Anyone a successful PayDotCom Affiliate

8 replies
Hi Warriors.

Who here is a PayDotCom affiliate and more to the point how do you find the program, such as ease of payment from the vendor you promote!

Also who here is a PayDotCom vendor....?

And what success have you had using there affiliate market place to gather affiliates?

I am thinking of trying out there site for a membership site, but still undecided!

All input appreciated.

Thanks!

Colin.

    Hi Colin,

    I can't call myself a "successful" PayDotCom affiliate, but I have promoted, I think, three PayDotCom products (all a while ago).

    I don't and won't use it any more.

    From my perspective, there's just no need to let my business be reliant on vendors paying me what I'm owed (they vary, unsurprisingly): it's just a "whole additional layer of potential problems" I don't need at all, when there are 14,000+ active products on ClickBank, without that problem.

    This is where ClickBank, DigiResults and RapBank have a huge advantage, in my opinion, from the affiliate perspective: security of payment without relying on the vendor for it.

    I do see that for well-established vendors who already have their affiliates lined up, PayDotCom might work out ok. But I suspect that many professional affiliates (i.e. the ones vendors most want on board) won't look at it with great interest just because of the risks of non-payment/slow payments: it's a worry we don't need.

    Just my perspective; sorry.

      Hi Alexa.

      Thanks, what can I say that pretty much sums it up for me and to be honest
      that was the answer i was looking for and expected to get from affiliates!

      Thanks

      Will stick with what works, why fix something that's not broken right?

      Good ol ClickBank it is then!

        Has anyone tried PayGear? I got $50 credit for fees a while back when the owner posted a code for it. I have a few products in for sale but I'm newish so I'm driving traffic, not even worrying about getting affiliates for it. There are items to sell there, but.. I'm sticking with WSO affiliate for now.

          One thing to note with affiliate networks:

          There are "Single Sign-On" which is what ClickBank (and PayDotCom) is. You sign up, you can now promote ALL the products.

          There there is Sign-On plus permission: This is like Commission Junction, where you must then ask each product vendor for permission to promote their products and they can (and do) say no, depending on certain criteria such as web traffic and the type of site you have, etc.

          Affiliate Marketing is as varied as marketing in the real world - it is all over the map and that is a good thing! Makes it easier to come up with new and unique ways to promote products and services or unleash your own.

            Ok guys and girls,

            Thanks for all your input, for now I think were going to stick with our own in house affiliate program invitees only and then experiment with ClickBank.

            Were not relying on affiliates, it was mainly to help out with promo through the forum for the site launch so no worries.

            Thanks all!

            So it was relatively easy for me to pick up affiliates with a nice looking site that converted pretty well.

            They charge(d) $3 per sale for venders then - and relied on vendors to pay affiliates - not sure if that's how they still do it or not.
