Can you buy from your own affiliate link using CJ?

    Hey I have a question. Are you aloud to buy from your own affiliate link?
    I was thinking.. so you get 10% commission for buying a pair of Nikes through your affiliate link.
    SEMrush
    What if you sold the nikes on ebay, and then drop shipped them through your affiliate link. Meaning you'd get 10% commission on CJ, plus the % you charged extra on ebay, or you can give a discounted price, making more sales. Does this work or is it legal?

    Some allow it. I did something similar but I got permission from them. Works out pretty good.

    Check the ToS to be absolutely sure. Other affiliate networks/mechants allow it, so I think it should be OK.

    Some advertisers allow it, and some do not.

    Ask the specific company, or read the terms.

    It depends on the sponsor. Some would consider that fraud, while others would have no problem with it. Best plan is to read the TOS as thoroughly as you can, or ask the sponsor directly.

    I don't CJ rules are against it. The vendor has the right to mark it as FRAUD!

    Usually its not a problem and many people are doing to it get discounts when they buy!

    I've done it before, but I'm pretty sure it's not allowed.

    I check over CJ's TOS and there is nothing in it that says you cannot, but you are bound to the individual sponsor's TOS so make sure you check that first. From personal experience most do not have a problem with it...But you can always have a friend or relative order them for you just to be safe!
