    Hey guys, I'm new to CPA and interested to know
    if you get the peoples info that used your CPA offer.

    For example, if my friend fills out all the correct info (not fake) in my cpa offer, is their a way for me to know he
    filled out that offer ?

    Just curious, because i hear of this guys offering free
    ipods or xbox if they fill out a few cpa offers...how can
    they found out if they really did filled out all correct info.

    Do they get an email saying they fill out these offers,
    and maybe they can send you a copy of that email for confirmation.

    If I understand what you are asking.... No, you do not get the person's info that filled out the offer. I guess you COULD track the person's IP address if you used something like prosper202 plus tracking pixels.

    Yes, most networks have a callback service which can be setup to call a script on your server any time you are credited with a lead. It won't give you any personal information about the lead, but generally if the lead fills everything out ok, you will get credited and a callback will be performed.

    As an example lets say a person with the ip address 4.2.2.4 filled out one of your offers (let's say offer #69), a callback can be generated to call something like
    Code:
    http://www.yousite.com/callback.php?offer=69&ip=4.2.2.4 
    
    Now it's up to you to do whatever you wish with that data (store it in a mysql db, send an email, ect...). You will need to lean some php most likely..

    What type of information get passed to your server (IP, ,offer id, sub id, ect..) varies depending on the cpa network, but usually they will have some documentation of some kind which can help you set this up. Talk to your AM if you are totally lost.

    Your welcome mate, always willing to help out a fellow canuck.

    Never be afraid to ask good questions. The only stupid questions around here are the ones that can be answered easily by using the search button or google. :)
