    I am thinking of going into cpa. Have read a few thread about cpa. From what i understand, i dont have to promote the real offer right? Just promote something related to the offer/same niche that have high monthly search and get them to submit their information, am i right?

    "Cost Per Action or CPA (sometimes known as Pay Per Action or PPA; also Cost Per Conversion) is an online advertising pricing model, where the advertiser pays for each specified action (a purchase, a form submission, and so on) linked to the advertisement."
    You're promoting the offer and you get paid for purchase, form submission, download, etc. depends on the offer.

    Ok, so for example ive read people promote keygen for some games, lets say far cry, do i need to search cpa offer about far cry? I take a look on the sample landing page, and it just redirect me to complete survey about iphone, bla bla..before i can download the keygen..

    I dont quite understand this..

    You can promote something that you can bring traffic with, and from there you promote various offers..

    In your example people are promoting game hacks/keygens because those are popular and bring in good amounts of traffic and they probably use a content locker that causes the visitors to complete an offer before they unlock the keygen for download

    Thanks man, i got really confused on this, so it can be offer from any type of niche. But does it broken the cpa network TOS? How does cpa company make money from this when they got random people information that maybe doesnt have any interest with their offer? So i need a content locker for this method?

    This surely break their TOS.
    In facts, no CPA will ever admit clearly they allow fake or copyrighted content under their content locker and most of them will ban you if you do this.

    PPD networks such as Fileice, Sharecash, FileFire etc... are man in the middle so are more lenient on that sense.

    Your concern about people filling offers they do not have any interest with is correct and clever ;)
    This is what differentiates incentive offers from non incentive.
    The non incentive normally pay more as there are good chances that the person that fills them is really interested in the offer (and so is a potential customer). But these cannot be on a content locker and can't be used to give something in turn (the incentive).

    Incentive offers pay less as the person who will fill them is unlikely to be interested in the offers but just to complete them as quick as possible to get the file you offer (the incentive).
    With incentive, you normally don't have to worry about what putting in the locker as most network have an automatic system to exclude non incentive offers from the lockers.

    At an advanced stage, you will instead decide what offers to put in the locker to make sure it fits with the age, sex and other details of the average person who is looking at getting your incentive.
    This is because if a 40 years old mum is willing to download, say, a Chefville cheat, she will be more likely to fill an offer for home furnishing rather than a free PS vita offer.
