    Registrars.com offer an affiliate program through cj network. Just receive a funny message from registrars.com.

    Old comission pay per sale = 25%
    New commission pay per sale =0.1%

    Actually, why not they cancel their programs then? Who will promote their products for 0.1% commission.


    Is there any valid logic behind that I may miss out?

    It is a rather confusing move on their behalf - but probably aimed at those CJ members who don't regularly check their payment modification notices. If they keep the program open, while paying virtually zero for sales generated, they will be laughing all the way to the bank (albeit at the expense of their most loyal affiliates).

    In any case, the most likely reason to explain the 'cancellation' of their CJ program is because their have launched a new affiliate program that they are managing themselves. You may read about it, or sign up, here:

    Thanks. I agreee it is the reason. They want affiliates left cj and join their own managed programs.

    Considering they charge $35 per year for domains, does anyone even use them to begin with? I mean, when the competition is going for $10-$15 how many customers could you possibly get at $35?

    ...another possible explanation...

    CJ "sponsors" often reduce their payouts for brief periods...possible in a move to prevent exhausting their CJ account until the have a chance to depost additional funds. I personally have seen pay-per-lead programs drop their pay-outs to only 1 cent...then bump them right back up within a matter of hours. Keep checking your CJ account to see if the pay-out jumps back up.

    IceDogg, just ask NSI and Register.com how many customers they get...

    Although I personally prefer to obtain domain names at reseller prices, many people remain happy to pay $35/year with the assumption that they will receive superior service and support. Of course, they don't always receive this, but the assumption remains, regardless.
