    I think I am being shaved! or trimmed.... or.... something!.... and not in a good way! lol. I have been promoting a certain CPA and I have noticed that my profits have dropped DRASTICALLY! Same method. Same traffic. Everything is the same but the PROFIT! Should I say something to the person that I am promoting? Should I do a test with a new similar CPA offer. Ugh.... I was doing quite well for a month. Now I am putting in more work and making WAYYYYYYYYYY less. Opinions? Suggestions? Alternatives? Thanks in advance......

    You aren't really giving us any information to give you an honest answer. Split testing with another CPA might help, so might talking to your AM.

    Quite possible the traffic you provide is low quality. Think about it.

    It's best to have a mix of two or three sponsors to compare. Then you can ask failing sponsor why you are doing so bad with him compared to others. Usually, it will lead to moderation of your shaving ratio. If you have no competitors, you have no leverage and he will get away with any sort of bullshit.

    You can always make test purchase to see if you are cheated.
