    I've heard MaxBounty shave a lot on email submits. Do companies shave on the bigger offers though like Acai Berry Trials or just email submits because there's a lot of fraud with those?

    I have Copeac and Neverblue accounts and although they are less likely to shave my leads i haven't got any payments from them yet and so would have to wait far longer for my money than i would with MaxBounty.

    Stick with MaxBounty or change???

    I think you should be fine promoting trials on MB.

    exactly.
    they shave 0% when you start out and then they start shaving bigtime.

    for free trials hydra is the best assuming you are doing whitehat.

    Iam sure all CPA networks do some kind of shaving... If you ever downloaded anything from here, then you are shaving sales from the creator...

    If you think they are, move on to the next.... Try and become real cool with your AM...

    I promote Acai Berry with MaxBounty myself and I must say the conversation rate is pretty ok, so that my EPC is about 3 USD :)

    MaxBounty IMO is scandalous. I have been paid by them like 3 or 4 times, but as I drove more volume to them, the conversions would decrease and decrease. Once they took 100% of my earnings from a campaign I was running...they found out I was using CL...and it was almost $1,000 they took from me. After that, no more MaxBurnme for me

    you got to watch it like a hawk otherwise your traffic goes to waste

    its almost better to promote only the new offers

    once you get stuck in the old your going nowhere with them

    my 2 cents

    Personally I have been running a medium volume campaign with them and since I am running a blackhat method i know exactly how many leads i should get, i havent experienced massive shaving usually around 10% but that could just be a crappy tracking system that lost some of the leads.

    Sorry to hear your experience with the sucked BigHustlah.

    I've noticed this with all networks/campaigns. I start off with a good conversion ratio and then sooner or later the conversions drop significantly. I think it's probably the advertiser that's shaving not the actual network.

    10% shaving is not even the worst I experienced with them. I find it better to have multiple smaller campaigns then one big one. They shave more once you get more traffic.

    Not sure what happened here, but I believe maxbounty (or probably the advertiser) just shaved 100% of my leads with "Acai Burn" which is now "acai slim". I don't want to get into the numbers, but I sent a good chunk of leads in, and 0 came out... should have generated about $1000... The clicks all show, but 0 conversions, BULLSHIT! I'm not even sure I want to do acai anymore... The whole acai thing is a big scam, and now they are scamming the mouths that feed them! O'm moving on from acai

    I have found out for myself that Maxbounty shaves alot on e-mail submits. In the beginning I promoted some e-mail submits and I got credited for ALL of them. Now when I tried some new methods out (including GodCPA) it only showed a bunch of clicks and NO credited conversions.

    That's the moment when I said goodbye to MB.

    The more traffic you drive the more they shave. A couple of days back I rang up my AM and instead of saying hello I said what the fuck are you playing at. I was sending traffic to an offer and the more I sent the less conversions I got, until they went down to zero. I asked them straight if conversions were invertionally proptional to traffic or if they were opening max bounty barbers. You know what the fuckwit said to me.. Other affiliates are sending thousands of visitors before they are getting sales from this offer. What sort of fuckwit AM tells an affiliate that a product is converting at one in a thousand and is one of their good earning offers. Freaking idiot needs a lobotomy. My traffic is going elsewhere.

    Although maxbounty are dodgy sometimes. I can generally rely on the network EPC. So if an email submit is sitting on a 0.06 EPC. Then i know thats around about what ill get. No matter how targeted the traffic is (Or incentivised), the network EPC that maxbounty show is pretty much what i get everytime. I almost take their EPC as the "shaving" rate.
