My instant payments from the Shoemoney.net affiliate program suddenly stopped a couple months ago, so a couple of weeks ago I reached out to them via email for support. To be fair, it had been awhile since I checked my account, and at the time I sent the support email (3-4 weeks ago), I could still see the hundreds of referrals in my account. It seemed there were a number of “conversions” that should have resulted in matching 100% payments to my Paypal account, but had not been sent.
Got a reply in a few days. Didn’t really get it sorted, though.
Admittedly, I laid back on the matter for a bit.
However – today when I logged in at Shoemoney.net (thinking I should finally follow-up on the aforementioned matter), it appears the entire referral mechanism and affiliate program has been 86’ed from the member area. If I’m not mistaken, the “Help” section and training area have been revised to adapt for the absence of the referral program as well. No list of referrals, no list of commissions, no mention of my affiliate rate – that cool “100%” message from my dashboard just isn’t rocking anymore. The whole thing actually seems boring now. 🙂
If you’re one of the thousands of folks that have signed up for the Shoemoney.net blog training – and know more than I do about this whole affiliate-used-to-be-program thing – then pop your comments in below. I usually pride myself on keeping up with the Internet Marketing world where I “work” online, but I was genuinely surprised today. I really thought I just looked at that downline a week or so ago!
As of this posting, I haven’t found any official announcements on the apparent changes.
