Is it normal for $1 - $1.50 CPA offers to end asking for a CC?

    Question about COPEAC's low end incent offers. I've recently found out that even the $1 - $1.10 offers still end asking the person for their CC to pay for shipping and without doing this the end result was you don't get credited for the person doing the offer. Now I guess its possible the person doing the offer messed something up but can anyone shed light on this?

    A $1 program that requires a credit card makes it look like a poor converting offer. Offers that usually require a cc normally give you a higher payout to compensate for the risk, since most people do not want to pull out their cc. A good $1 offer would be one that asks for name and email, or at least that it has a small amount of fields to fill. This is easier on the work the user has to do, so if the landing page of the merchant is appealing it might convert well.

    Yes, I can understand that Paulo. Tested about 5 low end COPEAC incent offers and the final page on I think 3 or 4 out of those 5 was asking for CC details to pay for shipping. I'm wondering if something isn't being done properly or these offers just suck because I believe nothing is being credited.

    A few questions. There are different type of links for campaigns, such as content/email/html image etc. Would it matter if you used a html image in an email? I mean, would you not get credited for this? I can't see why it would happen, but just a thought.

    You can always ask your affiliate manager for that. Better safe than sorry. Ask him what are all the limits and restritions so both you and him can make money with commissions. They will tell you, it's their interest to have you making money.

    Just as a note, Clickboo*th has a bunch of worthless offers, those $1.25 email submits from USA survey are shit, the user needs to go there, put his email, then fill offers and other stuff then confirm and verify his information. These steps were shown on the landing page of one of the USA surveys I saw through a proxy, because being from outside the US, I can't see that page.

    And they're smart sobs, they have code to verify if the email you put there is valid or not. So typing fwrfwefwefewf@fwefefwe.com won't get you past the first page submit, lol.

    Since I can't see the page, I can imagine the the affiliate will only get a comission if the user comes to the page, submits his email, fills surveys and other offers (wtf?), and if he by any chance is still around, there is still a 3rd page submit where he needs to further "insert and verify information", which I can imagine will be X field submits with address, phone and stuff like that. Maybe even cc. All this for a risky $1.25.

    Clickboo*th has some good offers, but you need to apply to them and they're pretty strict on that. Better move on to another network.

    Ya, if you are able to convert an offer that requires a credit card... there are offers that will pay you $20+. Go after a bigger fish :)
