    I thought about promoting CPA through websites like "Fill out these offers and get 10 dollars in your Paypal account". Is this allowed?

    Okay, so if I find a way to hide my traffic source from my CPA network, am I still fucked because of the too high conversion rates? Will my affiliate manager force me to reveal my traffic source or else I'm banned?

    It is allowed only where it is clearly stated that incentivized traffic is allowed IMO

    Yeah, you'll be screwed unless they allow incentivized traffic. Some networks specialize in that though. But the payouts are typically much lower. I would suggest trying something else... incentivizing with cash gets to be a pretty slim margin game. Most people who run incentivized offers are doing it with content not cash.

    There are some offers which allows hard incentive such as cash but you are saying like get $10 for filling out a survey which I am sure that you will not give. So you are making people fool which will not be tolerated by any CPA network. As far as your 2nd question is concerned about hiding the traffic sources, then your AM will eventually ask about your traffic source if you are sending too much volume.

    Why you want to do this??? Play safe.

    I wouldn't fool anyone, I'd say here fill out these offers/surveys (like 4-5) it takes only 10 minutes and get 10 dollars/free pdf/whatever.

    How much is 'too much' volume? Also if my conversion rates weren't that huge, would the AM still raise suspicion?

    And why I want to do this is probably obvious, it's easy money :p

    Nothing is easy in IM. If you do find some magic cash~shitting loophole I gurantee it will not last long. Don't ignore the sound advice above. Incentive CPA offers pay garbage, and cash incentivized offers pay even less. The only exploit i've ever seen work with this method is hiring mturk, microworkers, etc; and that method died a long time ago.

    So is there no way around this? Will my AM always want to know my traffic source? I know this is blackhat if I want to use e.g. Peerfly for this, but this is BHW so I thought I can ask :(

    If you wanna do it then you'll also need a different (legit) traffic source that will bring your cr down. But they'll probably find out sooner or later anyway.

    Your submit to offer has to be beneficial both for CPA network and the advertiser who pays the CPA owners. Now think if your traffic can be beneficial for them and you.

    1. If advertiser gets conversions on the offer he/she pays for the offer to be shown on the CPA network.

    2. If CPA network gets paid then you get paid.

    Simple as that, maybe somebody can finally lay out what is all about CPA networks cause I have a feeling lots of BHW users has no idea why they even exist and what is the their purpose.

    It's allowed if the network you get the offer from has specified that offer is INCENTIVE and points/cash incent is allowed

    No, it's fraud and is not allowed in any type of way.
