RegNow Description

RegNow is an e-commerce company which specializes in the digital delivery of software applications. It offers a platform for individuals to create software as well as an affiliate program for those who wish to sell or promote it on their websites. RegNow is owned by operated by Digital River which is located in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

RegNow Detailed Overview

Ask any experienced affiliate marketer what one of the best ways to earn commissions is, and they are likely to tell you that it's promoting digital products. The benefit to promoting digital products is that they can generally only be obtained online. A perfect example of this is the digital software company, RegNow, which specializes in delivering downloadable software. If you are an affiliate marketer who has ever wanted to promote digital or downloadable products, then this short review of RegNow will be of great interest to you.

What is RegNow and how does it work?

The RegNow affiliate program works in a manner very similar to other types of affiliate offers. Within their network, you will have an opportunity to promote software products in a variety of niches such as business, financial, gaming, educational and more. In addition to this, RegNow also partners with many major software brand names such as Symantec, Roxio and Pinnacle. By being able to offer your website visitors high quality software from well-known vendors in an easily accessible format, you should be able to make some generous commissions by promoting Reg Now products.

The way in which the RegNow program works is fairly straightforward. After you have joined their network, you will log in and apply to various merchant programs to begin promoting their software. After you have been approved by a merchant, you copy the links which are specific to your account and then place these links on your website. How you promote these links is up to you, but when an individual clicks on them, they are taken to the merchant's website were a sale is (hopefully) made and your commission earned.

One of the major benefits of being a RegNow affiliate is that many of the software programs offer a free trial period which can lead to more sales over the long run. Over the years, RegNow has discovered that software programs which offer a free trial period tend to convert into sales more often than those which are offered for sale immediately. The reason for this is that once a person becomes accustomed to using a piece of software, they are much more likely to purchase it.

In closing, if you are an affiliate marketer who has not yet ventured into the world of marketing digital products, then you may want to consider adding RegNow to your affiliate programs. RegNow is free to join and offers very generous commissions to its affiliates as well as a very flexible promotional policy. This means that as an affiliate, you are able to drive traffic to your websites in almost any manner you choose which makes RegNow a viable choice for almost any affiliate marketer.

Used them once, still not got the product

21 Jan, 2013, paid for a product to activate the demo version and received the licence code/key.

I have been using older versions of this software for 10 years and problems were always sorted out promptly when dealing directly with the author.

When I try to enter the key, I get the same pop-up telling me the demo has expired and to buy it on-line, with all links leading to RegNow.

I immediately contacted the software author's support but received no reply.

My antivirus software says that their web site

contains malware and prevents access to it.

I contacted RegNow and they contacted the author's support.

24 Jan, 2013, DRI (RegNow) deducted the money from my account.

I have still received no fix as of 02/03/13.

I have contacted RegNow several times and they reply promptly with a copy to author's support, but I am still unable to enter the license code/key to activate the software.

I have heard nothing from the author despite contacting them several times.

RegNow have now asked the product creator to refund my money, but the contract for the payment process is with Regnow as RegNow deducted the money from my account and made the payment to their third party affiliate.

Therefore, it is incumbent on RegNow to refund my money and then pursue their affiliate and recover their costs from them.

This stinks of a scam.

I will never use them again.

Very Bad Customer Service

I have been dealing with this company for a week, eight emails so far and two phone calls. The software I downloaded did not work on my PC, I told Tec Support within 30 min, no answer from them. Called on the phone and sent emails and all I have got is the run around. They have also doubled charged me and wont do a thing about it, so I will have to deal with my credit card company. Not saying the company or product is no good, it just didn't work on my PC. It's getting the refund back is the problem.

Recieved no code to activate software

I have purchased downloadable software from RegNow via Amediasoft through my PayPal account and have yet, 3 days later, received my activation code. In my opinion this seems to be a scam. I got an email copied to me that was sent to Amediasoft from RegNow saying this the first attempt to solve my problem. I have emailed RegNow and informed them that I was going to report them as spam fraud. I still haven't heard anything. The software is a program to download youtube video.

Support service from RegNow

I had formatted the wrong drive on my laptop, so I purchased the iCare Recovery Software from RegNow. In order to activate it, they were supposed to send me a purchased/license code that I was to copy and paste to a box on a screen. I received a code for the software and the order, but neither one specifically mentioned it was the purchased/license code. I e-mailed RegNow and asked them if either one was the code needed to activate the program. I waited an hour but got no response from them. I then tried their website and went to customer support but got an error response. It was like their support site didn't exist. I was not pleased with the way they handled support, if they even had any. Are they a sham? I don't know.

Products do NOT work as advertised

Bought two CD creation products, easy CD Burner and easy Audio, both did not work. One I could not even get to register with the supplied license. When I asked for a refund RegNow simply forwarded my request to the same company eMAIL I rec'd failure notices. They were able to take my money on behalf of these rip off products but just went thru the motions. STAY AWAY from RegNow. IF you need a product, find a known site and product and download from the company - stay away from these 3rd party sites.

Regnow was very nice

I ordered a software product from RegNow. After three downloads (the limit) it still would not install and kept giving me a corrupt file error message.

I sent an e-mail for help and for permission (new link) to try to download again even though my three tries were up. They e-mailed back and forth with me several times with suggestions. Although I had already tried the suggestions I did them again just to be sure.

The software still would not work on my computer.

They promptly offered me a refund. So my experience with them was positive even though the software I really needed did not work.

I gave them a B only because of that. A+ in service and response.

Do not buy from Regnow

I bought some software and when I downloaded it, the program would not work properly. I contacted regnow who referred me to the actual program developer (ipod to mac transfer program). They never responded to me to help with the program. I went back and forth with regnow and they refused to return my money or offer any assistance with the program developer. They are useless and buying programs from them is like throwing your money away. Stay away from regnow.

Problems with RegNow

I wouldn't recommend RegNow.

Just bought a software from RegNow, had a slight problem, asked them for assistance, got a reply: sorry we are not able to assist you.

We exchanged many e-mails, but the issue is still not resolved.

I just feel ripped off by RegNow.

I will never use RegNow again.

Beware

I had difficulties dealing with RegNow Inc

I purchased a software from RegNow Inc under the assumption that I was going to be able to unload the software right away. It was a software to retrieve files that had been lost in the computer. After I paid with my credit card I got a message saying that the following day I would be contacted and provided with instructions about how to retrieve my software. This was not acceptable to me because I needed to find the lost file right now. Therefore, I sent an email to RegNow Inc saying that I was going to purchase a similar software from another vendor and that I was no longer interested in making the purchase. The following day I repeated my request, and the following and the following to no avail. I have never received the software but still this company refuses to refund me the amount that I paid.

I made some decent money as an affiliate

My experience with RegNow was as an affiliate and I have to say that I was able to produce good results and earned decent money. I joined the site back around three months ago because of the wide variety of digital products. Once I registered I started searching for products, having something in common with the niche I have chosen and the selection grew pretty narrow. Despite of that I was still able to find a few products which proved to be worth the efforts in promoting them. Unfortunately quite a big part of the programs were outdated and they just don't have potential for sales. In just the first month with a lot of promoting on my site, I was able to get around 10 sales which in my book is a nice result, nothing special though. Just around two weeks ago I was able to reach the minimum cashout required and I received my payment in just several days. The support is also very professional and I got my questions answered in a reasonable time frame. Everything was explained in detail and cleared my hesitations. One thing I didn't like was that it took me quite some time to find the products I was searching for and it would be a good thing if RegNow updates their search system. Overall I would recommend the site if your niche is about software as it is a good way to get some additional cash.

RegNow is great. !

I have been an affiliate of RegNow for 2 years. It is much easier to advertise and sell software on your own website when you use RegNow. They have a wide variety of software items to sell. No matter what type of website or products you would be interested in selling they have something for everyone. Ranging from technical software to games and even screensavers. They add more all the time so it is frequently updated.

It it very easy to use and to figure out especially if you are new to an affiliate program. This is not one of those get rich quick schemes. You have to actually put the products you selected on you website which is very easy to do. I have not had any problems in my entire 2 years with RegNow.

I like this service

I joined this affiliate network couple of months ago when I was looking for a good affiliate network. So far, I haven't encountered any problem and all of the vendor deals are valid. The great thing about this affiliate network is that most of the vendors will automatically pay you immediately after a sale has been made through your affiliate link. This way you'll be assured that you won't be scammed by the vendors. The commission in this affiliate network is also very high and some vendors will even pay you with 60% commission. The payment system is great and you'll only need a $25 balance to be paid monthly, so even if you don't made much sales, you'll still get paid. And they're also still paying via PayPal so the previous commenter here is not saying the right thing.

In my opinion, selling a software is much easier than selling real-world goods and if you've setup a new website that's only focused in software like me, I'm really sure you could get a lot of money from here. I'm highly recommend this service!

My Affiliate Experience

I promoted some digital products from Regnow.com as an affiliate. Actually the product which I am promoting is created in 2006 and it is still receiving a few sales. I can't find products related to my niche and many products listed are very old. I am making 1 or 2 sales in a month. Regarding payout, I am still waiting to reach $100 to receive a check. After some bad experience with Paypal, Regnow discontinued it's relationship with paypal and you can't receive payments through paypal. Regnow is highly recommended for those who are running software related websites like anti virus, video converters etc. Their interface is good, but searching products is not efficient. I am sure it's a legit company and you can start earning by selling software.

Increase in sales but received complaints

Since I started using RegNow to distribute my software I saw more visitors to my site after a week of 2 and more people showing interest in my software packets. For those who are new to software distribution, RegNow contains a guide and tips to maximize your sales, and that certainly helped me a lot.

However, I got some complaints from customers that their ads were aggressive and I've heard that some redirected to malware. I contacted their support and got a (not so friendly) reply that they had nothing to do with it.

You could try RegNow and it does what if offers but it may have some nasty side effects like using aggressive marketing techniques (which is of course bad publicity for your software), so be careful.

I made a lot of money from doing nothing!

I signed up to RegNow about a year ago. At the time I had a few personal circumstances and so I set up my account to resell just a few products with trials and then I left the account as I was too busy to pursue it.

I logged on approximately 6 months later and found that from just leaving my account alone and doing nothing for 6 months, I had actually made $675. I returned to the site and began to further my affiliate links.

I certainly recommend this program. It's worked for me. A the review says, people are more likely to buy a product if they can try it first. I have tried to sell purchase only products but people seem uninterested. The trial software usually has quite a number of people who are interested and if they've used or seen it elsewhere before they seem to buy it on impulse.
