    Hey,

    I had a browse and couldn't find one of these, thought it might be a good resource.

    Basically together we will build a blacklist of sites that have given problems with no resolution such as payments taken but funds not added to the account and payment not refunded followed by no contact. The goal of this is not to say never to use these networks, but more to inform of issues had with the network previously to the user can make a more informed decision on what network they select.

    So here is my contribution to the list (if one of these already exists, can someone respond with the link?)

    Affiliate network: Adxpansion
    Issue With Network
    : Funds Paid to account were not credited, due to rejecting the payment, Bank confirmed payment made, no refund issued.
    Length of relationship with network: 1 previous payment (went straight through, No issue )
    Issue resolved?: No
    Time to resolve: N/a
    Level of support: Good, when the issue first occurred my AM said he would look into it, he said they cannot find the payment, no response to messages after that.


    Template

    Affiliate network:
    Issue With Network:
    Length of relationship with network:
    Issue resolved?:
    Time to resolve:
    Level of support:
    Did you use the service again after the first issue?:
    Did you encounter further issues with them?:


    *****Edit*****

    added in some extra questions onto the template that I thought might be useful.
    Just because you had 1 problem doesn't necessarily mean the service should be written off, for example, I would consider using adxpansion again, but I would only do so with a more secure payment option than I previously used.

    This thread is really helpful especially for newbie who are start affiliate marketing with new CPA marketplace. I was start working with ClickSure.At first they pay well and no payment issue. But after some moth passed several members of my list complained me there were no products at all. Beside I loose my authority to one or more lists. I contact to the vendor about the issue but he didn't reply. Several checks of mine also void without no reason. So I suggest everyone avoid ClickSure for affiliate marketing.

    Affiliate network: ClickSure
    Issue With Network:
    Crap/No products and payment
    Length of relationship with network:
    1 Year
    Issue resolved?:
    No
    Time to resolve:
    N/A
    Level of support:
    Bad. Especially when you are in payment problems.

    Thanks, Yea I'm hoping it will stop people having to repeat the mistakes some of us have already made. I'm honestly kind of surprised that no one has already got one of these going.

    ClickSure often run into these kinda problems with affiliates because of their policy of allowing the advertisers to reject all leads. Usually most of the advertisers won't say anything for a long time from the moment we start getting them leads and all of a sudden,they would say that the leads are duplicate/fraud and reject the leads won't pay affiliates for even a single lead

    Advertisers are abusing Clicksure's policy on leads
