    Default Optionsclick - STAY OUT OF THEM

    Just got this email, and I must say - complete **** - stay out of them guys:
    NOTIFICATION - STOP TRAFFIC
    Dear Subscriber
    The purpose of this message is to inform you that due to low performance we kindly ask you to pause ALL traffic as soon as possible and no later than June 1’st 2016.

    Your company has provided us with good service in the past, however, we have decided to pause all your campaigns until we see an uplift in bottom line and profitability. We will of course be happy to resume the activity once that happens.
    Starting June 1st we won’t be accepting any traffic or ads from your side at this moment and no commission will be associated.

    Any FTD’s registered before June 1st are valid for late conversations for up to 30 days unless explicitly stated otherwise.

    Please be sure to send all outstanding invoices by June 10th 2016 so we can wire you your due commissions.

    If you have any questions you can reach me at
    Skype: *
    or
    Michael at Skype: *

    We would like to thank you for our long-standing collaboration. We hope to keep on working with you in the future once results are better.
    Regards,
    The Options-Partners team

    Yea,
    I got burned prolly, but not so huge damage, the odd thing is that 11 days ago we spoke with my aff. manager how they had issues with their sales....and today I got this, the guy on skype said - "The owners took the decision TODAY", anyway this is not the first program to serve **** to affiliates I can name a few....:
    - 24fx - supposed to be owned by one of the big players in binary - 24option - the guys just closed their aff program, after I sent them 50 leads in a month...no reasons given. As a side note 24option is a bit odd as well, I noticed a pattern end of each month a receive one cpa just to keep my mouth shut when I complain they sux at conversions(very clear sign of something fishy, though I can not proove it - good part is I do not go heavy on promoting them)
    - 6partners.com - with 2 brands 24bulls and 6option - just went MIA without notice...again all leads gone
    - Optiontime... - first "sold" to markets.com, then in a month just closed completely, leads and all gone
    - markets.com - biggest fraud ever - tested with 3 accounts - register->deposit to check if they mark .... 0 CPA for me, explanation was - the traders are under different affiliate - LOL, interesting how this happened when the guys registered directly via my aff. link and are relatives and friends. As of the moment markets.com has no sales - like 0 so do not expect conversions there, also the support is terrible, not to mention the ridiculous Mexos aff. platform which I hate in the guts ))

    Since I happen to deal with tons of brokers daily I should start a thread for all the **** I receive daily
    P.S.
    Do not get me wrong Forex/Binary is good business and there are good and honest brokers there, but as any other heavy niche, it is full of scams as well
    I hope that I helped a bit

    Small update, after my initial frustration I checked again and in comes to no surprise what happened...
    Optionsclick is owned by Lead Capital Markets same company that used to run xxStock.com which also closed their aff. program after less than an year and started all over at xxTrade.com, of course no compensation was give to affiliates and all leads were burned, not to mention the huge mess they had in the program while active - cutting commissions on rev share with lame excuses, paying one time CPA instead rev share as agreed first.... can name few more, their head of affiliates turned up drunk at a meeting I had with them last year in Amsterdam...
    So in short guys Stay out of any brand operated by the company Lead Capital Markets - those guys have closed 2 of their affiliate programs in less than an year and scammed tons of people, other brands under same company are:
    xxtrade.com
    xxforexyard.com
    xxexcellenceoption.com
    xxprestigeoption.com
    xxoptionsclick.com
    STAY OUT of them, this is my honest advice and I close the case on my side.

    Thanks for posting that as it may help some affiliate identify the group in the end.

    I obfuscated the links, no reason to give the operators a free link.

    I'm failing to see the "affiliate shave" here

    You are working on CPA - they will pay out all CPAs - but do not want any further traffic from you (and others) on those terms.
    What's the rogue behaviour, scam or shaving going on here?

    Companies are entitled to switch and change marketing techniques and channels as and when they see fit - and long as they meet obligations.
    They've clearly indicated that they are not seeing bottom line profits using current methods.

    What is the problem here - you cannot have expected to send CPAs forever?

    The problem is that I have sent them 300 leads past 3 months, and they will pay FTD-CPA only till end of the month - so later conversions are gone for me. This is second brand by same owner that does the same, difference is with stock -com I was on rev share so there was worst. Saw the shave now?

    Well,

    If the traffic was worth much, and you were on revshare, then the future profits "would" have been forthcoming.

    Why should anyone pay $50 for signups worth $10, or $100 for signups worth $50, or $250 for those worth $100 etc etc etc...

    I got information from my Affiliate manager that all previous payment will be done from their side. Hope they really will process all payment for last month.
