    I am currently promoting one of their top converting offers via facebook ads.

    However, facebook shows 3 clicks to website while the dashboard on Peerfly only shows one. As I have to pay PER CLICK this is no good at all.

    Anyone has similiar experiences?

    Could be it's updating slower, I never done fb ads but maybe same person clicked 3 times?
    Also I suggest using tracker, prosper202 is free, cpvlab or voluum for paid.
    Could also be that 2 persons clicked on facebook, but never arrived on offer, closed it before loaded or instantly closed when clicked ad.
    It's hard to say with 3 clicks :p

    I think Facebook is scaming that way, they just find a "legal" reason to display those clicks, engagement, interaction and stuff like that, in a way that is not necessary true, example like the guy above said, they might have clicked the link but they never arrived to the page and that click is counted by facebook...

    Really not sure whom to blame here, Peerfly or Facebook. It says now 5 clicks on fb, on peerfly still one. So either fb charges me for clicks that haven't been there or Peerfly is shaving.

    Also, Peerfly says this offer has a conversion rate of 50%. Based on what?
    So from those 4 clicks 2 should have already converted *lol*

    5 clicks in nowhere near enough to make any assumptions. But have you thought the clicks might be coming from countries that the Peerfly offer doesn't allow. When you get to 100 clicks then you can start comparing.

    Well, not sure. I am only targeting the country they allow, so normally the ad shouldn't even be displayed outside this country. I think they also would allow other countries because if you visit the landing page from a different country you will get a different offer. I am spending now 0.15 per click, so I hope I do not have to waste $15 in order to find out who is cheating me.

    Also I am not sure where they base their conversion rates on. If they say this offer converts at 50%, this means from 2 clicks one converts. Which is not the case, at least on facebook. They should be more precise WHERE this 50% CR is going to happen

    anatho, that 50% CR is how much it converted for others. Using paid traffic without a TRACKER is stupid, you must get one if you are serious (look my previous post for suggestions)

    That's easy to find out. Put tracking on your own site and send traffic to it via facebook ads. If facebook stats show more clicks than your own stats, it's facebook. If not, it's peerfly.

    The 50% is just the average cr for all affiliates promoting that offer on peerfly. It's not some guarantee and it has nothing to do with what's going to happen.

    well fb is a multibillion dollar biz. they've screwed up before but they arent likely trying to steal your one or two clicks. just not worth it to a public company worth so much. Not sayin peerfly is some dinky biz. I use peerfly but theyre more likely to maybe snag a click here and there. But honestly you need to wait a bit longer. not cause 5 clicks isnt enough. missing is missing even if its just 1 but give it time to update. let it pass a day then pause and see your totals. they should be very close. also make sure its apples to apples so dont compare raw clicks to unique.

    Really OP, listen to this. Without having a tracker, you have no information at all to help you.

    Using prosper202 now.

    But I stopped this ad. Besides of problems with clicks on fb/pf being different, I also noticed that this does not convert at all. My CPC is far too high, if it would convert then it would be ok, but it does not. This 50% CR is just ridiculous. I think I won't use peerfly again because never any of their offers converted for me.
