I had dabbled with almost every ads program in beta. They usually have some glitches etc. For example, WB first gave us good payments, then, they weed out Asians. Then, the same thing happen to PPP as well. Beta simply means we are part of the guinea pigs gang. They can change the rules anytime and we have very little say in it.
But I notice something disturbing about how Adverlets handle their publishers. Take for example, this blog iZone from Singapore which was ranting about not receiving his cheque after submitting support tickets. He got smacked on the face by Advertlets that his cheque was delayed because Advertlets is investigating on click frauds. WTF? If I am the blogger, I will get very mad because that comment from Advertlets support posted on a blog will make everyone thinks that he is indeed cheating.
Okay. However, please note that your cashout amount is most likely going to be audited. There are a few â€œirregular clicksâ€. Please get in touch with us if there is anything you would like to clarify.
Then, another blogger Darren today posted about the same thing happening to him. When payment is due, they have to delay it due to click frauds.
Although as publishers we cannot say much and usually ‘Just Follow Law’, I think there is a better way to tell us than to post it on a blog? Moreover, are click errors (let’s make it sound nicer, shall we?) are normally audited as and when they appear like what WB is doing to us now. We see red figures which indicated they aren’t the final figure and we see black when the figure is confirmed. Certainly, it mustn’t be allowed to pile up till publishers decide to demand payments? By then, wouldn’t that be months of click errors to deal with?
So, the sad thing is yes, we publishers/bloggers are always expected to ‘Just Follow Law’. You know
1) submit a support ticket, wait for one month,
2) if no reply, write a complaint letter,
3) if no respond, make a blog post
4) and if not enough action, ask some influential blogger and blow it loud loud. LOL
5) and finally…. you decide
**Just Follow Law is a very good movie from Singapore about the frustrations of living in a world govern by laws that impede development. If you have not watch it, you should. Get the original licenced DVD from a shop near you. *ahem*
Though I am not a publisher of Advertlets, I know the feeling of being shortchanged many times by new ads companies. I guess you can relate to this frustrations as well.
