I’m in an affiliate program where my commissions keep getting reversed. Getting kind of frustrated seeing sales come in but just keep getting reversed.

This means that they are getting lots of refunds and/or chargebacks.

I would typically recommend that you avoid affiliates programs like this as it is likely a low quality service, and the fact that customers that you recommend to this service are refunding it may not bode the best for your brand.

They state that people are using promo codes on them and they can't give me a commission when people use a promo code. They are not getting refunds or chargebacks or anything. They are quality products, but I feel they are skimming affiliates and hiding behind the fact that they state someone uses a promo code.

True, low quality products get a lot of refunds.

Also check your content - are you misleading the reader in anyway?

They are not a low-quality product. The affiliate manager just tells me they are using promo codes and decline why sale when they come in.

Kind of losing trust in them. 2 out of 2 commissions have been reversed so far. I have sold $402 worth of products for them and should receive $60.32. However, I have gotten zero credit for sales.

It's just a review of their product. Not misleading or anything. I can send you the link PM if you want to look.

Yep, reversals tend to be due to a crappy product. If people are wanting their money back 9 times out of 10 it's because they're not satisfied with what they've purchased. Sounds like it's time to look for an alternative (better) product to promote.

It would also be wise to look through your promotional content & make sure that what you're not setting false expectations. For example if a product is great, but I told them "X" about it and it wasn't true - they'd probably want a refund after finding out.

They won't give commissions because people are using promo codes. It's a way to skim affiliates I believe. Can send you a link via PM if you want to look at my page, but getting annoyed with reversing affiliate earnings.

I would abandon that affiliate program immediately - they’re using YOUR money to fund their customers discounts.

Yeah, I am considering just switching it back to Amazon affiliate links for them because they keep screwing me. That is $402 for them and 0 for me.

Sounds like a crappy product buddy. People might be getting refunds, or, the affiliate program is ripping you off. What is it out of curiosity?

They sell essential oil nebulizers. I can tell you who they are in a PM. They are quality products, but they keep reversing sales because they say someone used a promo code on them. I believe it's just smoke in mirrors, though.

I have a website I am hoping to get fully developed soon. I want a custom sidebar that I can assign user roles to. It needs to integrate with Easy Digital Downloads. Basical

I have learnt something too

Thanks Richard

Hey Garen,

You may find it best to seek out themes for membership sites. And just to give you a "heads up"... it is my understanding that membership sites cannot be hosted on WA servers... though, please DO verify that fact with SiteSupport https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/support as I am only repeating here what I have seen others state as a fact. But I have not seen any written ruling to that effect.

Hope you find this helpful.

Thanks, I understand, but it's not a membership website. They just need to login to pay and they download their file instantly.

If they need to login then they're members.
