      Hi i would love to but i haven’t bought the script as yet, just ensuring that when i buy i have things to mke me fjncyion how i want to

  • Eston Swaby

    If i purchase this plugin, can i have specific coupons and deals loaded to it automatically in differet menus? Eg having a menu for free shipping, webhosting etc and coupons or deals that are free shipping etf will automatically be loaded to this area while all others go to the regular coupon area? Would also want deals/promotions offers to go to a specific menu, tht is all offers that don’t have a coupon code

  • Eston Swaby

    Thanks just read it. I was eager to buy the cj plugin but think i will reconsider. reason being is of the coupons codes not being where it should be but in the description. WOuld buy linkshare as base on what I see with linkshare when I click on the code I will see the code but there merchants are much less than cj.

    can you tell me when you guys will have shareasale? also if I buy the framer for clipper will it show cj codes in the frame?

  • akoetsier

    The shops and coupons are automaically imported but i dont see any store images in the coupons? Please fix asap!

    • meloniq

      CJ plugin not importing a store images. This feature has the iCodes Publisher plugin because their API offer that information, CJ don’t.

  • mgermade

    Does each coupon get automatically posted, or is there an option to put them in a draft so I can tweak before uploading? I’d rather avoid all of the duplicate content.

    • meloniq

      There is an ‘Immediate publish’ option, so you can choose, and disable it if you want to review each coupon before publish.


    Comission Junction plugin for Clipper should have an option. It support to import only specific category. for example if someone wants to import TRAVEL cstegory so only TRAVEL category coupons import.

    Hi the plugin is not currently importing coupons from CJ though last year it worked with my other site on test basis. I tried this now with Clipper 1.6 and later with 1.5. Then I tried the ‘import coupons now’ option and getting this message – CJ 0 coupons have been imported.
    I have also tested API access and seems it is valid – Your CJ developer API access keys are valid.

    Would you please advise.

  • happylife

    this plugin no longer imports coupon code or include coupons in the description of the offers. If there is no update in the future, the plugin can help import offers only.

  • Kasir

    Need Some help! CJ plugin Store Relation option Setting can,t update or saved?

  • Ulterios

    Hi, I have a pre-purchase question regarding this plugin.

    I wanted to know if it can be set to only allow coupons to be posted for joined advertisers and block/not allow non-joined advertisers coupons?

    I only want to have coupons that are for programs that I am part of and not advertisers I do not deal with.

    Any information will be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    • meloniq

      Yes, both plugins “Commission Junction Publisher” & “CJ Affiliate Coupons” has an option to refine importing offers to only from joined advertisers… so only offers that you will receive commission will be imported.

      • Ulterios

        Awesome, Thanks so much for your help.

        What is the difference between the two? I’m just trying to figure out which would be best to buy for my needs.

        Thanks again

        • meloniq

          Generally plugins are very similar, so please compare features list… sorry for being not too specific, but I’m the owner of one of this plugins, so saying that one or the other is better would be unfair 😉

  • sirfaheem

    Hi can you update your plugin with option for unreliable coupon ? 1 option with make unreliable copuon auto update with reliable

  • 9themescool

    This plugin was working with my coupon clipper site and it now no longer works? Are you making any updates to the plugin? 1 star at this point, doesn’t work.

    • meloniq

      Hi @9themescool,

      You have left the same comment of few different plugins… don’t you think it’s strange all of them stopped to work at the same time?!
      Have you changed something recently on your website, or maybe you changed hosting provider, or something else?
      Have you reported problem on support forum describing issue, and your current environment in which it isn’t working?

  • Prosper Noah

    Hi meloniq,

    Great Plugin!
    would definitely check it out as I joined CJ recently!

  • 9themescool

    Here are some issues I found. Think it applies to the ShareASale coupon plugin too. The issue was fixed though with some help. #1 “There was issue in Language filter. plugin checking with “en” as language and imported data has “English”. as language.” #2 “Plugin was importing whole bunch of data from CJ website. Due to that our database/wordpress was not able to handle all data at one time.”

  • onegoodman25

    hi, the plugin stopped working on my site too, i have no change made. the API test pass fine, the loading doesn’t work just sping forever even for 5 coupons

  • dthardy

    DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PLUGIN. NOT WORKING. This plugin stopped working on my site several weeks ago also. I didn’t realize it had stopped importing coupons for a week or two. It has been 2 plus weeks since I reported the problem. Support has only responded with we will look at it.

      Plugin was stopped working because of changes in CJ API and no new documentation provided.
      We’ve finally found a way to make it work without API docs. Thanks to developer who spent a lot of time on experimenting with requests to their API and its responses.

      Now, new version 1.5 has been released, fixed this issue and added ability to import coupon codes.

      All Best!

  • dthardy

    The new plugin fixed all the current issues. Everything is working great now. Thanks for getting it fixed!
