    Default Etoro Partners ROGUE after Twitter IPO

    Dear community,

    I am writing out to you guys in the hope my story get's heard and the big brand eToro cannot get away with this. For 3 month's I have been sending good quality traffic to eToro Partners, I had 20 regs first month and 4 traders, then in october I had 30 regs or so and 4 new traders, all before Twitter ipo. So with a 8 traders on 30 percent revshare core, I was making around $5 to $10 a day everyday untill Twitter ipo. This day I had the best commission of my life: $22.95. From the reports it showed a new trader who deposited $660, must be a €500 deposit, who went all in on twitter? Now to calculate my commission from him is easy: around 10 percent fee for etoro so $66, 30 percentrevshare $22.95 makes good sense to me. Now I guess you all have heard of ''etoro's display error'' that made affiliates not see any commissions from twitter ipo to end of the month. What I think is strange is that in total that month there was deposited over $1400 via my links, and all I got after Twitter ipo was MAX $2 a day, instead of my regular earnings. This didn't seem right as I was bringing in new FTD's every 2-3 days or so, but my earnings went lower and lower. Also my earnings with plus500, Markets.com and other affiliates where SORING during twitter ipo and the days after, so I really questioned the chance for etoro to go rogue on twitter ipo. I asked many hard questions on the etoropartners facebook group, so hard questions the AM's came up with different stories every time, first it was a new display feature that was coming, later it was a technical issue. Ok, I may have been rude on the Facebook channel, I was fedup, trashed all etoro content for the time being....... 2 Days later I calm down thinking: O, a big company like eToro doesnt scrape, Dennis, you where just over frustrated in the loss of maybe $100 in commissions due to display errors, maybe they will appear all in one day added to the backend. So, I put all etoro content back up on my website, and I decide to give them one more go with the xmas $50 no deposit banner, this month.


    Now something truly unique in affiliate lands happens.......

    Normally I see 300+ impressions a day in etoros greenbarred backend if I give them header exposure. Hence I get 90 unique visitors a day with around 3 pageviews per visitor, I figured out already a few days after joining etoro that their impressions counts visitors x pageviews.....

    Day #1 36 impressions.... Google analytics: 108 unique visitors that day (and the banner is on homepage header) revenue $ 0.30

    Day #2 27 impressions.....no clicks/regs. revenue $0.50

    From day 3........... Nothing de Nothing.... my traffic had just stopped. (According to etoro's backend)

    So because of me asking to many questions they deleted me from the facebook group AND my traffic is scraped to maximum extent.

    Luckily I have a theme where it counts hits to your connected brokers/casinos. Now the funny thing ofcourse comes..... I had 40 clicks to etoro, daily, just like normal, but etoro showed me 0. Also it looks like all of my 11 traders have stopped trading or instantly lost everything? It get's funnier.


    I contact my AM in a Piemontese laconic way, not really that angry, I'd rather say nagging, because I am really not that dumb that they think I am about the stats issue. Here is the email:

    Hi natachaco,

    Is my tracking working correctly? Etoro 468x60 in header and yesterday 90 unique visitors would result in atleast 90 impressions or more, I only see 36 impressions in dashboard, something must be not correct? As also normally I have 300 impressions when I put etoro in header (see previous stats). I was wondering if my recent dispute caused me to see lower than used to be numbers? please update me on this one,


    kind regards,


    Dennis


    PS All my websites run their own tracking software, so I can see exactly howmuch impressions,clicks I am giving wich brands, if the numbers don't match with the dashboard of the affiliate program, something must be wrong.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Hi,

    We count visitors only once, so there are no duplications on our side, and that’s why you will always see less on our dashboard.

    I am still waiting for you to verify your account in order to avoid from being blocked from payments.

    Regards,
    Natacha
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Now something funny happens...... after this email my dashboard at etoro goes wild, all the numbers are suddenly mixed up, and I see a TOTAL DIFFERENT landscape of impressions,clicks,earnings, almost if I am in someone else's dashboard!!!!!!!...... I send them a new email, because the scraping is getting to obvious....

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    hi,

    strange that you dont understand my question and that numbers are different now compared from before your email reply. My system also counts no dups lol.


    As I didnt meet the treshold yet because of your ''display'' errors previous month, i am waiting till I have reached treshold before filling in.


    kind regards,


    O, and also, your system counts per unique per pageview, I used to see MORE views on your dashboard than my system But I guess we are not all that expert in affiliate marketing,

    Dennis

    You can clearly see me being angry now because of the ''dislay'' **ehum** ''scraping'' errors, as I earned only $60 in whole october (NOT EVEN THE TRESHOLD) for over $1400 in deposits, 8 traders, LOLOL..... keep reading get's funny....
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Dear Dennis,

    First of all, you are being beyond disrespectful. I will not answer to any of your emails until you apologize for your inappropriate language.

    Second, if your acct is not verified in the next 24 hrs, your account will be deactivated until you can verify it.

    Third from now on, you are on 25% revenue share.

    Last but not least, If you have any other questions, you better address them with respect and good manners or your account will be deactivated permanently and your commissions paid as what’s outstanding – but you will first need to verify your acct. We are not interested in working with affiliates who are disrespectful and abusive like yourself. This is the last warning before we close your account.

    Regards,
    Natacha

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    So that's it folks...... HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH You get scraped by etoro, you bring it as a display error trying to be nice, when they cannot think of something anymore it is just: O you know what boy, let's get you decommissioned to 25 percent instead of the 30 you where on (Agreed for higher placement in top 5's), and you know what, one more word and we will kick you!

    I am laughing my balls of guys seriously don't work with etoro. I replied that they can send me the $95.76 I have built up with them in 4! months with 11 traders and $1640 deposits total.

    O yes one more thing. I said on the etorofacebookgroup that I wanted to sue them for this... They changed terms and conditions a day later. With all new terms that if you are rude on the facebook group for example, they can kick you from the affprogram all that kinds of things, I guess Dennis Graham Clarke is an example for how affiliates that ask questions get kicked or mouthshut.

    And yes, who of you think this is funny :

    Your commissions on etoro can only be withdrawn to your trader account. Thats like paying casino aff earnings in chips lol... Little Fordism here if I am correct...

    "
    Etoro Partners ROGUE after Twitter IPO"

    No surprise.
    Two years later and the same situation.
    Etoro was never in my focus ... until yesterday!
    An unscrupulous lady switched in August 2015 from a criminal program that was banned from GPWA to eToro in the function of Senior Affiliate Manager. The right woman for the job.

    Why?


    Etoro is still only a Fata Morgana. Behind eToro is RetailFX Ltd. in Cyprus and the whole business plan is a copy trader rip off to milk customers. In Germany the reputation of eToro is very bad ... two years ago ... today. Many complaints from people who tried to cashout, lousy exchange rates and other run run run away stories.
