Hi community,

I'm writing this thread for my friend @gongyi who is running zhujiceping.com, one of the top 10 VPS marketing websites in China. He cannot explain this well in English. I'm here to help him.

He's been introducing products for providers LEB community to the Chinese marketing since 2014. He's done lots of sales for many awesome providers such as:

hostus.us ---- @AlexanderM

hostsolutions.ro ------@cociu

hostodo.com ------------ @Hassan

hostdare.com ------------ @hostdare

buyvm.net -------------@Francisco

rectified.net -------- @rectified

virmach.com ---------------- @VirMach

hostsailor.com--------------- @HostSailor

changeip.com--------------- @changeip

BandwagonHost --- Daniel.

budgetvm ,bandwagonhost , vultr ,digitalocean

on 18th, April, Cloudflexy(Rackhost) contacted him asking if he can promote products to Chinese market from LET. https://imgur.com/a/5LZ5q

It's already 2000+ sales for Cloudflexy. https://imgur.com/a/Ij4l8

He's been asking Cloudflexy to pay his earning. The provider has been putting his request on hold.

He's been trying to communicate with provider and they just keep delaying the payment. https://imgur.com/a/KKzli

In three months, only less than 1/3 of the earning is paid.

It's really appreciated if anyone can provide any advice for my friend.

Cheers,

Frank

    I know the struggle. I only pay out PayPal and my stripe isn't even connected to PayPal, and I swear affiliate payout requests only occur right after bills are paid, and when people swear off of using PayPal for a few weeks.

    The struggle is real, it's always a perfect storm. I've got a couple of payouts sitting right now, waiting for the account to fill back up during what seems to be a slow month.

    Hopefully they're good for it and just like me, not always able to have enough money in the one place that matters for that one thing at the worst time.

    Maybe he can join my affiliate program too and help me out so we all get some cash :P

    I personally question if they're even a legit company at all. Allowing desktop Windows, charging dirt cheap pricing (after the coupons are applied), and lately changing the affiliate terms suddenly for my friend's account, probably applies to everyone:

    My guess is that they're just not even making money. Dirt cheap prices that make almost no profit and then refunded orders. Apparently you still earn commissions on canceled orders so they're probably avoiding payments right now. You got a lot of those in that list of affs.

    Oh and by the way, the above quote for max payout is $55 right? Well check this out:

    According to their aff page, it shows $99 is the minimum payout but in the ticket, it read $55 is max.

    You might get the payment if you wait, you might not, who knows. Up to 50% off coupons and 30% commissions doesn't equal they make money off of the services to pay the 6.5k you made so far.

    i had got some money from some providers as the same 30% commissions in the past.

    T here's still confusion about the cloudflexy.

    The thing is that they're running on tiny profits, so where the heck they going to get the money to pay you? Thin air? Which providers gave you 30% and how much did they charge the customers for the services?

    The aff percentage is not that a big issue. The problem is if a provider actually pays. It's seen many providers in LEB appear and disappear after a few months which is a usual thing.

    Well hardware isn't exactly cheap, is it? Say the 512MB OVZ plan, add the 35% off coupon, makes it $7.15/year. Take commissions out, and they're left with $5/year to cover hosting costs. That's not a lot to pay for hardware and stuff you know?

    You missed the part where the host is selling a 512MB OVZ for < $5/year or less.

    If you do that, with a V4, you too will be moobs deep in tickets and going to the store to buy yourself a rope.

    No need, you can save a buck and re-use a network cable:

  • Sounds like the provider bit off more than he can chew. Didnt do enough calculations to ensure he had cash to pay people. If you note the rounded, odd payments to the aff suggests he was waiting for renewals to pay out.

    can i get the money ?

  • gongyi said: can i get the money ?

    I suggest you ask the provider for a payment plan, they may not have the money right now to spare, no point in demanding it, they will just shut you out.

    Maybe suggest they pay you over 3 months.

    Push mxroute and if I can't pay you quickly, I'll tell you why and I'll make sure you get every dime. Everyone hits less preferred situations, no one likes it, but you should only be hyping a product from someone you know values their word and will make sure it's always made right.

    Yeah, I'm going there. I'm asking you to hype something different, help me grow so I can pay for help in support, and I'll keep money flowing to you. Mutual success. I do 25% referral, willing to negotiate.

    I has no shame.

    Raise your hand if you ever heard of cloudflexy before this thread.

    I was going to tweet a link to this thread at them...but they don't have twitter and their web site just has a placeholder for the twitter link.

    Their site also says they're owned by rack.sx. They also don't have twitter and their web site just has a placeholder for the twitter link.

    I think the core problem here is the companies you've agreed to promote. Or possibly the market you're promoting into...Chinese customers generate a lot of the complaints here so more marginal hosts may struggle with their chargeback mania.

    People who promote obviously sketchy or poorly-run hosts and then don't get paid...I'm having a hard time getting very sympathetic...

    Back in 2016 I wanted to give them a try. Their poorly designed website pushed me back, especially the logo. It felt really off and out of place. Just look at their twitter, lol. I eventually ended up going with wishosting. Now it's safe to say that I made a good decision.

    How this could work out?

    Cloud X - Ready now 10GB RAM for $9.99 per month, visit https://goo.gl/F1Y0Gi

    IIRC they rebranded to Cloudflexy this year. They completely abandoned their previous brand (shutting down the website, abandoning social media etc). Unfortunately there is no cloudflexy website in wayback machine, so you can't see how it was looking back then, but it was basically a one page placeholder. Now, it has at least some pages, but everything seems off as it has been with rackhost.co.

    I live in harmony with people. They hate me and I hate them.

  • Their website is indeed kind of mess.

    On their defence , as a costumer , I don't really have any complaints for that spec/price ratio , i have 2 VPS on them for couple months , and works fine , through I indeed feel heavy oversold problem.

    People who promote obviously sketchy or poorly-run hosts and then don't get paid...I'm having a hard time getting very sympathetic...

    I will say the following:

    • I believe it is a one man show run by the guy who has an account here, Costin
    • I tried his services in an older iteration of his company (racksx) and it was a bit shakey, with node issues and eventually he couldn't even offer the service that was sold any longer
    • I hoped he had improved things, and he very well may have as far as customer satisfaction with the product, however, he used to send me a lot of spam and it sounds like he may not have enough business again if he is having issues paying out affiliate money

    Lastly, not as a slight to the guy, but as a reminder to my self that I saw issues down the line with this group, I will include this as a reference to the above comments:

    My services with him were never anything to write home about but when they worked, were not awful. The reason I stopped doing business with him is because he couldn't keep nodes online and kept having issues with abusive users. Hopefully he has learned to better manage a node by now... one would hope.

    I don't know that I would suggest their services but of course I haven't tried them in quite a while so my opinion wouldn't be worth much.

    my 2 cents.
