The Barnes and Noble has announced that they are closing their current network affiliate partner Linkshare on December 31st. This will affect anyone who uses their blog or website to link to e-books, e-readers, tablets or anything else that B&N sells online. Starting January 1st 2016 Barnes and Noble is switching affiliate providers and the new company everyone will be doing business with is “CJ Affiliate Network.”
Barnes and Noble has sent out an email to anyone who has a registered affiliate account, letting them know they must update their links or they will not earn any commissions on future sales. Interesting enough B&N has not updated their main website, which is not a surprise.
