    Are you faking referer ? Maybe the network stopped ur conversions due to traffic referer.

    I'm having the same problem ... I'm in 4 different networks and they all didn't pay a dime. I've got around 50 people filling out the email submit and I got paid nothing?

    I'm faking the referer, that's not the prob. I have two sites: one bh and one wh site. On the wh site there is no sign from the bh site.

    What else could be wrong?

    Which network is the offer from, they might be shaving.
    Networks seem to be popping up like weeds these days.

    Ask your AM if the offer is converting properly, does seem strange.

    Is it a free offer? Try another offer on another network.

    which offer are you using BBBBB? I might try this out too ...

    I used the networks adjal, adjump, clixgalore and vcommission and different offers too. None actually paid and showed up any leads.

    Possible reasons starting with the most common one to the least:

    1- Network shaving (there are only a few networks that shave that much! 50 leads or so!). If that's the case, I suggest to never run an offer from that network! Choose a better network.

    2- Offer EXPIRED or paused at the specific network (Probably what happened). Sometimes even when offer expires, the leads still are able to go to the main site, but you don't get commission.

    3- Something wrong with the aff link retrieved.

    4- Don't know about the metrodate offer, but some offers have diff requirements with diff networks. Maybe it isn't only an email submit as you may have thought. Maybe it converts when second or third page is submitted. Maybe it is actually per sale...etc.

    5- You have read your stats wrongly. Make sure the date periods are correct.

    6- A weird delay in their stats reporting.

    7- Network updating their system and you probably missed an email from them notifying you about that.

    I'm getting tired looking at the ads and trying out these different ones. I've got over 70 downloads so far and got paid $3,44 only - what a shame :( I could have made so much more money ...

    Does someone know any working offer at the following networks? I would like to have two different ads - one US only and one All country.

    - clixgalore
    - Commission Junction
    - Adjal
    - Adjump

    Can anyone help me out with the right offers? I'm getting kind of frustrated :( Thanks a lot in advance!

    Don't waste your time with CJ they are cheaters, Again first hand experience.
    There are many other affiliation site which do PAY and I am sure you will be wasting your time with CJ for sure.
    Go look for other direct site or affiliates and signup with them with your kind of talent you should be making money very fast.

    I had the same problem on cj with meetic. My personal opinion if that they get leads without impressions... so they will not count these.
