Overall Satisfaction with CJ Affiliate

We just transferred over from another affiliate program software and the difference has been dramatic. CJ has a very large pool of publishers which has made getting results much easier. They also handle the payments to the publishers which is very nice as we had many difficulties when we were manually issuing payments.
  • Great pool of publishers
  • Pays publishers reliably
  • Server side tracking
  • Reporting is a bear
  • Correcting transactions could be simpler
  • Loading speed of website is constantly agitating.
  • Publisher pool
  • Reporting and correcting
  • Payment manager
  • We've exceeded our sales from our previous program within 2 months of being on the platform
  • Improving relationships with affiliates as payments have been processed on time.
  • Dramatically increased our outreach to publishers
CJ definitely has the largest pool of publishers and is well built out in terms of features. However, it does appear that they have a lot of dead weight in their pool which is something that their competitors claim they have solved.

We ultimately selected CJ because we had previous experience with the platform and wanted to tap into their affiliate pool.

Would you buy CJ Affiliate again?


CJ would be a great place for any publisher looking to monetize their blog or social media accounts.

Products that have broad targeting or rely on bargain hunters would perform really well as there are tons of coupon sites and fashion blogs.

Niche products would have a harder time growing as they would probably still need to do a lot of outreach.
