    I have been doing CPA for a while, but I am just beginning to promote mobile CPA and CPI offers for the first time. One thing that's really frustrating for me is that it's difficult to test my offer links. I found some Google Play CPI offers in non-US geos that I want to promote, but I can't verify that the links actually go to the pages they say they go to. Is there any way I can test the links without buying an Android phone, putting a proxy on the phone from the same GEO as the offer, and opening the link on the phone? It feels really inefficient.

    What i do is the following
    -Use chrome
    -Download hola proxy extension. On this extension you can choose a country and use a free proxy for that.
    -Use chrome developer tools and hit the mobile icon. You can choose a device after that. Like iphone 6 plus or nexus 5. (Google that part)

    Good luck!

    Can you open a Google Play link on a computer? I am trying to test my offers using a process similar to what you described, but it always just goes to a blank web page.

    It doesn't get much easier than this. However, I use HMA VPN Pro so I can easily change IP to matching GEO to test offers.

    I have a browser plugin that lets me set my Device to an Android Nexus 5 phone, and my IP to Japan (I am promoting a Japanese offer). The offer is supposed to go to the Google Play store, but it just directs to a blank page for me. Does that mean my link is busted?

    I use browserstack to test my LP on multiple mobile devices but I find myself using opera mobile emulator these days.
