Commission Junction Archive
Commission Junction sent me a note today that they have raised their minimums to get paid. Commission Junction is the largest affiliate management company and I’ve used the service on some of my Web sites. Currently I am set to receive a check anytime I reach $25. The new minimum to receive a check is $100 and the direct deposit option is $50 to receive payment (I am not sure why I am not on dd).
Here are the reasons they shared with regards to the payment change:
- To streamline our publisher payment process.
- To offer publishers an incentive to switch to direct deposit because paper checks are less efficient, more costly and slower than the electronic option.
- To drastically cut down on paper consumption and better support environmentally conscious commerce.
- To better align our process with the industry because our minimum commission threshold to receive payment is, almost without exception, far below the current standard.
As I’ve seen with ad network after ad network over the past decade, most payment changes are really about the float. Is it in this case?
