    alot of times the big sellers are running some sort of BH campaigns.
    The networks are not getting anything on the backend so are paying for nothing.
    Networks are well known to set the "shave" switch on so for every 10 sales you get, the network will credit you 7.
    You will find some places are real bad and will set this in their favor 3 to 7 lol.
    Best bet is dont ask and just scale up to compensate for this

    You should contact your Affiliate Manager and ask about this serious issue. It's your money and that AM is earning his salary because of your efforts

    I`m doing white hat methods i`m using PPC and i`m working with leads not with sales so i feel when my conversion rate is less than 5% the network shave all leads so i got zero leads per 100 click but if the conversion rate is more than 5% for example 10% the network give me just 5% or less sometime just 1% what do you think about that ?

    Well then your AM is a fuck3r.

    Contact his manager or different AM and if you are making a decent money tell them that you will leave network and spread the word about it around forums.

    I never hd problems with AM... Just be hard for them and remember - thay are for you, no other way!

    Once again.

    You are making money for them. Have BALLS. Kick their asses.

    THEY ARE FOR YOU, NOT YOU FOR THEM. If they cannot understand that, funk them and move to different company.

    If you are serious player, just make them to pay you. Really - people sometimes think that affiliate networks are god-like creations. How many times I have seen people crying about ad wor ds here but they never bother to contact them directly.

    GRAB THE PHONE AND GET YOUR HARD EARN MONEY BACK NOW!

    There is a thread around here where someone is explaining how we actually earn 10% from our leads or something like that. I looked for that thread, could not find it though.

    its not you.
    Look at the big picture. you own a network and 80% of your leads are crap. you need to stay afloat so you turn on the switch.
    You cant pick which affiliates are bad and which are good so you shave them all!
    Its good when your friends with the owner of the network. That always helps

    People talk about this imaginary "switch" cant speak for proprietary systems but DT and linktrust based systems have no scrub switch hit path does have this option.

    A big network to scrub you makes no sense, just means you wont know why sources are working and which arent, you cant tweak and wont be able to run a profitable offer and eventually turn off. Those who say big networks shave are just short minded to start with. I dont doubt some advertisers shave and since none of oyu want to admit it you shave yourselves too. Since your adding meta refreshes, iframes, etc... youre causing your own cookie to not load because youre trying hide your tracks and fuck yourself, think about it.

    Karma man.
