    Nah they aren't gonna see that. The advertiser won't even get your IP or name as long as you are doing the work through a cpa network and not directly through the advertiser. The network is who sees your ip and traffic source(if you show them it), and it's their choice if they wanna divulge that to the advertiser.

    The advertiser can say "stop aff #31387's traffic i don't like it" and they can reverse those leads, that's about it. If any network shared more than that without my consent i'd never work with them again.

    Umm, your 100% wrong. ( If we are talking about a case of him doing offers himself).They dont get your name of course but offers hosted by advertisers record IP. This is how we run detailed lead reports on fraudulent publishers. Advertisers hand us the IP on suspected fraudulent filled leads and the date and then it's as easy as putting in the date and matching the advertiser given IP for bad leads to our system so that we can question the affiliate.

    The network sees your IP but I have no idea where you would come up with that an Advertiser cannot see an IP for a completed offer. If they cannot track IP then they are complete fucking retards.

    Most IP's are recorded thru database tracking or purchase carts. It's simple.

    And just to clear this up, I do own a network and I am an advertiser throughout 20+ networks currently and I track every IP that completes an offer.
