DX Affiliate Commisions now from 10% up to 30%

  • FallenArchangel Top 10 Forum Poster Saturday, October 6, 2012 9:28 PM Reply
    I stumbled onto these new commission rates whilst trying to find the new link formats.

    I've seen the post
    http://club.dx.com/forums/forums.dx/threadid.872461?page=1#872461

    but I thought there was a more recent format with a whole bunch of additional link parameters tacked on to the end ("url" or "refer" or "ID" or something) and I can not find the posts regarding that anymore. If anyone could please give me a link to them that would be much appreciated. I checked the rest of the pages in the thread I linked above and it does not seem to be in that thread. I remember seeing it somewhere here though.

    I'm confused. I found the affiliate link parameter stuff I was thinking off (the Utm_rid=XXXXXXXX&Utm_source=affiliate) but not sure whether that is the correct one to use now or not.

    This post from sophiezhang dated May 2012

    says
    "****The old Referral code form is like : ?r=????, and the new affiliate link is http://dx.com/?Utm_rid=XXXXXXXX&Utm_source=affiliate, both of them are available to use, all referral orders made by the two links will get referral points."

    but the sticky thread (which is admittedly dated 2011)
    http://club.dx.com/forums/forums.dx/threadid.872461?page=1#872461
    Does not mention that same new format link

    Nor can I find it in this thread discussing the new Affiliate scheme in September 2011
    http://club.dx.com/forums/Forums.dx/threadid.994741#994741

    I can't find the original post where the whole "Utm_rid=XXXXXXXX&Utm_source=affiliate" business was announced, only posts talking about it. Has it been scrapped? Or should it be added to the sticky post?

    I stumbled onto these new commission rates whilst trying to find the new link formats.

    So you didn't catch up with these several months ago? Ah well. It was a pleasant surprise way back whenever. I'm not sure if there was an official announcement of the new rates - I'm sure I discovered them by accident. It's another example of DX not doing the right thing at the right time in the right way. Why not get us affiliates all excited that DX is looking after us and the affiliate program? Why not use it as an excuse to prompt us to revamp our own advertising efforts? It's another example of an opportunity lost by DX.

    It's a bit sad that even though my commission rate is now twice as much, I'm earning less from referrals than I was a year ago.

    But about this other issue, let me get this straight: The only staff mention of the new referral codes you have found is buried in the middle of a 50 page thread on a not specifically related topic? Seriously? To coin a phrase, what the DX is going on?

    This is classic example of DX not doing the right thing at the right time in the right way.

    Sorry, did not realise it was old news. I had not been following the forums much for quite a while.

    Seemed mildly amusing since the headlined 10-30% type rates were used on the same page as where, only a bit lower down, they were still referred to as the 1-3% type rates in the second table.

    Yes, I've been looking and looking and can not find any kind of official post regarding the new Affiliate link formats and the main sticky for that forum section is from last year still without any mention of the latest "new and improved" link formats.

    I thought I had remembered reading an announcement about it at some stage but if I did I can not find it again and it certainly hasn't been made sticky or incorporated into the existing main sticky thread.

    Maybe it was deleted. I noticed posts deleted from the allowed DX sites list thread also, where Alibaba has been removed and I'm still not sure whether it is now no longer allowed to be mentioned or whether it was removed by mistake.

    I guess I will find out when I next request something in the product request forum and get chastised for it.

    Apparently the new links can be seen if one is logged in and goes to the Affiliate page,
    http://club.dx.com/forums/Forums.dx/threadid.1055135?page=50#1230049

    Which means one has to be signed up (and have agreed to the terms and conditions) before one is allowed to see the details. They do not show up just from being logged in to DX.

    Not sure whether it shows all the available variations of the links or just the new type. If the Sticky thread is still valid then there should be at least 3 types of links available. Though there also seems to be some confusion about whether all of them still work.

    According to the email we'll temporarily get double points. Sadly the email didn't say exactly what points are going to be doubled. All referral points earned during the two months? Or only on certain promotional items?

    Huh? The ACTUAL commission is still only 1-3%.

    When they say 10-30%, it's referring to the number of DX Points earnt.

    $100 -> 10 DX Points (10% WOW!!!) -> $1 USD (oh... 1% in real money).
