    Hey guys,

    So i set up an affiliate site about 1 month ago and started getting views and a few clicks but today i got a chunk of money that doesn't seem to make much sense as you can see the affiliate is myprotien and they only sell protien but i have what looks like 1 sale of £720 is this a glitch and its a few purchases all come through together? I cant see anyone buying that much protein that's around 50 tubs of the stuff.. lol

    Any help would be great.

    Thanks!

    Have you had any problems yet like the network contacting you about the sale, or not getting paid on it, etc? If there are no problems, then pat yourself on the back and consider it a good commission :).

    If you're uneasy about it, you can always contact the advertiser or the affiliate network directly and just be open with them and ask.

    thanks for the response yeah it just seems wierd they only sell protein for like £14 each so for someone to spend £720 on that seems really strange.

    Thing like this happened for me before. As I was just joined to CPA network and started pushing traffic somemone bought products for 300-500$ in first 6 hours. I was told that I'm doing CC fraud, later I was told that leads are coming from same IP block and got banned. And for today I still have no idea what happened.

    You could maybe email the support of the affiliate network and confirm that the transaction was made correctly and is approved on the buyers end.

    It's not like they don't verify the legitimacy of the purchases before paying out to their affiliates, so definitely check with them now so you don't get surprised on the payout day. Because as mentioned above, it could be a cc fraud.

    Sometimes it could just be the total cost of the item bought and not your actual commission.

    Best option is to contact the company.
