Had a look at the pay per call companies but I am not seeing anything about the conditions for the call.
I also searched the knowledge base but there doesn’t seem to be anything about pay per call.
I’m sure I’m looking in the wrong place or something. Can you help?
Thanks in advance.

Pay Per Lead is a great model for affiliate marketers and businesses employing them. Makes sense for the business and means that the affiliate marketer is truly providing value (ROI) to the business.

I thought I would write a few lines about pay per call program. I would never have thought that as much time and energy that I spend promoting these programs. I recently applied to one of their PPCall programs, and saw that I had had some calls but none had reached the time per call requirements. I have been interested in just how the program works when the other day I came across a friend that was in need of the services this pay per call program offered. I asked suggested that she call the number listed on the advertisement on one of the pages. I asked her to actually time her call and then get back to me and let me know what had transpired. I intentionally did not let her know I would make a commission on the program. However, due to my relationships I have with this company, I will not mention their name at this time in this posting.

The customer makes the initial call. After 2 minutes she was handed off from the prequalifer to the closer. She was placed on hold. She was required to leave her phone number incase she was disconnected***
While she was on hold, she was indeed disconnected. This occurred at approximately 2.30 seconds into the call. The time required by the advertiser is 3 minutes. According to her, she was a bit frustrated by this, until she received a call back by the advertiser. The initial call was documented on my affiliate control panel log as 1.47 seconds.
The second call according to her phone was 4 minutes and 34 seconds. However on my log it showed that she was online on the phone for 2 minutes and 42 seconds. I was essentially screwed out of my commission. Total phone time by her phone was over 6 minutes but the control panel showed two calls under 3 minutes each.
So what did I do next?
I borrowed a phone from an associate and made a call to the same phone number and carefully documented each stage of the process. I made the call and spoke with the prequalifier. This took 6 minutes and 28 seconds at which time I was put on hold for the closer handoff. Again, I too was disconnected. I also received a call back from the closer and began the interview again. I intentionally kept interrupting the closer to continue adding more time on the clock. I kept the closer on the phone for 22 minutes and 35 seconds.
The results from the control panel as follows.
There was only 1 entry on the log that showed a total time of 6 minutes and 47 seconds.
I did get my commission this time. However, the time was totally incorrect and off by over 25 minutes.
Considering the total amount of calls showing on my log, yet no commission shown except for the call I made, I suspect I have been screwed out of a substantial sum of money. Like I said, I have not mentioned the name of the Advertiser, or the Affiliate Service Provider but, I can assure you that it is one of the biggest if not the biggest affiliate service provider on the Internet.
It is my intention not to collect or cash the earnings from this program or the provider. I will however do one more test to confirm the numbers. If this situation holds true for the next call, I will contact an attorney, and the two of us will sit in on another test. If it again holds true and the numbers are similar, then I will initiate a class action law suit on behalf of all pay per call affiliate marketers and notify all of you to join in on the suit. I myself am a bit pissed off actually.
If you can’t trust your affiliate service provider, who can you trust?
