    Hi everyone,

    I've become Hostreview's affiliate program for around a month now, and according to their term of service, they'll pay whenever an account reaches 200 clicks ($0.25) each.
    I've got more than 800 but still havent heard from them, or get any replies after sending out at least 10 emails. Does anybody have the same problem as i do?

    Thanks

    Hmm...a quarter per click is a bit unrealistic to me. Is HostReview accounting handled by a reputable affiliate host?

    My highest paid affiliate program is DealTime which pays 10 cents per click. I am quite happy with it as I get several hundred clicks a day. DealTime affiliate program is hosted by Reporting.net.

    I have two years of experience with this whole affiliate thing. Most companies either fail to pay or discontinue the affiliate programs unexpectedly.

    Is HostReview a site about ratings of different hosting companies?

    Yes, Hostreview is a site that reviews other web hosting companies.

    what's weird about it is that they wont discontinue the service, and the clicks keep on coming, but i just get no answer from them. The only contact i can get is webmaster@hostreview.com

    What's the company that hosts HostReview's affiliate program? Maybe you can complain about HostReview problems to the hosting company.

    Hi, I don't think you can do anything about it because HostReview.com hosts its own affiliate program. I think that's a risk you have to take when signing up with this kind of affiliate program.

    I would go with LinkShare or Reporting.net if you are seeking affiliate programs.

    Sorry I couldn't help. If HostReview.com doesn't answer your questions, there's little you can do about it.

    What is unrealistic about it? HostIndex offered us a quarter a click too but we turned them down...

    HostReview is a good site from my experience with them, and they have always answered my emails quickly in the past. I have never used their affiliate program so I wouldn't know what to say about it, but there could just be a misconcpetion there. I'd just keep trying to contact them rather than give up- even if you haven't been successful at getting a reply so far.
