Memebox Affiliates

Recommended Posts

I think this is the affiliate thread, not a general Q&A thread.....

 

anyway, @@MissJexie, no I have not.  And I haven't gotten my memepoints for my commission withdrawal that I made on monday.   Anyone else having that issue?

I have never done a withdrawal until this past week so I have no idea how long it usually takes, so I'm just waiting to kind of gauge it. How long does it usually take for them to process commission withdrawals?

if you are doing less than 30.00, which is for the memepoints, not cash, 4 days at the most. Cash withdrawals are only done once a month and I've never done that before. I usually just put it right back into memebox, so I can review more for my readers. Since I can only withdraw 29 at a time with memepoints, it is important to me to have them be very timely in converting that into my account. I do not know why it takes up to 4 days to convert them into memepoints. Seriously, once I do a withdrawal to memepoints, it should be automatic.

Oooh I see! I've been saving up my points for months because I figured it would be a better way to not blow through all the commission super quickly (because you all know I would lol) but yea, it will most likely be used to purchase more Memeboxes as I can't resist them and people like reading about them! ;)

 

I agree on the memepoints thing, it makes NO sense why it's not automatic.

the nice thing about doing it in 29 intervals is that you can do that as many times as you want during the month, so long that the previous withdrawal has cleared. Which again, is stupid. Why should it matter if the previous one cleared yet? They've already taken it out of my account, so it isn't as if I am going to "overdraw" my account...

 

 

the cash payout is only once a month. If I wasn't putting this back into memebox, I would do the cash payout.

I always send them mail and ask to make withdrawal immediately. They are giving me points in 24 hours.

I sent them an email on thursday and then on friday - nothing...they aren't responding to their affiliate emails??

 

We should not have to send them emails to withdrawal immediately if we are just converting to memepoints. they need to change that to be automatic. I don't like bugging them on my withdrawals....

Someone received this email when they sent in their reviews. It seems like they might discontinue giving out points for reviews. This pic is from someone in a Memebox facebook group I am in.

well, what about those who have been reviewing for memebox in the past and have given points to reviewers? I can understand this for the new glut of people who just jumped in to get points.

I haven't heard if people who have already gotten points from them are receiving this email, but I don't think it's a good sign if they are taking more than a day or two to credit people who send in their reviews. For me, they've sometimes credited the same day. I know some people have now been waiting a week or more.

I've never had my Memepoints the day I ask for them.  It takes three or four days and that's with emailing them, too.  Which means I need to ask ahead of suspected new box releases in order to try and have them when I need them.

 

I'm guessing their system is pretty haphazard and that's why Memepoint withdrawal hasn't been automated yet.  You can bet they would rather not have to do it by hand.  It's a pretty crappy website.

 

I have mentioned before that Memebox does have "lists".  I know this because I emailed about getting a review box and they said I was on their "Giveaway" list and not the "Review Box" list.  Since I currently prefer to be on the Giveaway list (i've got so many boxes coming it's ridiculous), I'm okay with that.

 

With all that being said, I'm curious to know if they are limiting review points to affiliates only now.  

 

Either way, I think its good for a blogger to send in their reviews.  If you want to get noticed, that's a good way to do it.  While they may not get points now, getting on "the list" is a good thing!  

 

Edited to add: Yeah!!  Where's our September points?!  And...  they've been doing giveaways at the beginning of every month :D

Still never heard back on points for my Cute Wishlist review, so I resent that for a sixth time along with my Luckybox 9 review today. Might just give up on the points. But I'll still keep blogging, I have the Scent trio coming next Tuesday! :D

I guess I just barely missed the review points, I started getting my boxes and sent them my 5-6 reviews twice and still no points. It's a little disappointing considering those points would go right back into more boxes to review and promote for them. But as it stands without the points, I'm not getting any new boxes. I will wait for September codes to get any more.

I hate asking this question, but I am concerned with the lack of response from the affiliate email.  I do hope they aren't being spammed by customers who aren't affiliates.   I usually get a response within a day or two and I haven't. 

 

I've had an outstanding withdrawal request to memepoints from last monday (august 25th).  Anyone else having issues with memebox completing those transactions?      I wonder if the affiliate help desk is on vacation or something....

Unfortunately, there were quite a few people in the Memebox thread telling people if they couldn't get a response with the [email protected] e-mail, to use the affiliate e-mail. I remember reading it and cringing. It's been awhile since I've seen it (although it's happened here and there within the past month) so I wouldn't doubt that they're overloaded with e-mails as much as the regular e-mail is. 

 

It's irritating to say the least.

sigh, that is irritating.

 

I never emailed the affiliate email for non-affiliate stuff.  And when I wasn't an affiliate, I would never dream of emailing them.

okay, so it isn't just me then...

 

don't they realize that we are just putting our points back into their products?  Why would they delay it?

I haven't seen anything reminding us to make cash withdrawal requests and I think that today is supposed to be the day that happens? Blerg I have a shopping list ready (and it includes, like, six boxes!).

I guess they don't give a flying flip about getting new orders or business....

I have a sinking sensation that they're ridiculously, preposterously understaffed. If they're anything like other start-ups, I suspect that they get a lot of their labor from student interns. The people I've talked to who handle affiliate stuff seem competent and speedy--I suspect that they're either just massively understaffed right now or understaffed and between semesters (read: between unpaid or minimally paid college student intern-slaves).

I don't mind the slight delay.... gotten a small withdrawal accumulated over 2 months. I hope it will be processed before an awesome box appears! lol

I'm just irritated if paypal charges for currency conversion/ service tax. Does anyone know what % we lose?

The replies I have gotten varies from a professional robot with monotonous answers to a teenage college girl who abuses emoticons. I would like to think that they are working on synchronizing their CS team and setting up a standard protocol on how to deal with stuff.
