    so, what's the difference between PPI and PPD ? I seem to have found sharecash, and others for PPD but dont seem to know for PPI

    I cant seem to find any clear difference between the 2, so... If i were to upload mp3 files would ppi still be likely to receive revenue cuz it's unlikely that ppl would install unknown software when all they want is a mp3 file ? I dont know - for ppi is password protection of the actual file or is there only passpord protection for ppd, which leads ppl to a site where they have to filll in a survey like on sharecash which i'd receive revenue for ?

    You only need to know the meaning of those two abbreviations to know what's the difference.

    PPD: pay per download. There are sites which pay you a fixed amount per 1k download or view for each country (there were quite a few sites like this throughout the years, openload.co seems to be popular now), these are the regular type of PPD sites and there are survey type PPD sites like Sharecash, where you get paid when a user completes an offer, which blocks the download. The user doesn't have to download the blocked file, if he/she completes the survey, you get credited.
    PPI: pay per install. You get paid when the user installs an application on his machine or smart device (and doesn't remove it for a defined interval). You can find offers like these under app installs on most regular CPA networks or there are networks, which specialize in this.

    If you want to double-lock a file (lock the file itself, password protect it and lock the password too), it's possible of course. I was doing this myself on YAVback then when PPD was the shit.Be prepared that most torrent trackers are well aware of this since years and you won't be able to upload such files or compressed files at all for that matter.

    Yeah but tbf i can upload the actual folder containing the zip file and txt file i suppose ? And just passpword protect the zip file , and in the text file place a link to the text file on sharecash where you get the password

    What about PPI, though, since this is to do with software installs, would it not be possible with mp3 files etc ?

    you won't get away with this. PW'ed archives are a big no-no on most torrent sites and will be deleted very fast. Some sites even block certain file types from different categories i.e.- .zip .rar. .exe uploaded to mp3 section will be blocked (at least true on piratebay). Furthermore, nobody is going to fall for those tired old tricks in this day and age and not just re-download their mp3 and skip your locked files.

    PPI is better for software/games...possibly DRM'ed video if you can swing that

    well.....most ppi networks will give you some bundle software which you can combine with your own custom software so that is launches a
    "hey do you want this useless crap? click next if yes..."
    type pre-load window. If you take that over torrent sites it will get killed kinda quickly since
    it's about as obvious as it gets.
    So..another way is to run silently or integrate your own custom inconspicuous-tick-box type thing.
    Running silent is blackhat and therefore not allowed to be discussed here on "blackhat" world...if that makes sense

    Oh no way would I want these installs to be silent. That's illegal ! Like malware

    I meant if there's a way to legally place the software with the stuff , how do you combine the software etc legally ?
