Important Announcement: PPD Partner Compensation
March 21, 2023
Dear DDownload Partners,
Due to economic circumstances, we regret to inform you that we will be significantly reducing the compensation for Pay-Per-Download affiliates by the end of this month, on March 31, 2023. The compensation table will be adjusted to match that of our competitors. It is also possible that we may completely remove the PPD system in the future. We no longer believe it is viable to offer this method at this time.
We have found that this business model is no longer profitable. Server costs have doubled in the past six months, and we are experiencing difficulties with payment models for our customers. It is in our best interest to make this decision in order to safeguard our business. It has never been our intention to generate profits at the expense of our affiliate customers. We have communicated this as transparently as possible.
We understand that some may disagree with this decision and may choose to leave us, which we will also accept. However, we cannot provide a good service if we continue in this manner.
We still do not wish to have unnecessary advertising on our website to compensate for the Pay-Per-Download business models. In this era where ad-blocker features are widely used, it does not make sense to continue offering this service.
Unfortunately, this decision has brought sadness to our team, as this website sparked something bigger within us three years ago than we could have imagined. Especially when working as a team for something that we invested more heart than mind into.
We recommend our affiliate partners to transition to the Pay-Per-Sale compensation model soon, and we will be releasing some optimizations shortly.
We want to express our gratitude for your years of loyalty as an affiliate partner through our Pay-Per-Download model.
Display Error in the Payout System on September 5, 2022
September 6, 2022
Dear Affiliate Users,
Yesterday, we experienced a display error for Bitcoin wallets during payouts. We sent 70% of the payouts to outdated, unused wallets that mostly date back to 2019 and were nonexistent for many users. As proof, you can contact us, and we will provide you with the transaction number.
We want to emphasize that only Bitcoin wallets were affected, and not others.
To prevent this from happening in the future, we will always cross-check the wallets.
Currently, we have resolved the issue.
Unfortunately, we have to take responsibility for this damage. For this reason, we will be paying out the unpaid “PAID” withdrawals gradually. We kindly ask you to create a support ticket for any payments not received, so that we can mark them as “In Progress” and then “Closed” once they are paid out.
We appreciate your loyalty and hope for prompt improvements.
