    Is this allowed on the CPA networks.

    I can e.g. pay someone $1 for a $3 lead.

    Or will they ban me ?

    It is allowed only for INCENTIVE offers. They mention that in the offer description. If it doesn't mention it allows INCENTIVES then you can't do it.. well.. shouldn't ;)

    I've purchased "guaranteed signups" from a service provider as an experiment. I did a test spend for 20 signups to see if it was viable tactic upon which to expand, so it was a small spend. I got 1 signup ... ONE.

    Hmph.

    I figure either 1 of 2 scenarios occurred in this case:

    1) The service provider either lied to me about the delivery, or didn't really keep track, or
    2) The CPA network didn't like the signups and disqualified/scrubbed 19 out of the 20 that were supposedly delivered.

    I suspect #2 is the most likely scenario.

    I've seen those guys on DP hiring out for signups to offers. That tactic is a bit too "high-touch" and convoluted for me at present. Also, I'm concerned about delivering poor traffic over a period of time, which might get my network account penalized or banned.

    In any case, that's my limited experience with paying for leads to CPA network advertisers, for what little it's worth.

    Best,
    >s

    Edit: Oh, and in this case I did promote only incentive-allowable offers with very high payouts -- so the small spend was covered by the single, measly signup I did get. Experiment conducted and lesson learnt, so no real harm done.

    You have to sign up for some affiliate programs(azoogle, maxbounty, etc.) and do some research.
    You'll find that most incentive offers require a sale, credit card number or something similar. But if you dig, you can find some that don't.

    I've had some success with paying for people to fill out cpa offers. I only did it because I had a connect that paid me within 24 hours. So no risk on my end.

    that is exactly what treasuretrooper does, these site payout a lot and earn even more in 'forfeited' earnings below the payout. I'm curious what guarenteed signup service you used?
