    Default Warning - Lottoelite Behind 3 Months (2 Issues resolved)

    Title says it all. I have not been paid in 3 months and I can't seem to get a response from my aff manager on Skype about when I can expect to get caught up.

    I don't mind so much the delay, a lot of programs go through it at some point. But I do expect good communication regarding the delay. And when that doesn't happen, then that does raise red flags for me.

    They've always been great in the past regarding payments. So I'm going to give it the rest of the week here before I take them down and maybe someone will respond and give me some concrete info. But if I'm not paid by the end of the week or I don't have a solid eta on when I will be paid, I will be looking to replace them.

    So if there are any other lottery programs who want to do business, send me a pm and I will research your program when I find the time. I'm not interested in mylotto or lotterymaster. Must offer major lotteries from all over the world and have a good reputation with players...

    Hello.

    I have the same problem with lottoelite. About five months waiting for payments. Every month they ask me to check my account details are up-to-date to send the payment "on next month".

    I also will wait a couple of days to move wintrillions, trillonario, ledonford, lottokings and all related brands to the black list.

    Same problem here, no payment for September, October and November period yet, middle 5-digit amount due. At first, they answered my emails saying that payment would be processed "later this week", and now no communication at all.

    What's more is the fact that according to my backend, the last transaction (sale) registered for this month is from December 12th, and this is highly unusual (no sales during 8 days, while I have consistently had 60-80 sales per month for years!)

    In May 2014, I had a major issue with them when my commissions dropped to under 40% of what had they had been, after years of being consistently rising, and later never reached the previous level.
    I then checked my transactions history, comparing from 2011 forward, and saw that all my "big spenders" who had made consistent deposits/resales had seemingly disappeared in May 2014.

    That was precisely at the same time when my AM left the company. Of course they denied all wrongdoings. I will leave it to you to draw conclusions.
    Their conversion rate is also down to a third of what it used to be (although that could be because of a more competitive market).

    Number of renewals from Jan 2013 until April 2014 - average 160 per month
    Number of renewals in May and after - average 65 per month

    I do have a contact who is pretty much at the top of their affiliate program. I have been in touch with him two days ago and he promised me to take care of the problem. Please PM me if you need his contact email.

    A quick follow up. Lottoelite paid me my outstanding balance today. Part of the problem was they don't use paypal anymore, so I had to setup a payoneer account and get paid there.

    I was asked to create an invoice and they would pay me to my bank account (used to be Skrill), but haven't received payment yet.

    Interesting fact: Wintrillions is now controlled by Legacy Eight, Curacao, and operates on a Curacao gambling license. If I am not mistaken, they used to have a Cypriot license ...

    I'm happy to hear that you got paid Congratulations!

    You are not alone. There seem to be other affiliates who are having very similar problems too, unfortunately

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Santiago Perez and I am the current Affiliate Manager for LottoElite.com

    I just wanted to let those that are having issues with their payments know that I'm currently working almost exclusively on solving this issue, so you can reach out to the email in my profile (can't post email adress yet since this account is new, but it is santiago@) and I'll be sure to follow up on your payment.

    We are extremely sorry for the delay and the issues it may have caused but I assure you that we are working hard to catch up with the remaining late payments so we can start focusing all our efforts in working with our affiliates to continue growing together.

    Thank you for your time and please reach out to me if you have any questions or need assistance with our Affiliate Program.

    Sorry I have to bump this thread, but payments are overdue again. Revs since January 2018 unpaid.

    Hi,

    First of all, thank you Rick for the welcome and for editing the title of the thread to reflect how many of the issues presented here had been solved. I really appreciate it!

    Unfortunately as Catfish stated, we are again experiencing delays on some of our commission payments. But, I can also guarantee affiliates here that all late commissions will be processed and that I'm personally focusing again on this issue.

    If you are also experiencing payment delays from our affiliate program, please don't hesitate to reach out to my email adress found on my profile and I'll do my best to follow up with you and our financial team to ensure this issue gets resolved as soon as possible.

    Thank you again to the team here for giving me this space to reach out to these affiliates, and thank you again to all our affiliates for being patient as we work to permanently solve these issues.

    Received an email from the accounting team, saying they will "have and update on the payment issue" next week. They have promised me payment weeks after week (for next week...) since 2 months now. Absolutely ridiculous. Sorry Santiago.

    Hi,

    I just wanted to let everyone know that we have finally caught up with late payments and we should be able to keep our regular payment schedule from now on.

    I personally apologize to those affiliates that experienced delays and for the inconveniences this may have caused.

    If anyone still has any payment related issues, or issues of another kind. Feel free to reach out to me and I will personally follow up on it.

    Thank you again to gpwa for giving us this space to follow up on affiliate complaints, and to our affiliates for their patience.

    I am waiting now over a year for my affiliate commission, over 350 usd, with 3 invoices all submitted last year.

    I think they have gone ROGUE.

    I even find it absurd that a guy called James Dominique even tells me to promote more their products, while I am waiting for 3 commission payments!.

    I think their whole business is a SCAM because if someone does win the lottery, they hold the original receipts. What can someone say with a photocopy, they won?! They are in some offshore island where no one can get to them.

    BOGUS

    Stay away.

    James Dominique has just taken joined Lottoelite as head of the affiliate department. It seems that there was a major change just recently. I am waiting for more information on the extent of siad change. Having worked with them since 2012, I can definitely confirm that in the past, there was a lot of shady stuff going on after 2014. The recent change may be a change for the better. I suggest that you monitor the situation.

    And by the way, the "ticket" issue you were talking about is not an issue, that is just the way this business is run. Some lottery sites always buy tickets, some use a combination of insurance and ticket buying, depending on how high the jackpot is. In any case, that side of the business has nothing to do with the affiliate marketing part. Although, if you do not trust the product and/or business model in the first place, you should not be affiliating for the product. But in that case, a point could be made that nobody should ever run an affiliate business in the online gambling industry, period.
