    Anyone have the inside scoop on why Marketbay is shutting down? If you send traffic to any of their offers you should start redirecting it now.

    Today i was told suddenly that All commission made from 1st-15th o July will be paid out in mid August, due to Banking problems... Does this mean that they have shut down and are taking all funds with them as damage control ?

    The notice they posted on their site states the reason why.


    Shit traffic, blackhat traffic, fraud traffic = Advertisers not paying = Network is buried in debt = Death of network.

    They said they would. Apparently they removed the minimum threshold to get everybody paid.

    I now got an email from them:

    Dear Affiliate,

    We would like to inform you that the affiliate payout scheduled for August 15th, 2012 will not be issued. We will provide you more information regarding your payments at a later date.
    Best regards,
    MarketBay Team

    Why are they stopping this??
    Are not they getting the results they are expecting???
    If they stops like this they must get some negative impressions to the clients.

    There US phone is disconnected and the UK is not answering.

    Do you think we got scammed and they will never pay ?

    Their site is back up, and when i logged in, it is now showing me a paycheck to receive on 1st of September. I am not sure if they are actually going to pay this, but their payment platform is regulated by Commerce Gate, so the money can't just vanish. Hoping the best, to get my money on 1st of Sept. Cheer up!

    I can login without any problems but it seems that I haven't been paid.

    Maybe you have a 0$ balance so you have been purged from the system?
