    I'm currently signing up with some CPA networks for a new project of mine. Would like to hear from veterans about CPA networks to stay away from.

    Experiences?

    We've had bad experiences with Click2Sell in 2015; not sure how the situation is nowadays but they were stealing money back then. We had considered taking legal action but as they are based in Lithuania we were advised it'd be a very complicated battle...

    Okey, noted, stay away from Click2Sell.

    Any bad experiences with CPAlead recently? Seems like people either hate them or love them...

    I would not be surprised to see EVERY CPA network mentioned if this thread grows legs because people are going to say, "XYZ Network scammed them" yet they sent traffic that was not legit or not approved.

    At some point we all had a bad experience (if you have been in the game long enough) with a network and it is usually not the network but us sending traffic that did not convert or was not acceptable.

    Case in point with me.

    I sent traffic to a network (won't mention their name so don't bother asking). They approved the traffic and my landing pages and even asked me to try and ramp things up.

    At some point the advertiser saw the landers and said they were not acceptable and stopped paying the network for the conversions (I had earned and been paid around 22K with them up to that point) so the network stopped paying me... I was/am out a little over a thousand dollars.

    Is it the network's fault? No.

    The advertiser did not pay them so how could they pay me?

    Was I annoyed by the whole thing?

    Sure I was but I understand the industry.

    Someone who does not understand the industry would say the network screwed them but the fact of the matter is that the network just did not do enough due diligence and make sure that my LP was acceptable to the advertiser... that is not a fraudulent situation but I know many would say it is.
