    I have been searching for any info on this but have not been successful to find any.
    The question is about making money with downloads from either of them. So far I have not seen any download at all. I have downloaded files from both of them but without seeing anything in the stats. Maybe I need to change the ip. I have not tried that yet. A friend of mine downloaded the file but it didn't help.
    I suspect the files must be over one megabyte and / or that I need a real link instead of just the url to the file. I have not tried that yet.
    Can anyone confirm this?

    Thanks for the reply HoNeYBiRD
    Yes I suspected this but it is weird that they don't even register a download. I mean I would like to see that people have downloaded a file even if the size is less than 1 mb.

    if you really want to test them, then do it with a file which is bigger than 1MB and use a proxy/friend

    and read this very forum, you can find quite a few threads which deals with pay per download sites
    if i can remember well, i read somewhere here from multiple users that fileserve likes to ban their affiliates and forfeit their earnings before payday with no reason given

    Rar/Zip the file. Add a 5MB+ size picture, maybe a stock photo. Zip it up and upload it.


    Fileserve does not count accurately in regards to single files, but will count 'Daily Totals'. Filesonic can count all.
    FS and FSO both payout.
