hey i am also facing the same problems.

I spent $50 on advertising and from my ehoring activity some people confirmed that they signed up but my stats do not show any signups.

I also sent PM to Foot Mark in this regard but no reply yet.

Its not Only Sign up can bring credits.. The person who signed up under your referral must login through the login details sent to their email ID soon after they signed up, then after logging in, they must accept the terms and conditions and as soon as they are done with accepting T & C, you will get credited and it will be on your stats report by next 1hr at max.

Now Only signing up does not gonna bring you any money if they did not login and accepted our T & C.

I think it is common sense. What I am complaining abt is confirmed signups.

I also got a message from your support desk that you are no longer paying for girl signups but only guys.

Someone asked me via PM about this program, so I am posting here. I sent traffic and had people join up to the free program. They most likely don't live in any of the major countries that are eligible for the $4 pps, so I obviously got no commissions. However, for me it wasn't worth it and I'll switch back to sending my traffic where I used to in the past. I can't say anything looks fishy here. I sent traffic, people joined, but they weren't from countries that were accepted.

*EDIT*
What does country of origin show up as UNKNOWN?

We didn't find or fix it tonight, but we did find something odd that we are continuing to explore. Hang in there, or send your traffic else were... We will update you tomorrow again and we do hope to find an issue, and I will explain later why this has been hard to find.

thanks,
jason

Tomorrow was 2 days ago.

I'll save you the trouble with finding the issue. I have found the source of your problem.

Lets see if I can hit the nail square on the head here.

Your problem is with Dating Gold. Your biller. They have been known to shave sales before. You are basically an Affiliate for Dating Gold and make some money on each Free Signup that your Affiliates generate under hookup.com. Nothing wrong with that.

You keep saying that you are "working to fix the problem". But you are only stalling for time. With your fingers crossed that your biller will fix the problem in the meantime and then you can come and tell us all about this hard to find problem that you managed to fix. You have zero control over this. You are not the one shaving sales. I believe that you are honest, Jason, and I do believe that you really do want your Affiliates to make as much money as possible. Your biller, Dating Gold, is the only one that will benefit from shaving sales. I'm sure that you don't know exactly what is happening to peoples commissions. You have probably been working with Dating Gold to find out what the problem is. They have been giving you the run around and feeding you excuses about what is happening.

Here is a quote from a PM that I received from Lonny41. He gave me his permission to quote him and mention his User Name.

From Lonny41:

Remember you told me about dating gold and hookup?

Well i ran some traffic to dg to see how it was. It's the exact same conversion ratio as hookup.

I contacted my AM on dg 3 times and 3 times he said he was talking to tech with no results, and excuses.

So here's my theory.

The problem is at dg, not hookup, that's why they can't fix it and keep putting people off.

Also, stats sometimes freeze at dg for the same lenght of time as they did at hookup, then they all show later, same issues, dunno why I never figured it out before.

If you're going to push for hookup you mays well get $5 a sale from dg rather than $4. If you want my aff link let me know, if not that's fine too, you been a great help.

At least there are many clueless noobs that keep signing up with hookup even with all of these posts complaining of lost commissions. The experienced marketers are the ones that know when something is seriously wrong and have already bailed. But it probably takes at least 100 clueless noobs to generate the same amount of signups that one experienced marketer can generate. Probably more.

I have made a lot of money the first Pay Period in July sending my traffic elsewhere. And I never started sending my traffic elsewhere until late in the day on July 2nd and I have not missed hookup one bit. If things improve, I'll try hookup again.

Have I hit this nail squarely on the head?

If anyone is interested to know who I am sending my traffic to, just PM me.

MikeLac, this is 100% true. They are definitely an offshoot of DatingGold. Exact same suppression list for both sites. I'll ask Brandon (the head AM there) about what is going on with the conversions. I have known him for a long time.

That's the problem. How can you be certain you are being credited for countries on the payout list if the metrics you have access to are not complete? If traffic is categorized as "unknown"?

Hookup has added client-side demographics reporting for conversions on PPF/PPS, but not for raw and unique traffic. Without that data there is no way to know whether affiliates are being properly credited for signups originating from the four countries on the pay list: Australia, UK, USA and Canada.

you havent got your payment?
i got my paypal payment for last period on 11th..5 days ago..
Yes I was paid yesterday evening after contacting Jason. He's traveling on business That could be behind the delay.

I was on a weekly payment schedule due to volume of my traffic, so I'm not holding my payments to the same standard as those receiving bi-monthly payments: manual entry is required.

For those affiliates paid 2x month, I'm not sure why travel, weekends or holidays are a variable, given that payment is automated through a third party biller. Payments should be automated and on time for others.

That's exactly why I've been saying the "biller" is the problem as I've know they were a DG whitelabel since the very first paid signup I got. How? Because if you leave the email notifications on when you get a paid signup it says "biller: DATINGGOLD".

But hey it was good while it lasted and it seems like everyone got paid so overall it's turned out better then most short lived networks. Plus who knows maybe he'll find another biller and get things rolling again. With the shortage of networks we can actually trust to pay us I kinda hope he does find another biller.

That is exactly how I linked hookup.com and Dating Gold together. Because Dating Gold is listed as the "biller" on every paid signup email that I get. :)

I really hope that Jason can get things sorted out with his biller, DG. Or at least find a suitable replacement. Jason is a really nice guy and I'd send my traffic back to him in a second when (or if) things get fixed.

But I have one rule of thumb that I always follow when promoting any Affiliate Network.

If I am making good money with an Affiliate Network, then I don't care if the owner is an ass, I'll keep sending my traffic there. If I AM NOT making good money with an Affiliate Network, then I don't care if the owner is the nicest guy in the world, I'll send my traffic elsewhere. :D
