    For example I would like to sell a mobile mini solar plant for 100000$ and take 1% commision (or better let it be 5% :p ). Are there deals/vendors like that?

    Are you kidding, CJ has the biggest and best vendors. It's true that you can't really make money with simple leads (just reffering people to the site), but if you manage to presell some product and have people buy it from the advertiser's site, you can make a killing in commissions. I was making $2000 a month from 2 sites before they dropped from Google and now I have to work my way up again...

    I have made approximately $200 from CJ until last year... Then suddenly no commissions and eventually my account was deactivated because of inactivity. I tried getting it back but they just don't listen. So no more CJ for me as of now...

    Yea I know many people who make $2K+ per month. Personally I prefer ClickBank (also Affiliate Marketing) and I make about $3K a month.

    I have been using cj for more than 4 years and only use it to pay for my dedicated servers.
    For the past 4 years I have been able to make enough money from cj.com through 3 general news websites.
    I have had more success with cj.com than any other affiliate program

    CJ is a great affiliate network - no doubt about it (keep reading for the proverbial but...)

    I have just a couple of sites where I used to promote affiliate products (most of my sites promote my own products, so almost no affiliate marketing there). And on those few sites, I've always made a few hundred dollars each month in commissions, sites that got very little traffic, and almost zero effort from me in keeping them current or updated. Basically low-priority sites for me.

    And then, I forgot about those sites for a couple of years, as the relative income from those sites became an extremely tiny fraction of my total business income.

    Then one day, I logged in to my CJ account, only to find that my account had been disabled. I had setup my account for direct deposit, so I hadn't been getting checks in a long time any way.

    Long story short, if you don't earn commissions for a while, they will disable you without notice, and there's no arguing with them (believe me, I tried!).

    So CJ is not the best service if you're a casual affiliate marketer, because you might end up building hundreds of sites with all kinds of relevant CJ links - and if you don't earn anything, then not only will your account get shut down at CJ, but you'll also have to go to all of those sites and modify those links, assuming they even let you back in again with a new account (which probably won't happen). So you're stuck with possibly thousands of dead affiliate links on all of your web sites, which you may have to spend tens of hours updating.

    For long term stability, and worry-free linking, ClickBank is the best. Your affiliate account will never be shut down because you're not making any sales, you don't need the approval of the vendor in order to promote them (unless the commissions are very large in which case vendor will need to whitelist you at CB), and you're not dependent on the vendor's or CJ's whims and fancies.

    Hope this helps.

    Many people are making a good income from these CJ site. However it provide the affiliates to use the commission work on voucher code provision. Site related to the coupon code or voucher code are earning their money from CJ only.

    Although CJ doesn't have the product quantity that Amazon does, the commission rate at CJ is much better than Amazon. Many vendors at CJ will pay 10+% commissions. You would have to be a high volume seller to earn commissions like that from Amazon. CJ might disable dormant accounts, but remember Amazon shuts down affiliates in states that have internet sales tax laws. Just ask the thousands of Amazon affiliates that were dropped from their program this year.

    CJ is a great affiliate network which I receive monthly payments from. An example of one affiliate sale I had yesterday - £43.56 commission from selling a product of £435.62 value. If you are wondering what it was it was a Hands Free Hair Rejuvenator via Hammacher
