    When asked, everybody always say that you will earn more with CPA. I think it's the opposite, please try to convince me otherwise :D
    When you are on CPA network you can pick your offers, true, and in the end you can make more money hand-picking the offers.

    On PPD networks, though, you have A LOT of offers from many different networks and the best part: they are optimised already. You will have offers for almost every country. If you would use CPA you would have to manually add offers for every country in the world if your traffic is worldwide and it would take tons of time.

    For me, PPD has had much greater overall EPC and CR than CPA offers. Sure, the US traffic MIGHT convert better when handpicking CPA offers but let's say Hungarian traffic doesn't convert at all or I have not set up an offer for Romania witch has 10 visits/month. With PPD I would monetise that traffic also. It's always nice to see a $4 conversion from some unexpected country.

    What are your thoughts?

    PPD owners optimize offers, for their users. CPA users, will optimize offers for themselves.
    So you will get to keep that 20% (or even more) that PPD networks get from your leads if you use CPA.
    If you are making 5$/day, that would be 1$ (1$ means a lot to the one who makes 5$ per day), if you are making 500$/day that is 100$ lost.
    So in my opinion it is worth the trouble.

    PPD is like CPA except they set things up for you and take a portion of your money.

    There are only 196 countries in the world. Even if you don't take most of the cpa networks' own optimisation feature, you could just add offers manually for each country.

    But that's the thing. You choose 196 offers and then some of them expire, some convert horribly..so you have to constantly change them. If I am using non-wh traffic then I can't use the cpa networks own locker.

    PPD sites are just a middle man. They offer you all the same surveys and such that you can get by going straight to the CPA companies. I think that the general consensus is that CPA is the way to go for the real money, you just have to take some time to learn how to properly optimize for yourself. PPD sites is for lazier people. You may notice that all of the big players and earners work directly with the CPA companies

    What are you guys talking about CPA and PPD and both middle mans. PPD is the worse of the two though.


    CPA is better for earning more money with niche websites and web space

    PPD is better for the obvious reason of downloads.

    Someone in the weight loss niche would rather have a free trial ( CPA) then download some weight loss ebook ( PPD)

    PPD is sht earnings compared to CPA, but PPD converts more.

    They are very niche depended, you cant say which is better because different applications and niches are for both.
