Last week, I commented that I had been booted from the YouSendIt affiliate program just three weeks after being accepted.
Well, I’ve got a bit of an update on the issue. Here is a message from YouSendIt:
We would like to apologize for any inconvenience caused from the expiration of the affiliate program. Due a significant percentage of fraudulent leads, YouSendIt felt the best course of action was to temporarily withdraw this program. We are continuing to evaluate options and hope to have the program running again soon. Once this issue is resolved we plan on inviting back all legitimate affiliates.
The version of the YouSendIt affiliate program where I was bounced was on CJ. I see they also have an affiliate program on ShareASale.
Just applied and saw that they are on auto-approval. I’d imagine that’s why they got screwed up by fraudulent leads the first time around.
Manual approval of affiliates, folks. Manual approval!
