Why Commission Junction Deactivates Publishers Accounts

If you are wondering why Commission junction deactivates publishers accounts, this happens when a publisher account on Commission Junction has not generated any valid commissions during the last five months. Commission Junction is committed to maintaining a dynamic and productive network. Consequently, per the Publisher Service Agreement, they regularly deactivate accounts that are not actively earning commissions and do not have a sufficient balance amount.

Your account will be deemed inactive and would be scheduled to begin the dormancy process in the next 30 days after 5 months of no valid commission. What that means is that beginning 30 days from due date, your account will begin accruing a monthly dormant account fee against any balance that currently exists in the account. Once the account has reached a zero balance, the account will be deactivated.

This fee only applies to dormant accounts that currently show a balance; if your account currently has a zero balance, no fees will be assessed and your account will be deactivated immediately following the next 30 days of inactivity. Please note that once your account is deactivated, you will not track or earn commissions and your advertiser relationships will expire if you do not reactivate the account within the first 90 days of dormancy.

When it gets close to deactivation of your account. You will get an email from Commission junction. If you no longer wish to keep your publisher’s account active, simply disregard the email and your account will be deactivated in 30 days through the normal process described above. If you wish to continue using the account, you can get your account into active status by doing the following:

- Generate a commission before your account is deactivated. Deactivation will occur 30 days after the account balance has reached a zero balance, or 30 days from the email notice if you currently have a zero balance. If you are unable to generate a commission within the next 30 days, your account will enter the dormancy state. If this occurs, but you still wish to use the account, simply log in to your account within 180 days from the day of deactivation and follow the prompts for reactivation. This will reactivate the account with no consequences other than a loss of tracking between deactivation and reactivation and the loss of any advertiser relationships if the account has been in the dormancy state for longer than 90 days.

If you are unable to reactivate your account online, you can call Commission Junction Client Support and request that your account be reactivated. Client Support can only reactivate accounts once they are dormant; Client Support cannot prevent an account from going dormant. If you do not wish for your account to go dormant, the only way to prevent the status change is to earn a commission within the next 30 days.
