"Commission Junction is a network that matches products to content, audits e-commerce activity, manages the relationship between merchants and affiliate content providers, and collects and pays e-commerce revenues on all sales generated."
The basic concept is simple. Affiliate sites have content. Merchant sites have stuff to sell. CJ is the go-between in matching these groups up. Rather than profiling users and then guessing as to what targeted ad might be most appropriate for a particular user, CJ clients choose from merchant ads that are relevant to their site content. Commission Junction calls this method of providing advertising EnContext.
CJ also has Affiliates and Partners programs that pay bonuses for each new network member that is approved after following the referrer's link. The network is huge. "Commission Junction's customers include over 1000 online merchants and 250,000 unique affiliate content sites that together represent over 2 million e-commerce partnerships."
