EWA hasn't paid me for 4 months

33 replies
First, I'm sorry to resort to posting this on the forum. I have reached out to EWA, Ryan Eagle, and my various affiliate managers (who seem to change monthly) multiple times over the last few months. I have copies of all the emails including responses from Ryan Eagle saying he is reaching out to accounting to resolve the problem. But that was weeks ago and he hasn't replied to my follow-up emails.

Basically, I'm complaining about a relatively small amount of money ($283.65). However to some that could be significant.

I think EWA used to be a decent business, but clearly it is not being run by professionals or those in good moral standing.

Consider this a warning to any marketers who are considering sending traffic to EWA, or if you are currently sending traffic to swith to someone/anyone else.

Here's a screenshot of my earnings that are owed to me: EWA commisions owed

Hopefully this can still be resolved.

    Ninety-nine percent of advertising doesn't sell much of anything.

    I had no idea. Just started finding other threads on the forum here. I guess I shouldn't have expected anything better from them, they had plenty of opportunity to tell me in the emails I sent them, but obviously they were hoping I'd just keep sending them free traffic.

    I am an advertiser, we made quite high prepayment and setup the campaign.... no traffic, no conversions and now it looks like we are not getting our upfront payment back. Sucks...

    The opinons regarding Ryan Eagle are spot on. Not the sycophantic ones, the ones who recommend you steer clear of some little bling idiot who tries to show his gold rings off and thinks it's cool, 'cos he saw 50 cent do it on MTV.

    A little kid, out of his depth, obsessed with spending all his cash on bling and material stuff.

    A real little tasteless piece of trash who knows very little about the world.

    He used to drink (BS anyway), whoah everyone, he grinds so hard at work, he's a Republican. Big freakin deal. All I care about is doing business and he was a crock of useless pig sh!t for that.

    Ryan, if you're reading this, and skulk in the shadows without responding, your name is sullied forever, everywhere you go.

    Or you can man up and pay your affiliates.

    Typical, these CPA networks go out of business all the time, it comes with the business that where in.
    I find the guys that have been around maybe 4 years are the ones who come and go.

    The few networks that have been around a while have track record and I don't think they are going to bounce anytime soon. Clickbooth, maxbounty, peerfly, are all pretty strong company's these other networks are sometimes running the network from there basements lol

      MaxBounty is bigger and better than ever before. We're still paying weekly, still paying on time. 9 years now.

    I was surprised to see them go to be honest, as they appeared to be ramping up their international presence over the past few months. However, news of them not paying affiliates did serve as a warning sign that they might be in some financial trouble.

    Luckily for me, I hadn't sent any traffic through EWA for over a year. I hope other affiliates didn't lose too much money.

    Ryan started this game out as a little tike, got successful, made a twitter and started living the rockstar lifestyle before learning about life...no surprise here. I hope everyone eventually gets their money back by whatever means you can.

    Seems Ryan is still pushing forward to this day, keeping his smug attitude. --> http://twitter.com/EagleWebAssets

      I remember a hate blog post before about him somewhere on the net. It was when EWA started to fall into pieces and managers are preparing to shutdown Ryan's business in order. Then someone saw a photo of him with his brand new sports car. It was interpreted as him lavishly spending affiliates money. I never followed the story whether he answered to that or not.

    I think it's more then just a big network going under, it's a statement of how a lot of affiliates do things that are borderline illegal and networks end up taking huge, business ending hits. Then the innocent affiliates are left holding the bag.

    There's too much crap in the CPA world and networks have to be very careful now with who they take traffic from.

    Sorry for the affiliates who lost money here but unfortunately this happens in this game. Over the years I have been ripped off for thousands of dollars from different affiliate companies that paid well for some time and then suddenly shut down. My advice: multiple streams of income. Don't ever let yourself get into a situation where you rely on just one company.

    Ryan Eagle.. is that his real name? Sounds like a stage name.

    I just looked at his twitter acc, it's like reading the ramblings of a madman .. and he has a gun! One of those combat machine guns..

    Too many idiots in this world!

    All EWA affiliates...BAD NEWS!

    You will not get your money. Something about off shore bank accounts etc.

    Sucks that another network goes down and frauds their affiliates. What a shame!

    Here's an apology note from Ryan in Urdu which he posted on http://www.facebook.com/groups/pakis...rnetmarketers/ on 19th Feb 2013. in this post he claims he'll pay all the affiliates and gain his reputation back. Moreover he says all the traffic on his network will be stopped in March 2013. If he's all gone then why is he not shutting down the website?

    Main, Ryan Eagle, apse sachi tarah maafi mangna chahta hun us situation ke liye jisne EWA ke publishers ko affect kara hai. Mairay career ki sabse barhti huwi highlights main se EWA Pakistan main sabse ziyada barh rahi thi aur un Pakistanis ke sath kaam kartay way jinko kuch arsa pehlay doosray networks ne ignore kartay thay. Mujhe aap sab ke saath kaam karke bauhat piyara laga tha aur apki country main jo taraqi ki kabiliyat hai woh lajawab hai. Halanke EWA bilkul khatam honay wala hai, magar main phir se wapis aunga kisi na kisi tarah kyunke mujhe aap sab ke saath kaam karke bauaht acha laga tha. EWA ke sath jo bhi huwa main uski poori zimedari leta hun aur Umer ko bauhat shukriyan karna chahta hun uski mehnat aur lagan ke liye - woh EWA company ki rehmat par tha. Aap sab ko main tahay dil se yaad karunga, magar main wapis zaroor aunga kisi na kisi tarah mustaqbil main.

    Goto http://www.facebook.com/groups/pakis...rnetmarketers/, scroll down a bit and you'll see his post there.

    Be always careful with the networks you're working with. Visit forums regularly and make sure that you are up to date and know everything that's going on in the CPA industry so that you can pause your campaign immediately if a network stops paying.
