    You guys make me laugh. Seriously. Of course they shave. All of them do. You can still make good money but you have to accept and figure into your numbers that 33% of your leads are going to go right out the window. Welcome to the real world :D

    what kind of offers? Maybe I could offer some insight. You know there's a lot of moving parts behind the scenes on an offer usually it's not as cut and dry as it seems. Let me know what vertical you're working and I could offer reasons why things might not convert as well some times of the month. Granted I know most affiliates only deal with the networks so their inclination is to think the network is shaving them. However most of the time it's something going on with th backend of the advertisers offers.

    A good simple example. Lets take a free trial rebill offer. Page can stay exactly the same but on the merchant account that does the credit card processing there is probably at least 5-6 fraud related settings that I know of. If an advertiser is starting out they might fly lose for a bit and don't turn a lot of those settings on. But then the rebills come in bad and they start scrubbing out more of what they consider "Fraud" based on things like *** matches, address matches, etc. Good strong traffic that rebills really well for them would cause them to never turn this stuff on. Again as mentioned in the past this is how the fraud and scammy shit hurts your other fellow affiliates doing the right thing.

    Just my 3 cents

    Success,
