It appears that not all of my commissions are showing on my stats page. What happened?
All orders must be approved before they will show up on your stats and you are given credit. Expect some of these orders to not be approved due to any of the following reasons:
- The credit card number supplied was incomplete, invalid, or not accepted.

- The order was a duplicate.
What is the difference between "# Upgrade" and "# Joins" columns, on my stats page?
The "# Upgrades" column tracks how many people have come from your site and signed up as a paying member. The "# Joins" column tracks the people who have signed up as free members.
How does RedHotPie track visitors from my site?
When you sign-up as an affiliate you will be given a unique affiliate ID, which is the same as the number at the end of your tracking URL that you use to link to our site. We use this ID to tell us where a referral has come from in order to credit that account ID accordingly. If you forget to include your ID in a referral URL, there is no way to accurately credit your account, and you will not be paid for that portion of your traffic.
What forms of promotion can I use?
The majority of our affiliates promote RedHotPie by placing our banners on their sites, but you may also join chat rooms, online clubs, etc. We strongly encourage you to remember chat room rules- it is better to simply talk about the benefits of meeting people on our site instead of just posting a URL. Please review our spam policy within our Affiliate Agreement
I just logged into my account and it was banned. Why?
RedHotPie does not condone cheating or spamming of any nature. Any accounts suspected of cheating or reported for spamming are immediately banned and all payment voided. Extreme steps must be taken to protect our company and legitimate affiliates. Typical affiliate causes include:
- People emailing us that your affiliate ID was used in spamming activities.
- Creation of fake accounts.
- High chargeback rates (2% or greater).
- Other inappropriate actions.
What is considered spam?
Spam is considered to be any attempt to deliver unsolicited bulk mail over the Internet. Almost all spam is commercial advertising. Potential target lists are created by scanning Usenet postings, stealing Internet mailing lists, or searching the Web for addresses. Such information is gathered with automated searches to retrieve email addresses for spamming.
Do you allow blind links?
Yes, you may send traffic any way you like, blind text links, thumbnail links, or you can use our proven banner, and text links.
