Since there was no mention of when affiliates would be paid anywhere on the site and I like to try and keep track of things a little, I sent an email to their support department asking about it.
Just got a reply this morning:
"We will pay out affiliates who made a minimum of $20.00 in February."
If they were upfront about it, then that's cool, but it wasn't mentioned anywhere - probably because most people wouldn't have promoted it had they know they'd have to wait 5 months to be paid.
The other thing that rubbed me the same way is that there's a $20 minimum payout.
If it was mentioned on the site, then it's not a big deal, but it wasn't. I did earn more than $20, but a lot of people wouldn't have, won't know about it and won't be paid.
Is this ethical? What do you think?
