Azoogle (Epic Media Group) Going down?

Discussion in 'Affiliate Programs' started by galaxygold, Nov 28, 2011.

    Azoogle / EpicDirectNetwork is not paying most of its affiliates since may 2011. Reason they are telling them is of "technical nature", sometimes "Bank Issue" and some times their AM's just avoid affiliates. Is this really happening? I my self have 4 months of earnings stuck there and still I hear every time I ask them stories that I'll be paid next week and this keeps on and on. I was even told those who are doing good volume with them are getting paid but average affiliates are not. Is this really happening with you as well? It started from a simple excuse "Bank Issue" with me and Now I hear from some folks who used to be with azoogle that they are having cash flow problems. If that's the case, Is azoogle still a #1 choice for Affiliates?

    Yes, you are right. They were good at a time. But now there are several companies which you can join and get paid at time.

    There was a time when I was making a lot with azoogle and I got paid weekly. But when my traffic went down and so does my performance on azoogle I haven't received any payment from them since june... I guess there really is something happening with azoogle.

    I just hope that I can still get paid.. But for now I stop all traffic going to them.

    I got paid up until August, but only after I emailed them several times. I pulled the pin in October, but am still chasing my September and October earnings.

    If it's a known issue, why is there still a sub-forum on DP for Azoogle? Although not intentionally doing so, it's promoting this aff network, which seems like a disservice to the community if affiliates are not getting paid or they're slow paying.

    It's probably not a bad idea to have a spotlight on Azoogle for the next couple of months until we know whether the ship is actually sinking or not.
    If people can read the top few threads they'll get a pretty good idea of what's going on. If the sub forum goes, these threads will just get buried in the general Affiliate Programs forum.
    ----
    Has anyone NOT from India or Pakistan had their payments refused (not just delayed), or account closed, etc?
    I wonder if they're paying out potential squeaky wheels first.

    I heard they are paying to those who are doing good volumes with them without any prob.
    Ones who are doing it in less quantity or sometime has got the problem of payment.. :|
    Although, whenever I ask them, they say its been solved.

    Looks like I'm out of the payment loop. I've sent several emails, and I'm getting the continuous "you'll be paid soon" treatment.
    It's only about $600. But that's MY $600. Bitches.
    Anyone got paid recently?

    Thanks Chris! :)

    In addition to PeerFly, I recommend checking out these networks:


    1. Amped Media
    2. Direct Agents
    3. MonetizeIt (MediaWhiz)
    4. OFFERweb
    5. Blue Phoenix Media
    6. IronOffers
    7. Affiliate.com
    8. Adscend Media
    9. CPATrend
    10. Cutting Edge Offers

    You shouldn't have a problem with getting paid by any of those networks. :)

    I've sent them one more email requesting my $600 from September.
    Anyone else got an update?

    Interesting that no one has filed a BBB complaint. Especially since they are A+ rated and have the BBB A+ banner on all of their sites.

    Strange! DP used to be a great forum for such resolutions, Company rep's would take action and post a quick response CAN YOU SEE THIS HAPPENING? no one is here to to tell us why is it happening? Coz, perhaps they don't care anymore.
