Roxy Turtle, runs an Anthro fansite, seems to be having an issue with RewardStyle. Apparently she’s been having having tracking issues with her affiliate links – and she claims that while RewardStyle was initially helpful they have not only closed her complaint, they became intimidating when she responded she would not let this drop.
Unfortunately, the relationship with RewardStyle seems to be taking a nosedive…I’ve been getting emails from a RewardStyle Vice President that feel threatening. Retaliatory.
Saying “all I want is to understand what happened and get a promise that it won’t happen again”, Roxy went into Mistreated Little Person Versus The Big Bad Corporation mode.
I feel scared and unsure what to do…They have the team and resources at their disposal. They are a huge company and they seem to be putting their efforts into threatening me. I just don’t get it…I have been crying for most of the afternoon…I’m one tiny person and RewardStyle a huge company. It feels so scary to me that they might come after me, retaliate. I feel scared.
She goes on to say she feels RStyle is gearing up to drop her because she “asked too many questions”, but that isn’t what she wants at all. After going on and on about how scared and upset she is, and how she feels ‘threatened’ by RStyle, Roxy says she still wants to work with the company.
Ideally, at this point what I want is what I mentioned above: an in-depth explanation of what happened, an agreement on how to prevent this in the future, and a promise that the relationship will go back to normal with no retaliation.
I really don’t get all the blogger kowtowing to RewardStyle. Are they just the only affiliate company out there or something? I just don’t understand why Roxy would want to continue working with a company that treats her in the manner she’s claiming. Surely RStyle isn’t the only name in the game. Get out and find another affiliate company!
