negotiate new terms, such as late-fee and interest when payments are delayed.

    In fairness to Commission Junction, when I looked at their direct deposits to my bank account over the past year, I saw nothing objectionable - the transactions posted to my account during most months on the 21st or 22nd, and occasionally on the 23rd of the month.

    If this month's deposit is credited on the 24th or 26th, I might be a tiny bit more concerned about doing business with CJ. But if that were my standard for quitting, I would have pulled the plug on many indy merchants long ago.

    Keep in mind, I am in the process of removing all CommissionJunction links from all my sites, as I despise the company and no longer want to do business with them. But payment on the 23rd is not in my "top ten" or "top twenty" complaints.

    I hope this was intended as a joke. If you are running your business so "close to the wire" that a payment delay of 3 to 6 days is going to shut you down, you have problems that CJ couldn't possibly solve.

    Yes, I know we all get into financial pinches, and I've occasionally found myself in the situation where I've expected payment and then had to pay some late fees and interest because the money didn't come in (and in some cases, the money *never* came in, though more often it comes in a week or a month late).

    And I am sick and tired of seeing posts like this where you feel the need to bust someone's balls because of their financial situation knowin' you ain't up in their bank account.
