    Man dealing with cpa networks can be some unprofessional as shit. I don't see how this is goign to turn into a long term business (meaning 5 years or more). When I say that the main thing I look at is do they pay you on time EVERYTIME. Mean think about it most all of us work a 9 to 5. If yo uknow you get paid every Thursday but this week your job didnt pay you til Monday. Would you go for that? Come on man.

    I won't name the network but this network when looking at my payment detials said I was paid on 4-2. I still havebt gotten the check yet. So I emailed them monday asking for status and they JUST got back to me yesterday saying payment went out today sorry for the delay. WTF? That's it? Sorry for the delay. The shit is wack man. YOur telling me once the 10th came and you knew they you haven't paid me yet you couldnt send out a simple email saying payment would be late. At least do that. Very unprofessional.

    I had another network (this I have never seen before) send me different checks for diffeerent leads then break a chekc up into 2 payments for the same leads. Like I had say 5 leads for Cash4gold (not the offer just a example) I got one check saturday for 2 leads then another monday for the other 3.

    Man networks get it right if you say you send payment on the 1st send it on the first not the 2nd not the 3rd on the first. Def dont send it on the 10th.

    Below are the networks that have paid me ontime just as they stated not a day late:

    Neverblue Ads
    Max Bounty
    Hydra (I miss them, lol)

    If that's the worst you have to deal with when dealing with CPA companies then you're living the good life and should buy lottery tickets every day.

    But seriously, there's a LOOOOoooooOOOOTtttTTT of shadiness in the CPA world from all angles: Networks, Advertisers, and *gasp* affiliates.

    Always remember to CYA (cover your ass) and stay two steps ahead of everyone - EVERYONE - else and you'll be ok. Pretty soon, a payment coming a week late won't seem like that big a deal.

    No trust me I know I am posting on a BlackHat Forum so trust me I understand but from a pure professional standup. I am sure there are people who rely on these checks being on time to pay there bills. My sole point is if your going to say check go out on the frist then damn well make checks go out on the first. And if there is a delay then notify all who are affected.

    From a pure professional standup.... it is true, they aren't reliable and certainly shouldn't be your primary biz source of income.

    You can do cpa marketing for a long term, even years if you want and they can still bring you good money... but that doesn't make them a solid stable biz.

    As you have mentioned above, they lack the least professionalism requirements.

    P.S. Hydra once stated that they have paid me, but they haven't. When I contacted them, they said sorry, since I chose to receive payment via paypal and since paypal is done manually, they forgot about that. WTF?

    That was one of the funniest replies I've ever got. They sent the money the next day anyway, but point is, if it is stated as "paid" in the backoffice, I expect to see money in my paypal acccount or check in my mail box. But other than that, they have been good to me.

    Has anyone of you experienced "in your face" shaving? that is shaving big amounts of cash after weeks of them being displayed in your stats.... not only that but manipulating your traffic stats to convey you sent zero traffic to the offer, and claiming it is the true stats and there isn't any system glitch? lol. That is another network, but I won't mention it.

    To the OP, I would certainly have to agree. I actually had one company pick up the phone and the guy goes "What's up Dude?"

    I had never talked to this kid before in my life, yet he is my AM.

    Whatever though hah
