    before I joined any network I was told that I should not say that I incentivise the traffic but I joined a few networks and while browsing the campaigns, I see this written "Incentives Allowed" for some offers..

    does that mean I can incentivisse the traffic and ask them to fill the offer and I can even pay them a cut ? OR give them a download or anything ? so that will not be a problem with the network ?

    sorry for a noob question, but was wondering what does that mean..

    cheers

    Have you ever been to a site trying to stream a movie or something like that but in order to watch it you have to fill out a CPA or wait 5 seconds.....thats what it is

    FYI the networks will try and shave alot more since conversions are typically lower.

    Hope that helps :p

    Should be fine with your AM as long as your not iFraming/using GODCPA, just ask your AM yourself, just to be on the safe-side. :)

    it means you can give them points or gifts for completing the offers.

    CPA means Cost per Action.
    BTW This has been written on CPA section.
    "CPA is an acronym for Cost per Action and refers to "ads" that are sold on the basis that money is only given when a certain action occurs because of the ad. A CPA ad could be one in which a publisher gets paid for people that click thru an ad and sign up for a newsletter or enter a contest or fill out a form for more information on a product. Many consider direct sales or Cost Per Sale ads, and CPC ads to also be a form of CPA. But CPA usually refers to being paid for leads, sign ups, and so on."

    If you spend your time reading the forum instead of asking these kinda questions, It will be more helpful for you as you'll be gathering much knowledge by reading.. Just an advise..
