    In the last two payment periods I've seen my stats decreasing all of a suden I belive It's about a 40-59 USD loss or something like. The first time it happened didn't take it too seriour since I though it was some kind of bug or something (didn't recebe the payment for that period) today I checked my stats and I saw the same behaviour, not sure what is happening. I've just sent them a message regarding my situation.
    Have this happened to any of you?

    advertisers are always adjusting EPC depending on your traffic quality (it's not the CPA network who does this most of the times), but it's not even a really a serious decrease if it's per month, maybe your traffic doesn't convert too well, hence the drop

    Doesn't wire transfer cost 50 bucks? If that's how you get paid then that might be why.They never shaved when I was going to though them.

    it depends on your total earnings, but that still doesn't sound like a too significant amount
    you can try switching offers and/or networks if you're not satisfied and the tendency stays like this, more than likely the advertiser for that particular offer doesn't like your traffic much, maybe they will even ask the network to restrict you from promoting their offer(s) in the future, if the quality off your traffic is really low

    I don't know if CR owns the sites it is promoting but... I have heard good things about CrakRevenue, I believe I have an account with them, so I am in no way talking shit or anything, but I have loads of adult experience and I'm just telling the truth here...

    ALL of these CPA companies have the ability to shave you, and for various reasons (some actually legit, some not) they usually will "adjust" things at one point or another. When you get tired of that shit, you either stop promoting with that company, or you learn to go direct.

    Honebird is a knowledgable old-timer and what they say is also true, it could be the advertiser that is unhappy with your traffic. In my experience, in adult traffic, if your shit isn't converting (ESPECIALLY if you are using those *special* type methods to drive traffic) if your shit isn't converting they will just cut you off, because it's only gonna get worse for them if your traffic gets worse, and they can't afford massive chargebacks.

    I highly advise finding an adult site you can promote that runs their own affiliate program. These usually exist but can be hard to find. If you can't find your preferred site's affiliate program, I strongly suggest finding one you feel you can work with and adapting your methods to it.

    I don't know how much CR pays but adult sales can pay you up to $70 per sale, and I wouldn't push traffic for a place that's paying me less than $40 per. If you work with a direct site and your traffic isn't working, they will let you know directly instead of lowering your payout etc.

    If you are getting your traffic from social media profiles have you run out of people to sign up?

    If you have 10k followers and get 100-300 signups then you might need to expand more because if you don't your following will get dried up until you promote something fresh and mix in different offers.

    Once you send mass traffic your stats start to change because you are pushing more volume.

    I'd suggest you track the amount of hits you get on a third party service and compare them with the stats over at your network.

    Even changing offers for a week would prove whether your theory is correct or meaningless.

    Unfortunately this is something we have to deal with when it comes to adult affiliate networks, most if not all of them shave. I am not calling out any network in particular but I thought I had finally found one that I could trust but now I'm starting to think otherwise. For the record though crakrevenue seems pretty legit!

    First off, thank you for the kind words at the end of your post, but let me start off by saying that CrakRevenue does not shave.

    We can't stress this enough. We've said it before and we'll say it again: As a leading CPA network, shaving is not in our business plan and it never will be. It's simply not a viable one. We want to do more and more business... not the other way around.

    We were just voted one of the best CPA networks of 2014 by Performance Marketing Insider. We would not be at the top of that list if we shaved ;)

    Statistically speaking, you'll see this with every reputable network ? there's always some unsubstantiated claim made by someone who might not be making as much money as they had hoped.

    Juan, I welcome you to reach out to me via PM/email/Skype if you'd like to discuss your campaigns or see how we can improve them.

    Google is also marked as best search engine company and they are killing their users.

    One day I have 1000-2000 CR offer clicks and 40-70 of them are converted, and some days I get like 3000 clicks (legit clicks) and there is no sales. (PPL)

    I think this is really grey company.
