    I've promoted them for about 3 months now, not very hard, made around $300 from them and got paid all the time, on time.

    But the last checked I cashed from them for $23.50 last month bounced, and I got charged a $15 bad check fee. I submitted a ticket to them and they're seemed responsive until I told them the dates it bounced haven't heard from them in 2 weeks.

    No shit??....

    That doesn't sound too good..

    with the banks all closing up and shit... It wouldn't surprise me if a couple AFF networks shut their doors...

    it's too bad... I thought they were some legit high standing network?!?!

    I mean they paid on time and never once had a problem until this last time, i wouldn't say it's a scam because they did pay me plenty but if you are promoting them now I would probably stop before you lose money because they can't afford payouts..

    I thought they were legit to but I'm not going to continue promoting a company knowing there's a risk of cashing checks and losing money from it because they're bouncing

    I did request them to pay my deducted fee and told them the check that errored, i will update as to their response if i ever get anymore.

    Use epassporte. They will have no excuse, and they will have to pay. They once didnt pay on time, I contacted Epassporte they confirmed webcams didnt pay, I told webcams the storry and i have my payment the next day. Dont freak out , they have been good with me. 23.50 only? Go make more sales! The more sales the better they treat you

    I have had no problems with Webcams but I will watch closely. I have some models that I use for shows and have only just started on the affiliate program mainly to drive traffic to my models. I hope all is OK this is the first time I have heard of any problems. Why not call and speak to your affiliate manager. I received only yesterday an email with some more of their promo stuff. Hey let us know how you get on. Webcams was one of the best and if they go down many will be hurting.

    They cancelled my $50 commission without any reason. Webcams are more becoming like a big scam site.

    I had the same issue. I sent them an email and they said they would take care of it so I am not worried

    Two and a half months now, got paid once and they still owe me nearly $300. Supposedly a check for half that was issued and would "take up to 4 weeks to arrive", 5th week now and nothing. I made a point to go get epassporte to make it easier on them, and still nothing. To add insult to injury, epassporte won't validate my account (even though they had no problem taking from it, to get their initial $25) so I have no choice but to pay too much for their stupid card.

    And of course, today I am magically switched to revshare. I recommend that if your payment is late at all with this place to stop promoting them. If you wait 'up to 4 weeks' for a check, you're probably just going to be giving them free traffic for a month. Definitely epassporte from the get go and stop funding them if they stop funding you, lol. Should have known better since EVERYONE says that's what they do.

    I had that happen a long time ago, keep on them! I kept emailing back and forth through their ticket system and went in and replied everyday. They did finally come through. Also, be sure to double check your address in your account settings as the problem was that the website deleted my city and state on that page. Hope this helps.

    I just signed up and am curious if I should go forward with promoting them. Is it a no go? Are they scammers?

    Waiting to hear from you guys...

    They are not a scam site. Generally, they pay like clockwork. I do know the owner has made a concerted effort lately to weed out the unprofitable affiliates. If you were converted to revshare, it just means your traffic sucks. If you are not using epassporte, it can take over a month to receive a check. I think they must use donkeys or something to transport the mail from Panama.

    If they think your conversion rate simulates chat traffic (i.e. less than 1/20), they will eventually lower your payout rate. If this happens, just make sure you have a blog with links or something that you can point them to to get your rate increased.

    Just a quick update on this, after weeks of tickets and shit with them. They mentioned that their bank they were using had "ran out of money" haha ok?

    But anyway they sent me my earnings + $20 extra to cover my "bounced check fee" i got from my bank...

    So at least they weren't intentionally screwing with me
