Ashley Madison , Affiliate Scam Beware !!!

Discussion in 'Commission Junction' started by Ozzi, Jul 10, 2009.

    Hello everyone, I have seen this type of posts about Ashley Madison before but I have always been suspicious and thought I should give them a try and found out myself.

    After 14 leads (42$ and no sells yet) and almost 2 1/2 months its time for me to get paid for those leads right ? Wrong!
    SEMrush
    All leads leveled to 0$, no explanation why . I have gone strictly by their agreement but seems like they can do whatever they want to do. Somewhere on these forums someone mentioned that you have to convert the leads into sells but I can assure you that's not what their CJ info says.

    Anyways, beware if you are about to start promoting Ashley Madison. You will not get paid for leads , not sure about sells.

    P.S. keep in mind they will drag you for 2 months + before they eventually pay you too.

    wow...that's really not good. Sounds kind of stupid in my opinion. Why would anyone want to wait that long to get paid anyhow. Other places pay in weeks....some less.

    I am pretty sure its says "Female Sign Up" on the leads, as they don't count male sign ups. So at the end they discount the female sign ups too.

    I wonder how is CJ feeling about this as AM is playing with their pocket too.

    There might be a minimum amount that you have to earn before being paid a commission.

    There are plenty of other offers to promote on CJ. Don't really fret over the ashley madison offer.

    Ashley Madison won't pay you for any leads, only sales.
