Creating an Extension Subscription
Extension Subscriptions allow Affiliate Advertiser Pro to extend the locking date of your commissions in your CJ Affiliate account. Extensions allow you to take advantage of the longest contractual time to account for returned merchandise. This guide walks you through requesting an Extension Subscription from CJ Customer Support and providing the necessary details in Affiliate Advertiser Pro.
Important! Affiliate Advertiser Pro customers who have signed an Agency Authorization Agreement can skip this step. Our agreement with CJ allows your Affiliate Advertiser Pro onboarding specialist to complete this process on your behalf, no additional setup necessary.
