    Hi,

    I've got a hostgator affiliate account and have made some 6 sales over the last two months.

    The first sale has been made 58 days ago,

    They say they pay after 60 days.

    But I'm afraid to send more referrals to them.

    anyone got paid by hostgator in time? are they genuine?

    Thanks

    They are genuine as far is i have heard, i have a friend thats a hostgator affiliate and he has nothing bad to say about them, i would say just give them time and see what happens... if they dont pay when they are supposed to then shoot them an email and find out whats going on.

    I have gotten commissions from them several times, they have quite a good affiliate back end with lots of promotional stuff and they pay nice!

    i was paid by hostgator." Your commissions are paid on the last week of each month following the first 60 days after the sale."

    I've gotten paid on time for every referral I've sent HG that resulted in a sale lasting 2 months or longer, which is their TOS.

    Yeah they pay. Couple years ago I referred myself and got paid after couple of months and then canceled service. I made like $20 or something. That was not my intention but I found cheaper hosting somewhere else.

    As far as I know, they are 100% legit..
    How can you think about such a big company to be scamming their affiliates? :)
