    No response from Stars whatsoever, exactly the kind of attitude im talking about here...

    My advice for affiliates - stay away from PokerStars

    Good advice.

    I know many have already heard it from me but I never pass a chance to tell of mistreatment in hopes of saving others.

    I signed with them very early on. they didn't even have the aff part set up where we could see what was going on. ... so we had to email them to ask of our stats.

    not being totally new, I confirmed links with aff manager and then didn't bother them again for 2 or 3 months. (takes that long for me to build up anything worth noting in poker).

    they replied they'd never heard of me despite my having confirmed links, and able to tell them the aff manager's name. I didn't still have any of my earlier emails with them (my mistake) but it wouldn't have been that hard for them to at least make a slight effort to see if I was legit and had earnings coming.

    instead they showed me as much concern and interest as you'd be to fill up a wrecked car and then run it thru the car wash.

    and yes, I thought they were above many of their peers but they turned out to be absolutely worthless sponsors with no care towards their affs whatsoever.

    I know some do good with them but they lost me and anybody else i can warn away all because they were to arrogant to be bothered to at least check my claims before dismissing me.

    Ah ok. I see what you mean...I was confused at first.

    You are referring to the players wjo downloaded and signed up during the deal period, but didn't meet the CPA qualification criteria until after the deal expired.

    I'm sure that has to be a misunderstanding on Pokerstars part. I am sure they will pay the CPA money on those players as they were acquired during the deal period. Have you chatted to Carly?

    Yeah thats the best bit - i am not even talking about an agreed CPA for those players that did not meet the criteria during the deal. PokerStars refused to pay the lowest possible rate for those (laughable $75) - instead i was told under their T&C i will not be paid at all.

    I have not chatted with anyone else then Andreas, who was dealing with me after Ellen has left. They did not even bother telling me who made the decision and why - i was told by Andreas he got orders and this is how it looks like (ie. there is nothing i can do about it)

    An attitude worth the best affiliate programm of the year award.

    Default my own mistake

    Well i tell you my own mistake..

    i sat at no1 for a very competetive keyword .. sending pokerstars few hundred new players a month.. I was very new to the industry few yrs back..

    Now wether or not it was a competitor which i pressume it was didnt like the fact my crappy 1 page sales letter sat at the top.. I got google hacked..

    i didnt have a clue what to make of it. how it happened.. so i emailed pokerstars for help.. they basically told me to get lost and stop bothering them..

    2 weeks later 4 websites connected to pokerstars were at the top of my results and eventually over time pushed me out the first page..

    and thats my experience with pokerstars.. really happy to help aslong as they can get somthing out of it..



    --- my mistake i admit it.. should never tell anyone anytihng !
