Hey there what hosting talk, today I want to talk about affiliate programs that do not pay their commissions properly. Does anybody else have problems getting paid from multiple affiliates for their sales. Over the years I have worked with A lot of hosting companies, I recommend sales to them and sometimes they do not want to pay. You would be amazed that the reason they give for not wanting to pay their affiliate commissions.
With all the software behind affiliate tracking and the payment systems involved you would think that they would be trying to work with you to resolve the issue instead of just shutting off your affiliate account without even notification. I feel that hosting companies are holding affiliates to a different standard that they’re holding their everybody else. I don’t understand how they have the gas city to decide on what the turn the services are and then not abide by them themselves. It is against the law to run an affiliate program which you do not intend to pay people.
One affiliate claim they were not “legitimate sales”. Even when provided a list of the domains that were actively running that have fully fledged websites installed on them and running and customer information they still want to argue the fact that these were legitimate sales. It is not your job as an affiliate manager or web hosting company to tell me as an affiliate what website my customers put up our legitimate or not. They are legitimate charges with no chargebacks no issues and no question so therefore they should be deemed legitimate charges. This is after waiting over 90 days for the billing department to even investigate the situation. They didn’t know such investigation at all. In the end I had to get a gag order with the hosting company, and they paid me what they owed me. What is this mean? This means that they knew that they were the wrong they want me to talk about it so therefore it will be named in this article.
This isn’t the only hosting company I have problems with. I worked with many SEO companies and I have recommended thousands of customers to web hosting companies further small business websites. I have also recommended hosting to my own small business what design clients. Over the years just becomes tedious and time-consuming to even try to hold hosting company accountable for the terms of service in agreement that they already put in place.
I would love to hear some other people stories on the type of affiliate issues that they had in the recent years. Thank you for listening have a great day happy Monday!
