WP Engine Affiliate Program 2020 Finally They Paid Me After 4 yrs

It is no secret that WP Engine affiliate program has a very high payout. Internet marketers & bloggers always look forward to high paying affiliate programs & but It is no secret that a WP Engine affiliate program has a very high payout.

So after long break of 4 years I got my payment from WP Engine Affiliate, they initially screw me up & ban me from their affiliate program.

Wp engine affiliate reviews

 

You can earn a lot of money with WP Engine Affiliate Program 2020 but there  is Twist in their affiliate program ( But before promoting through coupon keyword you need to take their their permission)

So WP Engine wants to promote this hosting because they offer a huge commission rate of $200+ on every sale of their hosting plans.

WP Engine is very clever in their affiliate program I will share my personal experience here: As long time back I told everyone social media that how WP Engine scam em up with affiliate commissions.

Because I did see some affiliates were brand bidding for WP Engine keywords and they dont accept this at all, I never did brand bidding for WP Engine, I did SEO  and rank my blog for their review & coupon keywords.

So avoid doing PPC for WP Engine they will ban you instantly, they did this to one of my close friend who was bidding for their brand terms, his commissions were reversed instantly. Better do comparision posts like :

WP Engine Vs Siteground

WP Engine Vs Bluehost

WP Engine Vs Inmotion

WP Engine Vs Godaddy

WP Engine Vs Hostgator

WP Engine Vs Pressable

WP Engine Vs Flywheel

WP Engine Review 

 

These keywords are best for making sales for WP Engine, I will do the same now focusing on these keywords can help me make many sales from my blog : BloggersIdeas.com, as my blog have good authority.

Why Bloggers & Affiliates promote WP Engine

I too promoted WP Engine for huge affiliate commissions & got some good sales through WP Engine Review & WP Engine Discount keywords in 2015.

So every blogger here try very hard to promote WP Engine hosting & rank on 1st of Google SERP.

I too tried & rank on the keyword  WP Engine Coupon on 1st page.  As a blogger I make lot of  efforts to rank site on Google first page. You know SEO is not easy thing, bloggers like me have sleepless nights and we work hard to rank our sites on Google 1st page.

They voided my huge commissions too check  screenshots below: loss of more  than $3500

WP Engine Fraud

How i got commissions back & sort out the matter with WP Engine Affiliate Team, I met Ashwin, he is partnership manager & when I saw him at Affiliate Summit Vegas 2020 event, I decided to speak & told why you eat my commissions for keywords I was ranking in 2015-2016.

Wp Engine Affiliate Program Review

Ashwin told me that we can form an agreement & find a bridge to work, I said sure I am here to help and you can do this by giving my commissions or find a suitable way to have win win deal for both of us. As I clearly mention Ashwin that I will not be happy if my hard work goes in vain.

I was really pissed with WP Engine team to be honest when I saw first time. I did have heated arguments at the their booth and Ashwin came to me, I decided to calm down, because I learned one thing spoiling business relationship will never make you money, so I said Ashwin I need a solution here which benefits both the parties.

Back in 2015 I busted my ass off to rank on Google because many big competitors like WpBeginner.com, Retailmenot.com, Groupon.com were ranking for WP Engine keywords.

I beat them on Google & started driving sales for WP Engine but suddenly i got banned & my commissions were reversed.

Screenshots from  some  of my conversations with Dustin :

 

I got warning & I removed keywords coupon from article

I  did get  a warning from WP Engine for using coupon keyword on my blog post: BloggersIdeas.com, but  once I  got the warning I immediately removed the coupon keywords from my article.

Here are some proofs of my blog coupon keyword removal. Dustin warned me to remove this, I did that too.

 

wpengine fucks dont buy themwpengine scam reviews

 

After coupon keyword removal my rankings got down & I  didnt made any sales from  WP Engine. after a month I got my ranking up again , I made some sales but again they reverted my sales.

But I can say my USA trip was successful because at ASW Vegas 2020 event, I meet the WP Engine team and sorted out the issue.

Conclusion: WP Engine Affiliate Program Review 2020 They are Good but before you start promoting them, make sure you contact affiliate manager & share your promotional methods to avoid ban & commissions reversal. If you have any concern about WP Engine affiliate I suggest you reach the out & find a bride to work.

    The only thing I find unfair was not giving you the $3500 commissions.
    Every company has it’s own conditions and agreements, so not allowing the use of certain keywords is totally acceptable.
    But they should have given the commissions for the sales because whatever the case was, they are going to benefit from those referrals.
    Anyways, I’ll clear all these matters with them before joining their program. Thanks for bringing this to my notice.

  10. I was not aware of this. I am going to cut the name of WPEngine from one of my blog post which is sharing top high paying affiliate programs. They are the true losers who play with the feelings of bloggers. I can understand how much annoying is that when they would have asked you to remove that keyword from the website and in undue influence you did that too to get commission which was voided. But they are heartless. Really.
    Thanks for sharing and say them F*** O** from my side too.

    Hi Sonam!
    I never thought they could do that. I applied for their referral program and I was declined. It’s good to know that this program is nothing but scam.
    Thanks for the information!

    I really appreciate it Sonam, that you are putting out the truth about the WP Engine program. So I decided to do the hard work and read carefully through the terms and try to make sense out of it. Well, turns out that there is a lot that is open to interpretation which is making a little difficult to work with them.. :/
    Best of luck!!

    Anyway,
    Human readable version of the terms here:

    One of my friends recommended them as he made good money a year ago. I was thinking to start with WP Engine but I might stay with the other hosting companies like Bluehost. Thanks for this information!

    TRUE STATEMENT. Just thought I scored big getting them 6 sales in a week, owed me $1200. Then they voided all the payments to me and won’t answer my phone calls or emails. Keepin’ it classy Share-a-Sale and WPEngine. Ugh. Wasted a hundreds on PPC and hours of time of set-up just to be scammed.

    I was approved in January and after earning several commissions was now declined. All because I promoted them on Twitter.

    You broke the rules. You can’t advertise for coupon keywords. Many people who advertise this way have no coupons and just steal some other affiliates cookie. WP Engine affiliate program works well for me. Heck, I will take $200 for a $35/mo sale any day.

    • They took away my sales and they didnt allow me do SEO, while other affiliates doing SEO for coupon keywords. They are surely a SCAM
