    I've been with DateConnected for couple months now- I'd been making them and myself good cash thus far, my EPC with them had been $0.15-$0.16 having also reached >$0.20 at times. My EPC now is at $0.10, lowest it has ever been, I talked with these guys and the guy told me I will get paid $300 next period as "compensation", to "compensate" for this period of lower sales from my traffic lol.

    Dafuq is this. I'm confused. I feel I'm getting shaved my a$s off. And now they tell me I will get paid some extra cash? I mean if I'm getting shaved why they bother pay me extra, otoh it really feels like that coz I know, I really know that my traffic converts and the sales I'm seeing not worth the effort.

    Similar experience?

    If You Feel They Are Shaving Your Earnings,Switch to another affiliate program,like dating gold etc,
    but shaving is pretty common in affiliate networks.

    yes guys I know shaving is common Im not a total noob haha

    just asking if they NOW started shaving significantly coz for couple months I was pretty happy with the cash I was making for my traffic's worth but now it just starts feel like different. And yes I've tried loadedcash, crakrevenue, up4it, mtree and not been happy with any of conversions recorded on those- it just so happened that dateconnected stood out up until last month that EPC just dropped like this

    abhi I cannot pm yet- are you an AM with a specific network coz I'm already member with >20 CPA networks so getting onto another one not a prbl for me right now

    LOL yes that is funny never seen a network behave like that before maybe they are cashrich who knows lol maybe the advertiser sent them $600 instead of the $300 with the intention that you will continue to run regular traffic with them.

    no- do I do that with tracking/prosper202? is this about placing a pixel on a thank-you page of an order so I know that it fires after a client has purchased a subscription?

    It depends on traffic mainly. well cant really say they shaving coz it maybe ur good/bad luck at times. maybe u'd wait a bit and see how its. change ur lps, try diff offers and similar.

    It's all part of the game.
    However, if you want just switch to some other networks.

    I would suggest you switch to another network ASAP. Before they give you $0 in payout!
