    Beware: Fonality aff program ALL REVERSED
    Been promoting them on my blog for a while. extremely targetted traffic and for all the strage reason, I noticed that they have ALWAYS reversed the leads.

    Almost 30+ leads at $15 and not paid a single time? Something is wrong.

    I sent them email, duh they dont reply. Beware of this crappy little merchant.

    I always thought they have reputation but guess i got it now pretty much.

    Does their program require the user to purchase or signup with a credit card? If not you could have had a lot of fake leads and they reversed them.

    No its a lead which doesnt require a CC, so they just dont want to pay their affiliate. Looking at their pathetic network earnings, i can figure that out now. Anyways its a petty cash for me.

    Just wanted to give heads up to everyone.

    A dollar is a dollar. None of it's petty.

    Offers such as theirs without CC or such usually has a high fraud rate. Though there have been instances of merchants scamming too.

    Best to move on to another merchant that's more solid.

    Absolutely. Even a few cents you make with each google adsense click add up and boost your bottomline. Nothing is petty so long as its a positive number.

    $450 is not petty, I have expired relationships for $10 reversals.

    Why? If a merchant has a legitimate reason for reversing, then why would you expire a merchant after a $10 reversal?

    Unless the $10 reversal was on a test purchase that you or somebody you know made and you are absolutely certain that the order wasn't cancelled.

    I didn't say that was one reversal. I just said 10.00. if all were .50 that would be 20 sign ups. they all couldn't be false. I know that in the business of sales we return or cancel orders that is fine. But when everything is reversed you contact and no one returns a call or email. then it is time to move on. Someone elses banner or link can take their place.
