    They run a few dating offers:

    Just Hook Up, Rudefinder, Date Agency, Flirt Crowd and Find Me Love.

    They payout biweekly on the 1st and 16th of every month. I started running traffic at the beginning of December '11. I have yet to receive a payment.

    Their affiliate managers seem to not care either and it's obvious from their short email replies.


    So stay away. Run their shit through a CPA network. At least then, they'll get your money for you.

    Update:

    I'm looking in my date-connected dashboard at my past conversions and noticed the leads that turned into sales were deleted. I was doing a pay per lead campaign, but i know i had at least five converted sales.

    Wow....this guy, who is/was my aff manager, is a fucking piece of shit.

    This person Nickolas P.-E. is a piece of shit... I am not sure if he is still working there, they have probably kicked him out for the damage he has caused to their business and reputation...

    This Nickolas P.-E. guy probably wanted to take revenge from company/ maybe he has mental illness or get money from a competitor... But he did his mission right and he insulted many of their good affiliates

    Hey Guys, (The real Nickolas P.-E.)

    I'm not sure what's gone on or been said here but I'm not happy my name has been tarnished nor JDI's!

    Jdi was probably one of the best companies I have spent years with. They helped mature from 'Twenteen' year old to a man. I learnt many values with the company and they gave me some absolutely fantastic opportunities. I only left JDI due to becoming a proud father and moving to another city.

    Cheers Jake for the slightly harsh response there btw. Regardless, Billy, Chris, Sophy, Andy, Craig and all of the rest of the team are amazing people and work unbelievably hard to ensure that affiliates get paid for quality traffic. There has been some bugs in the pipeline which happens when your growing a fantastic business on such a huge scale but i can ensure sure, they get fixed with an on hand dev team that also work tirelessly to ensure that your traffic converts as highly as poss with smooth running of sites etc.

    Affiliates - If you want to get paid for your quality traffic then push traffic to all of the current brands. Keep in touch with your aff manager to get the latest offers and you'll perform with the newest creatives they have.

    Once again - JDI is a fantastic company and i'm still today, very fond of all the people whom supported me during my employment. This company is and will be going places in a big way. Stick with them!

    Have fun and keep it promoting.

    Speak to Andy or Billy for any issues you might have had or are having and they will make it their priority to get it put right.

    Peace out People!

    Lol, 18 months later you stop in to defend yourself. Date-Connected has always been shit, and probably always will be. They're notorious for massive scrubbing, or outright shaving depending on your situation. If you ever split test and offer side by side with one of theirs you'll see exactly what I mean. It's not a flame or anything, I have plenty of hard data to back this up. On the Just Hookup offer for example, I could never get my conversion rate above like 1:20 clicks or so, which translated out to about $0.25 - $0.30 per click. I ran it side by side with 3 other offers and found out that my traffic was actually converting more like 1 in every 10 clicks. I thought it was the CPA I was with at the time. After I seen the same results on the 3rd CPA though I decided I'd had enough. I was always paid on time, but again, I was using a 3rd party CPA each time.

    Not sure if being serious or not.
    Bump an old shitlist thread to promote a network that is mentioned in the shitlist - amazing.
    Kind of proves the shitlist must be true.
