    Default VIP.com not paying affiliates?

    I know VIP pulled out of the US ages ago, and I know I probably shouldn't even be counting on anything from them anymore, but still, when I see my $8k fiscal-quarter total suddenly drop to $4k, and then get a check in the mail for $1800 my blood starts to boil.

    To add insult to injury, I haven't had a reply to my email from over a month ago.

    Anyone else not been paid, or not been paid right?

    VIP pays quarterly... and do not start the process until about the 15th of the month following the quarter... (In other words, they should be processing 1Q payments in the next 2 weeks).

    They have no staff except for Blake and he isn't full time on VIP Profits (he does other marketing stuff, I believe). So I'm not surprised you didn't get a response... He may respond, eventually.

    BUT - they have been good about getting payments to affiliates. It takes forever and a day - but they've always padi about when they said they would.

    I know they pay quarterly Matt - see the above about my quarterly payment going from $8 to $4k. And I don't know if your idea of part-time includes month-long waits, but that, in my humble opinion, sucks.

    I've been with VIP for 3 years. Until this last, they have paid me what was owed. However, this time, that is not the case.

    So! Again: "Anyone else not been paid, or not been paid right?"

    Sorry - I guess I wont try to help you next time.

    I'm not making excuses for anything they do. They went from being a pretty program to crap. BUT - I've yet to have a payment issue with them. And unless you are a special case, I don't think they've started to send out 1Q08 payments yet.

    My VIPprofits commissions are much larger than yours and I have had no problems. You should continue to contact them until you receive a response or phone them.

    Intensity2 - You were downright rude to Matt.
    He was only trying to help you.

    Not being paid is one thing, being rude & spiking a sarcastic remark to a member trying to help you is just not on.

    If this is any indication of how you address people, I'd look to yourself for answers to why you've not received an email response.

    Blake hasn't answered my email in months. I didn't get paid last quarter - said I would next quarter (that was FEB). I still have every reason to believe I will get paid, but it's certainly not as easy as it used to be (been an affiliate since 2002).

    Damn, I miss the days of Simon and/or Mario. When they actually tried, VIP was the best.

    @Silverfish

    I got paid a couple of days ago via Moneybookers. Keep emailing him, he will eventually answer. If that doesn't work after a couple of days, then phone VIP customer service and ask to speak with Blake about the affiliate program and you may get lucky. He is spread pretty thin so be patient. It worked for me and my comms were five figures. (not bad for a site that hasn't allowed new sign ups for 15 months!) Just imagine how things could of been! Mario was great, but my only dealings with Simon have been him trying to get me to promote deadbeat sites like betempire and racebook.

    Thanks Potsie, I've sent a few emails already, but I'll keep trying.

    Having to ask is sad. Getting no response is even sadder.

    I totally agree with you, BUT let's face it...they could have told us to get bent a year ago. I view every cent from vipprofits as a wonderful bonus! Stick to it, you'll get paid.
