Affiliate programs are run by people, and people sometimes make mistakes, so APCW 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 APCW's sister organization, 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 Royal Partners, either positive or negative, please share your opinion with your fellow affiliates in the GPWA Royal Partners forum. And if you believe that Royal Partners has failed to promptly rectify any breach of the code of conduct, please post your observations in the GPWA Royal Partners forum so they can respond.
