    Found a new way to monetize some leads with biz-opps CPA offer but my epc is way up to like 40%! Ouch. I earned a grand today but the advertiser is going to be like "wtf" any ideas on how to send some legit traffic over with legit referrer? I am open to any suggestions.

    buy junk traffic and throw at it, but if its converting on the backend i dont see why having a high % is bad

    it's probably too late to do anything after the fact.
    like the other guy said, the advertiser will be ok with high conversion rates as long as the leads convert on the back-end.
    if not, you're kinda fucked.

    When you say "convert on the backend" do you mean the person actually signs up? The pixel fires after the customer enters the credit card info and gets charged shipping on their "marketing kit" so I don't get paid unless they convert anyways.

    Can you recommend a good source of "junk traffic" or PPV traffic?

    Just check out the marketplace here. You can get 10,000 visitors for $5 I think.

    If its a CPS who cares what the % is.. you made them money and you get money as long as its not credit card fraud.

    If your traffic is legit, chill out and ask for an increase in payout.
    But I doubt that your traffic is legit so...
    If its a trial offer, converting on the backend would mean for the customers to continue the trial.
    If the customers pays for the whole thing then you probably have nothing to worry about.

    What he means is that if the guy who signed up at your cpa offer actually goes on and maybe something from the advertiser!

    I am assuming the "marketing kit" is a free trial. After the trial ends the customer gets billed.

    In your case I am thinking that they wont find out if your leads convert for quite a while maybe a week, maybe a month...

    Make sure you get paid ASAP aswell as throwing junk traffic at the offer but I am sure the aff manager will see that the offer was converting really high today and then with the junk traffic the offer will be converting really low tomorrow...

    Ok, thanks for all of the info. One last thing - my traffic actually pays $3 to get started and then they get billed in 7 days if they stick. My traffic is CL traffic, but everyone that signs up knows the terms clearly, so I would say that although my traffic isn't technically "legit" it's probably higher quality than they usually get

    ^^^ OK that should better for your long term earnings and you will be allowed to continue to promote the offer.

    But some or a lot may say to themselves "wtf? This website wants my credit card details!?" and then not sign up for your offer
