Memebox Affiliates

Recommended Posts

I had the DHL man come to my door today with a pink mailer. I was actually quite surprised, I think I assumed I wouldn't receive any more boxes for review since they stopped shipping to certain areas and I just assumed little old Australia would be next.

 

When I saw the pink mailer I knew it couldn't be my global yet and I had no other boxes coming. When I opened it to find the Thanksgiving for you box I was over the moon! It has an awesome selection of goodies in it and I'm so excited to dig in!

I got that one too a few days before Christmas, although I still haven't gotten an e-mail about it with links to the products etc like they have been doing lately with review boxes. I might shoot Lauren an e-mail and see if she can get those to me before I post it! It's a pretty good box, although I would have prefered the "For Me" box between the two, as this one is more makeup-heavy!

I'm reviewing two hair products and Lauren said that even she didn't have info on the completely new one. sob I actually had to translate instructions for how to use the stuff so readers would know what's up--I can't write about this stuff without telling people how long to leave it on! hahahaah I am fine with just throwing stuff at my hair and seeing how it goes, but most people would probably want to know the instructions! ahhaaha

 

Also--can I just rant--WHY oh why do Korean sites use images for most text and photos instead of html code? I had to type this hair product info in Korean from the product page because there was no way to highlight and translate the text--everything on the page was images (I'm good at using optical character recognition software, but it seems easier to just type the info up). It's a terrible way to design for the web, in part because it effectively excludes people with vision disabilities from using screen reader software and also because it prevents us peeps who don't know how to read Korean (or read it well) from doing some quick and dirty translation so we can talk about the products more fully! urhghggh Meet. Us. Halfway. Plsssss.

I'm not on the list of people that gets products for review, but today I randomly received the blanc doux sunscreen from the Wine & Cheese box. I don't remember entering any contests of anything. I'm so confused!

^^^^ this.  I swear, it is such a pain in the ass.  That is why I will always love Shara Shara - because 9 times out of 10, they do post the ingredients in TEXT!

Hi ladies! Those of you who requested points recently, how long did it take you to receive them? I requested withdrawal two weeks ago and it's still pending. Is this the norm these days?

It's really, really random. I'm hoping things get moving again on Monday. I'm waiting for review points, withdrawals, and a points credit that should have been taken care of a month ago. /sigh

I requested points almost two weeks ago and they're also still pending.

I've been getting my review points quickly but to be honest I've lost so much faith and interest in Memebox in the past month and a half that I don't know if I'll even bother to review my remaining boxes.  Why give M. the publicity for, say, the Chocolate Mania box when they don't have anything even remotely similar for others to buy any more?

Thank you for your replies. This is the first time it's taken this long, and I was beginning to worry.

I'm wondering if any of us will be getting our $5 off codes for January, our points/money withdrawals...

 

I sometimes have no idea what Memebox does half the time. :( They can't respond to customer emails in a timely manner, no boxes are coming out, and affiliates are on the backburner, it seems.

 

I'm with a lot of other people in saying that I'm kind of tired of them at this point. I miss the nice commissions coming in, but they've lost the momentum and I'm pretty sure they've killed a lot of their business because of it.

I agree totally about the loss of momentum. At first the slowdown was causing people to buy whatever box they put out, but now I think it's causing people to take a critical look at the amount of items they have and re-thinking what they truly want to buy. I know that's the case for me anyways. I still want to spend my points, but I'm not longer itching to buy a new box.

If they would go back and put out the global bundle, I would purchase it...  I do know that people like the monthly boxes..

 

a few different themes(sequels like fermented, honey;  and some new ones) each month, the standards (like free from oil, hair & body, pore care, masks), one collab per month and I think that would be the winning combo.  They don't need to come out with 25-30 boxes a month, 5-10 would be more than enough - and if they stocked them properly.

I think Memebox was just on break until today. I remember someone saying that they were told something like that, but it all sunk into the goo that's my brain these days.

Did everyone get the email about the change to the affiliate program? Oh, and it's only $3 off $30 this month.

Yeah, and the switching of the affiliate platform. That also means we will no longer be able to redeem our affiliate revenue for points.

Yep I just got the e-mail.

 

I'm sort of "whatever" about the affiliate program changing considering sales are plummeted to an all-time-low, but the $3 off $30 coupon rubbed me the wrong way BIG TIME.

 

We used to get $5 off coupons. Then they change them to $5 off $30, which was annoying in itself considering most of their boxes don't cost that much. Now it's $3 off $30. Pretty soon it'll be nothing.

 

Just at my wits end with Memebox lately.

I'm so ready to walk Away it's a joke .i was just pmd from my sleep by a few people about the email just read now can't get back to sleep. So like VIP affiliate means nowt too now . And no boxes still so $3 off is kind of off . We know we have divorced the global sector but we had your money and would rather cheat in you with china know as she has more money than you and by shagging her we can be better without you . Ok cheers . How can affiliate be of any use to anyone with no boxes . I understand the American affiliates are still getting sales due to people using the links to buy through the American shop side of things but European affiliates are not . I'm still awaitng an email to be honest with no more European shipping as I see how this is playing out. I also feel this is the reason we are seeing no new boxes . This gives memebox the month of January to get everyone's review points in and converted and affiliate points in then they can hand it over to someone else and it will no longer be their problems when things go wrong just other peoples .

Because I am a member of a dozen other programs on Rakuten and it only converts to cash [the choice of either check or direct deposit, there's no option for PayPal], and Memebox specifically said that they want Affiliate commissions to be streamlined, so that's why they are now doing it through a network. Also, unless Memebox worked out some premium deal for their affiliates [which I highly doubt they did], the base payout threshold at Rakuten is currently $50, you get nada unless you reach that. If you don't reach $50 within a calendar year, Rakuten will pay any outstanding commission at the end of Q1 of the following year. That email did not mention a lot of things about Rakuten, like the fact that they will need your SSN and that you will now officially have to pay taxes on that income.

 

Edited to add: It's not a sketchy network, Sephora and Macy's are among their official clients.

interesting....

 

well, as I am American, I already have to officially pay taxes on it, so that is nothing new for me and memebox asked us already for our SSN.  thank you for that information! 

 

I can understand why they did this because they have messed up on the affiliate commissions in the past, plus they never can give us the exact $$ in the payout with paypal.

    • Careprost is a regenerating agent that was originally developed to treat hypotrichosis and restore healthy eyelash growth. The product is a sterile solution that should be applied externally, treating them with the growth lines of the upper eyelashes and eyebrows.  Perfect eyelashes complete the look of your eyes; they add beauty to you and make you look attractive. Fuller eyelashes not only define your eyes but also sharpen your facial features. Eyes with long lashes look bigger and brighter. Whatever might be your skin’s complexion, your sharp features make you glow even in your dark skin color. The cosmetic market has a wide variety of eyelashes of different colors, length, density, and curvy ones etc. which you can wear with ease. But are these fake eyelashes are much being easier to apply or they are actually hassled. Putting fake eyelashes is a tough task and make the process troublesome is to make them intact for a long duration, controlling your hands to not to touch them. Using fake eyelashes is a temporary solution; it does not give you a natural look.
