    So I just noticed this.

    A lot of people on here seem to like Peerfly, and I understand why to a certain extent. They have a nice UI, pay on time, have friendly support (Luke is pretty popular around these parts), etc.

    But check this out. I was looking at payouts for offers in my vertical and comparing them on different CPA networks. That's when I noticed Peerfly pays out ONLY HALF of what some networks are offering. They're literally keeping half of your commission for themselves! In this particular case, they pay out 57% of what I was receiving on a different network. I ended up connecting directly with the vendor and got a pay bump as a result; so now Peerfly's offer is only 49% of what I'm receiving! Of course they can't afford to offer the same as the vendor, since they've got to keep a cut to operate - but 49% is absurd!

    I contacted my affiliate manager and was offered a bump of $1. On an offer that pays >$80. At this point, I don't really think I'll be using Peerfly anymore, the foregone margins are just absurd. In another comparison, I noticed PointClickTrack offered significantly more than PeerFly, and that MaxBounty paid out more than both of them on the same offers. Keep this in mind if you find an offer that converts, because you might be able to get more money for the same efforts!

    To anyone looking to flame me, or say I'm promoting some CPA network or whatever, please just stop. These are objective findings that caused me to pivot, and become more successful as result; I'm just sharing that info in the hopes that maybe it'll help some of you guys make a couple extra bucks too.

    In any case, good luck! Let me know if you have any questions.

    Hey man this is nice to know... however, why is it in the "Yahoo & MSN" section!?

    Did you find that PeerFly was brokering offers from other networks or do you mean the actual vendor of the offer had its own affiliate program?

    That's why I always search for the offer first and go with those CPA network, which offer high payout.

    Peerfly has always been had lowest payout on a lot of offers. I don't understand why a lot of people talk highly about them. Probably it's marketing from their own team. Especially on Warrior Forum ;)

    Not everyone has access to tier 1 networks. Bigger fish takes bigger bites
