    Cafepress question
    When I'm building a shop is it ok to put in my own Cafepress products or is that considered a no-no?

    You can't earn affiliate commission on your own products. You have to give CafePress your CJ pid so they can filter it out.

    So you can use popshops to link to yourself, but you can't earn affiliate commission on top of your shopkeeper earnings.

    I had given Cafepress my CJ PID...so I just wanted to make sure it was ok to have my own products in my popshop. I didn't know how it worked so i guess it sounds like I'll be ok?

    Thanks Debbie!

    technically, if you give cp a cj id and ONLY use that id when using popshops.. you should be able to link to yourself and have it avoid counting affiliate sales of your own items.

    there have been reported bugs in the past where sales have gone through... please make sure to report these, if you see them, to cp as it is against the tos to earn an affiliate commission on your own shop items. - not to mention it takes away from your potential volume bonus.

    happy popshop building

    Ok, I'll keep an eye on it. I certainly don't want my own product to go through as an affiliate sale as I love the volume bonus!
