Creating a Correction Subscription
Correction Subscriptions allow Affiliate Advertiser Pro to correct commissions in your CJ Affiliate account. Affiliate Advertiser Pro identifies whenever you are owed refunds on your commission and automatically requests these corrections in your account. This guide walks you through requesting a Correction 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.
