Awin (former Zanox) reviews & ratings »

Founded in 2000, the german Zanox grew to be one of the key players in affiliate marketing, especially in europe.
It seems like they actually care about the brand image since the company is part of large corporations like Axel-springer (news publishing) and Publi groupe (marketing).
Awin uses various platforms to engage with the community like forums, blogs, videos and social media.
There`s an interesting VIP opportunity for the most successful partners that provides higher commision rates, a personal account representative and invitations to zanox events.

The minimum commision payment is 25$ and it`s paid monthly via check, direct deposit or wire transfer.

Awin (former Zanox) Reviews & Ratings

Zanox operates like a scam site to US-based affilates. I have been trying to collect payments from them since August 2014. They refuse to pay, citing problems with my wire transfer instructions. However, my information is correct, but their online forms are not compatible with many U.S-based wire transfers. Even worse, their escalation process is non-existent. They operate like a Nigerian scam site (and that is being unkind to Nigeria). STAY AWAY FROM ZANOX if you have a U.S. bank. You will never get paid by Zanox.

I strongly recommend to not use this network, anything can happen with them at anytime all at your own cost.

I don`t think they paid me everything, but it`s still better than what most international networks do

The network seems alive and breathing, which is good.
