    Hi, can anyone tell me which CPA network is the one that lets you track which visitor does what.

    Like, I would be able to track that "A" clicked the link and finished it and "B" clicked the link but never finished it. Thanks.

    Most now offer a pingback/API where you can do this, it requires scripting on your site to check for completion though. AZ00gle and Never3lue both offer this I know

    Many networks will also offer you the ability to specify additional data on the link and then report back on that data you provided. This is called sub-ID reporting.

    Nearly all networks have SID tracking. It's standard for any directtrack network and most of the non-DT's have it too. They may call it 'optional info'. On DT networks you usually can just append the Sub-ID to the end of your URL. Others may want you to add a parameter like ?sid= or &sid= to the end of the URL before your tracking info. So if you want to track by user then assuming they have an account on your site you could just use PHP to dynamically create the links with their login or whatever appended to the URL. If they are not authenticated users then you might be able to append their IP address instead, however I don't know if you can use the '.' character as an SID.

    Hope this helps.
