    Gateway Not Paying Affiliates
    Gateway has not paid *March* affiliate commissions.

    This is just unacceptable.

    The scary part is that they seem to be paying a 3rd party to be managing their program.

    Obvious, its horrible that this is the case.

    But, its also pretty lousy that CJ isn't doing anything to stop BFAST merchants from doing stuff like this.

    You can spell Gateway as Dell.com for all the difference it makes.

    Does anybody post a list of regular deadbeat affiliate programs?

    Or should we just start one.

    They're not deadbeats, just really slow players.

    On the merchant side, sometimes with bigger companies it takes a long time to go through all the waves of approval that are necessary to get the payments out. I'm not saying that his is acceptable, just saying it is something I have witnessed. March payments not being paid yet is extremely slow though.

    Use it as a measuring stone to judge if the company treats affiliate commissions as a deferable advertising expense (last to get paid) or a sales commission expense (first on the bill pile)
