    i used to work with clickbank before they banned p2p sites and i made about 2,000$ a month for over a year. two months ago i started to work with yourclick.com who offer the same sites of platinumpartners( Themoviedownload, moviesnet) and i am doing about 500$ a month with the same traffic. is there an alternative to yourclick.com? . these guys are stealing a lot of money from me!!!!
    :eek:

    I dont know, I have to say absolute opposite to your story, with clickbank my conversions were as low as 1:1000 but now its aroun 1:300 so im earning 3 times more...

    But the refund rate is larger than in clickbank...

    I have gotten paid and i think they are cool...

    I think I have to agree with eestisiin on yourclick. They seemed promising to me. I don't know about the ratio, it is pretty high. It is not that attractive for me yet, may be because it is in the early stage. But I am sure time can solve it.

    i am promoting mainly themoviedownload. and another thing, they are willing to pay u only from 1,000$ so if u got 800$ this month u have to wait for the next month and then they would take around 150$ from this money to reserve that would be release 2 months later.
    they pay on time as promised, that the only good thing i can tell about them.

    I can't say it is a scam, as I have received all of my payments on time from them...however, what I can say is that their conversion rate when compared to Clickbank is absolutely terrible!

    I'm beginning to wonder if they're shaving sales from me.

    I used Clickbank to promote P2P products for 2 years prior to them declining all P2P related traffic. In 2008 I made about $70,000 in P2P affiliate sales alone (using clickbank). I would send super highly targeted traffic for a conversion rate that held steady at about 1:95 to 1:130

    When I switched to Yourclick in April my conversion rate absolutely went to crap! I convert now (same amount and same targeting of traffic) at about 1:250 to 1:310...amazingly dissapointing stats there.

    Anybody else having a similar experience?

    @crazyflx, I have seen some of your articles on the web since we are both in the same niche...

    I honestly think these bastards are shaving commissions! I'm experiencing lower conversions as well, now that i have switched from CB to yourclick.com Most of my campaigns start out really well, and after about a week or so they just fall off and the sales do not stay coming in. The worse day I had with them was when I sent them 6k in traffic and didn't receive not one sale.

    @proxyme, I market a few sites on affibank.com I havent really noticed any shaving or anything like that going on, so...

    I think yourclick.com has some sort of under-the-desk relationship with clickbank. they run TV2PC type product 50% with clickbank and 50% with vxsbill.

    I wouldn't say they are scam, because they pay ontime. $1000 block is a complete B.S. which they need to review.

    They are one of the worst affiliate networks in terms of Sharing-of-Information. If you come up with a creative idea and apply that in your campaign and if it is a "hit".. then these yourclick guys will copy you from A-Z and run the same campaign themselves and through some of their trusted affiliates.

    They are all about copying ideas and stealing intellectual properties. Their signup pages are basically copy of yottacash.com sign up pages.

    These are all same companies: -- Platinum Partner = Yourclick = Market Bay

    My suggestion is.. if you are not doing anything creative, stick to platinum partner/yourclick/marketbay ... otherwise look elsewhere. The good thing about big aff networks is that they won't tell other affiliates what Affiliate A or B are doing and how they are doing things. 7/10 people affiliate networks will do all sorts of S%%T.

    Another bad thing is, they don't do rebuttals when people ask for refunds. So, you will see high refund rate in their platform.

    Since they changed from YourClick to Market Bay at the start of the month and give us new links to use I'm finding that conversions seem lower and refunds seem higher. Is anybody else experiencing the same thing?

    This month is still a lot slower than previous months. Last month was my best to date with them so I'm very disappointed at how things are going this month. Maybe it's a seasonal thing and people just aren't spending as much in December?

    I dont know how you found yourclick.com, but after CB got rid of all the P2P products i found them turning up on http://www.affibank.com/affiliate_programs

    Cant say anything about shaving or not paying tho.

    But maybe switch your traffic over to these guys for a week or so and see if you get better results?

    I read all your posts and just had to let you guys know that there is another great site not mentioned. Give Verotel a try. I've been a reseller with them since 2003 and never been dissapointed. They have a minimum $50 payout and they have never failed on sending me my weekly wire transfer.
    As P2P reseller programs go, I've been reselling Iwannadownload through them with a click to buy average ratio of 1:105 for years now until recently with the recession hitting with that ratio falling to approximately 1:180
    Unfortunately, Verotel has not been taking on any new P2P sites but I'm told they kept Iwannadownload since they have been with them for so long (2002)
    There monthly rate is currently only at $4.95/month but since its a reliable service, my average recurr rate with Iwannadownload sits at about 60% so your revenue grows each and every month. As I mentioned, I've been with them for years now and I honestly don't want to say how much mine has grown to but Im very happy to say the least..lol
    On another note, I am told that there is a serious site revamp coming soon which will come with a price increase to $9.95/month which I'm looking forward to ;)
    Anywho...I know how hard things can be sometimes with all the scam sites out there so I thought I'd share with ya'll with my goings on.
    Best of luck!

    Im on marketbay(yourclick), yottacash, and plenty of others although I send most of my traffic to yottacash because I thought their final check out page looked best but my conversions suck. I will try other networks but they look the same. I also push UseNext which is actually legit(I actually use it to download stuff) but I cant get it to convert like I could in the past(at one point the twinplan network was paying 25 euro per free trial sign up and I was getting 1/30 conversions, now its 1/hundreds and the best payouts I can find on any network right now is 17usd) So now I am not sure what to promote.. I am gonna try LoudMo and pinballnetwork(both ppi) but I would have to get insane conversions for a reasonable epc so I probably wont stay with either. If anyone knows any other networks, please post! I miss the days when I was getting 1/150 coversion and $30 sales on clickbank when they still had p2p, I want that back lol

    Sorry to double post but zml.com looks very good, it seems you need to have an invite code for the affiliate program though.. It only pays 30%, but its reoccurring, take a look at the site and the check out page, that has to convert great. Its $.99 and no where on the CC page does it say anything about reoccurring fees(in 24 hours $40 is charged, and that repeats monthly) I bet it converts double or tripple of the others, I am hoping the reoccurring commissions will make up for the 30%. They have bought out a ton of ads on google, so they have to be getting a fat roi.. Anyone promote them?

    Marketbay or Yourclick is a joke! They have to be shaving... I sent them 2,645 in traffic today and only 2 sales. This shit is really starting to piss me off.

    Does anyone know of a good alternative? I don't really like yottacash either, so anything else besides these?

    I switched my traffic over to loudmo and its making me much more, around 4 times better epc, but Im not sure of epc because loudmo just shows installs not clicks (if anyone doesnt already have an account with loudmo, please pm me to sign up under me and I'll show you some tips I've been using use to help conversions)
