    Hi everyone,

    I have been checking my affiliate commissions for the last month now and even though I have been over their minimum thresh-hold for the whole entire month they havn't paid out a cent to me. It has been too long and am starting to think they are a scam. I don't really want to keep wasting my time with them if they are only wanting to get their product out there and not pay me for it.

    Cheers!

    Really? Well, I have been pushing their software for the past 10 or so days and accrued $200 or so. I really hope they pay or else I need to stop promoting their offer.

    It's been past 30 days and I havn't received any sort of payment, and my PayPal details are correct. Would like to spend some of my spare time promoting them but if they're not paying I don't want to bother with them anymore and move on to something better that has a 99% or better successful payment record. What other similar programs would you personally recommend?

    Also how much $$$ are you spending to get the $200 a month? Being a student I don't have much $$$ to play around with, and I spent the last of my PayPal funds on signing up to the toastmasters to help enhance my grades and buy a proper dress suit (building my career is higher priority than the BH I.M stuff at the moment).

    I was thinking about creating a YouTube campaign but there is no point if the vendor (e.g Graboid) doesn't pay up.

    sfidirectory, have you waited longer than 30 days past the month where you met the minimum payment threshold? Since Graboid pays net 30, you should have received a payment for January earnings by now, but February earnings would be paid at the end of March. I'd really like to know since I'm currently promoting them as well.

    I've waited since the middle of January. It sucks that I have put alot of work into getting sales etc (have got 20 in the last week alone) but looks like I'm going to get nothing out of it now. I think I am going to find out who their competition is (PM me if anyone knows any) and maybe give them a go.

    Who are you currently targeting for installs? Maybe you're promoting to an audience that's not converting to paid accounts very well? Which country are you getting most visitors from? Anyway, good luck to you, hope you get this sorted out.

    Hey Everybody!! :)

    Never fear, my friends....I made some nice dough with Graboid for a little while this past summer. They have always paid and I've had no problems whatsoever. They have an awesome, well-converting affiliate program. Also, I suggest linking directly to the download page of their software when you're pushing links :) But anyway, I've included a screenshot below for proof that they paid me. I think you're supposed to get paid the following month, after you've earned the money...not at the end of the month when you got the leads. I remember wondering about that too and emailing their support to ask about it. No worries, guys! :)

    Okay, graboid has paid me for my january earnings which were $12. I am expecting over $200 for the month February by the end of this month. I think they will pay me as I am sending high quality traffic to them currently.

    I will definitely attach a screenshot here if I am paid for the month of Feb.

    As for sfidirectory's question : I know of no other such programs other than Graboid. I am spending $30-$40 to make $200. Its basically automated atm. Hoping to make $500 or more this month doing just 2 hours of work the whole month.

    Forget graboid and move on.. I stopped working with them nearly a year back.. Initially they started shaving, but when you contact them they will be so nice and reply pleasantly. I got paid, but was sure the conversion was way higher than what the paid. However I don't trust them.

    Instead use google affiliate network (netflix, history), linkshare(itunes) and so on, get a white hat income from your niche. You can work long term if and only if you turn white hat in this niche..
