    Hey guys I have a quick question. I recently applied to a cpa network and they told me that I have to show them a screen shot of a media buy that I did that is 250$ or more to be accepted. I don't know why they are asking for this from me but I need to get into the network. So I wanted to know if anybody had any suggestions. Also I wanted to know if anybody would sell me there screen shots of a media buy that they did and I could just add my name and email to it with photoshop or something.

    If you believe you're going to make money with that CPA then just go and do a $250 media buy.

    I think Exact Match Media had me do something like that back when I joined. I don't remember the $ amount but I'm about 99% those are the guys that asked that of me.

    I'm surprised they would ask something like that. Is that the only thing they asked for, or did they also want all the normal stuff.. ID, proof of residence.. etc. Anyway, it's strange.

    Well when you apply for Taboola (it's not the same business I know), they either ask you for proof of high traffic, or 1500€ upfront to buy that traffic on their platform. I guess it's a filter in order to keep their number of members low while controlling the quality of their network.

    yeah it sure is. yeah... smh

    Showing stats of how much you paid for a media buy isn't enough for them to steal your campaign, lol.

    But this protocol isn't new. A few reputable networks do this btw.

    I don't recall as it was ages ago but I am sure they wanted all the typical stuff as well. i have no issue sharing that with a legit company and like Paper-Boy stated just above, it is not all that uncommon when you are telling them that you are driving traffic through Media buys.

    If you realize that the CPA firms are not your enemy but rather your partner and a conduit to make money then you feel a little more comfortable sharing and you would be surprised how being transparent in many areas makes your life easier when working with them.
