    After a ton of veriffication I've just got accepted by PeerFly. I know nothing about them though I've just been told they are good. I would like to double check here. what do you guys know about them? Are they serious? Are they paying in time? Any advice and review would be appreciated.

    So far I have been annoyed due to the fact that everything I want to run has to be pre-approved. After all the verification they do, you would think they could be a little more liberal about opening up campaigns. So I take my business elsewhere and they miss out on the cash

    The advertiser sets the terms. It has nothing to do with the network.
    Just because you uploaded a photo Id to your networks system does nothing for the advertiser.

    Take it you don't understand how it works.

    I understand plenty!!

    The same exact programs they require approval for I can get at MaxBounty or Neverblue without any approval required! So that is who I do business with.

    Your better off with MaxBounty & Neverblue in the first place.
    But my last reply still applies, It's upto the advertisers to set their terms with each network.

    I do agree it's a pain in the ass, I have the same issues with CPAWay, but they are a great network, always pay me on time. And it takes around 15min to get approved for every offer i wish to run campaigns on. But none the less it is a pain in the ass.

    Below are some posts on this forum that review and recommend us.

    Be sure to check out our reviews on AffiliatePaying. We also came in second place this year for OfferVault's second annual survey of networks. You can see those results here: Top 10 CPA Networks Revealed at OfferVault.

    Honest and legitimate publishers have no problems with getting paid by us on time. :)

    We've been around since 2008 and have no plans on going any where. We're in this for the long haul. :)

    Reply to the denial email that you received and we'll work with you to get you approved. Approval only offers are limited to publishers who we know can push quality traffic. Uploading an ID does not verify this.

    I was on vacation for 4 days and was running a 100% white hat campaign with them. When I came home I saw an e-mail asking for my traffic sources (I blank referrer with every network I deal with which is mainly because I don't want people seeing my LPs and secrets). There was a follow up e-mail the next morning from them also during this time frame I was on vacation linking to a thread here about a black hat technique that I NEVER implemented on their network; in fact if they had half a brain they would have seen that method would not even work for the type of offer I was promoting in my PeerFly campaign. By the time my 4 day vacation was over I was banned and that was that. I can understand where they're coming from but my campaign was 100% white hat and surely converted for the advertisers as these were real interested leads and there was no deception involved and just because I discussed a theory here on an unrelated matter and responded slowly (4 days) to their initial e-mail because I was on MOTHERFUCKING VACATION is no reason for a ban, they would also hear no explanation even provided traffic sources and that was that.

    I don't know how other people operate but when I go on vacation I go on vacation. Big clients have my cell number and that's it, everyone else has to wait a couple of days.

    As far as I'm concerned I've heard good things but either my AM or their customer service rep I dealt with blows a rather large cock that is badly in need of being shaven.

    Just my personal experience though, I have friends that have done great with them for many months.

    Looking down at the top of your mom's head
    Peerfly has always been legit with me. I was blacklisted once on an offer by the advertiser due to low quality traffic on an email submit (not easy to get high quality traffic with email submits, everyone wants to bail when they get to page 2).

    I have been approved for 2 of the "pre approval" offers and denied once as well. I don't push huge volume there so that is to be understood.

    My advice is to split test a few offers with PF and another major network and check your EPCs.

    The interface is one of my favorites, up there with Neverblue's, totally custom, easy to use, easy to place pixels and use subids, etc.

    Go for it dude, just don't try to push huge volume with email and zips unless you can convince your traffic to complete the whole process, or you will get right to the point of kicking some ass and poof, advertiser blacklists you.... nothing to do with the network.

    That's my 2c...

    Cover your tracks good, otherwise they will ban you without blinking. They have reputation to ban anyone they don't like without explanation.

    Peerfly sucks.
    They shave, steal and ban you for BS reasons.

    Stay away from them.

    It is so easy to get into a ton of MUCH BETTER networks....

    Thanks for the comments! :) We'll be launching our new design shortly and our entire site is getting a makeover for the better. Everything should be even more organized and easier to use. :) Sneak peak: New PeerFly Design Coming Soon. (Please note that those screen shots are just mock ups and the content will change once the design is added.)

    We do not terminate accounts without explanation or reason. If he's doing something fraudulent, then that's of course a reason to terminate him. We have a reputation to terminate fraudulent publishers, we do not terminate publishers out of the blue or for no reason.

    We do not shave. If you were being shaved then it was by the advertiser due to your poor quality leads. You won't do this, but please post your PFID and I'll be glad to tell you why you were terminated. I guarantee it wasn't for a BS reason, you simply didn't like being caught doing whatever shady method you were doing to promote our offers. (Which BTW is probably why the advertiser was shaving you.)
