I got the heads up today that Commission Junction is going to start reversing commissions paid from the Yahoo! program. The reason I was told, was that some of the offers I was promoting (with their own linking structure and instructions on how to link to them) are possibly going to be reversed.
I gotta say this is one of the reasons I hate Commission Junction. Yes they have tons of sweet ass programs but how sweet are they if you never get paid?!?! I mean seriously. The CJ person who warned me about it even said she thought I did nothing wrong and it was completely Yahoo!’s mistake yet it appears that I will be losing up to 7k in commissions owed to me. The wild thing is that I was told I am one of the smaller publishers that will have commissions reversed. I wonder how some of the people feel that are pushing some serious cash.
Commission Junction, you messed with the wrong affiliate to pull this crap on. You reverse fees on me that I did fair and square and its ON. Stick up for your publishers for christ’s sake.
I have talked to a few people at Yahoo on the publisher side and they tell me that the ones running the affiliate program are complete idiots and all will be straightened out.
Here is where I have a problem with it… what if I was just a regular person and not a decent contextual publisher? Would I just have to take it in the rear like a lot of the smaller guys are going to?
