My first affiliate coach never paid me my $500 in affiliate commissions. And I know that I did more than those $500. We was in a program (the allstars program - we were supposed to make more tan $5000 in three months-), promoting like mad (me and 60 others), We got only tiny commissions in our idevaffiliate account for our efforts.
When we asked him where are our commissions, he told us that the software didn't track the sales because of our redireect frames...
This "man" told us after that that he just bought a new house... in Hawai! When everybody started to complain and... he just banned us from the forum!
But that didn't stop me. While it was a fiasco, I learned a lot in the process.
Good new: The two sites we were promoting are closed!
Bad new: he game back with a new program, and he put my name in his testimonial, and I don't know how I can remove my name from his scam site!
We removed the frames, and commissions started to roll in again, from us, and our sub-affiliates... but the problem is that he never paid us.
I said $1,000, but I am sure it's way more than that. Clickbank had a problem when they upgraded to beta, and even merchants lost sales in the process.
It happens it's the game.
However, I really like affiliate marketing and I hope we all succeed with affilorama.
