    I've got an idea that what about you know the ringtone offers where you can send the pin to someone's cell phone and then they have to enter the into the site.

    Do you think you could away with asking them for the pin and then inputting the pin yourself onto the ringtone site using proxies?

    Do you think that's a good idea?

    Cheers

    Bruceorange, you're basically talking about host & post. You can technically do this for most affiliate networks if you get your new page approved first, or the method in which you're generating the leads. Just ask your affiliate manager. The advertisers don't care as long as you're sending quality/legit leads and since they are PIN verified, they know the subscriber is legitimate.

    Wouldn't this be classed as highly illegal though since they never actually accepted the terms of the ringtone sites? I mean $10 a month on some of the sites is a lot of money, I'm gunna get a lot of pissed off people right? r do you reckon I should just do it and go ahead with it?

    You still have to copy and paste the terms over to the new LP you make but you'd get to custom design the landing page. At least if you want to do it legitly. However most affiliate networks will turn a blind eye if you push enough leads. At least until they start getting complaints. On your end it's totally easy to ignore complaints, and yes I'm sure you will get pissed off people that sign up for your ringtone offers, but do you think they'll remember your URL a month down the road when they read that they've subscribed to some cellphone subscription service? It's highly unlikely. Plus the text verification PIN they are sent displays the cost per month for the service, so it's not 100% shady. When I did host & post for ringtones I was able to copy the T&C to my own site and get the affiliate network approval. Although it lowers conversion its better than not being paid :)
