    I just got accepted at affiliate.com, and this is my first experience with CPA...I tried looking on their website, and couldnt find answers to any of my questions.
    These are very noobish questions, so Id really appreciate if someone can help me. Lets say for email submits, it shows sometimes in the ads sections,

    Contextual Creative.

    Click here to view the contextual link. Please be advised that this link is to be used for contextual traffic ONLY.

    Now my question: what if I link this to a picture of mine on my website? Won't the ad lead at the same place? Won't I get paid?

    Question 2: Then theres the HTML ads. On those ads in the html, I don't see my affiliate ID on them, its something like login.tracking101.com/ez/?????, and it's different from ad to ad, is that normal?? Why is my affiliate ID not the same that from the contextual. Is it just for personal tracking?

    Question 3: Kinda related to question 1...but different. For the HTML ads, can I use my own pictures to link to the offer instead of what they have? Wont it land to the same offer if i use that link ".../ez/????" How will they know if I hide my traffic source for example?

    If someone could answer these questions id really really appreciate it!

    They will not know if it comes from an image or a link, but you should check their terms of service just in case. anyway I don't see any reason why shouldn't you use an image instead of a link.
