    High Ticket Items on CJ
    Hello guys, I'm still pretty new to the whole affiliate scene but something has just dawned on me a couple of moments ago. If you sell high price items your commission will be high...duh. Anyway, on the same topic I'd like to know what is the highest priced item that can be sold by an affiliate over CJ. Probably not practical but its nice to aim at something high

    I was under the impression that there was no per item max sale amount. But like my title says, I am just a newbie.

    I sold a few of these over time. That is a nice commission:

    So that's what a $500 commission?

    The problem with selling high-ticket items is that as the price goes up, customers want more and more reassurance that the company is legitimate and the item will be what they want. Many high-ticket sales transactions move "offline" or can't be tracked, for a variety of reasons:

    - sometimes the purchase must be done with a purchase order, or through a leasing company.

    - sometimes the research and purchase recommendation come from one employee, but then the actual transaction is initiated by someone else (purchasing department, supervisor, etc.) using a different computer.

    - sometimes the purchase requires a physical delivery and inspection before payment

    - sometimes the buyer just wants the reassurance of talking to someone on the phone.

    - as the price goes up, so does the consumer's incentive to look for a discount or bonus.

    - sometimes, one of the merchant's sales staff might want to capture the full commission and exclude the affiliate.

    - some customers want to be treated as "wholesale" customers, or as "preferred" customers, when they make a large purchase, and some merchants don't handle "wholesale" or "preferred-customer" sales online.

    Of course, some of these transactions are still trackable to the affiliate, especially if the merchant has set up telephone tracking, or has taken some other steps to try to trace the source of the order back to the affiliate.

    Sorry, Mack, both of those items are "temporarily sold out." No commissions there.

    This is mine and it stuck:

    $500 commission on a 2% merchant, so the sale was around $25,000:

    So you can get big commissions here or anywhere. Great thing about this business is there are no limits

    Sorry about that. As soon as I posted them on a site, my readers must have went and bought them all up. I'll let you know when they come back in stock, before I sell them all again.

    I've had some big sales/commissions from jewelry merchants. Granted I somehow end up with about a 90% return rate (bad credit / invalid sale, other reasons) on the big-big priced items, but the 10% that sticks is nice.
    But I don't base everything targeting those big ticket items, those are just nice gravy every once in a while.

    http://www.shop.com/op/~IBM_(Mfr_:_D59V1LL_I)_ws_datastg_mvs_ed_svr_lic_mnt_(database)-prod-40353026


    And guess what, it's ON SALE!

    Was $1,060,025.00

    Now $963,659.37

    You Save $96,365.63


    You would think for a 990k+ item, they would at least have have a picture.

    Man, I thought I found a big one with this:

    http://www.hammacher.com/publish/10921.asp $49,999.95 (10% commish)

    but I've clearly been outclassed.

    So, how about we look at ebay...

    Ocean Front Highrise Site for Sale, Daytona Beach!

    buy it now for $9,437,500.00.

    Commish should come in upwards of 100k.

    There's a reason army's wear uniforms even though it makes them easier to spot. Sometimes that's what you want. Uniforms suggest organization, power, and numbers. These, in turn, inspire fear. And, as any good operative knows, there is no more effective weapon than fear.
