    Upon frequent request I will soon implement an affiliate program.

    And hints, ideas about the share I should offer ?
    What would make you to promote cloakfish happily and what would you not like to see ?

    I'd appreciate responses and consider your ideas.

    Let me begin by saying I have used your service in the past. In my experience, the results were average-above average.

    To make me 'happily' promote cloakfish, I would want to be able to truthfully say that it is a company that has the best product for the price. I am fairly close to that position now, but there have been some times when I feel like it wasn't the top solution.

    I hope you don't take this the wrong way. For what I paid, overall it is a great service. There were just a few times that I was disappointed. I guess I always remember the bad times over the good times. (personality flaw?)

    I appreciate your comment ;)

    I started at this time with the affiliate program because all real issues and bugs are ironed out at the current release in my eyes.
    When have you been using cloakfish ? Since auto-rotation (and now "light-mode" autorotation + api) exists I've received very positive comments on it.

    Performance is still something that can be improved but the high level of anonymity is a natural restriction.
    I think there are several groups of people who could be very interested in Cloakfish if they learned about it.

    Btw, if you have suggestions to get rid of downsides you see in Cloakfish just email or PM me.

    I am sure it's a better product than 95% of the crap found in clickbank :)

    It is currently removed because someone reported it as sales thread to the Mods which needs to be paid for.
    Imho it's hard to differ, when is a thread about a tool allowed and when do you have to pay for it ? Most tools in there are commercial or leads for commercial tools so I did not think much about it when creating it a few months ago.

    Will probably be back once it is cleared with Dave, waiting for his response atm.

    Justone, I agree with you it is better than 95% of the others. I haven't used it in a while because I found another solution for the time being. When did you start with the new services start? (Sorry, I should have stated I haven't used it in awhile in my first thread.)

    Auto-rotation was part of Version 1.04 and every Standardfish license or higher.
    You maybe had a lower license or an older version, with auto-rotation you don't have to choose IPs by hand anymore and changing your IP is just the click of a button (or timeout/api) without any other work.
    Also performance through auto-rotation is way better than by hand (route-optimization).

    The current release is 1.05.00

    Well lacking some suggestions I created this:
    http://www.cloakfish.com/?tab=customer
    legal terms: http://www.cloakfish.com/?tab=legal#affiliates

    any suggestions ?

    Commission rate is 10% on the first full license and all evaluation licenses from accounts that were created following the affiliate link.
    The link itself looks like a product link so people don't remove the affil part of it.

    The customer sections shows all page impressions, all created accounts and the sales made on those accounts.


    I did keep the terms/conditions rather small, actually I don't care about marketing methods as long as they do not cause legal trouble from me.
    So no need to hide referer or cloak anything else.

    Changes can still be made.

    Hi pluto, what do you mean by CB ?
    Cloakfish is currently not part of any affiliate network, all you have to do is create yourself a free account there and refer people in a way you like.
    Payout is made by paypal, if paypal can't be used libertyreserve is also possible (as long as the balance is available)

    Because I was asked multiple times:
    * Payment by liberty-reserve is possible if paypal is no option in your country
    * You do not have to hide your referer, you can send your leads from any page or place
    * email marketing is allowed
    * forum and PM marketing is allowed
    * At this time you do not need to supply any tax forms or similar, we are not from the US

    Also I was asked how to join, to explain this again:
    All you need to do is visit
    Code:
    http://www.cloakfish.com/?tab=order
    , enter your name and email and a password of your choice.
    Now you are in your account page, there you see your referred statistic and your referral link.
