    I'm just starting to get used with the cpa networks and cpa marketing so I would really appreciate if you money makers can share your experiences.

    So the problem is how to find and choose the right offers?

    I have signed up with many cpa networks but most of them have no information on when and where the pixel fires. So as to solve this one I thought I'm only gonna deal with email submits because it should be clear that one only has to enter the email and the pixel fires and it's also easy to test that with a proxy. But when testing I discovered that there is a massive shaving going on with email submits and some only fire on second page submit, reading threads on this forum some of you said that it's a waste of time using them.

    Okay so let's dump the email submits, but when starting to use the longer offers how do you know when the pixel fires? It's a pain in the ass to test offers yourself that are up to 5 pages long.

    Please share your experiences on the following:

    1. What's the stuff with email submits? If there's a massive shaving with email submits then which are the offers that aren't being shaved like that? Where is the line? (Yes I know it's different with every network but still, give me something...)

    2. Is asking from your AM the only way to find the offers you are looking for with networks that are badly organized?

    Tell me how do you manage all that "finding good offers" stage?

    Thanks a lot!

    With email submits, they usually don't pay if you put in the same email that they already have in their db or when someone already has their cookie (i think). That's why when testing yourself with proxy, clear cache/cookie first.

    Also if you want less shaving, try offers that say *No Scrubbing*.

    I have noticed shaving. Not onl on email submits but everything. Makes me thinks some black hat stuff evens it out. I have had people submit correct legit info for offers they were interested in and then I go each to see if it converted and it shows a click but noting.Pisses me off to know end.
