    ok i just started fling, and so far i made 70$ today and i have 22 free sign ups. I notice they don't pay for these though. but it says "* Free joins are potential paid joins" What does this mean exactly? If they decide to stick around? Will they get email. I would like to know how it works

    Also is fling.com a good choice for dating sites? Anyone recommend any other good ones I can experiment on.

    fling has told my my traffic is not backing out in 3 differnet affiliate accounts i have through affiliate networks fast.. SO are quick to fuck you. Use a real free sign up like amatuer match...


    They also pay double for sign up.... Hope this helps.

    It means they need to make money in order to stay in business and if your free signups are just joes without a credit card you will not get paid.
    Getting paid for "free" signups is just a way to lure the affiliate marketeer into promoting their offer and making it known/spreading the word. I still dont understand why people are so naive to believe free signups = bank day...Your free signups NEEDS to convert into 'PAID' members before you'll see any light of a check. That being said, you're better off promoting PAID signups instead of FREE signups --- tested all methods and PAID signups will be more beneficial to promote than FREE signups.

    Good luck

    yeah I understand that, but the thing is I'm not spamming free signups. I am doing a tour page. And I'll get free sign ups + paid sign ups. Which confuses me. Where do they pick and where is the deciding factor if I get paid or if they're free sign ups?

    They ALWAYS signup as FREE members first. Then for extra sh*t they get lured to pull out their CC. Since they signed up VIA -your- affiliate ID the siteowners will know that you've been pulling paid members to the site.

    And who pays is really up to ones that go to your link.

    I don't know how to explain it. If you run a business you obviously won't pay for just "free" people....

    Exactly. Nothing is ever really free. They lure you in with a free sign-up and then all the goodies cost you an arm and leg. Everyone needs a way to make money... This is their way!
