    I am running the same a CPA offer on two networks using FB traffic.

    Peerfly is getting ZERO converts with the same FB ad

    And my other network is giving me 3-5 converts a day with the same Facebook traffic.

    Has anyone else experienced Peerfly shaving leads or what it might be...

    I just opened up my peerfly account so its fresh. Do you think they review traffic before crediting?

    Regards,

    Sheldon

    Probably yes. But I dont think peerfly shaves, the f#ckin advertisers in there shave, to get maximum profit.

    Never had a problem with Peerfly as they payout every time plus i never experienced any shaving what so ever. If your still unsure try another network and split test it.

    i love peerfly becoz they are just simply amazing with their cashflow. though i do incur some loss by cashing out immediately, it saved me in tough situations. Also their tracking seems stable. Never had a bad experience yet

    Most CPA networks dont allow classified ads...... try promoting a CB product through a classified ad.

    Here's the thing.
    Peerfly is really great with payout and payment etc etc. But yes, they do shave, I experienced that too.

    Because there were 2 different offers I was running with them with a 3-6% conversion rate...I found the owners of the offers and started running them direct... 20-50% conversion rates with the same traffic/lander.

    Although I will say this...their margins are kind of slim. Maybe the shaving is how they make up for it.

    Im attaching a screen shot from a direct offer...tell me when was the last time you ever seen conversions like this on ANY NETWORK??

    Jesus f!@#$@ing christ.

    F- These networks.

    I am honestly considering creating a 100% percent honest and publisher owned network.

    Stats like those will never be seen.

    Thanks for the share.

    Those are some great conversion rates. I'd be happy to look over your account and see what the issue is and why your traffic is not converting as well with us at PeerFly. I can say with 100% certainty that PeerFly does not shave so that is not the reason, but advertisers (especially email submit advertisers) do have metrics in place and if a publisher is not hitting those metrics you will see a decrease in your overall conversion rate.

    Let's look at this this way...


    • If PeerFly shaves your leads you stop your traffic and we lose money.
    • If an advertiser starts shaving your leads they regain money that they've already lost.

    An affiliate network makes money off every conversion you send. An advertiser loses money off every conversion you send UNLESS it backs out for them.

    Which seems more likely to shave?

    That being said, we try to work with the best advertisers in the industry and leverage our size/traffic to keep your conversion rates and profit high.

    We want you to succeed with us at PeerFly and that's not possible if you're not making money. Hit me up on Skype (LukePeerFly) so we can figure out the problem so we all make more money :)

    Never had any issues with peerfly, always had decent conversions and steady payouts

    But whether they shave or not, I cant say.
    I would assume most networks shave to decent degree ;-(

    I would be leaning towards what Luke said. I've never heard of Peerfly directly shaving anything. The advertisers they work with are a whole different story. That being said though, you're going to experience this anywhere. Having worked with 10 or 15 different companies I can tell you first hand you'll run into this at every company. I don't use them at the moment but I really would have nothing but good things to say about Peerfly. I actually clicked on this post because it caught my eye. They're good people over there and usually more than willing to help you out, so I'd hit up someone and maybe see if you can get some answers or figure something out.

    peerfly is also well know for banning publishers w/o warning before payouts (do a google search),you should find a reputable cpa co.,but a sucker is born every minute i guess

    Its the same old story. You ask your CPA network why they are shaving and they turn around and blame the advertiser. The whole thing is a fucken scam. Who do you believe?
