    Hi, I have recently tried to promote CPA Lead Content Locker.

    They have 'Premium Offers' which your supposed to apply for.

    So you would guess they wouldn't show these offers you can't get paid for in your locker right?

    Your wrong! They also hide this.

    I checked my Statistics and I had 100 something impressions, in Campaign Name there were a few crossed out offers which people had clicked on, these were the Premium Offers they are showing and converting but not paying.

    Top top this off, I check my statistics now and magically the impressions have decreased to 70 odd and NO premium campaign offers are showing as clicked.

    What's the crack?

    Go to affpaying and make a review. Infact if you got any screen shots that would help.

    So far you have proved jack shit. You need some kind of proof braaaaaaaaa.

    Just promote offers from decent network(s) and you a) won't have issues like this; b) get much higher payouts than you'd ever get from CPA Lead.

    Well its happened again today, I took a screen so see if my impressions drop again and see it they make my clicks to these premium offers invisible again.

    I can't make a review until I get answers...

    Lol I just checked these lined out offers as one says 1 click and 1 leads 0 payout.

    I click and it says...

    This survey is currently unavailable for your account. Typically this is because we received a complaint from an advertiser that your leads were of lower quality than the average publisher, and we were asked to remove you from the list.

    Yer okay than! 1 click 1 lead...Sure the fucking advertiser is complaining already!!! They chat bears...

    Another 2 clicks 0 leads, yer the advertiser doesn't like your 2 clicks. They were low quality ha!

    Assuming you're referring to CLP as it's in my signature, I was in no way trying to sell you.

    In fact, when you're just starting out it can make perfect sense to use the content lockers provided by aff networks, just not cpa lead. There's a bunch of affiliate networks out there that have their own (free) lockers, such as adscend, adwork, blam, etc. And ALL of them are much better than cpa lead.

    I know you wasn't, I was already sold...

    Adscend are too strict in regards to what your locking so I though I would just use CPA Lead. Its not for money, more stats I definitely won't be reaching payout.

    Send 1,000 page views, see how many impressions I get, clicks, conversions etc to see if its a valid method to be worth investing in.

    Shaving is very common in CPA industry if your traffic quality does not meet requirement from the advertiser. You can try other content locker CPA network provided above. I would suggest you'd work with your AM more closely to understand the advertisers' requirement etc.

    They was very good some time ago, make a lot of money with then, but after then recent changes, replaced AM's, removed the chat, etc. I've leaved that boat...

    shaving is common in cpa industry the good side about them is they truly pays on time and sometimes ahead of time..and i knew other publisher from other networks need to contact their AMs before they got paid considering they reached the required payout it should be "auto" you work for that money then you deserve to pay on time without hassle..;)
