Can you trust affiliates?
Do they track links fairly

 6:26 pm on Jun 10, 2008 (gmt 0)

does everyone think that affiliates (especially smaller specific companies) fairly show results?
Is there any governing rules or ways to check?
Do you always get the payment for refering a customer everytime?

better ask if you can trust merchants.

yes, but check out the merchant before you refer traffic to them.

Some general affiliates I trust, well two to be exact. Some I don't trust, well that's the two others I have used in my career.

As far as single company affilate schemes, two I trust implicitly, one other I trust but the staff are so lazy that I gave up with them.

Any good affiliate program is in it for the longhaul. Why screw affiliates and give yourself a bad name and lose all of your affiliates? it makes no business sense, but I am sure there probably are some out there that can't think long term.

Problems that I have found seem to be down to poor software rather than anything else.

I have never had any problems with amazon apart from the fact that most people these days just type in the url for themselves.

Thanks for the answers.
I had a ringtone affiliate but I didn't think they gave me credit for the links as the link from my site went to a further 2 or 3 sites and they seemed to discount my initial link.
They also had a very short time on the link that expired and left me with no payment even though people were paying for ringtones direct to their mobiles.
I agree that the big companies work but there are so many little companies who seem to missuse the fairplay rules and make reasons to discount your initial link.
