We got an interesting email on June 10th, about a major company allegedly fucking over hundreds if not thousands of their affiliates. We tried to research further into the subject before posting it but it isn’t always easy to confirm this type of information so we held off on the post ar that time. The letter we received is below.
However that being said, it was confirmed that Penthouse let go their “Digital Business Manager” yesterday (the go to person for affiliates). While this doesn’t actually kill the program, it does, in fact, leave it as a ghost ship.
We reached out to Penthouse two different times to confirm the information for our story but didn’t have any luck getting a response. The former Penthouse affiliate manager didn’t comment as to why she left, only posting on Facebook that she is no longer with them and is seeing new opportunities at this time.
Now, this could simply mean that they are going to outsource their entire affiliate program so they didn’t need anyone in-house but as I said before, we couldn’t reach anyone at Penthouse for a comment, despite our best efforts. I can honestly see them doing something like this after like 18 months or longer of trying to rebuild their program without any luck.
Hey Mike, not sure if you have heard about this yet but there is a major company that has been scamming their affiliates for the last year.
When Penthouse was bought out, they were able to import the affiliates into NATs but their new system wasn’t compatible with their free hosted galleries.
Shit happens man, get it. But when affiliates contacted them to ask about it, they fucking lied and said the old galleries were working fine, which they are only they aren’t tracking your traffic. So any traffic any affiliate sends to the old galleries they won’t get credit for the sales.
All Penthouse had to do was be honest and say hey man, since we changed owners, our new system isn’t compatible so you have to update your gallery links. But instead they decide to lie and now more than a year later those links still aren’t being tracked and they are still lying about it.
I don’t get why more people aren’t fucking talking about this.
I first brought up the issue with Penthouse on January 21, 2016. It’s June of 2017 and they are still having the same issues and still fucking lying about it. Why is nobody outing them?
