    Hello guys i have a question and i need a clear answer :) So as you know many networks CPA, CPI gives you some money (0.40$ 0.50$ ) for every time someones install an app from your content locker. I want to know why they really pay you 0.40$+ for a download, i mean.. how is the profit from their side? if you have let's say 1000 conversions of 0.40$ per install you will make 400$ and they get only 1000 downloads. how they profit from that? they can get access to your phone? Can someone give me a light?

    most of that applications offer in-app purchases so they are in they will be in win-win position;
    Some of them just need authority (having tons of installs), etc;
    There are various reasons

    I'm assuming their apps either have In-App purchases or PPC ads. Either way, it's like their paying an advertising cost to get there app out there which has the potential to return to them revenue.

    no they cant open camera. they redirect you from 2-3 domains before landing on install page. but they want clear installs. ihave some apps in app market and use some networks for incentive installs. if i get average cost of 0.3$ let say, i am earning 0.1 or 0.2 from each new user from ads. and my app installs get increased so it get ranked high in app store. cheap installs + better rankings that's it.

    i tried a few of those and all of them have a okay payout. The problem is that there are never enough ads/apps to view so you can never get the right amount of coins for a actual payout. so that sucks, kinda scam. You just generated money for them.......
