    I have never seen such ruthless shaving from any network. Even the small broker networks shaves 80% less than Peerfly. I used to be a great supporter of Peerfly and been using it since it's birth. Even I have vouch for this network before in this forum. I am not sure what happened that make them such shameless thief. I used self hosted traffic analytic and I am sure they are stealing 60%-90% leads.

    A post about networks shaving pops up every other week. If you're being shaved it's by the advertiser due to quality. PeerFly does NOT shave.

    OP seems to be very frustrated. It would be better if you could give some stats also.

    to say that a network absolutely does not shave or absolutely does isn't really fair one way or another. it's hard to catch them shaving - advertisers do shave for quality - but some networks also do phantom scrub leads

    Shaving is very normal in email submit offers. Try learning more about how email submits work. LOL

    Quality my ass! Have you ever seen any better traffic than 100% SEO traffic. No matter what, who is shaving, the point is being shaved illogically. If you put entirely the verification on advertisers, most of the time they will not approve lead without coregs. And thats not what we signed up for. And according to you, as Peerfly don't shave they also don't protect affiliate's right.

    Sorry for my ignorance but how can data from "self hosted traffic analytic" can lead you to be sure that "they are stealing 60%-90% leads " ?????

    Statistics. That's the reason we use statistics to determine and assumption from precedence. I hope you are acquainted with the basic concepts of statistics.

    Let me be more clear with what I was trying to say:

    Self Hosted traffic Analytic is not equal to self hosted traffic Tracking platform.
    Traffic is not a measure of conversions.

    A) How about you place ur tracking pixel on the offer page and then see whether there is any discrepancy in the stats.

    B) If it was an email submit offer how about this -- create your own offer and see how many of your visitors opt-in ...

    Posts like this seem to be all too common. Are you sure they are shaving and not scrubbing? Scrubbing is usually done by the advertiser to keep the quality of leads high, I suspect this is what is happening in most cases. We really need to see your networks analytics and your analytics to make that judgment though.

    Here we go again... Just for the sake of humanity and being fair, proof would always be welcome. A single thread like this without any proof can be very detrimental to a given company's rep...Just shameful.

    I have made so far good experience with them, but I only sent 5% of traffic over there, as I spread it.

    Guys, it's very easy to detect the shaving. Also, OP is correct, advertiser's shave too much on Peerfly, because they get too many leads daily.

    scrubbing sucks with the cpa, especially if an offer becomes old.

    I've been with Peerfly for over 2 years and haven't experienced any shaving, it's most likely the advertiser.
