DeeCash / MediaRevenue not paying and stealing sales

June 23rd, 2012 1 comment

I have had enough of these guys. I have promoted them on some of my blogs and sites in the past, especially on celebrity sites (elitedollars and rehabdollars before they were united into triplexcash) and they where somewhere good: I had reasonable ratios and they were paying on time. But after they joined some of their programs into triplexcash they have stopped paying and started shaving and stealing my sales and rebills. I have contacted their representatives and sent mails but never got any of the stolen sales and rebills back or got a decent response. This is the reason for putting them on my “Shit List“. Here are some interesting screenshots to backup my claims from above:

First screenshot of 2 missing rebills
MediaRevenue zero dollar rebills - 2 missing sales

Sale was made from their Free Hosted Gallery
MediaRevenue zero dollar rebills - sale was from FHG

Two more rebills later – rebill history is gone
4 rebills equals zero dollars

This years stats with MediaRevenue: 1 sale + 5 rebills = -$12.58

Here’s that one chargeback too. The trial sale was made on Oct 29th 2011, converted to full on Oct 30th 2011, got charged back on Feb 23rd 2012… 3 moths later… yeah right!

So after sending a sponsor 14,000 unique visitors (over 21,000 raw visits) and makeing one sale and five rebills it’s normal to earn something… but not with MediaRevenue… they expect that you pay them for that like they expect me to pay them for that $12.58… That’s fucking insane and I will not accept that in any way.

Here are my all time stats since they merged their programs into triplexcash:

The only reason I’m still sending them traffic is that I have too many blogs and I can’t edit all those links. I have started using script called TALS that should help me to redirect traffic in future at one place to prevent sending traffic to crooks like these…

Here’s a list of all their sites that you should avoid at any cost:

Avoid all sites above at any cost! You will never get paid for the traffic and sales you send them!

The Shit List

Since more and more sponsors are trying to fuck webmasters I’ll be more active in in future in this area and will post my experiences in the The Shit List. In there I’ll expose all non-paying sponsors that you should avoid!

Adult-Profit closed

Those fuckers closed their affiliate program stealing sales and rebills from honest webmasters… Their pay sites are still alive and taking new members… Looks like their new affiliate program is now called so keep away…

Adult-Profit is one of the biggest celebrity sponsors around. They have great promo tools, regularly updated sites and are the only celebrity sponsor (that I know of) that have celebrity comics site that is also selling quite good with comics traffic. On top of that they also have Pornstar, Big Tits and Gay sites that you can promote.

Promo ToolsFirst of all there are lot of picture and video free hosted galleries, followed by free hosted banners. As far as I know they are the only celebrity sponsor providing hosted FLVs ready to be imported into a tube site (running TEVS or NubilesTube script). There is also a hosted TGP site where you can “trade” with them, and if user signs up on any gallery on that site – you’ll get the credit plus you’ll also get your traffic back and that’s really cool feature!

PPS or RevShare
Even though I had good rebills with RevShare it was really hard to get sales on it so I’d suggest using PPS, since I had better ratios, pay per click was bigger or PPS.

My StatsLet’s analyze my stats a bit. I was using Adult-Profit links in TGP submitted galleries, on my TGP sites and on my blogs. There are probably lots of shitty traffic (coming from my TGP sites that were target of some hit bots quite often) so that’s why unique hits and join ratio are so big. From 26,531 unique visitors I had only two RevShare sales and that’s horrible (signup ratio bigger than 1:13,000), but those two made 12 rebills so I actually made $120 per sale over the time and that is really nice. My cost per click on RevShare is something less that $0,01 (actually $0.00907). On the other hand on the PPS from 37,862 unique visitors I had 17 sales $30 each. My join ratio is 1:2,227 and my pay per click is slightly bigger than $0.01 (actually $0.01347). Adult-Profit also has free sites program paying $15 per free signup. I was using it on a site that had a lot of hit-bot traffic so like 50,000 of those hits are probably just bots. Other 15 sales came from a blog (seo traffic) in pretty short term.

Webmaster Refferal ProgramThey are paying 10% of earning of referred webmasters. I have referred five of them but looks like only two were active and made me extra $47.

– good promo tools, lots of Free Hosted Galleries ahd hosted FLVs
– free hosted TGP (really cool thing)

– no blog RSS feeds or even better RSS morphing feeds
– a bit higher join ratio (over 1:1.000) in my case
