Is Profit Kings Media a legit network or a scam network? I started promoting offers in January but I have not been paid yet. I have tried to contact my affiliate manager but none of his contact info works. I was told they pay weekly but I have not been paid yet.

    stop sending traffic immediately. Instead go for some other company which always pays on time. The companiy's rep depends on payment terms.

    I stopped sending traffic about a month ago when I noticed I had not been paid for the previous month. It would be good if I had some way of contacting them about this.

      When you are logged in to PKM, in the bottom right you'll see a link 'payments'. Click that and shoot Sandra an email and see if she can sort it out. She's definitely answering emails as I'm talking to her now.

        Thanks for the tip, I just tried that and it has contact info for Sandra. I had clicked on the payments button on the top right of the screen before and assumed that button on the bottom of the page was the same.

    There are plenty of them which are paying on time or earlier

    I don't think affiliate networks care to much if you are member on WarriorForum or not. Being WF just means you joined a forum, doesn't mean your successful or legitimate.

    Also if a network doesn't pay you stop sending them traffic immediately.

      I think that it's a bit premature to start saying "stay away from PKM" just because one person isn't getting paid. For all we know, the advertiser may not be paying or they may suspect fraud (I'm not accusing the OP of anything, BTW.) When you start to see a lot of people posting about non-payment, that should be an indicator...

    We have been in business since 2009 and continue to prosper. If you don't run traffic here, please save your rumors and sell them to Gao of AffPaying. Serious affiliates only.

    OP - you're more than welcome to contact me through I own Profit Kings Media and we ALWAYS pay. Some common reasons for delayed payments include missing tax doc (W8/W9), incorrect payment details (wrong acnt #), sorting through fraudulent traffic, etc etc.

      I have just made three fruitless attempts to complete your signup page. Each time I was requested to "check the form again" but upon compliance was again served up the same completely uninformative message.

      I suspect the rejection occurred because the form is unable to handle an app from Canada. If you do not take clients from Canada then you should say so clearly instead of wasting peoples' valuable time. If you do accept them then you should require your programmer to repeat the form 1,000 times or go back to jail.

      Your's etc.

    I think you have to look at the terms and see what get out clauses they have.

    Been scammed by so many networks over the years, those that try to steal your traffic and those that go bust.

    Here are their terms:

    Affiliate Terms and Conditions
    These terms and conditions ("Agreement") are agreed to by the person or entity ("Affiliate") whose name and address appear in the application ("Application") to participate in Profit Kings Media, LLC, Inc's affiliate network (the "Network").

Affiliate shall promptly notify Profit Kings Media in the event of a material change in its business practices or strategy. Approval of an Affiliate can be withdrawn by Profit Kings Media, at any time for any reason.
    1.1. Minimum Eligibility Requirements.

    2. Use of the Site.
    2.1. The Site allows Profit Kings Media to post offers of advertising programs sponsored by Profit Kings Media or its affiliates on the system ("Program(s)"). The Programs will specify the amount and terms under which Affiliate will receive payment when the applicable Program's requirements are fulfilled. Compensation is derived from a specified event ("Event") identified in a Program, such as clicks, click-throughs, sales, registrations, impressions and leads. If Affiliate accepts a Program, Affiliate agrees to place that Program's advertising creative (including the subject and from lines, the Advertiser CAN-SPAM disclosures and any other disclosures provided therein) ("Ad") on Affiliate’s Media. Affiliate shall display the Ad exactly as it appears on the Site and will not alter it in any way. Failure to adhere to this requirement may, in addition to all other remedies available to Profit Kings Media, result in termination of Affiliate. Profit Kings Media may change a Program at any time, upon reasonable advance written notice to Affiliate. Profit Kings Media is responsible for displaying and administering all active Programs and tracking the payments owed.
    2.2. Special Rules Governing Email Campaigns.
    2.2(a). In the event that Profit Kings Media or Affiliate receives a complaint from any recipient of a Program transmitted by Affiliate, upon our request Affiliate will immediately provide Profit Kings Media with appropriate records verifying that recipient’s consent to receive email transmissions from Affiliate. Such records include, but may not necessarily be limited to, the Internet address of Affiliate’s opt-in/opt-out website, the date of the recipient’s action, and Affiliate’s privacy policy.
    2.2(b). No Misleading Headers or Other Masking of Email Origin. An email may not include falsification of header information, false registrations for email accounts or IP addresses used in connection with email ads, and retransmissions of an email ad for the purpose of concealing its origin. Affiliate and/or their email delivery providers are prohibited from relaying or retransmitting emails from a computer or computer network that was accessed without authorization.
    2.2(c). Subject lines may not be false or misleading such that it would likely mislead a reasonable recipient as to the contents or subject matter of the message. Affiliate may only use approved Subject Lines available provided by Profit Kings Media or Subject Lines for which Affiliate has documented approval from Profit Kings Media.
    2.2(d). Email Ads Must Contain Clear Identification. Messages containing advertisements or solicitations must identify themselves as such, and do so by “clear and conspicuous” means. Further, the sender must identify itself as the initiator and sender of the email including physical address.
    2.2(e). Effective Method of Opting Out of Future Mailings. Senders of commercial emails must give recipients an effective means of requesting not to receive future email ads from that sender. At a minimum, the Affiliate must give the recipient the ability to send a reply message to unsubscribe, opt out via postal letter and provide a functioning unsubscribe link that must remain in operation for 30 days from the date of the original email transmission.
    2.2(f). All unsubscribe requests must be adhered to within 10 business days from their receipt. You may not sell or transfer an email address once someone has opted out of receiving future communications, whether from only the advertiser or globally.
    2.2(g). No Random or Invalid Generation of Email Addresses. Affiliate is responsible for knowing the source of its email list.

Affiliate must have opt-in data for all recipients in its database.
    2.2 (h). Monitoring. Profit Kings Media shall be constantly monitoring, on its own or with the assistance of third parties, the Affiliates for compliance with these Terms and Conditions.
    3. License.
    Profit Kings Media grants Affiliate a revocable, non-transferable, non-exclusive limited license to use the Site (including any Ads posted thereon) and any data, reports, information or analyses arising out of such use (the “Site Data”) solely for the purpose of marketing or promoting the Programs hereunder and subject to these Terms and Conditions and the applicable Program Terms. If an Affiliate also maintains its own network of Affiliates ("Third Party Affiliates"), such Affiliate may not provide Ads to its Affiliates, without the prior written consent of Profit Kings Media. You acknowledge and agree to assume all liability for the Third Party Affiliates and will ensure that Third Party Affiliates comply with these Terms and Conditions and all applicable laws and regulations.
    If an Affiliate fails to adhere to the foregoing requirement, in addition to any other remedies available to Profit Kings Media, Affiliate shall forfeit its rights to any amounts owed by Profit Kings Media to Affiliate. Affiliate acknowledges and agrees that Affiliate does not have, nor will it claim any right, title or interest in the Site software, applications, data, methods of doing business or any elements thereof, or any content provided on the Site (including the Ads). Affiliate may only access the Site via web browser, e-mail or in a manner approved by Profit Kings Media. Affiliate will not attempt in any way to alter, modify, eliminate, conceal, or otherwise render inoperable or ineffective the Site tags, source codes, links, pixels, modules or other data provided by or obtained from Profit Kings Media that allows Profit Kings Media to measure ad performance and provide its service. In addition, Affiliate acknowledges that all non-public information, data and reports received from Profit Kings Media hereunder or as part of the services hereunder is proprietary to and owned by Profit Kings Media. If instructed to do so by Profit Kings Media and/or if Affiliate shall be terminated by Profit Kings Media, Affiliate will immediately destroy and discontinue the use of any Profit Kings Media data, including Site Data, and any other material owned by Profit Kings Media or the Advertisers.
    4. Non-Solicitation.
    Affiliate agrees that Affiliate will not approach or attempt to engage in a contract with any of Profit Kings Media’ clients (each such client, individually a “Client” and all such clients, collectively “Clients”) directly or indirectly via a Client’s Ad agency, broker or any other person or entity. Profit Kings Media will promptly reply in writing to any inquiries received from Affiliate regarding the status of any person or entity as a Profit Kings Media’ Client so as to aid Affiliate in its efforts to comply with the non-solicitation provisions of these Terms and Conditions. Because Profit Kings Media will be irreparably harmed by Affiliate’s conduct, and because the true extent of such harm will be impossible to quantify, monetary damages will not be an adequate remedy for any such conduct. Affiliate agrees that Profit Kings Media shall be entitled to injunctive relief precluding Affiliate from taking or continuing any action or conduct in violation of this provision, to be issued by any court of competent jurisdiction upon a showing of any such conduct by Affiliate.
    5. Participation in our Program.
    Affiliate’s website will be subject to Profit Kings Media’ review and approval. Approval shall be written or by electronic submission. All Program related websites will contain links (“Links”) provided by Profit Kings Media. Affiliate’s website is also subject to Profit Kings Media’ review and approval, of which shall not be unreasonably withheld.
    5.1. Links.
    Affiliate agrees to use the Links in the exact form that we deliver them to Affiliate. Affiliate agrees not to modify, alter, delete, or adapt the Links in any manner without Profit Kings Media’ written approval. Links must be served from the Profit Kings Media server, unless otherwise permitted in writing by Profit Kings Media. Affiliate shall not take any actions to impede the action of or to disable any such links. Affiliate agrees to, if request by Profit Kings Media, modify or alter Links or Tracking devices in the manner requested by Profit Kings Media. Affiliate further agrees that it shall in no event modify or interfere with Tracking devices unless specifically instructed to do so by Profit Kings Media in accordance with the previous sentence.
    5.2 Seeds
    If a Program for email distribution includes a requirement for a sample email (“Seeds”) to be sent to email address(s) to be provided to Affiliate for approval prior to being marketed by Affiliate, you agree not to market a Program until approval has been granted. Seeds may also be required to be included in the email list when using a Program, and you agree to include Seeds in your list when using a Program with this requirement.
    6. Fraud.
    Profit Kings Media actively monitors traffic for fraud. If fraud is detected, Affiliate’s account will be made inactive pending further investigation. Affiliate accounts are flagged that, among other things
    • Have click-through or conversion rates that are much higher than industry averages and where solid justification for such higher click-through or conversion rates is not evident to the reasonable satisfaction of Profit Kings Media;
    • Have ONLY click or lead generation programs generating clicks or leads with no indication by site traffic that it can sustain the clicks or leads reported;
    • Have shown fraudulent leads as determined by the Advertisers;
    • Have used any incentives to procure clicks or leads
    • Have provided leads obtained other than through intended consumer action. For instance, use of phone books, or similar such compilations of personal data, to complete lead generation forms shall be considered fraudulent behavior.
    • Use fake redirects, automated software, and/or other fraudulent mechanisms to generate Events from the Programs.
    If Affiliate fraudulently adds leads or clicks or inflates leads or clicks by fraudulent traffic generation (such as pre- population of forms or mechanisms not approved by Profit Kings Media or use of sites in co-registration campaigns that have not been approved by Advertiser), as determined solely by Profit Kings Media, Affiliate will forfeit its entire commission for all programs and its account will be terminated. If Affiliate is notified that fraudulent activities may be occurring on its Media, and Affiliate fails to take prompt action to stop the fraudulent activities, then, in addition to any other remedies available to Profit Kings Media, Affiliate shall be responsible for all costs and legal fees arising from these fraudulent activities. In addition, in the event that Affiliate has already received payment for fraudulent activities, Profit Kings Media reserves the right to seek credit or remedy from future earnings or to demand re-imbursement from Affiliate.
    7. Payment.
    Affiliate will be paid per the terms of each Program. Profit Kings Media shall pay any amounts due approximately 30 days after the end of each month, less any taxes required to be withheld under applicable law, provided that Profit Kings Media may, in its discretion, withhold payments until such time as the Advertiser has paid Profit Kings Media for any Program and does not guarantee payment if the Advertiser does not pay Profit Kings Media. In addition to any other remedies that may be available to Profit Kings Media, in the event of any breaches by Affiliate of these Terms and Conditions, Affiliate shall forfeit its rights to any amounts owed by Profit Kings Media to Affiliate. Profit Kings Media reserves the right to reduce any payments owed to Affiliate as a consequence of any offsets taken by Advertisers for invalid Events, technical errors, tracking discrepancies and the like. Any questions regarding the data provided by Profit Kings Media need to be submitted in writing within 10 business days of receipt, otherwise the information will be deemed accurate and accepted as such by Affiliate. Profit Kings Media will not pay for any Events that occur before a Program is initiated, or after a Program terminates. Invoices submitted to Profit Kings Media and payments made to Affiliate shall be based on the Events as reported by Profit Kings Media via Profit Kings Media will not be responsible to compensate Affiliate for Events that are not recorded due to Affiliate’s error. Profit Kings Media will require a Affiliate to provide a W-9, and similar such information, as a condition to payment.
    Each Program shall have its own criteria for determining the validity of a lead (the “Lead Requirements”). Profit Kings Media may detect and track all Invalid Leads, which are determined on a real-time basis. Profit Kings Media shall only pay for leads deemed valid by this system. At the sole discretion of Profit Kings Media, leads may also subsequently be deemed invalid for (i) fraudulent activities including but not limited to changing approved lead generation forms, publishing an offer on an unapproved site, utilizing automated software or manpower to complete co-registration forms, incentivization of co-registration forms and/or a Affiliate's inability to provide the user IP and time/date stamp for each lead or (ii) non-compliance with co-registration programs including but not limited to exceeding lead caps as communicated by a Profit Kings Media Account Executive and/or going live with a Program prior to approval.
    8. Term.
    The initial terms of the Terms and Conditions shall be for one year from the date of its first execution by the last party to so execute. Upon the one year anniversary of the execution, this agreement shall automatically renew for successive thirty (30) day terms, unless: (a) not less than thirty (30) days prior to the date of any such automatic renewal, a party notifies the other in writing that it does not wish to renew this agreement; or (b) this agreement is otherwise earlier terminated pursuant to the provisions hereof.
    9. Termination.
    Profit Kings Media reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to terminate a Program and remove any advertisements at any time for any reason, upon written notice to Affiliate. Upon removal of any advertisements, Affiliate shall terminate the Program and immediately cease emailing and any traffic involved with removed advertisement(s). Profit Kings Media also reserves the right to terminate Affiliate’s access to the Site at any time without notice.
    Termination notice will be provided via e-mail and will be effective immediately, meaning, among other things, that Affiliate must immediately cease all advertising activities. All moneys then due to Affiliate will be paid during the next billing cycle. The representations, warranties and obligations contained in paragraphs, 12, 13, 14 and 15 shall remain in full force and effect after termination.
