    I've had 432 TARGETED hits to offers and not a single conversion. I absolutely know I've had 2 because the confirmation emails were forwarded to me. Both were cc submits. Anyone else or am I the only one? I've heard of shaving and I know it's part of the cpa game, but I don't work for free.

    Basically it's not the network it's the advertiser who shaves. Try switching to some other offer and see the results.

    I agree with you. But before moving ahead i suggest you atleast try some other offers for 1-2 days. Rotate between 3-4 offers.

    trying a few now. I'll let you all know. Is anyone else being shaved like this? we're talking $60-$80. That's a lot of money to me.

    MaxSHAVE is notorious for this...do some research and you can get a good idea of their habits. I had them shave me over 80% about a year ago...kicked them to the curb real quick.

    Try different offers and see what happens...or get rid of them and go to a diff aff ntwrk.

    Good luck!

    Hmmm. Well, I'm not going to send them anymore traffic. lol. That's crazy 80%. I'm looking to make $1000 a week. Any suggestions for a decent aff network?

    I speak to my aff manager with Max Bounty quite a lot and I haven't noticed much shaving, but obviously a bit, all CPA network shave, Max Bounty has been the best for not shaving my traffic, but I'm still quite new to the whole CPA game.

    I'm new too, but I know I missed out on about $80 that I should have got today. That sucks. I'm going to contact my aff manager tomorrow to see what he has to say.

    I was starting to think that I was doing something wrong. I'm new at this and just started with MaxBounty my stats say I've had 308 in traffic and only 1 action :( I guess we need to find another CPA

    we may be. lol. but when i confirmed that 2 offers have been fulfilled and i didnt get paid, that pisses me off. I know that 2 out of 432 hits resulted in commission. that is only 1:216 which is downright disrespectful.

    I have yet to have a problem with Maxbounty, but i have big problems with Wotogepa. I send them both the same amount of traffic.....Maxbounty has conversions...wotogepa i have yet to have a single conversion....this is after sending them probably 500 clicks....where as 500 clicks to max has yielded me about a 8% conversion :)

    Max shaved me bad. I switched my offers to another CPA and noticed the conversion rate change overnight.

    It's going on 2 weeks for me with Maxbounty. Over 500 clicks and only 2 conversions. I'm switching to another network, gonna promote their products the same way and see how that goes.

    I have most of my test clicks convert with them..... haven't had enough traffic from real folks to say for sure, but every time I test an offer it converts....... unless it's for a country different than where I am....

    ok as of today I have 1400 clicks but only 6 actions I've made $9. I'm thankful but I'm reading and learning so much here in BHW that I'm convinced its more the "shaving" than it is my methods. I'm learning from the best after all, right?

    Thank you guys for all the help after seeing the $9 I'm inspired to increase that exponentially BHW is awesome if the cpas shave I just have to step it up and work harder lol
