If you are new to affiliate marketing the company is there to help you out and get you started. You can ask any questions and they will be there to help you. This is a great company to work for and there are so many affiliate opportunities posted on this site.

I have worked with this affiliate network for over a year. The companies that you promote are terrible companies and cheat you out of your conversions. You promote their sites, they receive their email address, and they refuse to give you credit for your conversions. I wouldn’t recommend anyone to use this company. I don’t find their site ethical and some of the offers you are given to promote are for scam sites.
