ExoClick.com Scam

exoclick scam ad network reviewI have been reviewing a lot of ad networks recently and I only put up network listings which are good to work with. You might be knowing that I don’t put those ad networks which are worthless in my opinion. Because many ad networks don’t survive long and are usually scam. They just come and go. Exoclick has been online for many years. Someone said they are the forth largest ad network. However, if you are thinking from a publisher point of view, they are worth shit. That’s because they DO NOT pay you. There are hundreds of sad stories from publishers. Exoclick loves advertisers because that’s how the money flows in. They hate publishers because they are going to lose a cut from that money. This is the ethics they follow, do not pay publishers. They are the scam ad network.

I usually work with direct advertisers on my sites, but since I had few ad spots available, I went to try Exoclick. A few days ago I joined ExoClick and they happily approved my website. I was working hard on my traffic.

For those who don’t know, ExoClick want their publishers to request their first payment. That means no matter how much money you make and how much traffic you deliver, you need to beg them for your first payment.

So, since I was working hard on my traffic, I got a balance of $50+ in my account in two weeks and since it was written on their website that publishers have to request their first payment, I did it. I asked them to activate my payment so that I can receive this as well as future payments. Within half an hour I received an email from their support which reads like this:

exoclick - scam - account blocked

You see, $50 is not a big money. The way you follow your business ethics matters. By giving a blatant reply that the site doesn’t meet the expectation and hence we are closing the account is just plain wrong. Because you had already approved my website when I joined your network.

If you think the site doesn’t meet your expectation, then it is your duty to reject the website on first hand and not after a user is requesting a payment. I wonder how many publishers have got paid by them, because what I see is that they don’t pay and if they do pay, they only pay their high end publishers. The small time publishers don’t matter to them.

To all my readers, I would just say to avoid Exoclick because publishers don’t matter to them. They don’t work on ethics, they don’t work on reasons. All that matters to them is Money that flows in from advertisers.

Worst!

I give them a zero rating their lack of professionalism and their support. I liked their dashboard panel, but that doesn't matter because what matters is the ethics.

    Hello Leonard,

    Thank you for contacting ExoClick Customer Services regarding your request to close your account and have your balance refunded.

    I am sorry to hear that you are wishing to close your account and no longer want to run campaigns with us and would like to find out a little more as to your requirements for traffic and the reasons you felt the platform didn´t work for you.

    Since it has been over 6 months since you initially funded the account, your account is unfortunately not eligible for a refund on the remaining account balance. Because of this, I would like to assist you further in testing traffic to see if by using up the remaining balance which will need to be done or this will be lost, we may be able to generate some good test results to get the traffic you are looking for.

    If you have any new plans or offers you need traffic for, please let me know your plans for this and I can advise further how this could be done.

    However, if you are sure you would like to close your account, please let me know and I can do this for you, however a refund would unfortunately not be possible.

    I look forward to your reply to hear more about your requirements.

    Kind regards,

  9. This company is a joke. I put in my application, created my ads, paid them the $200 minimum, then all of a sudden I get an email saying my account has been shut down permanently, it’s non negotiable, and best of all they won’t tell me why. Stand up company, bravo.

  10. Same here, they are scammers.
    When I’ve reached the minimun payout I contacted them via email to request the payment (why contact them?? If minimun payment is reached pay me! Why contact to request MY money??)
    The email is the same received in this article.
    Attention folks! Exoclick are shady and unprofessional! Stay away from them.

  11. ExoClick Scam Network

    A network SCAM, my account was blocked and closed. Wasting your time with this network.

    THEY WILL BLOCK YOUR ACCOUNT WHEN YOU ASK FOR PAYMENT

  12. Exoclick Scam,

    You Will Banned After Request First Payment

  13. EXoClick – Big scammer, this ads network is a SCAM in Europe. When you earn with them, they don’t want to pay, and block your account without any raison (or with wrong raison of them as securité problem or the web site have alot of ads, or your trafic is bad …)

    So, a recommandation, stay away from them or you’ll lost your time with them.

  14. Exoclick Scammer,

  15. Many forum talk about ExoClick Scam

  16. Exoclick turned scam

    I been working with them for 3 years now but then they suddenly blocked my account!

    My traffic is very legit since source is google and my site is high ranking.

  17. Wish I had read this before I put their ads on my site. I found a good source of traffic which was starting to build up some cash in my exoclick account and 3 days before payment was due they blocked my account and kept my cash.

    Seems they do this a lot!!.
