Affiliate programs are run by people, and people sometimes make mistakes, so GPWA sponsor affiliate programs may sometimes fail to comply with the code of conduct. Good affiliate programs act in an ethical fashion, take responsiblity for their mistakes, and work hard to ensure they are corrected. The GPWA operates independent forums for sponsor affiliate programs to create an environment where there is visibility around the interactions between affiliates and sponsor affiliate programs. This transparency enables affiliates to review the experiences of their peers and factor that information into considering whether they wish to work with a particular affiliate program.
If you have experience with Mate Affiliates, either positive or negative, please share your opinion with your fellow affiliates in the GPWA Mate Affiliates forum. And if you believe that Mate Affiliates has failed to promptly rectify any breach of the code of conduct, please post your observations in the GPWA Mate Affiliates forum so they can respond.
