    what are the steps to take if you have a non-paying merchant?
    Any thoughts here would be great.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Are you talking about a non-paying CJ merchant? Or just in general? (If in general, look through the posts referenced in this recent thread.)

    Step #1 - find the delete or drop and click it!
    Step #2 - remove all the links to that merchant asap!
    Step #3 - out the crook here!
    Step #4 - try to get your one way , or the other
    Step #5 - take notes and move on

    Step #6 - welcome to the affiliate marketing game!

    Step #7 - learn from your own mistakes!

    Step #8 - but, don't just drop one of your makers, just because you read about it from some one else

    Step #9 - it's better to be late, and get there some day, than dying to be the #1 and never make it!

    Step #10 - if you're still reading this, just dump that non-paying paying stupid merchant!


    and continue to

    The above methods will get you just about as much success, but I've found in the past that CJ is not very proactive about helping affiliates with lost sales. In one case where a merchant was behind for several months (and CJ allowed it), then left CJ, I contacted the president of the company directly (google is wonderful) and suggested he pay before myself and others contacted the BBB. I had a check in less than month.

    Money due should be paid. If it is substantial, take the time to do just a little bit of work to get what you earned.

    Lots of leg work but it gets the job done.
