    Hey Guys, I just joined in CJ pgoram to be able to participage in Ebay affiliate scheme.
    SEMrush
    But when I apply for it, I got a Declined Application status, automatically.

    I tried other services as well. But got the same message.

    Do you know why this thing happens?

    Thank,

    Are you in the US? Maybe they don't allow affiliates outside the US or from certain countries.

    Ah, you are right. I am from Iran and my country is under the US trade embargo. (Although I used my friend address who is in UAE, but it seems the underestand it from my IP).
    I did not know that Ebay is only for the US and a few countries.

    Regards,

    I think they judge according to your postal address. I have also websites residing in Canada - so it's not through your IP address.

    But on the other hand I'm from Slovakia and the US are :) friendly to us, at least in some ways...

    Send them an email requesting clarification of reasons, then get ready to scream discrimination at the top of your lungs.

    Some merchants on CJ don't allow affiliates outside of the US, UK, Canada, Australia. Examples are Ebay, Yahoo, CompUSA, Philips, to name a few.

    And I thought the interenet was a global community :(

    Hi,

    I am also facing the same problem, i am not able to find affiliate sign up. Can any body tell me about this? I am from Pakistan and i don't think so Pakistan will be banned for CJ.

    CJ Requirements - Before applying for advertisers there in CJ. Your website should be at least 6 months old and should be getting good traffic about 20+ per day from organic keywords alone.

    Country is not a problem in CJ. I think your website ranking in SERPS can be a problem why your application is getting unaccepted. You can open a support ticket to get the reason.

    I don't know if this link will help but they give some reasons, at least site wide, http://www.cj.com/publisher/join , now I believe some advertisers are just restricted to some countries, if you don't meet both, you are doomed :D
