This particular product, has their own affiliate program, and recently got sent an automated email stating " Congratulations you have made an affiliate sale, and will get $48.50 commission (50%), but when I logged in, it showed zero sales.
I emailed them, and they told me it was a mistake, and I would not get anything........Felt a little dissapointed, but accepted it.
last Friday, I got another automated email saying "Congratulations, you have made $48.50 affiliate commission", and again logged into the affiliate program ......... no sale again, and was told this time
"it was the sale of another affiliate, and they are getting the affiliate commission , not you"
Since then , I have found out that the affiliate who got the commission is in partnership with the product developer!
Do you think I am being ripped off ?............. Is this a possible scam?
I've worked hard to promote this product, and put up a page on it's own domain and now feel I'm wasting my time.......... Please help me with any advice or suggestions.
