    If shaving/scrubbing (especially for email and zip submits) were what defined a network on this shit list - every single network would be on it

    Well, there are about 4 different threads on how to get accepted to any CPA network, search for that. Also, if you're not calling them/answering their call(s) then you will not get accepted.

    I used to get 35% conversion rates on an EDU offer I was promoting through MB. If they were shaving - then holy crap I had a hell of a conversion rate! Of course, I was *practically* lying (social engineering is more accurate) to the "prospects" about why to fill out the form, hence the conversion rates.

    But that's another conversation entirely....

    Oh, and when the jig was up - MB got complaint from one of the schools - they kept ALL of the money in my account - which was $1,000s that month (would've been my best month ever with them). They stole the money. But that seems par for the course in this industry. The only freedom you'll ever experience is selling your own shit.

    Hey, anyone care to post a review about TriadMedia? Or justify what's wrong with them?

    I just saw one f their offers on Offervault I'd like to promote (whitehat) but was hopeful of some reviews, any one else using these guys?

    Cheers

    Networks don't shave, advertisers do. I used MB with no problems, no matter what on every network there will be submits that shave. The same advertisers have their offers on most networks, so if you think MB is the only one shaving I guess you haven't tried out many other networks.

    MaxBounty is OK by me. Get paid on time. Been with them about 2 years now. I have no complaints. Maybe because I only make about 1K-1.5K each month thru them. Works for me! LOL

    Like every company, you WILL have a few issues eventually. IF you have ALOT of problems THEN you have issues. ;)

    CPABullet is nuts! Lost a lot of money with them. Did the whole we will pay you. Yep, up and down. Then they asked for additional info. Gave it. Ok we will pay you, blah blah blah. Then more info was requested (that I don't think they thought I would provide). Same promises a million times over until one day they said, nope not paying at all.
    I told them to fuck off and all that. Eventually they tried to get ahold of me again (maybe realized that loosing my biz was bad for theirs) but I say fuck it. I only deal with CJ and other big nets now...

    I started out in IM with MaxBounty. They were my first CPA company that I used. The first 2 months I had no problems with them at all. Then, just today, I lost 100% of the earnings I had accumulated with one publisher. They did not like my lead source, but people were inputting their CC info and not cancelling, so they are refusing to pay me. It's like $1000 they owe me.

    I had the same problem with another large network (no, im not telling which one) and the same advertiser, not liking my traffic for the same reason. Network X srubbed 25% and just sent me a wire for the rest. No big deal. MaxBounty told me to get bent, took 100% of the earnings, and when I asked them about it, they told me I am lucky to still have an account with them. And also that I am lucky they are even talking to me.

    They basically stole from me $1000 today.

    Done with MaxBounty.
