Needs improvement

This plugin does okay… It does what it asked to do automatically.. just not too good. My main concerns are as follows:

– In CJ, almost all coupons have an image. this plugin does not include those images. I doubt also purchasing the coupon image plugin would do this either
– Many times I find that the store URL does not include my affiliate link and has to be manually added. If its not there, it defaults to just the regular link without my affiliate link
– Most things are not considered coupons but promotions even if it has a coupon code in the text. But I am assuming that has more to do with how the company classifies the promo

It really has saved me time and made me some money. I just feel like the plugin could do a better job.

Commission Junction Publisher plugin review

This plugin is ok, seems to work. However, there is still a lot of additional manual tweaking required to get coupons right. I don’t think this tool is adding much value, as it only works for one Affiliate program. I’ve only managed to get about 100 coupons added from CJ, and that’s after applying to hundreds of merchandisers – and most of these have missing or bad data, including missing images, coupon codes, inadequate descriptions.
Perhaps if it interfaced to a broader selection of Affiliate programs, and resulted in a better quality coupon, it may be worth paying for.

    I have bought CJ Affiliate Coupons from Meloniq page before and renewed it just today to realise that that plugin version is not working anymore. How do I get this one now? I’ve already purchased. CJ Affiliate Coupons
