    I've got a CPA offers that tracks based on IP addresses and not cookies.

    When you go to my affiliate link (from the publisher), it reroutes to the landing page. On there, it has his phone number and other products that could cause a distraction to buyers. When you are ready to click Buy, it takes you to the sales form. The sales form does not include a tag for affiliates. The software being used is InfusionSoft.

    I want to create my own landing page and only have one single product on the page.

    My thought was to create my landing page and build a 1px x 1px iframe that loads my affiliate link. This will cause the affiliate software to capture the IP address and give me the commission. Once someone is ready to buy, they click on the Buy button which takes them to the same sales form as above.

    Based on the stats, the hits for the iframe method is working, but conversions and sales are down.

    When I was using the original sales link in all email, conversions were around 10%. This was tested with several different groups and it stayed around 8.9 - 10%. Pretty strong.

    Once I changed things and started using the iframe, the hits remained high, but the conversions went down to 3-5%. It's the same group, just different email addresses.

    I will also add that the audience is highly targeted and the product I am promoting is required by the govt for this group. There are no others online that sell it.

    Thanks for your help and suggestions.
