    Hi all ,

    I like to re-iterate what was done for this offer :

    all i did was send traffic to the offer -> conversions took place -> I scaled up ( using different traffic sources) some of the conversions in

    fact were traffic sources that your were sharing in facebook/ forum

    some forumers here are posting that I may have used underhanded means or broken the advertisers TOS .

    I need to emphasize that I followed all the advertisers TOS / and did not do anything unethical to get the conversions.

    all i did was send traffic to the offer -> conversions took place -> I scaled up -> got more conversions -> scaled further up.

    I will be frank , even if there was a way to scam / cheat the advertiser/ network I would not do it becos

    1. It not ethical to my personal self .I dont think its right to cheat others
    2. I dont want to get banned, I know PF is a good network and I want work long term with them.
    3. I dont know how to do it lol

    some people may not believe my words but this is what I have to say for myself .

    This is the sad truth. Most of CPA offers are pure scam, so IM are unfair too :(. From my point of view, almost only ethical CPA are adult cams/adult paysites, because buyer will get exactly what he want and pay.

    So u mean that
    I know but i did read alot about peerfly and their good reviews etc, thats why i didnt withdraw my earnings earlier. I felt with PF I was in good hands and they will take care of their affiliates

    i strongly agree with this. not becos my earnings were reversed but if an affiliate works hard for an offer , then they trust that the network will pay them .
    just hope that all affiliates who work hard honestly get paid for their earnings.

    It's not the network.

    It's the advertiser.

    Always has been the advertiser as the network is nothing more than a pass through.

    I guess it is a trial offer of nutra cause you mentioned rebill. Is the rebill rate too low?

    Were the leads 100% compliant with the advertiser's offer? If so then you are due payment indeed.

    I've actually had a similar situation with PF. I found an offer and traffic source that was generating a ridiculous amount of leads every hour, cheap.

    Before scaling to xx,xxx/day which would've been my largest campaign, I reached out and asked for a quality check. They got back to me a few days later saying the traffic did not back out for the advertiser.

    I'm guessing because it was only $700 or so, they paid me out without question.

    Later on, I found out that the advertiser did not pay out on non-converting traffic on any network, so PF took the loss and still paid out.

    I never had a chance to send real volume with them but they were always one of my favorite networks.

    Usually publishers reverse all your earnings only when they notice any bot is being used.If the leads are generated using similar IP address or a series of IP address they consider it as not real leads.This is pretty common but I am not sure on your method for leads.But do check with the affiliate manager on the Valid Reason.

    Take note that leads can also be reversed if they are not profitable for the advertiser. The advertiser can choose not to pay and screw the network. Without payment, the network can only reverse your leads since they were not paid in the first place.

    You were very lucky. Not all of us are so lucky. Usually during the traffic quality check, the advertiser will claim that they are all good to the network. And then the network will ask you to scale. Once you start to scale, this is where shit usually happens.

    This is why I changed my style to selling t-shirts! Then I came across Viralstyle.com and I realized same thing happens in that part of the internet.

    But let me just say that if you have an account with them and can prove that there were conversions on your traffic

    Wow! What network was it? But let me just say that if you have an account with them and can prove that there were conversions on your traffic for what they're not paying (which is very hard to do BTW) I would talk with your AM and have him send a conversion report from the Vendor

    I agree with you.Its better to choose top affiliate companies where advertisers won't cheat.But Its not that easy to get approved.

    A bit off topic, but after reading every-single-reply on this thread for 8 pages just to find the answer for #WhatsTheNetwork, I learned so much about how to trigger curiosity, drive people crazy, and raise the engagement lol. What a lesson to learn, OP!
