Advertlets has not pay since last year?

I don’t subscribed to many local make money blogs feeds because most of them are just basically copy and paste jobs. But here is one that works really hard. Shamoneymaker is a Singaporean and he puts a lot of dedication into his writings, analysing and dissecting information and produce original posts.

According to Sha :

Advertlets is still a good option and company, both are in fact, but I’ve issues with my current choice, and I just can’t keep faith to it anymore.

So far my major concerns are:

I’ve not been paid since last year, I can’t be bothered to keep on reminding them. Their payment system needs an overhaul

Well, what about other Advertlets publishers? Have you been getting your payments?

Lately, local ads and advertorials are quite slow due to companies cutting down on their advertising budget. Everyone is embracing for a rough ride ahead. But not getting paid by Advertlets? Well, it is an old issue that just crops up again.

    I have to go anonymous here as I don’t want to get victimised for complaining.

    I have pending payout requests since the middle last year and although a few of my other payouts show its status as processing although they’ve been having that status in excess of 6 months. The combined amount owed to me is quite significant.

    it took me almost half a year to receive payment from them.. not a big amount, only Rm 100…

    hoho not “fresh” news already, they had been delaying the payment since 2007…. until today still like that.

    I stuck to Nuffnang after the Advertlets’ domain blunder few years ago.

    hehehe. they only pay those big shot blogger. Those small one they do as they want. A few of my friends put advertlets on their unused blog. N they even said that they click the ads themselves. hahaha. I guess they just like the idea of toying with advertlets.

    I haven’t been paid since a donkey’s year ago (either December 2007 or Jan 2008). The status said the cheque has sent but I haven’t even received anything from Advertlets.

    Previously I emailed Josh himself several times to talk him into this issue and he tried complicating the situation by asking me questions like a Police.

    I knew he was going to do that. I knew he would eventually ask me to provide him with a copy of my IC (where got ppl simply ask for IC one??) and tell me I was involved in click frauds, etc etc, a.k.a. the typical “techniques” he adopted to not pay back the hard earn money of customers-turned-victims like me. You may want too Google this; I’m sure you can find a lot of the same issue I’m facing on net.

    Anyway back to my encounter… I was sick and tired of Josh’s attitude and decided to send a message to sincerely advice him not to do that because “the cost of retaining existing customers can be up to seven times cheaper than attracting new ones”, among other things.

    Then out of a sudden, the amount I cashed out (RM117.5) was finally approved and “sent” although by “sent”, I think it is more of a theoretical than practical thing.


    Once Josh “forgot” to renew his domain, causing advertlets to be redirected to a third party site. A lot of people took the codes off their blogs and so did I. Josh then gave me a call encouraging me to put the codes back on and introduced to me their dunno what exclusive titan programme (totally a crisis management act!). He said I could email him for more info.

    So I emailed him to ask about the programme. My email was never replied.

    That was when I felt I was and still am OVER advertlets (but not my hard earn money).

    And it seems that the money also says sayonara with me following my decision to stop advertlets ads and send Josh some serious (but sincere) comments.

    Taukey, tell your friends not to click on own ads unless they have some promising blackhat technology or something. Doing that will only give advertlets a.k.a Josh a solid reason to not pay them. Im sure he can track IP’s.

    I have cash out my earning since last year nov, let see how long should I take

    Kenneth Lee, the reason they are clicking the ads themselves cause they know Adverlets are not going to pay them.

    Furthermore, Nuffnang pays them everymonth. So its all done for the good faith of having fun.

    I dumped Advertlets since Dec 07. Getting Advertlets’ payment is ALMOST impossible. Read my posts at to find out more. :P

    Seems like you a right, but what about situation around LR ?
    What are you think? Not the same situation?

    The bloggers who have not been paid by Advertlets should sue the company. Teach them a lesson for not taking people for a ride.
