    Hey everyone, hopefully this is the best section to post in for this kind of question.

    I've been googling for a couple days trying to find out if anyone offers something like this, with no conclusive answers. :smash:

    The Goal
    What I'm looking for are any networks that allow you to promote CPA offers, incentivized, as a sort of cashless alternative to mobile app In-App-Payments. So basically "Fill out this offer to recieve 100 Jewels [in-game currency]".

    Hack-y Solution
    Ultimately I guess it's possible to use regular CPA offers, have them open up in a WebView, and use the tracking pixel\postback "OnOfferComplete" to signal crediting the user's account with in-game currency... however I was wondering if there are any networks that offer a more integrated solution, specifically to do something like this without any hacks\sketchy behaviour.

    Why it's Useful
    As we all know, the easier and quicker a user can complete and offer and receive their reward, the more likely they will perform the action (and the more likely they will repeat this in the future).

    With mobile apps being increasingly difficult to sell for even $0.99 these days (now that users are accustomed to F2P), this type of thing might be a good hybrid solution between in-app advertising and in-app purchases.

    I think I've outlined the idea enough to give you guys an understanding of what I'm looking for.

    All input is appreciated :top: Thanks!

    You have the potential to be penalized for something like this, right?

    I'd imagine if you're doing this with non-incentivizable offers, then definitely. Even with incent offers from a regular network, it may not be allowed (best to ask AM).

    With blanking or faking referring pages, as well as sending non-converting traffic to the offer page (to keep conversion rate from being too high\suspicious), it is probably possible to pull of successfully though (at least for a while).

    Hence why I was trying to find out if anyone knew of networks that specifically allow this, or even better, networks that specialize and cater to this. Making it all legit.

    I don't currently have Skype, and unfortunately my mobile projects I've just had to put on hold now because of some crud that came up in my life. But I'll definitely grab Skype and give you a shout sometime in the future once I'm back on track.

    BTW, were you implying that the network in your sig has such functionality, by any chance?
