    Hello,
    I have a peerfly account and have been using it for a few days now. It seems now, when a person completes an offers needs in order for it to convert, it does not and I get no money. I can assure you people are completing the tasks needed to make these offers convert, but peerfly isn't showing that it converts. I tried out an offer myself, filling it out, and doing everything needed for it to convert, and I get nothing. Is peerfly ripping me off?

    Some guy said: all those networks shave - some less and some more, just find one that is good for you.

    Yeah they shave but every network shaves so just try it a bit longer if you still see no conversions switch network

    CPA is a dying breed. You'd be better off joining CJ.com, SAS, LinkShare etc.. At least you'll be working for big brands and not a bunch of greedy ass clowns. Good luck to you!

    something similar is happening to me

    had 5 conversions one day and ever since then i've had 0.

    i hope that they aren't shaving.

    gonna have to chat with em

    edit: and the offer was converting at 50% then just stops cold turkey. something fishy is going on :confused:

    Every single one of those networks shaves, even ones where you have to sell a product to get paid. They're middlemen, it's just what they do.

    Stay away from PeerFly. They stole $1,000+ from me without giving me aby warning or without me breaking an advertiser terms. They canceled my account because the advertiser they didn't like a word I was using on my site. No warnings. It's not written anywhere on their terms that I cant use that term. Peerfly decided to close my account and steal my money. I have prove of the offer and their email if anyone wants to see it.

    It's an Algo, of course it can be gamed.

    Odds are they did not know you were doing blackhat and thus you caused them issues with the advertiser.

    Peerfly, like most CPA Networks, operate as a middleman and are serving at the pleasure of the advertiser. Should you send them unacceptable traffic, leads, etc using a method that is outside their accepted TOS, then they are going to look bad to the advertiser.

    When that happens they do not get paid from the advertiser and thus do not pay the guy sending bad traffic/leads.

    Now, if they are aware that you are doing BH methods and have expressed that your BH method is fine and then don't pay the story is different.

    I do a lot of business with them and I'd be real surprised if they "stole 20K" from you as opposed to didn't pay you as you were sending them traffic/leads from your BH ways.

    I constantly found clicks missing with them (i.e. clicks go thru my tracker but never show up in Peerfly statistics.) It never happens with any other network.

    I assumed they were either simply stealing the clicks or else their systems are all fucked-up.

    Either way, no way I'm sending them paid traffic & have them asshats make it vanish like a fart in the wind.

    And this is not bot traffic I'm talking about. It's real traffic from real people. Paid, whitehat traffic.

    When I asked where the missing clicks went, all I got was ignored.

    They could have at least told me the clicks are buried with Jimmy Hoffa or went down with Amelia Earhart's plane or something. LOL

    Hell, I'd settle for, "Your clicks were flying over the Bermuda Triangle, turned green and vanished." Anything.

    So you've never had this happen to you with Peerfly? :confused:
