Ipage Affiliate Program Is A Scam. Don’t Fall For It.

Unauthorized Copy Of This Post Is Highly Prohibited

I registered a domain and paid for hosting at Ipage when I found out about their ‘free’ domain and ‘very cheap’ hosting packages. Be guided that the domain name is only free for one year. You will pay the full cost at renewal. The cheap hosting prices are also only meant for promotional purposes; you will pay full costs when renewal is due.
The domain name registration is being advertised as free, but I paid full costs when my renewal was due. My hosting fees also skyrocketed from $24 to $150 upon renewal!
So be informed that the cheap prices and free domains are only used lure prospects.
Now to the subject matter about iPage affiliate program:

iPage doesn’t pay, end of story! I really wanted to promote the iPage affiliate program due to the huge commission, but just like the hosting prices, it is created to lure you.

I was fortunate not to waste my time to promote it since I was skeptical about it in the first place. It wasn’t realistic for them to pay such huge commissions when the starter hosting charges were way lower than the commission earnings. I was proved right when iPage refused to pay a blogger friend of mine who had spent over a year promoting the ipage affiliate program.  This was his response to me, after I asked him about payment proofs:

Before that, I did my research by reading reviews about the iPage affiliate program and there was not a single positive remark!

When you request for withdrawal, iPage would tell you that your clicks were not genuine, and annoyingly refuse to pay you.

Below are some remarks I gathered about the iPage affiliate program:

“They owned me about 4,000 dollars and didn’t pay” -Chris-Vincent Agyapong – Ghanacelebrities.com

“iPage Affiliate has scammed me around $2000, I invested lots of my time (really lots) and effort to promote their service. and my hard work converted to sale. I made 18 sales in last two months, But surprisingly, iPage guys don’t send several thousands of my commission!
They are trying to pay me $25 account credit for each sale which cannot be cashed at any instance. They haven’t’ paid me any of the sales.do not work with them at all, as they will scam you too.” – Sadek

“I have the same experience, i promoted ipage two years ago.
I made about 2000$ commission in ipage from their affiliate progaram,
But they do not pay me a penny , even now i can see the sales in my account” – Anonymous

“It’s really sad how this companies try to have a win/win while promoters only have a loss.
Good luck with your next provider!” – Diego Baguero

“They scammed me around $2000 which is a lot of money.
I used to spend around 2 to 3 hours to promote iPage in my 25+ sites (With a total 1/2 million page-views per month)
Now I am planning to start a campaign wtih the name “WTF iPage” and possibly spent $300+ on this.

I clearly told iPage affiliate support that if I can brought 10 customers (Per month) to you then I can also get away 100 customers(Per month) from you.
I have given them an ultimatum of 7th July, after that I will start my WTF iPage campaign.” – Sadek

“As an experienced review website owner, I’ve reviewed many different web hosts, and I won’t promote any web hosts owned by EIG.
You can use the word “EIG Affiliate Scam” to search on the Google, you’ll find they won’t pay money to their affiliates.
Even you’ve received the affiliate commission, I believe that’s only a very very very small part of your total sales.
Sincerely,” – Tuan

“Frankly guys I have no intention of making false statements. I’m telling only so that no one else should invest their valuable time and money on iPage Affiliate.

I have good network of web designing freelancers. So when I wanted to do some affiliate promotions I selected iPage as this would gimme more conversion chances. I have forwarded the offers and links to everyone in my network and also promote in search engines. After 2 months the no of clicks i got is around 2000 clicks but 0 commission. This I felt absurd. I dont know how to get feedback from others but those in my network complained that the links are not working. You’ll get hell lot of silly errors at the last step after you press check out. And you’ll be unable to complete the transaction. Finally some completed the transaction taking help of customer care through live chat. But these purchases/ transactions were not counted for commissions.

Not just the above there are hell lot of gimmicks you’ll find with iPage affiliate Programs.

At the same time other links and affiliate programs of other vendors are yielding results which were setup in the same process.

I have cross checked every aspect before this post.” – Shyaman

“very bad experience with ipage..
worked hard to promote and got sales but no commissions ever…” Anonymous

  1. Hi Karisma, I’m quite surprised about this as I’ve been paid by iPage. The payment for $105 was sent straight to my Paypal account and I earned this commission from just 1 sale. I’m sorry to hear about your experiences though.

  2. iPage rip me off $2000 of commission for my hard work in 3 months.

    iPage frequently scam their affiliates ! A LOT OF TIMES. AGAIN AND AGAIN. A Lot Of Tricks !

    If you ever read the iPage affiliate program section in their website, they basically saying that they will pay you $105 for each sale of $35.88 that you made for them (via referral). They are saying you can earn $105 for each sale of $35.88 if you affiliate with them directly in their system.

    So, to work with iPage affiliate program, I had to build a good website, hire people to write articles, buying seo serives to boost the site’s rank. I personally support every customer and referral, every single one of them to ensure their happiness with iPage. And yes, the first month they paid me $735. And I was so excited by the first payment from them that I decided to invest further into the business, I invested in videos, facebook pages, facebook ads, google ads, bing ads to promote them.

    Sales was on fire.

    Guess what ? They didn’t pay me for my second month performance, also my third, my fourth. I’m in my fifth month in doing affiliate with them. I tried to contact them via helpchat support, the helpchat supporters always tell me that affiliate issue is outside of their powers and they had reported the issue to a higher authorized department/manager to look into the problem and will response me via email within 24 – 48 hours.

    It has been 3 months since the first message like that and they still fail to resolve the problem for me up to this point (3 months later). The problems with affiliate issues just built up. The amout of missing commission that they owe me also built up. I contact them via helpchat support and via email (to both affiliates@ipage-inc.com and support@ipage-inc.com) twice a week within 3 months to remind them but they just keep telling me to wait, someone is looking into it…

    FREAKING 3 MONTHS ! not just days or weeks. 3 MONTHS !

    I have all my customers email them to confirm about their association with me but I’m still not paid for referring them.

    Even now I still get the SAME message that someone is working on it every time I contact them via helpchat. However when the payment cycle comes, they just don’t pay me and tell me to wait more..

    IPAGE IS CLEARLY A SCAM. Please affiliates don’t fall for it. They will pay you when you first affiliate with them, trying to bump you up and falsely motivate you. Then, in next upcoming months, when you doing really good, they will scam all your hard work just to get their money back. It’s a trick I have seen a lot.

    So my advice for you is that don’t do affiliate business directly with them, do it via Cj.com for example (even in there, they can still scam you, but the risk is smaller) and don’t stick with only one account. THE BEST ADVICE IS NEVER EVER DO BUSINESS WITH THEM !

    THEY SCAM BOTH THEIR CUSTOMERS AND THEIR AFFILIATES ALOT OF TIMES ! JUST SERACH IN THE INTERNET AND READ,you will see ! THANKS
