    Hey guys,

    I have a website where I sell service. From there, people are able to buy the service, and they are then redirected to paypal to make the payment.

    I have an adword campaign and a facebook ads campaign to drive traffic to my website and both are currently working.

    I have targeted a lot of country on my fb ads, cause my service can be sold world wide.
    I was wondering why a lot of my fb ads traffic was coming from Indonesia. Are those visitors real ?
    Indonesia is one of my selected country in my ads cause I know that a lot of people from there like this kind of service, but I don't fell that those visitors are legit for some reason.

    My second question.
    When people click the "Buy Button" on my website, Informations are saved in my DB and then the user are sent to paypal.
    At the moment I have 34 Informations saved into my DB (so 34 intention of buying), and only 1 made the payment on paypal.
    Some people tried to add their link 2 times, but still haven't got any payment.

    The paypal system is supposed to work cause at first place, I did make it work with paypal sandbox, then change the link for live version, after that ive tried to order with a credit card (cause I can't send money to my own paypal account), and Iive also asked someone I know to make a test payment, and it also worked.
    I was wondering if there was any kind of limitation from other country or other restriction so they can't pay me ?
    or it's only that people are curious when they click the buy button, and they just close the page once done.


    Thanks for any help !

    Ive also added more information to my DB.É
    Most of them comes from indonesia, they are on an android with the default device.
    But they are inputing a right "url" when they want to get the service

    Is Facebook sending fake traffic trough ads ?

    I've tested Facebook Ads extensively and the best campaigns I could come up with were pretty much break-even.

    Indonesian traffic is going to be extremely hard to convert if your service costs more than a couple bucks.
    Think about it -- it's a pretty poor country.

    Thanks for letting me know, the cheapest service is 5$.

    Ive actually removed Indonesia from my FB ads, and since then I don't have any visits on my website.
    I guess there is something wrong somewhere that I need to fix with my ads
