RefBan was one of my favorite affiliate programs. However WAS.
Several months ago they changed programmers or I don’t know what, but they totally changed the program. Before I was earning daily money for each active referral and additional commission for each sale a referral made. I’ve had real payments from them for $60. Suddenly it all stopped. They said it was temporary, but no…
At that time I had around $150 in my account, and I couldn’t withdraw them, because I had to have 2 more sales from referral, no big deal – this were the rules (at least $60 in your account and 2 sales from referrals, as I had and advertiser account). One day I logged in my account and I saw I have only $55, and I had not withdraw any money… WHAT THE F*CK HAPPENED?
I wrote to the support, they asked for my account ID, I gave it to them, and I have not received an answer since. I wrote them several times after that, but no one replied. If that’s not a scam, I don’t know what is.
So I couldn’t do much else – I used the rest of the money for advertising – $45 for advertising my banner in different countries (you have to have a minimum of $10 in your account), which are 45 000 impressions. At first it was OK, I was monitoring the impressions in the different countries every day, I had impressions and clicks from all the 9 countries I had selected. After 5 days I logged in to see how the advertising is going, and it said I had only impressions and 1 click from India, not the other countries…. what the hell happened there – I don’t know.
So I stopped using RefBan for good. They were great at the beginning, but now they are a really shitty service!
Sorry for misleading all my 345 referrals there
